The recent outages seem to be of the unscheduled type..but as mentioned elsewhere, if they *are* scheduled, it would be nice to see an announcement ahead of time.
Nope, they are fully unscheduled.
Yeah, I figured. And Matt already addressed the communication issue earlier so hopefully there might be a little warning for any *planned* outages in the future.
As we speak, Matt is waiting to find out whether something he just changed will prevent them from happening. Fingers crossed!
Of course I hope it works, especially given all the work the support team has been putting in, and I'm in favor of shutting down bots and trolls on general principles. But..it's hard to type with my fingers crossed. :p
