So this time I’m saying “tonight” at 12:00am, even though it’s technically Friday. Completely inconsistent, maybe, but it just sounds better.
This maintenance window will last about 2 hours and, unfortunately, there’s not a whole lot of sexy stuff to show for it. This update is predominantly back-end work, along with bug fixes and configuration changes, that will allow us to start collecting additional information in preparation for new features down the line. The good news is that the site should be a bit faster once it’s complete.
Thanks for your patience. We try to get this stuff done as fast as possible at the slowest part of the day, but unfortunately for those in the GMT +n zones of the world, that’s prime Blipping time. We’ll keep it as brief as possible!
Update: Things are going a little overtime. We’re just optimizing some database tables, then checking to make sure everything works, and we should be back in 20min.
