Maintenance: Forums will be down Saturday night!

Mar 29, 2008

by TechUpdates handmade and vintage goods

EDIT:  We’ve bumped up the planned downtime by a few hours to allow for some additional testing.

Hi all,

Remember the forums maintenance that was supposed to happen last week?  Well it’s happening tonight (March 30th) for real!

The forums will be taken down around 1:00AM EST for approximately 12 hours.

We know that the forums are very important to many of you, so we’ll try to keep the downtime as short as possible.  Thank you for your patience as we keep Etsy growing!

Please address all comments and questions to the associated forums thread  (Until they shut down!)

    This is bad timing to shut it down on a SNS night! Not cool!

    SNS night = worst possible night to do this. from a seller's perspective. Even though I missed most of the SNS due to severe thunderstorms and having to shut down my computer, I was planning to do something for a few brief hours... (Hi sweetgracie!)

    haha I was sick all saturday and woke up at 1:00am and have been clicking forums thinking it would only be down a few minutes. I guess I should have followed the instructions and checked here earlier. =P

    Dear Forums: Please come back. If you do not return soon, I will be forced to shop and that would be bad because Etsy is already bankrupting me. Won't someone think of the children? Here, have a hankie and a nice, steaming cup of hot SQL injection and get better soon. xoxoxo
