At some points in the future this should be where notifications of usually scheduled server maintenance will be for those not watching Development.

During those announced times the server may be offline. Every effort is currently made to limit downtime.

Thank you for your patience.

And for the first notice...

Sometime between Thursday the 30th of July, 2015 and the 1st of August, 2015... there may be some scheduled downtime to perform some migration.

Again... thanks for your patience on this. :)

Provided everything goes well in the next 24 hours or so I'll be remigrating the DB now that I seem to have access.

So Sept 3, 2015 late in the evening there will some scheduled downtime. Did this ~9 days ago once on the original DB with the same code. Approximate time should be about 20 minutes perhaps a little less. I'll try to do this as late as I can (EST) but we really need to get the HEAD here back to current master on GH dev.

Thanks again.

Re: @Marti:

Done with migration... in validation, which comes with this, encountered the following script names that didn't have source on S3:

  • Hello World
  • Bypass YouTube age verification / Youtube-Altersverifikation umgehen
  • Crowd Task Google Search Link
  • Swearify-hansenED
  • Charcount
  • Swearify
  • Under Research Works

All the above scripts without source have been deleted as their respective user... except for @sizzle 's "Hello World" since I don't have that access but he has been notified to fix it. If you have a script name of these please re-upload your script source at your earliest convenience. Probably should have nabbed the username too with these in the console... but hind sight is always 20/20.


Thank yu for the site, the maintenance, and the updates!

The about page on one of my scripts (the only one that has one) is an older version. Is there any hope for those?

Near Oct 3, 2015 there is some server maintenance scheduled. Approximate down time should be less than one hour... perhaps shorter on the optimistic side. Again... I will try to do this as late as I can in the evening EST.

Thanks for your continued patience. :)

Server maintenance complete. Total downtime was approximately four (4) minutes. :) Appears the new back end is working as expected so far. There will be more at a later date but that will be announced as usual.

It's that time again... announcement for later this evening... there is some scheduled maintenance. Expected downtime should be approximately 15 to 30 minutes... perhaps shorter. The usual doing it as close to the end of day EST today is planned.

Patience is a virtue. Thanks. :)

The boat leaving for the mainland leaves in five minutes. Drop what you are doing...

See you all on the other side soon.

Maintenance complete... approximate downtime was 8 minutes. Until the next time... Thanks guys and gals. :)

Gearing up for a DB migration, probably next week with projection of 30 minutes (perhaps less), just doing a pre-notice here... will have more details the closer it gets. Finalizing a few ideas to limit downtime. Until then.

Okay... aiming for Monday evening the 15th of Feb, 2016 (and at latest Tuesday evening the 16th, of Feb, 2016 pending any surprises before deployment) for the DB migration... still awaiting final testing on development in between afk duties.

Thanks for your patience.


Assuming you are seeing this... there is active server maintenance going on right now... the server will be up and down multiple times and will take some time.

See #944 for status updates.

In about 40 minutes I'm taking the server offline to do a much needed backup... should be approximately 10 minutes.

See you on the other side.

Heh... I should know better than to do anything on 4/20 ... bizarre dependencies... working on it.

Guhh... VPS just posted their maintenance:

18th May 2016 04:00 - 05:00 UTC
18th May 2016 05:00 - 06:00 UTC
18th May 2016 07:00 - 08:00 UTC

So we'll probably be down somewhere in this range. :\ Apologies for the late notice but they just left this a little over an hour ago.

Sunday, June 19th or Monday, June 20th, 2016, late in the evening EST, there is some scheduled server maintenance. Should be ~15 minutes or less.

Thanks once again for your patience.

And we're reworked... approximate downtime was ~32 minutes. Took a little longer than I expected for the back-end rework... and we're re-snap-shotted too.

Time for another backup... should be about 20 minutes later this evening the 24th of July, 2016.
