Regular Maintenance Window, every 1st thurday of each month.
Fri, 01 December 2006 14:42
We decided to introduce a maintenance window every month, on the 1st thursday.
These maintenance windows will allow us to perform a better service, and prevent unscheduled maintenance operation.
We believe that having regular maintenance window, that user can be used to, will reduce the disastifaction of shutdowning the services.
Therefore we won't announce anymore maintenance on the forums, we will only announce the maintenance with the in-game announcement mechanism, along with the regular news system. In the near future we also plan to have a RSS feed for the maintenance announcements.
We also will try to inform players 30 minutes before the maintenance through the chat system of our online games, if the maintenance operation needs a server shutdown or restart.
All these maintenance will start at 10:30AM CET/CEST (France/Germany Time). Duration of the maintenance windows will depends on the operation, but should not exceed 1 to 1 and half hour.
The first maintenance window will take place on Thursday December 7th 2006 at 10:30AM and will last for about 30 to 45 minutes. During this maintenance, access to the website, along as the online games will be impossible.
Thank you for your attention,
Feel free to discuss this new system in this topic.
The Tech Team.
