GUNS is DOWN YET AGAIN!
« on: February 24, 2014, 04:01:43 PM »
I think this is clearly a sign of things to come, this uni has been a pain in my ass and with all the down times, it's become an even more of a pain my ass. I think it's time to move on we will see. . BFG the Uni was fun but tedious, if you want my money bring back Original.

They gave us plenty of warning about this down time. I would rather have this than when it goes down in the middle of active play.

We announced this outage on Friday so that we could upgrade our server. I'm sorry for inconvenience, but we had to do maintenance.

I've been on for about 15 minutes.  You might need to do that reset Matt mentioned in the original notice.

From Matt's original notice.

During this downtime we will be moving Original to a new hosting environment and upgrading the underlying code architecture. This should produce a better play environment for everyone. However, as a result of the move, you may need to refresh the DNS records for your local internet connection to reach the game at the end of the maintenance period. This can generally be done by restarting your modem, router, and computer.

It has been brought up before, and i think could be a big help to many people.
It didnt effect me as it happened while i was on FRS anyways, but i forgot about it as well.
I know we are warned, so i cant blame BFG in any way for my forgetting, but many people do the same as me and just close out of it so it doesnt get in the way, then forget.
Im not complaining, i know there are several ways to remember, including posting in an alliance forum, writing yourself a note, setting an alarm etc..

I also dont know ANYTHING about programming or code writing, but i feel like this SHOULD be a fairly easy thing to do.. Being to have the warning come up again, as Pooh said, "An hour before downtime".
just a message with "Reminder: SFC Hired Guns will be down for maintenance at _______"

Might never happen, and some people(including BFG?) might not WANT it to happen, but just an idea that i have seen many times, and i think is a good one.

Thanks for listening(:
