All sites have these upgrades and they are necessary. Would be nice to be warned before they occur. Can plan to not be working on a hub, comment, etc. either before the shutdown or afterwards.
The site does warn us before planned upgrades.
But if there are sudden problems that arise, they can't. And it's just sort of a fluke that we the users wind up seeing the same "system maintenance" screen in both instances.
Well I guess I don't know where to look for the notice.
Same here. Although I do understand situations do come up that need immediate attention.
i think the suggestion is that although the message said "scheduled maintenance, "it was probably really an unplanned error...we just always see the same message

HubPages is going to be down for a couple of hours tonight, starting around 11pm Pacific time (in about 4 hours). We're going to be making a couple of changes in our data center that should improve the performance of the site today, and help us grow smoothly in the future. ...

This one is going to be fun! What I've observed on the forums is that there are a few, kind of unwritten cliques of hubbers who consider themselves 'experts' in almost everything and kind of try to 'educate' newcomers as if one must submit before them because these veteran hubbers have won Nobel...

Just curious. I did meet someone who used to make a living writing on Squidoo before they made some changes. I know some people on Bubblews who live in some "third world" countries that make enough on there to survive as well. It seems reasonable to me that there are at least a few...
