[06 - 07 Oct] - Important: Scheduled maintenance | Site downtime


Hi everyone, 


This is to inform you that our webhost (server service provider) is planning a scheduled maintenance of their equipment.  


During their maintenance work, it will cause periods of downtime (inaccessibility to the site) for all of the members of PoetBay because the server will be turned off and turned back on multiple times.  


Maintenance work will begin on :


Tuesday, 06 October 2020 

16H00 EST - 21H00 GMT - 22H00 CET



Maintenance work will end on :


Wednesday, 07 October 2020

03H00 EST - 08H00 GMT - 09H00 CET


We recommend that you do not post anything during this window of time (max. 11hrs), to make absolutely sure that nothing gets lost.


Our webhost assures us this is necessary, and says that their team will do their best to make it as short as possible.  They apologize to us and our members for any inconvenience.  We do as well.

What can you do? My Internet service provider has been cutting out on me frequently lately. We are at the mercy of those who own, but don't always effectively manage, technology.

Keep up the good work, Isabelle. We'll be back on the Bay on Wed. :)

We're not sure why they can't do their updates without making their clients' service grind to a halt like this... This will be the third time they interrupt our service (access to our website) in a year for updates or a mistake on their end. Before moving to the new server last year, and for eleven years, these things never happened. Again, really sorry about this. Not clear what's going on with our provider, but we sincerely hope they figure it out soon!
