    This is just an Idea but do you think it would be great if the site is "down" or being updated to have a Alert sent to our bb's instead of being scared that we will never see pinstack ever again.

    Re: Alerts

    That means each time hydn is expecting to do maintenance he must send a message to some 5,000 members, (not sure how many there actually are).

    I prefer word of mouth, or BlackBerry Messenger! Whenever the site is down Im sure hydn has communicated with at least one person, that person spreads the word to people on his buddy list, each of them spread the word on their buddy list, and before you know it, everyone knows.

    There are tons of members that do not participate everyday, and could care less if there is slight downtime.

    Also, if the site is down, if all the mods knew, then all the other stackers could just contact any of the mods to find out whats going on. So a message to each mod would be my preference, if any messages are to be sent. I may be way off, but that is just my 2 cents.

    It is a good idea but Chris is right, I'd prefer Hydn focus his attention on repairs, not courtesy email.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Also, there is UPOC, where there is a pinstack group to learn about outages among other thing. While emails are a good idea, I don't think its feasible. What happened this week was an abhorration I'm sure, and when Hydn does site maintenance, he typically posts when its going to happen when its down more than a few minutes. Just my $.02.

    Is it possible to re-route the DNS settings to get a simple html page with "pinstack is down"?

    That would be better than the browser timing out on the page request.
