Wow folks, sorry about the down time. Our server decided rebooting would be a good idea. We're working on tracking down the reason; in the meantime, everything should be back to normal!

    Did anyone notice anything peculiar before everything went to the land down-under in a handbasket?

    anyway it comes now. I thought it was a problem with the browser.

    the last thing I did was to post a question which spun around waiting for a while before I got a popup saying site was unavailable.

    Yeah, sorry about that :( We should have noticed faster, but our monitoring service seems to have simultaneously decided that a server that wasn't working was totally not a big deal..

    is there any chance you guys could put up a page somewhere that displayed the service history of the site? e.g. when it went down, for how long, main causes, etc? might even be worth showing some sort of graph that would indicate how stable it was.

    I don't know how big your team is, but it might also be worth putting up a beta page whenever new features are being added to allow a select group to try it out before releasing it out to the wild. I'd be more than happy to be part of the beta testing program.

    asnaseer—someday, perhaps. At the moment the site isn't part of a critical infrastructure, so we're focusing on other things. We actually do have a core group of users that tries features before they go out into the wild; I'll see what we can do about getting you on it. We have a pretty small team (1 full-time developer, though that's about to change, and only three other full-timers, with a few part-time interns). The leaderboards may well be back in the future, but I'm not sure when exactly.

    I write t3h codez. In seriousness, along with writing a reasonable chunk of the OpenStudy codebase, I guide the people writing the rest of it, such as mattfeury and dpflan.
