Well Everytime the site is down for maintenance it shows "Guarding new features" .But wouldnt a message like "Having maintenance work.Will be back soon " more apt ?1-2 years before this message was meaningful because we had a new feature every week. These days we dont see any new features at all .Just my opinion.

    Yea. But then if they did that, it would look bad. Rly. Maintenance every 4-hours, everyone ? ;)

    This site really has a problem regarding the way they handle the scripts and AJAX/JavaScript on here. Way too much of that. It's almost abused. Why check the SmartScore every 1 seconds ? and the PMs every 5 seconds ?? That really doesn't work on a large-scale website. It just lags everything, and when a script crashes on the server, since it's so dependent on them the whole site crashes. And they really need to give their server a boost. It's much too slow.

    Love this chatter. Thanks Aravind. We are launching a new partner tomorrow. It is a community college offering a MOOC. So we had to make some changes. Yes there are a lot of feature requests and we will get to them soon. Thanks for your feedback.
