Hello everyone, 🚀

The maintenance will take place [u][b]today[/b][/u] (very soon), between [b]8:00 AM UTC - 9:00 AM UTC[/b]
(3:00 AM EDT - 4:00 AM EDT)
(2:00 AM CDT - 3:00 AM CDT)

We are hoping to have minimal disruption, but we want to let you know in case you wonder why you cannot access SW 😊👍

[b]Please note:[/b] when SW is back online after the maintenance, Private Messages will be disabled for 30~40 minutes.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Have a great day! ☀️🌟

Hello. The maintenance/upgrade is now completed. We've had a few unexpected situations that caused a some delays, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Private Messages are back now. 👍🏻

This totally throws off my schedule. I had planned to play SW games from 2 to 3 am, and then message people and rub my scores in their face from 3 to 3:30.

Oh well 😕 thank you for the heads up

@lumberjackslam is this bullying right in front of admin eyes? I hope you have an allergic reaction to your frankincense next time you play simara

You know I have never heard this one before:

My words are in line with the more competitive direction that the admins want to take the site.😔 Sorry I don't make the rules. 😝

It's that time of the year where my life loses all meaning till the site's back up. *tiny violin plays*

Thank you so much, for striving and working so hard to make Similar Worlds, the best social media site, available to me. I have never joined any other, than EP and now SW.

I always appreciate your efforts!!! I absolutely love, being a member here and interacting with everyone else!!! 😊👍🏻
I could have slept through this if it weren't for a nightmare. 😒 Oh well, thankfully it rarely lasts for the full window and usually is only down for a few minutes within that, if at all. I'll be fine I think... I hope... 🤣
Crusher69 · 56-60, M
so now I have to get the complicated timetable conversion out to understand UTC/EDT/CDT and convert it all to Paradise time 🤣
Nuno · Admin
@Crusher69 Google "utc time", and compare it with your current time to see the difference. Then take that difference relatively to 9:00 AM UTC :)

Thanks for the heads-up!
Why is maintenance necessary for small websites like sw and bigger websites like google never shut down for maintenance ?
Nuno · Admin
@mysteryespresso For that reason exactly -- because Google (and the big ones) have enough budget and staff to be able to have a farm of servers, so when servers need to be updated, they upgrade one server at a time, and switch/failover the services to the other servers (for example).
this should be fun, to see how messed up every thing is when improvements are finished,,🤕
@jackrabbit10 server upgrades have never let to any issues as far I recall. (Not for users anyway. I have no idea how much the admins were stressing out each time. 😅)
