Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Routine maintenance usually takes less than an hour. If this turns into an extended outage, we will post details on the blog.

This is because the maintenance is handled by the system administrators over at Server Fault. They write on that blog about their ideas and interests, as well as server related stuff.

The Stack Overflow blog is for Stack Overflow related news and events - not downtime. This is likely because regular visiters to the blog don't care about our server upgrades and outages, they're looking for Podcasts and CHAOS news.
