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

I saw the blog post earlier, and today the banner that also links to the post:

We will be testing our redundant datacenter at 16:00 UTC - hopefully you won't notice (except for this message)

Right at the start I thought I saw some unexpected behavior with my rep on the site, but apparently my brain isn't able to grasp UTC :D.

When it starts, is there any place where (and when) the SO team would like to receive feedback, if any at all?

16:00 UTC hasn't come yet, it's 45 minutes in the future at time of posting this comment. That being said, if you have a specific problem/bug on SO, just report it here. – Mat Oct 13 '12 at 15:13
D'oh, damn time zones making me feel stupid :D - updated my question, thx for the response. – Jeroen Oct 13 '12 at 15:28
Well, I can't speak for the SE staff, but problems during/after these types of things are usually discussed here on Meta when they happen - often with a bunch of rapid-fire duplicate bug reports with varying levels of annoyance/desperation/outrage at SO being down ;) – Mat Oct 13 '12 at 15:31
The blog post actually says 3PM UTC, we're already half an hour past that and everything seems to be working fine. – Yannis Oct 13 '12 at 15:32
...and after the short break, everything's back to working normally. – Yannis Oct 13 '12 at 17:25

Meta Stack Overflow is where you should report any persistent issues you experience with Stack Overflow or Stack Exchange in general. Make sure to tag your questions or , and give as much information for the problem as possible.

In case the unthinkable happens and the sites go down (for more than a few minutes), check out #stackoverflow and #stackexchange on Twitter for updates.

Was just about to write that, we will keep an eye on #stackoverflow . We will probably aware of any issues, the most helpful thing might be odd things that don't seem to be working right once we are up an running from our secondary DC in Oregon. – Kyle Brandt Oct 13 '12 at 15:38
