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

Can we have the feature informing the SO users of the planned downtime start time and possible duration?.

I assume you mean for planned downtime? – Richard Sep 23 '09 at 9:14
Right : Updated question for this. – user134608 Sep 23 '09 at 9:38

Downtime across the sites is hardly ever that long that you can nick down to the corner store to pick up some supplies.

If things do take a little longer than expected, it will be posted on the blog.

Who's Nick and why is he at the corner store? – Eric Sep 23 '09 at 12:41
Nick's buying some milk duds and a box of jaffas. He's got a lunch date with Caroline and they're going out to a movie. It's a matinee, Top Hat. He was going to buy at the candystand, but this is just a screen in the middle of the park. So that option was out. – random Sep 23 '09 at 13:08
He's still with Caroline? After what she said? – Graeme Perrow Sep 23 '09 at 13:15
