Currently the offline page points users to the blog for more info about the outage, but there isn't actually anything posted about the maintenance.
This is a bit misleading.
If it turns into an extended outage, we will post details on the blog.
What's bothering me is that it doesn't tell when the maintenance started. If I was a new user for all I knew the maintenance could have started 1 month ago or 1 minute ago; in the former case I won't come back, in the latter I'll come back in a few minutes.. If it says "it usually lasts an hour" but doesn't say when it started, I'm just confused.
