However, the line has been removed for tomorrow's maintenance because we have updated the messaging and will not need to take down the web and launcher. When those methods of communication are available, we'll keep all of them updated as needed.

It makes no sense to me that the forum would need to be down for 4 hours along with the game. Are you hosting it on the same server as the game? I have plenty of experience with coding and running websites and that's the only explanation I can think of that makes any sense. The only time one of my sites was ever down for 4 hours was during a DDOS attack or when switching hosts.
