I guess everyone saw that coming. Having no normal maintenance this week was a dead giveaway.

They always take 6 hours (except the recent downtime for the server consolidation, which came in at around 12 hours (edit, and hopefully before too many people complain) there have also been shorter ones, but 6 hours is really the standard timeframe for routine maintenance). IIRC it was explained once on some Q&A or blog entry, with some hints to the time it takes to have a controlled shutdown, routine DB-, hard- and software maintenance (backups?), patch installation, quick QA run, etc. There's probably quite a bit of slack in there to account for some less-expected surprise features too.

All in all, I prefer a well-planned and issue free 6-hour downtime to a slapdash 3-hour job, and so far that seems to be working well

Noted quite consistently they said, "Servers will be down", ONLY the servers.

So will the forums be down too?

Assume so... but you know the rest...

On the Internet, you can be anything you want. It is strange so many people choose to be stupid.

That's one thing that really annoys me, they kill the entire infrastructure during most maintenance. Could at least show a Twitter feed with relevant messages on the notification page.
