It's been increasingly difficult to try and find times to reboot the server for general maintenance, without upsetting some players. We've grown large, and that means more players doing different things, and more players bossing. It's near impossible to find times that doesnt affect everyone.. especially with my busy schedule.
That said, starting tomorrow there will be scheduled maintenance window at 3-4PM EST every Wednesday. I will try and perform my updates during this date, and take advantage of the time for a quick reboot to keep things fresh and perform an off-site backup. Most times the server should be up within 5-10 minutes, and the entire maintenance window will not be required. For the most part, this reboot should be all that is required, however there may be additional reboots required for emergencies or events.
Tomorrows window will be used for just a quick reboot, as I continue to prepare the next update.
