Hello everyone,

There is a thin yellow banner that pops up to remind you about the upcoming monthly
maintenance. Please notice that the date on the banner is exactly one week later
than usual:

[REMINDER] The site will be down during the monthly maintenance scheduled
at 12/28 from 01:00 AM to 02:00 AM EST.


Thank you.

Thank you.

Thanks for the heads up. Whenever I see the banner appear I realize that in the
coming weeks the site will be down for an hour while I’m scrolling on my phone
at 1 in the morning and won’t be able to check bricklink

Thank you.

I have very bad eyesight for which I use various aids such as reading glasses
and I view websites in my browser at 120% or more. If the print is really small
I use a magnifying glass on top of that.

If the monthly maintenance differs from previous times, you would do better to
change the design of the banner, or even better: send all your customers
an email that this month is different from previous times.

I find the title of your post offensive to people with low vision and feel offended.

Surely you can do better ???

Yes, I can think of much better things to complain about! But, hey, if we didn't
have our share of negative people, it wouldn't be the internet I guess.

Have a happy day everyone!

I am sure soon someone will complain that the banner does not show the LGBT+
colors and feel offended by not being included.

I don't find Russell's title offensive at all, but you do have a good
idea in there about an email blast to sellers.

Thanks for the heads up. I look forward to the site going down every month.

Would it be possible to make the banner dynamic, so that it displays the time
in the user's current local time? I am very fortunate to live in the Eastern
Time Zone which BrickLink uses, but we've users from all over the world here.

Hmm, as everything is reversed in Australia, shouldn’t that mean that BrickLink
is only working for you when it doesn’t for us?

  Hello everyone,

There is a thin yellow banner that pops up to remind you about the upcoming monthly
maintenance. Please notice that the date on the banner is exactly one week later
than usual:

[REMINDER] The site will be down during the monthly maintenance scheduled
at 12/28 from 01:00 AM to 02:00 AM EST.


Thank you.

Are there any new features to be launched in this maintenance window or just
regular activities?
Backing up my store on Dec 27th to be safe
