Dear BrickLink members,

The BrickLink platform will be inaccessible due to infrastructure updates during

your patience.

Kind regards,
Your BrickLink Team

Thanks for the notice

Will we see any differences or is it all behind the curtain?

It's all behind the curtain, there will be no difference to the appearance
or operation of the platform

times?

Tangentially. We have plans to rebuild the BrickLink platform in the near future
and will engage with all of our members when that process begins. However, this
downtime is scheduled for backend maintenance and will not affect the appearance
or operation of the website.

Just went there and it says that I need to pay for 3 of my orders from a year
ago!

I like the idea of the sale thing on the main page, but the rest in lacking.

Good to hear.

Currently dreading the day of the appearance overhaul.

Hi there!

I didn't receive a BrickLink message about this as a seller
Apparently still this bug on mailchimp whatever?

What if I didn't read the Forum, or didn't have a test buyer account
from which I dd receive the "Notice of Scheduled Platform Maintenance"
e-mail???

How many buyers and sellers will post in forum "Unbelivable, I couldn't
login for hours" just at this specific date?

PLEASE consider an internal on site notification system to communicate important
announcements to whoever is already connected or get logged in!

Thank you.

I received an email about this in my email that is linked to my Bricklink account.
Did it go to your spam folder by chance?

I actually got this email before I saw it on the forum.

Sylvain talks about it every time he can, so he tends to not repeat the details


The thing is, once, and I think it was about something unrelated to BL, he told
mailchimp to forget about his e-mail address.  And they did 🤷‍♂️

Exactly - that was like 4 yrs ago or such, and IIRC.

I went on their website and tried to resubscribe but it doesn't work like
this, you just can't, it's the sender who has to resubscribe you or such,
and AFAIK.

Perhaps a possible solution could be to change the email on your bricklink account
and then wait like 72 hours then change it back to your current one

Oh that'd make a total mess here

Plus it's not sure BrickLink would 'register' this change is such
a short delay and 'subscribe' me for the next e-mails...

Sorry, won't.

Thanks for the suggestion! We will have a site-wide banner announcing the downtime
closer to July 23rd.

Like a cookie based banner, the one people have to click ten times "x"
until it disappears, then later on comes back?

No problem, that's better than nothing as it'll decrease the requests
for Help Desk, it's worth it

The BrickLink platform will be inaccessible due to infrastructure updates during
a scheduled maintenance period on Tuesday, July 23rd from 9am PDT to
approximately 4pm PDT
. Should this date and time change, we will let you
know as soon as possible.

Also, nice to read maintenance is on PDT time while BrickLink's on EDT -
while accessorily I'm on WTH timezone.

Hell is in the details

Could you please tell what time is that in GMT?

OR at least explain what is PDT?

Not all of us are near the Pacific, which is a very big place anyway

Could that be changed to a time when we have the lowest traffic on the website?
When my company takes down our main website we always do it during the lowest
traffic time of the website, typically 2am-4am Central for our company.

What changes should we expect from this outage? Are only tech debt items being
handled? Moving servers? Enhance security features? What is the outage for?

But it looks like it is.

Also, they may not be able to make evolutions during plain night, especially
if part of the ITs / concerned staff are sleeping or not quickly available...

My company typically has outages from 2am-5am to avoid impacting our customers.
The IT staff shifts their work hours to best serve our customers. It can and
should be done. No other eCommerce site has a planned outage for 7+ hours in
the middle of the day.

Do remember that BL is a global platform. 9am - 4pm PDT would be 4pm - 11pm GMT,
and even later in the evening for most of the EU. Australia and eastern Asia
will have the maintenance during the night. Depending on where the majority of
BL traffic comes from, the maintenance window may not be "in the middle of
the day" at all.

I am aware it is a global e-commerce website, but just based on the US shop count,
I suspect that the majority of the sales are US-based, thus the middle of the
night for the USA would be the less busy hours.

It makes the most sense to have the workers work their normal shift. This site
is worldwide, and gets far more traffic outside the USA than I think you realize.
Especially from Europe.

Its one day, actually not even one day. I'm sure everyone will survive.

Depends what the middle of the day is?
It'd be you I'd try to impact the less clients and orders.
So maybe it's not USA time that counts here?
(I don't know I didn't make stats)
