Need Feature: Down For Maintenance

Got caught the other night when the API was down for maintenance.
I had a design approaching being complex, so the first two times I tried to load and it timed out I figured I needed to examine the file.
Then I got smart and tried a simple, previous design, and it also timed out.
Then I got even smarter, and checked:

Okie dokie, the system was down for cleaning, upgrades, etc. Happens all the time on the Internet. I have no problems with that.

What I am wondering though, is how hard would it be to shanghai the upload during this down time and flag a different response box for your browser than ‘Timed Out’ with a nudge to check your work.
Could even be as mundane as DOWN FOR MAINTENANCE response.

A minor setback, but it would have saved me staring at my design as much as I did if I got pointed to the StatusPage sooner.


I’ve been luck as too not have run into this yet, but I agree that something like this would be nice to have and would be so much less frustrating for people.

Thanks for the suggestion! I’ll make sure the team gets them. I’m so sorry for the trouble.
