On Region Restarts:

Regions will be restarted if they have been running for more than 14 days on Tuesday (Main Channel) and Wednesday (RCs) regardless of whether or not new code is being deployed, for the general health and well being of the Simulators.  Nothing beats turning it off and then on again … once in a while.

As always, please plan events around these maintenance windows.  However, if you are hosting an event on Tuesday or Wednesday when we’re not deploying new code, you can restart your region ahead of time to avoid interruption.

3 times is the rule to make it run just right \o/

Don't suppose LL will bother until the roll to LeTigre is nigh.

It won't help those whose Main Server sims (like mine) were restarted for the third time in three weeks. 

I used to think that LL, which often a bit remote, actually DID know what they were doing.  I no longer do.

Yes well.  I wondered what the server version was that we were rolled to, but since there are no release notes even now some 12 hours after the roll, they are anyone's guess.

Yeah sure. FAIL.  OK maybe the notes for what is to Roll to Snack will take time, but the notes to what you already rolled cannot be THAT hard to publish.

Dear God LL just how disorganised are you going to get?

PS Yes.  I'm sorry.  I'm being critical.  Again.  With reason this time!

"Messaging" is this case refers to region crossing messaging, not communications through channels like this forum thread, as per:

[2018/04/24 12:02:34]  Rider Linden: So, The internal fixes on the RCs from last week should be rolling to the main grid this week. Snack is getting a new roll that we hope will address some of the region crossing issues.

I know right.

But,  I'm going to go way, way, wayyyyyyyyyy out on a limb here and suggest "internal fixes". You heard it here first. *dusts off hands*

@ Inara

I did realise that "messaging" was not posting in here, but thanks for the comment.

Well, we have now also had the LeTigre Roll and STILL we have no Release Notes or New Release thread in here.  Now many folk will say that it is not important but I disagree.  One of the things the Ebbe and previous Linden CEOs have promised us time and again is better more reliable communication.  It just isn't happening. 

If SL was a small operation run on a shoe-string by part-timers this might not be a surprise, but SL is a business... a large PROFITABLE business run by full-time paid professionals!

So I must conclude that these professionals either cannot be bothered to communicate with their users, or the chain of command at LL to get permission to post is so tortuous that they just don't bother.  Either way it is extremely UNprofessional.
