Scheduled Maintenance

On Sunday, September 23, 2007, will be down for a few hours starting at 9 AM Eastern (UTC -4 America/New York) for site maintenance.

Around 12 noon, we completed our scheduled maintenance which included two activities:

  1. Purging the database - We purged the database of detailed information older than 48 hours in order to keep the database small enough for the system to load your stats reports as quickly as possible for you.

  2. Deleting spam/abusive accounts - We deleted numerous accounts that were registered for abandoned blogs and/or not in compliance with our terms of use and conditions of service. Many of the accounts removed were so-called 'large accounts', each of which were logging thousands of hits a day. This move also will help the database and the system to perform faster for you.
