Essie Stepping Down as Site Manager
Just to let everyone know, Essie
has asked to step down from her current role as Site Manager, and go back to being a Moderator. Essie
has been serving as Site Manager for almost two and a half years, and I certainly appreciate all she has done in her role. She has certainly been instrumental in many of the changes that have occurred during her time as SM.
We may or may not be refilling Essie's
role as SM, but for now, iolite
will continue to serve as ACC's Site Managers.

Regarding Issues Earlier
Just to keep you guys in the loop, I spoke with my colo provider, and it looks like they had some issues earlier today on their end that may have impacted performance on the site earlier today between 2pm and 5pm ACC time. They are looking into a long term fix, and are aware of it, so hopefully the issues will subside until then.
Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.

Planned Outage at 12:00 Today
There will be a small period of downtime around noon today for planned network maintenance. There's a chance the site will remain up, but if it goes down, should be back up in about 5-10 minutes.
Watch our Facebook page for any unexpected changes to this.

Scheduled Maintenance Tomorrow
The site needs to come down for about 15-30 minutes around 5:30-6:00PM ACC time. I will post updates on the Facebook page if the duration should exceed 30 minutes.

Notices on the ACC Noticeboard
In the previous site Features Update the ACC Noticeboard
new thread alert was set to notify all members each time a new notice was posted there. This allows us to post some messages on the ACC Noticeboard instead of the Announcements board, and already a couple of notice types have moved to the ACC Noticeboard. One such notice type which has moved is announcing when people join the ACC Staff, but in addition to Staff joining we now also announce when people have left the ACC Staff.
The ACC Noticeboard also provides a place for topics which don't necessarily belong on the Announcements Board, but are of interest to some members. For example, even where members have flagged the Ask The Staff board they don't receive alerts for it since threads are moved to the ATS board rather than being created there. We've therefore added a thread on the ACC Noticeboard which allows us to update members who are interested in knowing when new threads appear on the ATS board. Another example is the thread for R&D Updates. Not all members are interested in knowing what the R&D team are doing, but for those who are interested there have been threads on the ACC Noticeboard for the last 18 months.
Over the next few weeks, more notices will appear on the ACC Noticeboard. For example, we will be starting a thread there to ask the Community for help in completing the New Leaf information on ACC. The thread will also inform the Community when certain areas have been completed.
Each time a new thread is posted on the ACC Noticeboard members will receive an alert for it. Thereafter, no further automatic alerts are received for those threads. Instead, members must choose which threads they'd like to receive alerts for. Simply click on the Notify Me!
button for threads of interest and this will ensure that you receive alerts when updates are posted on those threads.
If you don't wish to receive an alert for new threads posted on the ACC Noticeboard you can switch off the alert by editing your profile in the Board Settings
section. If you choose to switch off the alert please ensure that you check the ACC Noticeboard occasionally. This is because some ideas or queries which you may wish to post on Site Suggestions or Site Support may have already been explained or answered in threads on the ACC Noticeboard.
