Planned CSN outage

Options

Hello everyone, 

Between 3:00 and 4:00 Eastern Time this morning, CSN will be taken offline for about 2 hours.

Exhaustive efforts were made to find a way to restore all private messaages. I'm not qualified to provide technical details but the bottom line is that all private messages that you sent from September 2009 forward will be restored. That is as far back as private messages went prior to the recent upgrade. However, it was only possible to restore received private messages from September 2009 to October 2010. Messages from 12/22/12 to present, of course, are already available. Luckily, you will be able to access received messages via your sent messages if you kept them in a thread there.

The other thing that will be done during the outage is your friends list will be reformatted a bit. Friends who are online will display at the top of the list and alphabetized. Beneath them will be the remainder of your friends, also alphabetized. Since there is only one list now, some friends may appear twice. This is because there used to be two lists, one of people who friended you and another for those you friended.  All you have to do is unfriend one of the duplicates to correct the list.

Best,

Greta
aka Your CSN staff
