Another maintenance break looming on next Friday (30th of April)

We may need another service break soon due to some additional maintenance work, so we’re scheduling one for next Friday the 30th of April from 9 to 10 AM.

It seems that the translation plugin (that we installed several months ago) is still not operating correctly. In fact, when activated by admin, it may crash the whole blog by spamming database with failing operations. The current theory is that the activation runs in to some database locks whenever there are users present, so we’re going to try activation while blocking all access to the blog. Here’s hoping the issue will resolve this time!

Apologies for the inconvenience!
