    CJ - Great Idea!
    I may be jumping to conclusions but it seems like CJ has modified their interface so that when there are indexing delays (or whatver) related to reporting that we can still log in to get links and so forth. The Reports tab now say "Sorry. This section is temporarily unavailable" but other areas (such as Get Links) work. This is a MUCH better solution than having the whole site down!!

    CJ has never taken their site down due to reporting delays. They usually don't even acknowledge them.

    I may be sloppy in what I mean -- I'm speaking of the times when CJ goes down inexplicably for what I've been told often relates to posting issues on transactions, etc. Now (if this is correct) only the reports tab will be unavailable rather than the whole site. I could be wrong, though! (wouldn't be the first time....)

    I just noticed this too:

    Run Reports
    Sorry. This section is temporarily unavailable.

    Now THAT is far better than just letting things time out!

    APPLAUSE!!!! STANDING OVATION!!!!

    There is an announcement up now which was not there when I replied before. They are not being truthful about the times listed as it occurred more than an hour before they said it would. That causes me to seriously doubt their contention that it is "regularly scheduled system maintenance" because if it was, the announcement would have gone up before it occurred.

    Your conclusions are correct, though it's not new.

    If I recall, they call this "read only mode" and announced that they could do this two or three years ago at a CJU. My memory is fuzzy on exactly when.

    It helps minimize downtime on system maintenance. Remember when upgrades used to have the entire interface down for a few days? That doesn't happen any more.

    It of course doesn't help or prevent any unexpected downtimes.

    sjangro - two or three years ago at a CJU.
    Can't remember exactly, but 2/3 years is about right, Todd was still at CJ.
    Anyway, reporting is catching up. They were late reporting
