Every Week

I guess I am stupid, but every wednesday i find the servers down in the morning, and want to know WHEN they will be back. Every week I follow the link on this page (www.wizards.com/magic/magiconlineservers...) and every week it takes me to a 3 year old forum where no information about the downtime exists, which sends me to some useless blog which shows nothing about the downtime or any estimate. wtf wotc, get your crap together here. Why do I the consumer have to search long and hard to find the information which you as the GD Service provider should make easy to find. 

The Magic Online downtime notes are available here and are generally posted on Tuesday ahead of the downtime.

In the future, please be courteous and don't use an enomous, obnoxious font for your entire post or all caps in your thread title.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

Dual means two. A duel is a battle between two people. Lands that make two colors of mana are dual lands. A normal Magic battle is a duel.

Once again if there was a link and indicator icon located on the "login screen" of the client situations like this one would be averted.  Woulda been here sooner but my boy just had his appendix removed Sunday evening and this week has been hell.

Why have the link on that page not been updated?

Will it be updated?

Is it normal that notice of downtime is given in announcements containing other information as well?    
That page is old and out of date. The What's Happening Page has the current server status indicator and a link to the MTGO Group where additional notes are posted.

Ok, that kind of answers the first two questions.
What about the last?


I've just noticed a post with the title "Core Set Constructed",
wich contains some information like: "After the August 29 downtime"


May I suggest a more saying title and a bit more saying information?

Like, what time is it? Is there an estimated amount of time?
