I can promise you better updates in the future. I had a family emergency this weekend so I wasn't able to update our Twitter and two Facebook feeds as necessary. In the future, all social media channels will have updates.

Alternately, I'll try to post an updated on the HWC front page 24 hours before any planned outage.

Getting a placeholder up wasn't possible since both the primary and backup server were offline. Hence why navigation looked like there was "nothing" there.

If you aren't on social media, feel free to email me directly. skymtl@hardwarecanucks.com if you have any concerns or questions about an outage.

That's the best I can do guys. :)

Social media isn't enough, I know those were updated stating the downtown but no one follows social media really, so that's a null point.

With the servers down, there really isn't any other way. We've already tried the email route to our Newletter subscribers and that was shot down when everyone complained about "spam".

You were offered a great method to the madness, a site is down for updates redirect, with the large sum of money the site makes a mini banner and forwarding is not to troublesome to do, but then that is less cash in the hands of the admin team at year end so I do understand there.

All and all its HWC's site and they will do with as they please

Like others, didn't know the site was down on-purpose.
That said, good to know the site was down on-purpose.
