We used to ALWAYS have a banner ticket running , counting down for maint . I can't see why we can't keep this simple and valuable reminder , active in game . We cover many time zones and cultures , also maint . has been postponed and is not always the same as before .
 This is not a COMPLAINT , I just state facts .

We had a banner doing a countdown???

I do not remember this.

IGG does not make in game announcements for anything.
You have to check the news section - and yes, I miss a lot of announcements because of this too.
(I even have it as my browser start screen)
Plus, (currently) the first page of the news section only shows current announcements on the top 4 and bottom 1 line... you have no idea how many times I have missed that bottom line...

only automated announcements for events or pirate kills etc. show in the right middle "message column".

Consider yourself lucky if a temporary maintenance gets announced at all... usually temporary maintenance is only pre-scheduled (and therefore posted) if there is a known Chinese holiday happening.

Regular maintenance is held/ has been held every Monday evening/ Tuesday morning.
The time it is held varies over the years but it is almost always in early morning hours of USA.

The last 3 weeks we got spoiled because maintenance was (announced but) not held and no so no one got DC and lost seeds in a while.
The DC and loosing of seeds due to maintenance has happened ever since auto planting was introduced. (June 2008)

Any seasoned planter just keeps 100+ of the same type of seeds in their bank or warehouse of the city they plant in for this very reason. (200+ if you run 2 characters at a time)
And the first thing they do after maintenance if they lost a few is to log on a 2nd alt and go collect more seeds after losing them after maintenance.

We also know IGG is incredibly BAD at staying to their own time table.
so always be prepared to DC/allow 1 extra hour if not more for maintenance.

This last 6 weeks the window of time has been small/short; 2-4 AM... which IMHO will/would only mean be prepared for dc outside of announced time.
(In the past 3 - 7.5 hours was allowed... see chart below)
