We will be performing scheduled maintenance on the Cryptic Account system tomorrow, Thursday, June 28th, at 7:00am PDT (click here to view in your timezone) and expect it to only last 2 hours. During this time, you will not be able to create or manage Cryptic accounts, create or track your in-game tickets, and players will not be able to log into the game; however, players already in the game should not be affected. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Thanks for your patience and understanding,

Come on Brandon, where is the spirit of Scotty? you know if you say your going to take it down for 2 hr's you have to have it up in 90 minutes right? You're not going to tell us how long it's "really" going to take are you?
This 'confusion' (=poor knowledge) is one of the reasons the term GMT should not be used any more and the term UTC has replaced it. GMT never changed because of summer. UTC never changes due to summer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gmt
Britain (including the observatory of Greenwich) during summers use UTC+0100 = GMT+0100
Most of Europe is currently on UTC+0200 etc.
My pet peeve regarding STO and times is that I haven't found any option to use a 24h clock in it. :smile:
How on earth could they possibly do more to inform people? They put a post up about it on the forum, and a message in a big red box in the launcher. The server itself is still up, and people who are logged on can still play.
I think some people need to have their eyes tested, because this is rediculous.
I was logged in and kicked for unknown (unstated) reason at the time they brought the Account Server Down.
It is confusing; the Server Status shows UP, but you can't login.
Yes they can do more as I previously stated. Like a link to an active official topic of the situation details so you don't have to search the forums guessing where the topic is! Especially since they tell you the check the Forums for more information!
Maybe a Yellow Server Status might be the answer, but it would have to explain clearly like you just did, "The server itself is still up, and people who are logged on can still play.", however if your not logged in the Server Status is Down for you.
