You should expect problems when you try to upgrade the old with the new.
Totally agree wih this, its no different to critical updates for windows etc, if they werent needed they wouldnt be made in the first place.

[3] What is the set frequency of these upgrades?.

All day yesterday, I tried to access the dozens of queries posted in the social lounge, but when I clicked, there were no posts, just a small gap where they should have been, this has never happened before, so why this time especially, & could this level of disruption happen again?

I understand that it must be difficult to run a site of this size, especially if you are under restraints, but I think you owe it to all of us to explain, I hope this doesn't make me sound rebellious, I'm just one of the great CF community trying to find some answers, thanks.
This is a forum, no need to get so stressed over things!!!! :P

It wouldnt bother me if they went offline while they updated, thats what most sites do anyway. All that needs done is an anouncement a week or so in advance, so that people know about it.

When the site when down yesteraday, that wasn't a planned upgrade - I would provide warning. It was a crash which shouldn't have happened.
