[IMPORTANT] "Map freeze"-maintenance in ROW on May 10th

Post by maiapas
Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all doing well.

We would like to give a heads up that there will be a "map freeze" in the ROW server. The map will be in read only mode and you won't be able to edit it for some time as the team is planning to do some maintenance work. This maintenance is the grounds for an infrastructure that hopefully will allow saving edits and displaying tiles faster.

All details:

[*]The "map freeze" will start on May 10th, at 7 am Israel time. All changes made until ~6:50 am Israel time on May 10th should make the cut for a tile build release before the maintenance.

[*]Please expect the "map freeze" to last 10 hours approximately. During this time, the only exception is that you'll still be able to update and add closures, from level 3 and up. While you might see the saving process failed, please refresh the map and you'll see the changes reflected.

[*]There should be a tile build right after the "map freeze" ends as well. Since the tile build on May 10th will start after the freeze and later than usual, it might miss the release window on May 11th and thus we expect the next tile build release to happen on May 12th.


We will remind you of this change again this coming Sunday, May 9th.

Thank you for your understanding,

Maia on behalf of the team

Hope you're doing well.

I just wanted to remind you that the "map freeze" in the ROW server is happening tomorrow, May 10th from 7 am Israel time and for up to 10 hours.

The map will be in read only mode and you won't be able to edit it for some time as the team is planning to do some maintenance work.

During this time, the only exception is that you'll still be able to update and add closures, from level 3 and up.

Thank you,
