Two nights in a row

    I've been having problems when I try to open PF. It just says database error and the problem lasts 5 or 10 minutes. Is that you doing something? or just one of those things?

    If it's between 7am and 8am BST (or, 1am and 2am Central time), it'll be the database backup. This happens daily around this time.

    It's when the new Mentors have to come in and do their cleaning shift around the PF Headquarters.

    Can't they do that at a more reasonable time? I'm a night owl.
