Okay... we get it, there is a downtime!

No need to spam us with popup windows every five minutes just because theres a daily downtime.

WE KNOW THIS ALREADY!
GIVE IT A REST, MKAY?

I'm going mad bro.

I was going to start another topic to troll this but thought it better to give spitefire and crew a little break.

The choice of forum moved to is curious "Features and Ideas Discussion" instead of "Issues, Workarounds & Localization".

What is this downtime you speak of?

well, imo the popup window is a huge improvement over what we had before, just having your client suddenly go dead with no warning. That was much more maddening when you were trying to get that last thing done, and using the time in the bot left corner of the screen didn't coorelate exactly each time...

besides the popup allows me to literally time my eve actions down to the very last 5 seconds for every downtime then cleanly shutdown my characters, i love it!

I wouldn't call 4 warning messages in an hour "spam"

1 hr warning
30 min? warning
15 minute warning
5 minute warning+countdown

edit- I know this is more than usual, but was probably due to incorrect timings on previous messages regarding the planned extended downtime.

Thank you for your bugreport - ID104160 Title: (too much) shutdown notification messages and not all up to date

We were not aware of this problem, and have used your bugreport to create a new issue in our defect tracking system.
...



It's a real bug. ugh

Edit: @Glyken, normally there are 3: 1h, 15mins and 5min countdown. Today there were 5: 1h, 31mins, 22mins, 15mins and 5min countdown.
And not all of them have the correct DT message.
