Snow & Update days...Blahhh

Ok for the record I HATE update days, and I also hate the cold and its been freezing in California, we even had snow by the beach for the first time in 20 years! Check out the video.

I do understand that we need some downtime and fixes but of late the fixes seem to be less of an improvement and more a stumbling block. Its far and few between that the days we have an upgrade it goes smoothly and often takes days for things to normalise, by the time we do another update day is here. Am I saying anything new not really but just needed to rant.

New Feature in todays update include:

Improved Search function - I hope so search has been broken on & off for weeks and been working intermittently.

Next and previous button functions for the classifieds - Not sure if this was really a necessary feature but it does help make browsing bit easier & cleaner.

Non copy items are returned to inventory - I thought we always had this one but seems like somewere along the way it stopped working as it did so glad its fixed hopefully it will help with the inventory items that people seem to just have vanish.

There been a sandbox time limit and autoreturn added.

Report Bug has been moved to tools menu for those of you who may need to use it, it hasnt gone missing.

There are a few more but these were the ones that stood out to me. A lot of fixes, substantially more fixes then new features, that makes me feel a little better about having so a long down day.

The first hour or so seemed a bit rough, with a few annoying bugs, but things seemed to have stabilised so hopefully things will go well for the week
