Looking to announce scheduled downtime to all users in a highly-visible way, as well as other important information. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
A notice will be far more visible than a PM, especially if you style the notice nicely. It'll be the first thing that hits them when they visit the site, well before checking for PMs (assuming they bother to do so).I could do email, but would rather do private messaging. I think it is more visible and would result in more reads than a notice.
