Is there, or does anyone have, a place where an announcement could be made when it is known that the board is down?

Last time it went down I spent ages trying to fix the connection my end and worrying horribly.

If there isn't, can anyone suggest a place where it could be done?

There is a thread on Lime Green Musings to which some of us flee when CBB goes down....

And there is also a Facebook group.

It usually gets mentioned on Lime Green Musings - here. There's a thread in the Completely Off Topic section called "CBB down". You have to register for LGM membership, but the members are pretty much all CBB members too :D .

There's also a CBB Facebook group, here. I know not everyone's on Facebook, and that some people prefer to keep their CBB identities and real life identities separate, but it's an option.

Failing that, sites like www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com will tell you if the site's down. Not foolproof, but usually quite reliable.
