DO Ideas 2

I suggest you either show correct information on your status sit, or don't bother having one at all. My first day with you couldn't be worse

Currently your status site says that AMS droplet creation is back again, but on the main site it's unavailable and has been for a significant period of time since the 'ok' wS given.

My first day with you couldn't be worse. It's not that you're having problems. It's that you're playing the classic, tired old game of 'status update bullshit', which for us is the worst sign possible.

If you aren't going to be truthful with your status updates, just don't bother having them. Really, just don't bother.

    Thanks very much for the feedback, we've greatly improved the status page providing more visibility into the affected region and also we've been able to grow our engineering, site reliability, networking, and customer support teams significantly so that we can be much more reactive to any issues that occur. Thanks!

    If you're looking at the same site as I am, the status page still mentions the AMS droplet creation to be down (https://status.digitalocean.com).

    You may be confused with the 'top' message, which was about suspending droplet creation in *all* areas.

    I agree with you on the lack of progress reporting, which could be a lot improved.
