LAME signup during maintenance windows

I just signed up, went to create a droplet, and you're in maintenance. hardly a 60 second set up... waiting for two hours.

Perhaps you should warn about maintenance periods before letting people sign up thinking that they'll have a system running in a minute?

    We've done several updates to our status page and also integrated the notifications from the status page into the control panel, this way if a customer signups during a maintenance window and a particular region or the entire cloud is affected they can immediately see a notification of that. Thanks!

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for pointing this out. There are different levels of maintenance some of which are immediately communicated on the front-end others are not, but definitely something for us to look further into.
