Progress bars need to be useful

For example, creating a snapshot there is no way no know how long it will take. The progress bar simply stays close to the beginning forever.

    Right now, I have a droplet being created from a snapshot on ams2 (with larger disk) : progressbar is at about 5%, message says "Approximately 57 seconds remaining", it has been like that for at least 30 minutes already. Hope it will end at some point, would be great to have a more accurate progress information.

    This is a problem with the droplet timing. They will look into and fix the problem
    Yes the service is actually deployed in 60 secs. but that was a tech error..

    We're working on improving some of the percentages on some backend tasks that currently aren't yet as informative.

    Thanks!
