Server Message before daily restart
#1
So earlier I was talking with one guy and about to trade with another... then it comes to 6am Texas time (12 noon in UK) and the server does it's daily restart.

I know full well that the server will be back up shortly so I stick around... the other 2 people, well I'm not sure they knew. I waited half an hour but neither of them showed up again.

My suggestion is that the server displays a short message before the daily restart, along the lines of

*Server will restart in 10 seconds, back online in a couple of minutes*

It isn't the server restarting, just one of my routers. It runs DD-WRT, and if I don't reboot it periodically, it will crash and require a manual restart.

I suppose that explains the random time-period the server goes down for!

But hey... a server message 1 minute beforehand would still be cool
