What the Scratch website looks like when in maintenance mode.

Maintenance mode is when the Scratch Team is modifying code on the Scratch Website. The website is only available to Scratch Team members during this time. Before the maintenance screen appears, the Scratch Team often gives advance warning in the Announcements forum, the news, and/or their twitter page, unless the maintenance screen is only in place for a short period of time or is for an unexpected reason. Throughout the duration of the maintenance, resources such as images used in Scratch Wiki signatures and saving project changes are not available, although Scratch 1.4/2.0 is available for download.

History

The 1st maintenance mode page was headed "Server Maintenance" and features the Scratch Cat holding a drill while repairing some servers. Below Scratch is some text pointing towards the Scratch Team's Twitter account, and a link to download Scratch 1.4. At the very bottom of the page is a sign off by the Scratch Team.

The 2nd (and first one for Scratch 2.0) maintenance page featured Pico and Tera in yellow construction hard hats and Pico was holding a wrench. It was headed "We're working on our servers. Scratch will be back soon." Like the newest version, it had a Twitter feed. The page title is "Scratch is down for maintenance!"

The 3rd maintenance mode page features the Scratch Cat drawing on a whiteboard and a Twitter feed. It is headed with "The Scratch Team is making some changes to the website." It gives the user a suggestion to refresh the page and a reminder that he/she can still use the offline editor. The Scratch Logo is pinned at the bottom. The page title is still kept the same ("Scratch is down for maintenance!").
