sorry for the late feedback. Could you please check on the issues again and post your status. Everything seems to be working fine, but it is already 4h later. So if you still have issues we can look into those specifically, otherwise we already check if there was a huge load in the night.
Regarding your question: “Is there a way to check to see if Simscale is down or not or under maintenance?”. We are aiming for continuous availability, so we are working on making such a place completely unnecessary. But in case that we do not manage to do that at some point, I agree we should add transparency for the user. So I think it could be a good idea to add a live service status section in the forum. What do you think?
