There have been a few server problems recently. Lots of questions asked, and a lof of time and energy spent trying to get and provide answers.
I think a lot of people would find it useful to have a link on the home page providing some info about what they should do.
Some basics I can think of:
<b>No scheduler response:</b>
<i>A message on the home page stating the problem and what users should do about it.</i>
e.g, When trickles are not getting through: <ul>
<li>Temporarily disable BOINC network access in Manager and wait for an announcement.</li>
<li>No need to suspend project.</li>
<b>New BOINC versions</b>
<ul><li>Links to BOINC main page and opinions</li>
<li>Links to possible issues</li>
My worry is the number of people who drop out temporarily or outright when the project doesn't work as expected. (lost 1,000 since latest trouble).
Finally, since server problem seems to have been solved:
<b>A message that everything's all right again!</b>
And send one to all the teams.
