Default Steam Scheduled Maintenance - Monday morning

Word over at Kotaku is that Steam with be down for scheduled maintenance on Monday 8pm - 12 am AEST (9pm - 1am AEDST) 9pm - 1 am AEST (10pm - 2am AEDST).

Steam Down On Monday: Stock Up On Provisions | Kotaku Australia

Quote:
Valve say that “some” Steam services will be offline during the scheduled server maintenance, but when those services are in-game matchmaking, in-game lobbies, downloading stuff from the Steam store, buying stuff from the Steam store and the Steam community, it should really say “most”. In fact the only thing it seems you will be able to do, luckily, is play games that won’t need Steam for online play.
It's a bit of a shame that even with Steam on all the time this info isn't first provided to customers by Valve.

I don't think it was highly publicised, but technically Valve did provide the information to customers first:

News - Planned Downtime on Monday, October 11th

I stand corrected. I somehow missed that when browsing the news page.

A little pop up when it loads would be nice too. I never go to their forum and rarely go onto the community TAB.

It was on the Steam news: News - Planned Downtime on Monday, October 11th

The Steam news is a good RSS feed to subscribe to. (Steam RSS News Feed)
