Site Maintenance Mode

At various times it may become necessary to switch GuildStats.NET into a Site Maintenance Mode.

This means that the site will go into a view-only state and no changes will be able to be performed.

The only part that is not affected by this change is the Forum.

Usually this means the developers are doing some time-consuming work on the background data, either tuning, cloning or in more extreme cases changing the datamodel to be able to keep the site smooth-running, and prevent data loss or corruption while this is ongoing.
Responsetimes while site is in maintenance mode may be slower
