Last night the Games Workshop site went down, and for those of you that do not read White Dwarf Daily, this was a planned maintenance downtime. I have received quite a few conspiracies about massive price hikes, and more dubious reasons for the down time, but when the server came up, everything appears to be fine.
Currently the GW facebook page and twitter pages are also down, or missing. I did not find any pre-warnings about this, but I am sure they will be back. Either way, maintenance is not much news, so I've included the White Dwarf Daily post on the subject below.

Tonight from 7pm GMT the Games Workshop website will be offline for essential maintenance. A team of Techpriest Enginseers and their Servitors will be working through the night to ensure that it is back up and running by 6.30am tomorrow morning. Should you wish to place any webstore orders, please ensure that your transaction is completed well before 7pm - you wouldn't want your Citadel miniatures getting lost in the Warp. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter pages for further updates and information
Lets Have Some Fun With This
Just to keep things light and fun......... Go ahead and post up your most outlandish conspiracy theories about how this is not maintenance and is something much more devious.
Subjects that are out (because they really do not involve any creativity)....are price hikes.
Lets see what we can come up with.
