Hi everyone,
Microsoft adCenter will be unavailable from 4 P.M. Pacific Time until sometime between 8 P.M. and 10 P.M. on Thursday, June 22, for scheduled maintenance.

Your campaigns will continue to run, but you won't be able to access adCenter until the maintenance is complete.

Thanks,
adCenter411

Draconian, I didn't see your post yesterday - sorry about that. How long were you unable to get in? Did this happen for anyone else?

Thanks,

Heads-up everybody, I just got word from our development team that they're extending the timing of the release to 7 hours. So adCenter will be unavailable until about 1 AM Pacific time.

And Draconian, I have the answer to what's in this release. Most of the changes are back-end fixes, but there's also going to be a change to the editorial review process for ads that contain potentially objectionable content, and whether or not some ads are delivered while they are under manual review. Ads in "Pending Manual Approval" (PMA) status that need further review will undergo editorial review for up to 10 calendar days before they are delivered to MSN Search. Ads will not be live during this period. This review is to prevent potentially objectionable content from showing up on MSN Search.

Thanks,

Maybe I missed it but why is this advanced warning not displayed on the MSN adCenter login page?

Don't know if the update screwed things up, but I added 3 orders yesterday just before the update and they are still sitting pending. Is your auto approval system now catching up?

Normally they go approved within minutes.

Simon, I think you missed the boat on that one. When the update started, the automated process would have been deactivated as that's where the updates were made.

AdCenter411, is there going to be another update soon? Yesterday when we were supposed to be logged out of adCenter I kept mine running and hit refresh at about 6:00. The tabs graphics had changed, I wondered if perhaps they were trying a couple of things with the layout. Any info?
