The Hawaii news and opinion site, Civil Beat, has been offline for all of February 2 and 3. Visitors to the Civil Beat site see the following message:

We are undergoing maintenance.

Civil Beat will be down for just a little longer while we finalize some maintenance work. We apologize for the inconvenience. We expect to be up shortly! For updates, please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and The Beat Live Blog. Mahalo!

Subscribers received the following message this morning by email:

A Note From the Editor:

It was a long day at Civil Beat with our site down for maintenance work. We're sorry you didn't get The Morning Beat yesterday morning. We were waiting to send it until the site was back up. Problem is — that took until late afternoon.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience. We expect that we will have to shut down once more for a brief period. But in the meantime, we're back with you.

I do hope you missed us. We hope this never happens again.


John Temple

Editor & General Manager

It is not clear why a site set up by the founder of E-Bay would have such difficulties.

UPDATE February 4: Civil Beat is still offline.

UPDATE February 5: CB: Civil Beat Is Back — We Apologize for the Outage
