We've just received an email from Scotland's People:
Last month we contacted you to let you know that our website would be unavailable from Wednesday 7 September 2016 until Monday 12 September 2016. We are writing to let you know that this site downtime has now been postponed to a future date. We will confirm the new dates as soon as possible.
Looks like the relaunch of the website might have been delayed. Presumably this is as a result of issues detected during testing (which has been going on for some months). Better to iron out problems during the testing phase than after the relaunch.
We're looking forward to the relaunched site as some interesting new features are due to be added. Hopefully the new site won't be delayed too much.
