Unable to access forums during maintenance

Every time the maint starts, I am logged into the forums..then it logs me out and wont let me back in.

During this extended period I see post after post and thread after thread from others, yet every time I try and log in it wont let me or freezes at a partial load login screen.

I have checked and this happens with both browsers.

To get in before the people with "duh it's maintenance" the forums come back up and other people are able to post threads and talk yet I am always unable to. I can read new threads but am unable to log in and reply.

Suggestions?

Sometimes it appears they are up but when you look the replies are actually hours old. It is like they are frozen. I have been tricked by this before and wondered what was going on. Once Maint is over it all works again. Is this happening even after the forums have come out of Maint mode?

Mirasol. I saw new threads that were not there ten minutes before maintenance and appeared maybe less than ten minutes after the forums came back. And replies to them, some of them discussing maintenance issues.

New threads.

It depends on how long each individual's log in cookie is kept, but ultimately it will likely log you out at some point during maintainence, and not be able to log you back in while battle.net account management is also down.

Kozzae: thank you, that's the second time you've provided a coherent and helpful reply. That makes perfect sense.
