It seems that every time there is a glitch with the 3D Warehouse or Extension Warehouse, there appear multiple reports on this forum. Usually, all but the first report has a reply saying “this has already been reported” - and I end up spending (wasting) a lot of time because I choose to look at ALL new postings.
Might there be a way for the forum to have a header on the entry page (forums.sketchup.com) that SketchUp personnel can post current status of various services including the 3DWH, EW, and perhaps apps.sketchup.com?
With this, the first SketchUp employee to see a forum post reporting a problem can put something like “Login problems reported for <service>”.
Then, when the appropriate people have been notified, they could then change it to: <Short description of problem> with is confirmed, we’re working on it" – update (when known) with estimated time of service restoration.
Finally, when service restored, remove any mention of the problem service.
I don’t know if this is possible, nor what would need to be done administratively at SketchUp/Trimble to get it working - with the proper people having authority, but I like the concept!
