Just recently,when logging out there is a message telling the user that the
site is temporarily down and will be back in ten minutes with a link to this
fictitious character's site.I thought the admins might like to know.

The admins put it there.

But it shouldn't come up just because you log out, so far as I know.

It doesn't come up when I log out, using Safari.

The message was an old one from back when TFL was moving servers. The message has been fixed. It's a 50x error page, triggered either when there's some (unusual) server error, or when you request a lot of php pages in a short amount of time. If that page weren't there, you'd get a pure text, and more cryptic, 50x error message instead.

The "fictitious character's site" happens to be youtube. It's an embedded youtube video.

Okay, that's odd. Apparently logging out triggers a 50x error. Not sure why. <cave>Keep testing.</cave>

Oh. I see why. Will be fixed shortly.
