Why would they need to take down a sub to push out web analytics?

Why would they need to take down a sub to upgrade their AMA approval process? It's just easier to do some kinds of maintenance (especially upgrades) by taking something offline.

"They" didn't take down a sub. They fired someone heavily involved with AMAs and the AMA mods closed the sub because they can't continue with their same way of doing things without her, and got blind-sided with this.

  1. Analytics has nothing to do with AMA approval.
  2. AMA approval has nothing to do with server code.
  3. Each subreddit doesn't get its own server, they would have to take down reddit as a whole. They've done it before, it replaces everything with a blue page with a big snoo and pixelated clouds moving in the background.

The admins didn't take down the sub, the mods did that by their own choice.

I know that now, I included that in my second reply to /u/SuperConductiveRabbi.
