It's 6-8pm on a Wednesday night for me. That's terribly inconvenient here in NZ too!
Unfortunately, you'd probably find that more than 90% of Spark's users are American. Therefore they ARE going to operate at a convenience to the American users, as that's their site majority.
I just make a mental note not to bother trying to Spark on Wednesday evenings. Perhaps you'll also have to just skip Wednesday mornings on Spark and look forward to Thursday morning when you can then catch up on everything you need to do.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We do maintenance at the time of day when the site is the slowest, which happens to be when you're trying to use it.
It's the best time for me to enter up the lunch I have just prepared and the dinner I will be making. There's no time to do it in the evening and I'm getting behind. Sparkpeople is a social network so it's blocked at work.
I know there's a cost involved but it is possible to mirror systems and provide 24/7 service. Please give the UK a chance?
