Sure. Did you notice he responded to the comment?




(I'm not saying the message on the Facebook page was responsible for the renewal, it may well have already been in hand. just pointing out that it did happen, and icerat saw it.)
All 100% irrelevant. This is probably triggered the renewal:

Remember all of the other systems that exist did not work in previous years and there is nothing to suggest they would have worked this year. Even the post in Facebook was probably triggered by this thread as it was created just after this thread.

Ah, I didn't even know such a thing existed, I was presuming it was the JREF page.

It doesn't have a lot of traffic, but icerat has been known to post there about upcoming maintenance and outages.
