Scheduled Maintenance: Login system improvements

UPDATE: We previously announced that this maintenance would occur on Thursday May 23rd, but have revised this to Thursday May 30th. Thank you for your understanding.

We will be performing maintenance start 7PM MST to 11:59PM MST on Thursday May 30th.
Earlier this year we launched a major improvement to MusicplayOnline logins and took the first steps towards a unified login system across all Musicplay products. We are now ready to launch the next part of the plan, which is adding the same login system to Musicplay Workshops.
