It's quite hard to see when the Atlas site is known to be only part-functional and hence whether I should raise a report in the Forum (which is itself a pain to post on because it doesn't share sign-in with the main Atlas site) on being unable to access something. Could we have a System Status page, preferably hosted on a different server*, for NBN Atlas? The ideal would be a traffic-light graphic: red, yellow and green for each component. A link to this page could be in the menu under ABOUT, perhaps.
Currently I use the appearance (or rather non-appearance) of the number of records in the BDS dataset as a clue. This is to the right at page https://registry.nbnatlas.org/public/show/dr731 but I don't know whether it is really diagnostic!
