first of all, cool idea!
but ehm.. this might be a stupid question but what does the "Avg. Ping"in the table mean?  


Average ping. (time it take for players' computers to interact with the sever)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ping  

Correct. In this case of the server status script, it's the average amount of time it takes my server to contact the game servers. If there are no issues, they tend to hover around 80ms (0.08 seconds).

This is not a measure of what YOUR ping will be, or if you can even connect to the servers reliably (similar to the node issue we had a few weeks ago). There are also times when my server cannot contact the game servers, and the game servers are actually online (this happens, sometimes), so don't take this to be an absolute measure of server availability. It's just a useful tool to help mitigate spam during maintenance.

Can you post the IPs of the servers so we can check our won ping?  

You can check your ping to the server farm by pinging aeriagames.com (174.142.60.93)

What do we do if it says "Timeout" on the login servers and "Maintenance" on the rest?

If ANY of the servers say "Timeout", that means the server is either offline, or is unreachable (Online, but you can't connect to it for whatever reason).

Note: If the login servers ever timeout (they are offline or unreachable), the game servers will say "Maintenance". This is because game servers are online before login servers during maintenance, and making the information available causes hysteria and rumours.

If the servers say "Timeout", and the Server Status Page says the servers are online, this means that the servers are online, but you can't connect to them. In that case, please follow the directions in this thread.

November Update:
Jay and I have recently gone through the trouble of registering http://www.gameserverstatus.com/ and building a completely new website, so the server status scripts have been moved there.
