is it just me or is the site really slow for anyone else?
seebs has noticed it, there is a Mysterious Something causing Slowness for an Unknown Amount Of Time
I'm assuming the downtime was related to the slowdown issue? Even if it wasn't, my loads speeds are MUCH faster now, thank you based Seebs.
The site being down was an ISP issue, so... I'm actually not sure.
Slowdown could have been a combo between that and indexing, or just that, or something else entirely, but maybe.
Not intentionally related. I asked ISP about the slowdowns, they said "oh, that's because of some ongoing maintenance". Then the site went down, and I couldn't even log in to the admin console thing for the hosting, and I found an outage notice:
Investigating - Due to a power outage at the San Jose location, we are currently experiencing disruptions in the operation of our compute nodes. Our engineers are on site to recover systems and monitor the situation. We will do everything required to mitigate the impact on our customers’ virtual servers and networks.
All support activities were conducted under the direct supervision of [ISP]’s operations staff.
Due to the ongoing power line issues, our compute nodes are experiencing disruptions and the sustained virtual machines are stopped.
Anyway, I checked recently and the console was up, so I logged in, and asked it to reset the machine, and here we are. It may still be having problems, but in the mean time, I have fast network.
It's possible that, for instance, the performance will go back down when everyone else's machines come back up. :P
To clarify: The slowdown was network, not database. I got atrocious performance on just copying plain files, too, while this was happening.
Icon! Thanks, seebs!
is there any way to prevent ignored threads from showing up as "latest" in a subforum on the home page?
Hey can we get a 'mood' rating? Sometimes I want to rate a post to show that 'yeah me too' without using witnessed or agree because both feel wrong in the situation. So, Mood.
Possible alternative because similar emotions: same hat?
This is also good
vis a vis not being able to ignore the mods: I think I remember that I used to be able to do that because I had a previous mod on ignore for the sake of my mental health at one point? is there some software switch that got flipped there or?
Not that I'm aware of. I've tried to hack it in, but it never actually worked properly, and the software as such explicitly does not allow it, and it's not a setting.
Wonder if I just had an ignore in place before modding happened and it carried over? Or my brain is just fritzing on me I guess
It looks like some posts by user on post moderation don't ping people with notifications enabled for that thread. I didn't notice Athol had posted to the selfies thread until manually checking it, and just confirmed that I didn't get any alert for that thread in a while.
Ah, yeah, that one had other stuff going on. Normally people get notifications whenever something gets approved as if it is a new post that has just gone up.
What's up with my profile saying I was last seen Sep 14, 2017? Is this a sub-account problem? I've had appear online enabled for a few days now.
links in posts on dark theme are a little hard to see :( they're sort of dark grey
Yes, they are pretty dark
Is there a way to search through your posts to see if a particular person's liked any of them?
As I post this I realize how much of a creepy question it's going to look like out of context, but simultaneously don't want to give the context. That probably just makes it look more creepy! Hooray!
Probably the closest thing to that would be to hit "ratings received" and ctrl+f for a name, but I think it's limited to 20 per page
