Coming on the heels of the Quantum Computing thread, I wanted to start a new topic to address some of the issues we've been experiencing as we fine tune and tweak the settings to give us the best possible performance. Because the inherent technology behind what we're doing is off-server caching, in order to provide minor offline capabilities as well as faster global performance, any settings we adjust may take a day or three to take *actual* affect on your local computer systems and mobile devices. 

 

The problems most seem to be experiencing are general issues with assets not loading, missing images, javascript or other ui elements not behaving appropriately, and/or general server/content unavailability.

 

I would like to ensure everyone there is nothing to be 'paranoid' about

 

We are unfortunately working in a live environment, and while it's exciting to see the changes taking place slowly, and right before your eyes, the other side to that awesome coin is you're all effectively "beta" testers since there will be errors, omissions, downtime, and general freakiness while we work through the new tech.

 

We appreciate your posting and letting us know there are issues, and we are paying attention and addressing them as quickly as possible; it's just that nothing we can do here is an instant fix and likely any changes we can make will take days to propagate.

 

 

The tl;dr version: We recognize that this new addition, like any other, comes with its own bumps. We see the effects of this. We are doing everything we can to mitigate and tweak the system ongoing, however, any changes we make are likely *days* from change -> end user due to the caching technology.

 

 

We are working on things, and we appreciate your patience and support while we get all this new tech online. :meditate:

Every day is a new adventure.  I just keep hitting Reload until it gets close to right.  Then I hope for the best.

Not freaking too badly here.  Just sayin' that when any page comes up weird or incomplete, hitting Reload seems to be the best bet to fix it at that time.  I will admit that I have been hitting Reload on many page changes.  I was only hoping that my report might help others having issues.

Unfortunately, sometimes the changes you have to implement are on a live system, so you do what you do best and hope for the best. So annoying that sometimes the changes cannot be immediate, as at least that way you can view it right away and find out what needs to be tweaked to get it working properly sooner.

 

So long as the actual content isn't going anywhere I don't see a big deal in waiting a while to see if things get ironed out. :biggrin:

I had to log out and back in to see the poll. 

 

While I voted for "Still having loading issues," menus come up that I have closed and the login window comes in two forms on alternate logins.  Also, when I click to see a Like, sometimes it goes into another page and the unchecked Likes counter doesn't zero.

PC working decent, still issues with UI.

Tablet, Nexus 7 lollipop keeps locking up whenever I come to this site.

Works ok with other sites
