Time for checkup?
« on: October 25, 2010, 06:55:03 pm »
I am wondering if the system for notifying members of new posts is working quite correctly. Is anyone else having difficulty with missed posts?

I'll look into it. Do you mean the link "Show new replies to your posts" or do you mean the email notification system?

Greetings,

Speaking of "time for checkup?"... has anyone else noticed Free Sangha running quite ssllloooowwwwwlllllyyy of late?

It feels like page refreshes are in the order of 10 seconds or so, when 1 second would be a more appropriate response time.

Metta,

Catmoon: are you using more than one computer to check FS? I find that I miss some posts, but I check it from 3 different computers.

I have noticed it being a bit slower. I've run some forum maintenance tasks now, but I don't know if that helped.

Was referring to "Show new replies" and "Show unread". Mind you I'm always popping in and out, maybe thats causing me to miss a few. But its mostly just suspicion. I find I can sometimes use both functions, they both show clear, but a look at the forum listings shows new posts.

No I use 1 machine exclusively.

Yes.  It is often so slow I cannot log on and usually have to attempt to sign in a few times -- sometimes this leads to a temporary lockout of my account (after three or four attempts the system is set to frustrate hacking attempts, which is good).  I can log on from home more easily than from my workplace.  I don't generally have problems with other websites, so I do think something is up.

Cheers,
heybai

Odd.  I know there were some issues at the beginning when we made the server switch (which is to be expected).  As far as the site itself running, it has seemed fine to me.  The only thing I do notice, as far as heybai's concern, is that when logging in from the home portal, it takes longer.  However, when logging in from the forum index as it used to be, it moves along just fine.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I have noticed slower response times, but I put it down to the new antiviral/web safety program I just installed. A lot of things can affect response times, like a neighbour who suddenly decides to take up downloading movies as a hobby.

Just now, when logging in from the portal, it was much faster.

Today I used the "show unread posts" and "show new replies", until there was nothing left to read. I then looked at the main forum page, and found it was still showing multiple unread post flags. I then followed the flags into the forums where I found three posts that the abovementioned functions had missed.

Perhaps I should point out how serious this is. If the new mail finding functions are missing 30-50% of the new posts, and it seems they are, it could very well spell the death of most threads simply because users are unaware that they are active. Having a sort of half-life on each thread in this way could kill off the board entirely.

For some unknown reason the main page seems to live a life of it's own. I often use the "recent topics" page, but topics I click there are not marked as read on the main page afterwards.I would recommend using "mark all messages as read" at the lower right of the main forum page until we find the reason.
