I looked at it and knew exactly the source of the problem. ;)

Hi everyone,

The upgrade went smoothly and unfortunately it wasn't until hours later that we experienced some performance issues directly related to the upgrade. Rest assured, we are working to iron out the performance issues ASAP. It should already be quite a bit better than last night.

Thank you all for your patience!

I hope this is the right thread to post.

Since the update, when I sent a PM it shows up in Sent Items but it doesn't in Confirmed/Unconfirmed messages. Schrodinger's PM?

Also, if I go Confirmed/Unconfirmed messages page I can't open any of the old messages (of course the new ones do not exist). How can I be sure that a PM has been sent?

Unfortunately, there was emergency maintenance (as some of you may have noticed) and the forums were down for a little over an hour.

It turns out that somewhere along the way I broke MySQL replication. All is well again, but you may have an issue where the page constantly refreshes. If it's happening to you, go back to the homepage and logout. In about an hour it'll all be fine again. In the meantime you can still browse the forums.

Everything should be good by sunrise...which isn't too far off by the looks of it :|

MUCH, MUCH better this morning, thanks!

(And noticeably faster than pre-upgrade, too!)

I had a new message last night and read and tried to delete it last night but it wouldn't delete, and keep bringing Unread message alerts to every page I visited. Now the message is gone from my inbox, but it still says "(Unread 1)" even still. All the messages in my PM's are read... will this bug fix?

I'm happy to hear that! Our server statistics are much more level and sane now. I'll be keeping an eye on it all day, reacting to any issues that arise as soon as possible.

There's a new permission that says how many videos you're allowed to post. It used to be tied into the # of images. I'll let oranr and Kaitlyn battle it out for what the correct # is for that limit.

Sorry! Search was disabled a moment ago because our indexes weren't updating properly. I had to bring it down and start from scratch. Should be all good now.

Please fix the time issues on the server. Every time you take the servers down, it resets
the board time to GMT, and the only fix for that is to change it in the profile. You have to reset the current location on the server to EST, and enable DST settings.

Thank you!
