Site Maintenance 6/12/2014

Hi Everyone! I wanted to give everyone a heads up that we are going to be doing some site maintenance in about 90 minutes from now ( around 11AM EDT ). During this time, the site may not respond or may be moving a little slower than normal. We will be making some modifications to the configuration settings and it will require us to restart the server a number of times. During these restarts things may seem to freeze or not respond. Rest assured it will be a temporary issue but I am hoping this will alleviate the login issue that many people have been experiencing.

Please, let us know if you run into any other issues about things not working or not responding properly. Please respond via comment or the "Contact Us" form above if you are having any issues.

As always, I want to thank everyone for making this community what it is and what is can be.

You will need an account to comment - feel free to register or login.

Thanks for the heads up! I have experienced a slowness earlier on and a few times the captcha wouldn't load.

Thanks for the pre-warning. It will give me a chance to have a little break :)

The only issues I have been having is that some of the colors in the submit page do not work and another member has not been able to get some of the other features to work except in the preview page.

Glad to know that you care to inform us all prior to the site having any sort of issues. Knowing ahead of time I can plan a work around appropriately. Thanks Ashley, and love the site so far. Awesome job your team has done!

Heads up and great communication, that's a good thing. Will take note of this and hope everything goes smoothly.

SandraLynn wrote on June 12, 2014, 10:13 AM

Good thing, that. Just means I can fold some laundry and do other things that I've been neglecting now that I'm horribly addicting to you all. ;) Do what you must do, so that we may do what we can do. We are in this together :)

RE: site issues so far: other than my own figuring things out, the only thing that is actively annoying me (and I mean that sincerely but nicely, please note) is that comments upon posts repeat. I figure you are aware but maybe not so there it is.

Cheers and happy updating :)

It's so nice to have this kind of information. Thank you.

MaeLou wrote on June 12, 2014, 12:22 PM

Is this on any post in particular? We can look into it, but no one else has mentioned this as an issue.

MyBubblyBoy wrote on June 12, 2014, 1:54 PM

I've seen some of my comments appear twice. I've notice the times it does is when the site goes a little slower and I click the button twice. I think it's just impatience that makes them appear twice. Haha

I noticed this today actually and if it's the same thing, I think I know why. One of my posts was showing that it had been shared 6 times on FB. Which was astounding, considering it was a PP centric post. Till I realized that my FB peeps were liking the post there (I used one of my wedding photos, edited) probably because if the pic. The numbers added up. They, more than likely (and God forgive 'em, they don't read every word I write after all these years), were simply liking because of the pic. Which was showing up here as shares; which weren't adding up with views!

I wouldn't expect coins for that :) And I wasn't getting them. No issue! :)

I'm having this issue. None of my social shares are counting for anything. I have an active network and always get 20-50 views from a Twitter share and 10-20 from FaceBook, but I'm only seeing internal traffic being counted.

dracoselene wrote on June 12, 2014, 8:49 PM

Same here, I'm only seeing views counted from within.

oh ok since I am not good in configuring time difference since it is the 13th here in the Philippines and 11am I will make posts later this afternoon to be sure.

I was not online when this happened I think. Thank you Ms. Ashley for responding to issues quickly. :)

It is wonderful receiving warnings such as these. At least we know what is going on and do not have to panic. Keep up the great work, ashley !
