Did anyone notice anything peculiar before everything went to the land down-under in a handbasket?
yes I couldn't connect for a long time and again when it did connect, it said new features upcoming. I restarted my computer and then it came
thanks - by the way the site is fantastic - really well put together and very intuitive UI. congrats to your team.
It was all us, nothing to do with your computer :)
(Also, no offense to those who actually live in Australia, I meant the land below our feet ;) )
anyway it comes now. I thought it was a problem with the browser.
the last thing I did was to post a question which spun around waiting for a while before I got a popup saying site was unavailable.
k good, cuz the server just went "the server can not be contacted at this time" and then it just put me out i tried to get back on a lot but it was down and then i saw this cute pic saying OWL BE BAK!
Yeah, sorry about that :( We should have noticed faster, but our monitoring service seems to have simultaneously decided that a server that wasn't working was totally not a big deal..
o and i noticed the site being real slow
yes I tried to answer a question. when I clicked on post it said sorry, google chrome could not connect to the server at openstudy.
i use google chrome too and the same exact thing popped at me
is there any chance you guys could put up a page somewhere that displayed the service history of the site? e.g. when it went down, for how long, main causes, etc? might even be worth showing some sort of graph that would indicate how stable it was.
oo good idea
I don't know how big your team is, but it might also be worth putting up a beta page whenever new features are being added to allow a select group to try it out before releasing it out to the wild. I'd be more than happy to be part of the beta testing program.
r the leader boards gonna b back?
asnaseer—someday, perhaps. At the moment the site isn't part of a critical infrastructure, so we're focusing on other things. We actually do have a core group of users that tries features before they go out into the wild; I'll see what we can do about getting you on it. We have a pretty small team (1 full-time developer, though that's about to change, and only three other full-timers, with a few part-time interns). The leaderboards may well be back in the future, but I'm not sure when exactly.
Yeah, I hear the new developer guy is pretty awesome.
so what r u shadow? like i bet u work for openstudy but what job do u have in it
I am our Chief Software Engineer.

I do. Until about two minutes ago they were both sitting a max of 10 feet from me :p

Just an office in a building.
