Upcoming downtimes/madness.
UPDATE: Ok, we're on the new backend, a few bugs are here, we'll be fixing them as the day proceeds.
Known issues:
Potentially Fixed:
 Random refreshes/logouts.
 Onlineness issues.
Fixed pending restart:
 Unexpected popups for new SmartScore titles that may or may not make sense.
 Still sporadic issues loading SmartScore subcategories on profiles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.27Hey folks, so I'm testing some crazy stuff that should help us improve performance longterm for OpenStudy. I'm hoping to start testing this with the live site on Friday or Saturday. That's the good news. However! It's a pretty significant rework of our backend architecture. The end result is, when we do start trying it out, we may have some time during which things will be up and down and generally somewhat unreliable. Obviously the plan is to minimize this time, but we've found in the past that with a site that has as many moving parts as OpenStudy, things can get pretty hairy, pretty fast with issues we didn't manage to think of or run into while testing. We'll be sure to throw up a usual broadcast alert with ample warning before we start doing this, but I wanted to go ahead and give you some upfront warning. The end result should be well worth it!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hey I read your "question" part but as for the replies I didn't read those. It seems like some of the buttons on the toolkit is not working. I guess it is called a toolkit. Like the ipcheck thingy. That button.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.27For the archives: Fixed:  Fan counts are off in many tooltips.  SmartScore subcategories are off in profiles, plus other issues with testimonials and other sections in profiles.  SmartScore in profile tooltips (when you click/hover on a user).  Occasional missing SmartScores for users with dashes in their usernames.  Profiles are having some loading issues (though they can be a tad slow).  Facebook invites a bit b0rked.  Update bumping isn't showing up in real time (it is going through, however).  Emails are going out, but have no content (only a subject).  Fan sections of profile not working.  Breakdowns of SmartScore categories in profile not working.  Browser lockups when viewing certain profiles in certain situations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's something else that should be looked at as well. Anytime I try to post a long reply using latex, google crashes the site, but not any other site. The error message pops up saying: "Aw Snap. Something went wrong while displaying page"

mattfeury

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hero, that could be us, for sure. I don't use latex as much as you and other power users do, so I will take yr word for it. However, I know that you and a lot of other users installed that Tex extension so that you can use latex in chat. I had a look at the source code for that, and I can imagine many scenarios where that is causing a performance impact on our site. Essentially, every three seconds, that extension scans the entire page document for potential Tex commands. On a site like OS, with new data coming in in realtime, a traversal of our entire page is going to be a pretty intense operation. Do this every three seconds and couple it with our builtin Mathjax renderer, and I'm not surprised that things go a bit wonky. I'm really just suggesting you try disabling that extension, as it could be a culprit for issues. It could still be a problem on our end, but, unless you think Tex in chat is really necessary, you may be better served trying to disable that extension on our site. Thanks for the feedback! Let us know how it goes :).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, I could, but that doesn't solve the general problem. It would be a nice feature if you could opt out of receiving notifications for a thread without deleting all of the comments you've made.

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.27Yes, but the general problem has been addressed multiple times, and is completely off topic in this thread. You brought up a specific issue with this thread, myininaya addressed it. We've already talked about thread subscribe/unsubscribe. Please move on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The problem with the Latex and "aw snap" occurred way before I downloaded that tex extension. As far as I'm concerned, the two are completely unrelated.

shadowfiend

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.27I'm afraid we'll have no idea if you're right or not unless you disable/uninstall the tex extension and continue to see it happen, however, as there were issues that caused the aw snap a while ago that have since been fixed on our/Chrome's end.
