Hey everyone,

You’ve probably noticed the site going up and down and being pretty slow over the past few weeks. I feel your pain, and I really appreciate you being patient. We’re trying! The push to docker last week caused some issues and the developer had to roll things back.

We’re regrouping right now and are planning on trying again later this week or early next, but before we do I’ve brought in another developer with deeper server experience to make sure we’re going about things in the right way. Measure twice, cut once. I’m also hoping this new developer can do a deeper dive into making things faster because oof it’s been bad lately.

They’re named MD and JM, by the way. We worked together about 8 years ago and were a sort of “dream team” at the company we were all working at, knocking out some really complex projects. It’s a real pleasure to be working with them again, and I’m happy PB has enabled our happy reunion.

In other news
I’ll be making a post in the next few weeks about a new surprise feature for PB I’ve been digging into this past month (remember my mystery call for surveys a while back?). I think you’ll all really love it, and I’m excited to work with the community on what it will ultimately look like. I’ve also got all of the usual feature requests on my radar, I promise, but I want to give the developers something really fun to work on after all of this dreary server work.

And who doesn’t love surprises?

Funny, the site's been fine for me. I appreciate all your hard work, and welcome to MD and JM! Smooches to Mochi from Nougat! ❤

Ha! Wrong punctuation at the end of that sentence. It was meant with sincerity -- you rock!

NorthernSeeker August 28, 2018

I noticed it was slower and I thought that you were probably still working on a lot of things. Thanks for all the work.

J🌞DI August 28, 2018

I too, noticed it was slower but figured it was due to the upgrades. Thanks, though, for everything you're doing to make us faster, better, bigger, bionic! ;) ;)

Thanks for keeping us in the loop and will look forward to the surprise!

Firebabe August 29, 2018

Oh thank god. I thought my company firewall was finally starting to notice that I'm on here waaaaaay too much during work, and was trying to outfox me when I was logging on. It got very War Games for a little while there, but I'm glad to hear that it wasn't on my end. LOL.

Just a tad slow for me, but I've been a bad proseboxer and haven't been writing or reading much.

Is Mochi doing doggy yoga in that picture?!?

There used to be advertisements for Menards on here? Can you tell us wat happened to them please?

Take care, and please enjoy the Santa Monica pier for a midwesterner.

Any idea when the site's going to be back up to speed?

Camdengirl September 06, 2018

How’s it going? Been slllllooooooooooow for me on the site - and getting worse.

hot-lips Camdengirl ⋅ September 07, 2018

Me too, I thought it was just me and either my work/home internet connection. lol I've also had keyboard/typing lag when I'm writing on the site from my phone. Not sure if that's related, or just my phone?
