Stripping posts older than 5 years
« on: March 29, 2016, 01:43:16 PM »
As most of you are aware, we've had some strange outages on the past 3 Sundays - in an attempt to alleviate this issue, we will be backing up the database, and then using the forum functionality to delete all posts older than 5 years.  I have sincere doubt this will affect anyone, but the plan is to have this done by the end of day tomorrow (Wednesday).

Thanks!

Topics older than 5 years have been deleted and a bunch of stuff has been cleaned up.  Please let me know if you see issues.

Hey, John. I'm not sure if any others are having issues, but the forums are still running pretty slow for me. Sometimes I have to close my browser down and re-open it in order for pages to load.

I usually only have such an issue after I submit a post, but if I just refresh the forums the post I submitted is already there.

Yeah, we're seeing that on the staff boards as well.  John's got a few more plans in place to try to resolve the slowness this week.  As far as we can tell, the boards didn't go down last Sunday, though, so that's a step in the right direction!  We appreciate your patience on this - it's definitely frustrating for everyone.

This awful green site has been my best online friend and internet fort for years.  I hope you can find the root of the problem and work through it!  I believe in you team!
