The site was down for an unacceptable amount of time.
This outage had particularly bad timing - while I was in the hospital after being hit by a car. That may or may not have contributed to the latency. If anything is broken, I'm not sure why currently. I believe there's an issue with how the database is caching and I've reached out to Jdeg about it.
I've been very hands off on Politics.ie for years - and it seems there are major issues with the site. I want to figure out where we stand, how broken things are and how you guys feel about it (I already know the answer to the second half of that statement).
I've also created a discord chat to assure I can be pinged easily: https://discord.gg/cbF998A
To start - what I've noticed:
The search bar doesn't appear to be working
Posts are often duplicated
Half the time 'quote user' doesn't work
Like functionality has vanished
As I've said - I don't spend enough time here, I'll be refocusing my efforts now to fix what I can and hopefully rectify some previous negligence. I can't always promise to be here but I'd like you to let me know your thoughts, guys.
