    The site seems to be having a lot of issues the last 3, maybe 4 days. Non-responsive/offline many times. We all OK? Do we need a quick fundraising campaign? Some of us with no life are wearing our refresh clicker out.

    There was a notice up about testing. Maybe they're still testing or they implemented something that is causing issues?

    Still undergoing testing.
    Expect the issues to continue through today.

    I don’t want to jinx us but with the most recent tinkering it seems to have stabilized.

    Do they use AWS and do they use auto-scaling? Just curious?

    I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.

    Apologies for the site issues and sporadic downtime.

    Our growth outpaced our server's abilities so we upgraded our plan and did some upgrades to the back end. This was unplanned so we had some issues to plow through. Over the last few days we made some great progress in the speed department, search and caching.
    We're still tweaking settings as we fine tune the site so hopefully we'll be set for a while ;)

    Thanks for your continued support and contributions, hosting a site of this size comes with significant financial costs.

    If you enjoy our site and would to contribute to keep it going you can donate here:

    Cheers

    Haha. I could still guess though that this site is not hosted on AWS

    AWS is not a holy grail. It all depends on the config and the app you run.

    Trev just upgraded the server from an original Raspberry Pi to a Raspberry Pi 3.

    I think we're over the hump now, things are stable again. Please let me know if you run into any issues and I'll look into it.

    Thanks for all the work, still a hiccup or two tonight as @JWardell notes. I had a post that never seemed to post and still has the Post Button, it ended up posting 3 times. Cleaned a couple of them up.
