Strange forum issues?

Unread post by Thehandyman1957 » 2018-05-31, 18:49

I have noticed the last week or so some strange forum "glitches" going on. For instance,
I have made quite a few posts that have some how just disappeared. I would come back a hour or
so later or the next morning and my post was simply gone. I could go back to post again and "Lazarus: Form Recovery"
would recover the text I had wrote but I would have to re-download any pics I had on the post.

The newest issue was today. Where I had clearly made a post

But after coming back later it shows on my posts as not being there.

And even if you go to the main category page it shows the same.

I have tried refreshing the browser but it's the same.

On a side note, the forum seems to load noticeably slower this last week.
At first I thought it was the newest PM Alpha but it doesn't do it on other
web pages I visit. Just thought I would put this out there. :think:

I'd say last two weeks :?
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

I don't know about any other posts from you, but I certainly saw that one. I even immediately replied to it. No idea why it wouldn't show up for you... Huh

Yes, I know the topic is there. But it does not show my name as being the last one to post.

The previous posts just disappeared and I had to re-post them. :think:

The speed problem is known, I have an open ticket with the VPS provider about this, it's the negative effect of spectre patches that especially impact the PHP/MySQL combination.

Disappearing posts? No idea - we're not in the habit of deleting posts, and there are no topic log entries showing any deletions that I can see.
If you posted, and someone else made a post while you were writing it, you will be shown the new post instead of posting your reply, so you can make relevant edits before posting -- perhaps that extra step was skipped by you in that case?

Not sure, I will keep an eye on it when it happens again. :coffee:

Performance issue has been addressed. More changes will happen in the near future but we shouldn't have to hit the level of sluggishness we had for a while.
