Our Community Is Growing!
We are upgrading the forums tomorrow to run on their own dedicated server container. This should help with uptime and performance and afford us a few more niceties in the coming months as well. This will be a zero downtime upgrade but will results in about 20-30 minutes of read only.
This will happen tomorrow (08.28.2015) night at 9pm PST.
@tgauchatwhat are you going to do with your new found free time!?
Dagnabit! You were either reading my mind or I’m very predictable.
A break is a good thing… I’ll try not to substitute with binge eating or something…
Note, I am a bit delayed, expecting to start the move in about 2 hours
During the move
- There will be very brief period where site is in read only
- Images will be broken for a short time
Except for that we should be rocking … will update you here 5 minutes before we are going to readonly (and banner this) and again once all the drama is over!
So @sam_saffron did I get the date/time wrong? Is it happening very soon or tomorrow?
Very very soon I am just about to flick site to readonly
We are moved now @Ben give me a few minutes to sort out images
Testing new image uploads
looks good using CDN and new scheme
avatars are good, CDN refreshing
old image links corrected
I do recommend moving to a banner topic instead cause it is less jarring for regulars see: https://meta.discourse.org/t/new-banner-topic-pin-type/16458
Also I recommend the change we have at https://community.imgur.com/ clicking on home page takes you to categories view … but once you are in a topic and hit home it takes you to latest, instead of back to /categories.
@arpit_jalan is looking at figuring out why the home icon is absent unless you scroll down a topic.
That is totally unrelated to the move, ping me here if anything is amiss
Woo-hoo! Search on iPad is working again. Thanks!
I spoke too soon. Search is still broken. Boo-hoo…
I thought that was just me! Thanks for noticing!
