    Re: New Forum Update

    I agree that the problems don't seem to be getting any better. I suffered another crash today when I tried to post a new thread on the Visual C++ forum and (once again) it was several minutes before I could access CodeGuru again.

    This really sucks Brad. CodeGuru is so unreliable now as to be near unusable. We've all been patient but the problems have been going on for far too long.

    Addendum...

    I've just made 3 attempts to edit my previous post (above) but each attempt failed.

    I just wanted to add that the only obvious improvement is that we can now find old (i.e. historical) posts when searching. Nothing else has gotten even remotely better AFAICT.

    I've only used CG a couple of times in the past 5 days but despite my problems 6 days ago, the past 5 days do seem to have been better.

    Re: New Forum Update

    Folks how to I view members? In the old forum, there was a page where you could view members name and sort by date joined, total posts, etc.

    What's the equivalent in the new forum?

    Arjay -

    The member list is currently disabled. As a Mod, you have other options, but the public member list is currently disabled until we resolve all of the speed issues.

    Brad!

    Update: We've added more servers, so let's see if that helps performance and such.

    If you can fix the software, throw more hardware at it. Isn't that what they say?

    Has the members lists been reenabled?

    Such as what? Advanced search for posts from "Igor Vartanov" still finds my posts not earlier than June 21st. I don't think the extra servers could help with this. I believe my message history has become lost for ever. This is not funny anymore. I cannot express the degree of my disappointment. Now really, does anybody care how many times this was reported since June 21st? It's October coming, come on guys...
    Best regards,
    Igor

    Re: New Forum Update

    Igor - I can't remember exactly what's needed but there's a way to make each forum search earlier than June 21st. However, searching is still pretty slow, even with the new servers. The rest of the site isn't too bad though. I think that searching back to the earliest available date should be the norm (like it used to be). Very few users would actually want to exclude those early posts from their searches IMHO.

    Still way too slow. In fact, yesterday was the slowest it's ever been. Most times it would just timeout.

    Just noticed a glitch in the private message preview (using IE8):

    Speed feels ok now, and I didn't hit any database errors recently.

    Has the forum search been fixed?

    Re: New Forum Update

    The forum was very slow again about ten minutes ago and I got a DB error as well. Now the speed seems to be normal again.
