Thanks to Liz for the new UI design and Callisto for the new badge idea.
we have a home page? *looks confused* Maybe you spend too much time on your profile page, its granted you access to a pretty exclusive club
HiI will be migrating the database to a new server, during which time the site will be down. I'll need a couple of hours, I'll leave the mobile site up so you can still read.Cheers, gav
I don't know if other people would find this useful, but how about a text box on the "story submission" template for the writer to add a short note to the Mods about it? Once or twice I've taken a story offline to make corrections, and it would have been nice when I resubmitted it to be able to add a little note like "Story taken offline to correct punctuation" or whatever, so the Mods knew why they were having to verify it again. I suppose it could be open to abuse by people saying things like "Put this online quickly or else", but hopefully not! Doneski!
It would be cool if we could have a counter for how many times an audio story has been listened to, much like the view count for non audio stories. Doneski!
I've thought about this a time or two and thought I'd finally throw it out here. I think we should have a number to show how many under the "following us". Kind of like the friends one, but for followers. It would be nice to know in total, without trying to count them all. http://www.lushstories.com/poppet/following Doneski!
Thanks everyone for your well wishes. I sometimes wonder where the 12 years have gone, its flown by. Then I look around and see our 5 kids, then I remember :)
Think its about time I chimed in on the server/performance issues. At present we have 3 servers, a web, database and media server. All three handle requests for Lush Stories , Stories Space and Historias Lush . On top of this we have traffic coming in from our mobile site and android app (which is probably comparable to our full sites traffic).Like a four lane motorway (freeway?) when everything is running normally traffic runs smoothly. Every so often you end up behind a Skoda so the traffic backs up behind. In Lush terms a Skoda would be a slow running query. Over the past few weeks my code changes have been targetting these rouge queries (hopefully you have noticed some improvement). There is still work to do in this area.I believe we can squeeze more performance from our current infrastructure. Adding more web/db servers gets complicated. I would rather defer this, one for future gav to worry about :)Please be patient, this is an ongoing task of mine.
