    Yep, very slow and I'm getting "Bad Gateway" messages that drop out every second screen load I try.

  • Glad it's not just me, I thought work was finally implementing restrictions.

  • There are some locking issues with database queries. We've implemented some extra locking to prevent multiple replies under the same parent comment getting the same sorting value. We have been running that code for a few months now without any issue, but there's a strange racing issue with locking since this afternoon, which I still haven't figured out the cause.

    I have commented out the locking code and will observe whether that fixes the issue.

      Database deadlocks always suck. Having to deal with one on a Saturday must be even worse.

    • Nice work. seems much smoother in last 10 mins

  • Same here, thought it was just me. Glad to know it isn't on my side.
