    Hi everyone,

    We are planning to do some major backend upgrades tomorrow evening Eastern Time. Hopefully the site won't be down for more than a few hours but we'll keep you posted if that becomes longer. We've tested the upgrade on a development site so it should be smooth and I'm hoping you'll all see noticeable speed improvements in terms of page loading time.

    Most likely somewhere around 10 pm EST...but could be later, not likely to be earlier.

    The upgrade is now complete, but we had to disable the post thanking feature for now until we can figure out how to restore this feature. Hopefully we will be able to get this going soon.

    Thank you Mark for all the work you did last night!

    Hopefully we can get the Thanks feature going again today everyone, but for now I am noticing a HUGE speed improvement for the site. Does anyone else see a difference, good or bad?

    I haven't measured anything, but it feels like this new one takes a little bit longer (some seconds) to load for me. Anyway, I'm not complaining about it - the site is still faster than some other websites I use often. Thank you for your work!

    Thank you for the feedback! What part of the world are you browsing from if I may ask? If it's far from the US (which is most of the world) then the site is probably loading through Cloudflare and might not change as much. Perhaps it will with some more time as I'm not sure what Cloudflare caches and doesn't cache. Still, any part of the site should load in much less than 2 seconds, ideally less than 1. If it's taking longer than that for anyone please let me know, along with your location and device type please.

    I think it takes something like 3 - 5 seconds to load. I live in northern Europe, browsing the site through wired connection (~10 Mb/s) on a desktop computer (running Xubuntu 16.04).

    It seems a bit snappier to me.

    After an upgrade to the latest version of our thanks product, that is now functioning again.
