AST "Health check" (your 2c requested)

Post by Xen » Sun May 07, 2017 12:00 am

Greetings!

I need a situation update of sorts as to the site performance (downtime, slow load times, other bugs or weird things happening) and community health (i.e. mostly happy or mostly unhappy due to...X, Y, Z) over the last 12 months. Preferably in point form and as honest as you like.

Health issues have kept me out of the hobby for a while now and that is set to continue. I try to have a quick look around and do what I can, but I pretty much left all of that in Scotchyns hands, with me being a "in case of emergency break glass" background guy.

I know the site has issues, that became a problem early last year and were never really fixed. I hope folks aren't experiencing the type of major downtime or load time issues we had back then. Judging by the stats, it is probably still happening though.

That's one reason why I need your 2c (in particular, from the regular posters), so I can refocus and go from there.

There was the picture issue recently, but mostly works.

Yes, other than the pictures issue a month or so. Back, no problems at all!

I prefer this message board over all others. I can't give any dot points of issues, but I can tell you why I like it here so much.

1. I like how the different scales have their own threads.

2. I love that you can post pics on the messages directly.

3. People here tend to stay on topic regarding the actual hobby (some message boards, you have to wade through lots of off topic stuff to actually find a built model!).

4. It's friendly.

5. Old posts don't disappear after a month or two.

I could probably go on.

I have reported a serious security issue weeks ago but then it was ignored for a long time so I just let it go. Until a couple days ago it was still there but I just checked and it seems to be finally fixed (that is a very good thing).

;)
Thanks,

Yan.

I haven't noticed any issues but I have seen stuff reported by folks. I was aware of the picture issue. I'm enjoying the forum.

Xen I wish you the best for your health issues.

Seems to be working well for me.

I haven't posted anything for quite some time (longer for pictures) so I haven't noticed any issues.
