What's up with DIC

Posted 09 November 2013 - 03:41 AM

The performance and loading at DIC is.. terrible. It works for a while but then drops out and I have to attempt to load a page numerous times.

I just lost a fairly detailed post, aaargghh!! I still try to copy my posts but, sod's law, forgot to with this longer post. We SHOULD NOT HAVE TO copy our posts, nor to reload a page several times.

Why does DIC have such difficulty in keeping the site up and running? Particularly for a programming site it is, well, embarrassing.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I suspect the new server team isn't doing regular reboots and maintenance, as the old one did. I believe skyhawk133 has asked them multiple times to do regular maintenance. Regardless, I have emailed him regarding this ongoing issue. The moderation team is equally frustrated with these issues, and I am doing my best to make sure they are addressed.

Thank you mac. It is good to know that at least the issue isn't being ignored.

I don't know. I'm hoping it was that the server needed to be rebooted and optimized, which should hopefully take care of some of the immediate issues like more recent site timeouts. I am hoping that we can get a more permanent fix in place, like regular reboots and optimizations, not just when the site starts glitching up.
