Fluther's now on new servers! Do you see any new bugs?

Asked by ben (8568points) September 2nd, 2016

Andrew worked hard to move and fix a ton of stuff so we can be on great servers for the long term. Yay!

There are probably some bugs and issues because there were a ton of moving parts… let us know and we’ll work on fixing them.

No. Site is super fast. Thanks Ben.

Jeruba's avatar

How nice to see you, @ben. Many thanks to you and Andrew for continuing to maintain the site even though you’ve moved on. It’s still pretty important to me.

I’ll keep my eyes open. Do you want bug reports filed in this thread? or where?

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

Their is no longer a formatted preview below the text box where I am typing right now.

UPDATE! NEVER MIND! The preview is working great. I use a script blocker and had to allow a new Cloudfront address.

The site is really fast. Nice!

I had a bunch of questions show up in Questions for You that were old… most of them by one specific user (can I say who?). I left a comment about this on another Meta question (the one about the ... question), because several of them had ... in the title or details. But having gone through all of them, I’m not so sure that’s what the problem was.

Well, that was sort of an incoherent ramble, and I’m not sure it’s even related to the server change. Thanks for keeping tabs on us anyway!

Coloma's avatar

I’ve just logged on for the first time since yesterday and things are fast and just breezin’ along. Thanks for the injection of turbo power.

Mariah's avatar

So so so fast. Thanks Andrew and Ben.

imrainmaker's avatar

Saw two cool dudes while Fluther was in maintenance mode ( Which probably are you and Andrew).. Nothing to report so far otherwise.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@andrew thanks too.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

Thanks for keeping the site up and running ! All the wizards !

tinyfaery's avatar

Hi @ben and @andrew !!!

Fluther is still awesome.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

@ben Mahalo! I will keep my eyes open for difficulties and report here.

ucme's avatar

Got a shit ton of federated questions stretching back over 2yrs in my Q4U, all from mods, looked almost like “test” questions as only other mods responded, nowt serious but rather odd.

imrainmaker's avatar

I could see @andrew crafting response..but not seeing it till now..is that a bug?

Jeruba's avatar

Flag for profile spammers is missing.

chyna's avatar

Thanks @ben and @Andrew. So glad you guys are still keeping this site up and running.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Thanks, guys!

Strauss's avatar

@I’ll add my thanks. It really means a lot that @ben and @andrew (collectively known as Bendrew) update the site every now and again.

SavoirFaire's avatar

So far, so good!

@all It is likely that all of the things added by Phi and Mariah will have to be re-added separately. This includes the chat box and flagging profiles. Sorry for the inconvenience! In the meantime, feel free to use the Contact Form or the PM system as a roundabout way of flagging users. Thanks!

Call_Me_Jay's avatar

Is this running on a cloud service like Amazon or Azure?

cookieman's avatar

Looks good thus far. Thanks a heap @ben and fist-bump to @Andrew.

Wicked nice to see you sir.

BellaB's avatar

Wow! hadn’t been back since last night. Things are super-zippy now.

Excellent and Thank You!

GQ and GA all round :)

ibstubro's avatar

I’m pleased to see that Ben and Andrew are still cohorts. That they both still give a spit about Fluther. That they both think that Fluther, as it existsfluthers… is again or still viable.

I’m tickled spitless that the legendary duo of Ben and Andrew is reunited in and on Fluther, and willing to put forth time, money, and energy.

Bite the kids and kiss the biscuits! I think we have a winner here!!

Mimishu1995's avatar

Thank you @ben for at least not forgetting the site. So far I only notice the chatroom missing. Everything is running really speedy.

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@Mimishu1995 Put in this in your browser http://www.fluther.com/chat/1/ to get chat.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@RedDeerGuy1 I meant the chatroom we usually saw on the side has gone. The mods are working on it though.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@Mimishu1995 The chat box will probably take some time to get back online. There’s a lot of anti-spam stuff that Phi and Mariah added that is going to take priority.

@all Speaking of spam, we’re likely to see a bit more than usual in the next few days while we get all of this stuff back in place. All flagging efforts are much appreciated. And don’t worry about over-flagging. Multiple flags are not a problem!

We may now return to praising @ben and @andrew‘s awesome work. And for anyone who hasn’t noticed, @andrew changed his avatar!

Cruiser's avatar

Just for you seems to be not working. When I came back last week pretty much every new question popped up in Just for you and now bubkes.

Brian1946's avatar

Thanks for the update, @Savvy!

Aethelwine's avatar

Mobile is working well. No complaints here.

Now go enjoy your weekend.

imrainmaker's avatar

Feeling great interacting with founder of Fluther through this thread.. Kudos to you!!

Cruiser's avatar

When I click on Activity for you…I remember that when you clicked it, it took you to the latest addition to the thread….now I am just taken to the OP and have to scroll down to find the latest and greatest. Life is too short to have to blow precious time scrolling…please don’t use Labor day holiday time off as an excuse to not fix this! ~

janbb's avatar

Didn’t get a point accrual for logging in today. Wondering if lurve is working right.

Hey, thanks so much for working on things @ben and @andrew. I really appreciate it!!

Cruiser's avatar

@janbb I got mine 4 hours ago…fwiw I had to go into my lurve list to find it.

janbb's avatar

@Cruiser But my total hasn’t gone up and that is the only way it does, these days. :-P

Cruiser's avatar

@janbb I feel your pain! :D Give you a GA anyway!

janbb's avatar

Le sigh. I’ll never get to 50,000 at this rate.

Mariah's avatar

Yeah possible lurve problems, I noticed a answer of mine showed up as having gotten GA’d twice in the Lurve feed but only has a 1 by it in the discussion thread.

BellaB's avatar

When I was in http://www.fluther.com/194189/how-did-you-find-fluther/ , it id’d the same thread as the older thread at the bottom of the page.

It’s happening in this thread as well – the older thread here is… fluther’s now on new servers do you see any new bugs

Mimishu1995's avatar

A new member joined and received no lurve for joining. It may be trivial but it can mean something wrong is going on behind it.

By the way I’m still waiting for the profile’s flag button…

Mariah's avatar

@BellaB Aw shit. That was something I’d fixed but forgot to send to @andrew to make sure it ended up in the new code. Thanks for the catch, I can probably fix that tomorrow.

janbb's avatar

Still no lurve accrual from daily sign-in or potentially GAs – if from newbies.

janbb's avatar

And no Q’s for U.

dappled_leaves's avatar

I have a Q for U (yikes, is that this textspeak I keep hearing about?) today.

Lurve from GAs is working, but not from visiting 2 days in a row.

janbb's avatar

U mean they lurve u but not me? K!

Coloma's avatar

Fluther wants me to be their neighbor today. haha

Jeruba's avatar

@ben or other fluthergod or assistant god: Could you start a separate thread that is just for bug reports, or direct us otherwise? I’m afraid the action items may get lost in the friendly chat.

Seconding the report on the lack of lurve point for daily sign-in.

Tropical_Willie's avatar

@Jeruba I’m getting lurve for daily sign-in. Are you on a tablet or phone?

Jeruba's avatar

No, laptop.

janbb's avatar

Not on my desktop either.

andrew's avatar

@janbb @Jeruba I’ll look into the lurve stuff on monday

janbb's avatar

@andrew Some lurve to you then!

ibstubro's avatar

Desktop. Win7 Firefox.

No lurve.
No Q 4 U.
Not scrolling to the bottom of the page when I open an “Activity” question.

ibstubro's avatar

Note, the auto-scroll failure might only be on pre-update questions?

filmfann's avatar

New q for u still not updating.
But the new servers smell wonderful!

janbb's avatar

@filmfann They still have that new server smell.

Blondesjon's avatar

Only when I’m jonesin’.

dxs's avatar

For the past few days, I thought Fluther was gone/broken because I usually type in just “Fluther.com” (no www). Now, I must type in the www. Is that a bug? I’m relieved either way. Thank you!

ibstubro's avatar

Didn’t +used+ to underline?
I swear, PnotP taught me that.

andrew's avatar

@Jeruba @janbb I can’t reproduce the bug, unfortunately. I just received lurve myself for logging in. Have you tried logging out?

Jeruba's avatar

@andrew, no, I haven’t. I never used to have to log out. (I’m always afraid I’ll forget my password.) The +1 would occur automatically at midnight, and that’s how it’s worked for the years that I’ve been around. That hasn’t happened for days now.

Lack of flag profile spammers is more troubling, though.

Brian1946's avatar

I just checked my lurve logs, and I’ve been getting +1 for everyday going back to just before the transfer. I never logged out, but I had to log back in after the transfer, which seems normal to me.

janbb's avatar

SAme for me as @Jeruba. I never log out but it just came at midnight.

ibstubro's avatar

I just logged out and in, and my lurve has not moved since the move to new servers. 225. Spot me 1500, would ya, @andrew? And @janbb 1,200?

janbb's avatar

Yeah – I logged out and in and nothing was added.

filmfann's avatar

I just got a federated question!

janbb's avatar

@filmfann I did too a couple of days ago.

Coloma's avatar

^ What is a federated question, what does it mean?

janbb's avatar

@Coloma It was a section they had for a while where they were pioneering Fluther fielding questions from other sites.

Coloma's avatar

Aaah, I see.

Jeruba's avatar

My lurve log shows +1 for signing in, but no change to the total. I noticed because I just passed an even 44000 a few days ago, and the only increments since then have been three for 5 points each. No daily points.

Coloma's avatar

@Jeruba Well I am trying my best to raise you out of the slump. haha

dappled_leaves's avatar

Yeah, I haven’t been looking for +1s, only noting that my lurve total has not increased. Perhaps that’s why a difference is being reported between users.

imrainmaker's avatar

@janbb – looks like you’re depending too much on daily visit lurve increase for reaching 50k mark? You should get there easily with GAs though..unless I’m missing something in lurve counting mechanism.

janbb's avatar

@imrainmaker I was being humorous but the fact is that after everyone has given you 100 lurve points, they are maxed out on you. The ycan still give you GAs but your lurve count doesn’t go up from them. So if you’ve been here a while it is hard for your lurve to go up much.

Mariah's avatar

Maybe now that Fluther is a smaller community than it used to be I will talk to bendrew about fiddling with the lurve algorithm.

janbb's avatar

@Mariah I’ve been thinking for a while that maybe they could up the lurve max some.

imrainmaker's avatar

@janbb – ohh ok..got it.. there’s one GA for ya..) it will surely increase your count as I don’t think I have maxed out on you..)

janbb's avatar

Looks like you have butthanks for the effort.

janbb's avatar

Edit: I didn’t really mean “butthanks” but it might be a great new word.

BellaB's avatar

I was trying to figure out what the gift of butthanks might be… and then I wondered if anyone else heard it as butt hanks.

All in all – it deserves a GA !

dappled_leaves's avatar

It is intriguing, to be sure.

janbb's avatar

@dappled_leaves And butthanks to you too!

Stinley's avatar

the RSS feed isn’t working. I don’t use it very often so just noticed it today. The last question on it is the one previous to this one

andrew's avatar

@Stinley Thank you! This is on our list.

Jeruba's avatar

Possibly related bug: I see a post from a new user,
http://www.fluther.com/users/Trucktruck/
who shows zero points. Everyone automatically receives 1 point for joining, right? I’ve never seen anyone at zero before.

BellaB's avatar

Similarly,

lhttp://www.fluther.com/users/FireBlaze/ was at 0 when they posted their question earlier

now they’re at 3 after posting a question, an answer and getting a great question award

the lurve definitely seems messed up

(if I add the lurve I see on the side to what I had when I logged out last night, my lurve score should be different as well)

Mariah's avatar

Are we sure you get an automatic 1 lurve on sign up? I feel like I’ve seen 0 lurve on people all the time but now I’m wondering if I’m just remembering wrong.

Jeruba's avatar

@Mariah, well, I was sure. It should be easy enough to create a new account and see, right? I’m pretty certain it says right up front that you’ve been awarded +1 for signing up. All our various +1s don’t seem to be registering. If you can read the set of possible lurve-related messages that are in the code, you should be able to see if it says that or not. So if it does, then the question is why it’s not being added.

Mariah's avatar

Oh yeah I can check the code, later. I am camping now. No computer, only phone.

janbb's avatar

I haven’t had any lurve accrual in days and days. whinge, whinge, whinge…....

chyna's avatar

^I haven’t either.

Coloma's avatar

Trapped in lurve limbo land. The Groundhog day of Fluther, where every days lurve, remains exactly the same, to infinity and beyond. haha

ibstubro's avatar

Whine, whine, whine…I have not gotten a single lurve since the changeover.
By gosh, the new server is certainly not working it for tips!

Now I need cheese and roses.

ucme's avatar

Most of the time I have no idea what my random pointless numbers are, wouldn’t have a clue if they moved or by how much or how often, They just sit there being numbers, that’s all.

ibstubro's avatar

I know because I leave Fluther up on my computer 24/7 and just refresh the page when I come back on. I’m looking right at the lurve count as it doesn’t change.
And yes, I logged out and in since the we started going through “the change”.

chyna's avatar

Please fix the lurve.

janbb's avatar

Or give us each 200 bonus lurve points when it is fixed. :-)

We know you are trying and really appreciate it @Mariah et al!

ibstubro's avatar

I’m by no means bent about the lurve thing. Not even annoyed, truth told. I’m just enjoying the Days of Rosé Whine and Cheeses.

I want 1,774 free lurve as restitution, @janbb. And the reinstatement of the daily lurve point, of course. So I can earn the floor upgrade.
By showing up one more day.

Jeruba's avatar

It isn’t whining to answer a request for bug reports.

Strauss's avatar

It’s not cheesy either.

@Jeruba there seems to be a lot of “un-tilde’d” good-natured sarcasm among some of the jellies on this thread.

But seriously, @Mariah et al, you guys have all been doing a great job!

Response moderated (Obscene)
ibstubro's avatar

OMG! I gained my first 3 lurve since the great reawakening!
Praise Cheeses! @Yetanotheruser!

andrew's avatar

I’m hoping to get the lurve issue for consecutive logins resolved by the end of the week.

Lurve is still correctly working for GA and GQ, as far as I’ve seen.

janbb's avatar

Thanks @andrew ! I did get some lurve for GAs the other day.

dappled_leaves's avatar

@ibstubro I’m guessing that your 3 lurve were probably from a GQ, not from logging in daily.

Coloma's avatar

I hope you all get an obscene amount of lurve. haha

BellaB's avatar

I did! I’m up about 100 lurve from last night <blinks> which is a big jump when you’re pretty freshly hatched.

Brian1946's avatar

I lurve obscenity.

If anyone knows what the obscene comment was, PLEASE send me a PM! :-p

Coloma's avatar

—^ Haha…hence my use of the word “obscene” above.

Setanta's avatar

Where’s the champagne breakfast, the mimosas and the eggs benedict?

Now that would be an upgrade!

Mimishu1995's avatar

Still waiting for the flag button…

ibstubro's avatar

That comes when you move into the mansion, @10,000 lurve.
Now get busy answering questions!
@BellaB has over double your lurve.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@ibstubro How about a lurve party while it still lasts?

ibstubro's avatar

We need new slime, @Mimishu1995. Almost everybody is maxed out on almost everybody.

Mimishu1995's avatar

Try me. I’ve just come.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@janbb how about you?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

The only bugs I see are the ones buzzing by me.

Kardamom's avatar

For the last 3 days, I’ve only been able to get onto Fluther, through Googling it. I can’t just type in Fluther, or www.fluther.com in my search engine (which is Google, on Chrome).

It is 10:05 p.m. PST, 9/13/2/16.

Thanks for any advice.

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Kardamom I tried typing it on my Chrome exactly the way you did and it worked fine. Maybe try cleaning your cookies and see what happens.

longgone's avatar

@Kardamom Just to be completely sure: Are you typing in ”www.fluther.com”? Because that not working would be new.

So far, we were only aware of “fluther.com” not getting you to the lagoon right now. Ben and Andrew are working on that.

ibstubro's avatar

O!
M!
G!

+1points for visiting two days in a row!

It’s baaaaaack!

T!
M!
I!
@Mimishu1995 Unless @janbb and I just have our minds in the gutter.

chyna's avatar

^ not for me.

janbb's avatar

I still have not gotten and plus one lurve either. I usually just stay logged in and it accrues; I just tried logging in and back out and it didn’t go up either.

Mimishu1995's avatar

More lurve party!

filmfann's avatar

I haven’t been getting daily lurve, but I am getting GA lurve.

Kardamom's avatar

My problem seems to have fixed itself.

janbb's avatar

I got a prize for showing up today!

andrew's avatar

Good, think I fixed the problem.

Mimishu1995's avatar

Now can we move on to some of Phi’s features?

andrew's avatar

@Mimishu1995 I’m still waiting for him to respond, I’ve sent him a few message over the last weeks.
