      In the last couple of days It takes me 3 min. to open askwoody.com and 2+ min. to open a topic.
      It is close to unusable.:-(

      As you probably saw Woody post a day or two ago, the merge is underway, and that is the cause of the slow site. It may be a few days before this process finishes and the indexing bots have done their bit, so there will not be a quick resolution.

      Again, we ask your patience… thanks.

      We’ve hit a few minor problems, and the site’s been slow, but so far everything seems to be on track.

        Yep me too, I gathered it was due to the change, basically unusable at present, will give it 24 hrs or so and see if it improves.

          Those of us scurrying around behind the scenes feel your pain, believe me.

          Here’s a little math quiz I gave my son:

          • It take about 3 seconds to import a Topic
          • We have somewhere close to 180,000 Topics

          When will the Topic import finish?

          And remember when the Topics are done we have close to a million Replies yet to come.

      Will it be over before Easter?

      cheers, Paul

        HA!

        I sure hope the Replies go faster… I’d get outta the car and push, but I’m not sure how to do that.

        (BTW, the site got much faster about two hours ago. Not sure why that happened, but it seems to be much better right now.)

        Or 6.25 days for the topics and almost 35 days for the replies.

        So, it won’t be over before Easter, but right now, at least, things are moving reasonably fast.

      Been away most of the day and I was pleasantly surprised at how much faster it is. I see that the topics are still coming in as well….

      Don’t believe it’s 3 minutes but the site does appear to be a bit slow.   Hopefully soon all will be well.   🙂
