Thank you for your patience

JoeUser may be a neat site but it hasn't been IMO a very reliable site. Down times, slow speeds, flakey behavior, bugs, etc.  On the one hand, it's free, so how can we complain? But on the other hand, it's still been down, slow, flakey, and buggy and that just because you're free doesn't mean that you're above criticism.

But in the past few days, we've finally started the full upgrade process on our entire server farm.  Shortly after GalCiv II shipped, we did some emergency updates that were designed to keep sites marginally running.  This week, we began the full stage upgrade. 

Hopefully, even though we're only half-way done, you can tell that the site is much faster. Less flakey. More reliable.  Traffic has already started increasing dramatically as a result. More readers for your blogs, more freedom to surf the site, etc.

So for all of you who have been through the rough times as well as the good times, thanks for sticking it through.

I wish I could have been there!  I miss all the fun!

Well, still a few bugs.

It may be slow, it may have a few bugs, but it is still the most userfreindly, and in general a great community, thanks Brad. I doubt if too many would mind if we had to pay a small fee to help keep it going if it was necessary.

I don't mind the 'down' times too much.  It does a person good to take a break for a while.

Having said that, I'm REALLY happy it's up and running again.  I may not mind taking breaks every so often (and I certainly don't mind taking a break for GalCivII, it's sale is part of the reason JU is possible for free) but go without JU forever?  I can't do it.  I break out in a cold sweat just thinking about it.  I think I'm addicted....

I did forget my manners!  Thank you Brad. And thank you Zergimmi for reminding me of my manners!

Note, in case it's not a known issue: editing of replies is currently not working.


Hmm, make that not working sometimes. It did work here, as an edit of a reply to a forum post, but wasn't working on a comment on an article posting.

I have an account, but haven't been able to set up my blog. I've been e-mailing for help for quite a few day. I hope putting a comment here will do something. I'm losing my patience. I really don't like LJ but what's a blogger to do?

Oh man, lucky comment number 13.... I might not ever have a blog here
