Hello all, 

I want to first apologize for the site extreme lag. This was part of a lot of issues <that we are doing our best to resolve> and troubleshoot. We've updated to the most current of the forum software (another release was just let out since my last week update). 

@Mystery Man Did some updates to the back-end last night and I am doing some updates to the front-end (theme); in the meantime only the black theme will show up as the others need a major update. We know that this theme isn't ideal for everyone and will try to have a light theme running ASAP.

@Child of Light, thank you for the update. This is undoubtedly a challenging task to tackle, so we applaud you and @Mystery Man.  Also, you are appreciated for working on a lighter-themed background option. The black background with white font is hard to read for some of us with middle-aged eyes. Also, things that are cut & pasted onto a black background appear black, as well. The two quotes you have in your signature bar are a good example. I can't even see what they say. 

Also, would deleting all the "dead" accounts (ones that have been dormant for 5+ years) free up some space? Just a thought....

It's not a space issue that is causing the lag (we would just increase storage if that was the issue). But rather complicated how the server is connecting to the software and how it's releasing its load. Dormant accounts aren't causing any issues.

Oh, okay. I see....

At first I liked the black background, but for reasons @Chawsee mentioned, it got to where I don’t like it either.   It’s hard to read in certain lighting, though I hate to think of myself as middle age.   😏   Also, a recent thread question was next to impossible to make out due to it being black on black.   I liked the blue background we had recently.   Can we get that back?

I'm doing my best to be patient, but this is appalling. Tonight it's at least twice as bad as it was a month ago. 

The errors are in the Db and each crash we are troubleshooting the errors. There has been a few patches made. But for it to fully fix the logger is trying to find the root cause. We appreciate everyone’s patients as we are working through this (ps light theme should be up tomorrow and I’m not a dark theme fan).

We’re in the process of updating that version. That theme had to be re-written by scratch.

They are working on the site and doing their best to get things straight. Have some patience everyone!!!

Everyone HAS been patient, but patience wears thin when a problem never seems to get fixed.  This has been this way for way too long.

We don’t make any profit off SN (or break even). It’s purely a site we want to run to help people speak about their kinks. The co-admin and I both are essential workers during COVID and have both lost people in our Iives in the past year. It's not been easy. I've kept people updated on various solutions we've worked with our host the past 8 months on (and software company). It has not been an easy fix. We've been scaling back the site's features to see if a bug is within a plug in and purposely inducing the site to crash for troubleshooting reasons.

Sorry you’ve lost people.  That’s rough.  And thanks for being essential workers.   My comment to @shygurl was because she made it sound like we’re all impatient and being difficult.  I think we’ve been very patient.  This problem has persisted in varying degrees for months now, and we’ve all put up with it.  I really never heard anyone say much about it until the site was almost inoperable 3/4 of the time.  So I’m sharing the issue from OUR perspective.
