Known Issues Update 12/2

  • The site may occasionally be slow to respond or have trouble connecting as we tune servers and databases, or you may receive Gateway Timeout errors.

  • Comment notification emails may be delayed due to database load.

  • Inbound email (post-by-email and comment-by-email) may be delayed for a bit while your outgoing mail server catches up with the switch.

  • Email sent to your username@dreamwidth.org address may be more likely to be marked as spam, due to our mail server changing its IP address.

  • The site search database may be missing entries and comments and will catch up over the next few days, as database load allows. Entries and comments posted since the site came back up will be added to the index as they're posted.

  • Logging into other sites using your Dreamwidth OpenID is working again! Yay!

  • Loading embedded content over secure connections should be fixed!

  • There is a known problem with trying to rearrange elements on the Beta Update page because a script element isn't loading properly. Update: This should be fixed now!

Let us know if you see anything else odd with the site that isn't listed here!

That may be another symptom of the same problem that is causing issues on the beta update page. We are investigating a fix for that! Or, if it's not a consistent failure, it might be the that the related JavaScript sometimes takes too long to load and times out. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Oh gosh, no inconvenience! This site is great, and great things take work like this. Just wanted to bring it up in case it pointed to an issue you didn't yet know about. Thanks for all you folks do!
