Scheduled Maintenance

We’ll be performing some updates to the folksy service tonight after midnight. There may be a brief service disruption as the changes are rolled out to the Folksy servers.

Folksy running slow

We’ve experienced a couple of periods of slow running over the last 30 minutes or so. This appears to be due to increased load to the site. To mitigate the problem we’ve disabled the forums temporarily and we’ll enable them again later on tonight when the load on the site has reduced. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

Folksy Forum Changes

We’ll be making some configuration changes to the forums today.  Customers shouldn’t experience any problems whilst these are ongoing, but please let us know if you experience any slowdown or problems accessing the forums today.

Tag search disabled

We’ve temporarily disabled the tag search views on Folksy as the service is receiving high traffic levels to these views which were causing interruptions to service. We’ll be re-enabling them later on, when the traffic has reduced.  We are continuing to deploy improvements to the service to manage the high traffic levels we are currently experiencing.

Update : We also temporarily disabled the ability to list new items for a period of about 15 minutes, affected customers will have received a message to this effect.  Both listing and tag search limitations have now been removed.

Slow response times

We’ve experienced a couple of periods over the last few days where the site has experienced slow response times.  We’ll be making some changes tomorrow to hopefully resolve this problem.  Apologies to those of you who have been affected by this.
