Folksy image cache rebuilding on CloudFront

Hi — we’ve moved the image server cache over to CloudFront, today, which should mean that images load faster and cache better and more reliably, going forwards.

Unfortunately, this cache needs to build before it all works perfectly, and this is currently ongoing. We’ve deployed lots of extra image processing servers to help speed this up, and are monitoring the process.

Naturally, we’ll keep you updated as to progress here.

In the meantime, thanks for bearing with us whilst the cache rebuilds.

Thanks,

   Doug.

Relisting and image upload problems

We accidentally pushed some changes to the live platform yesterday, which triggered a known bug which causes problems with item creation.

Some customers may have experienced problems uploading images for new item listings (or relisting existing items) due to a problem with thumbnailing of images on one of the machines in folksy server cluster.  This issue should now have been resolved.

We’ve scheduled some maintenance on Friday to modify some things on the Folksy cluster to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
