Esteemed members and readers of Ricochet,
I'm happy to announce we've been working on much-needed changes to our infrastructure at Ricochet, and we hope to migrate to new servers in the next week or two.
There may be some temporary disruptions in the service, but please be patient; these are typical during such a big transition.
After the transition, you should experience:
- A faster site overall
- Much faster posting times (less than 10 seconds to be sure; but in our tests, as little as 2 seconds). Currently it takes more than 30 seconds just to post a comment, due to complex caching issues in the system.
- Fewer (hopefully zero) "transaction failed" errors. I know I'm not the only one who has been seeing these recently.
- More stability; and other improvements.
Also, once we finish this transition, we should be able to focus more on adding new features to the site and improving it in other ways. The problems listed above have been taking up a lot of our time and we are eager to put them behind us.
Thank you as always for being members and readers of Ricochet!
