My devforum notifications are coming in way too late

This has been happening to me throughout the entire day, where every notification comes in a lot later than their actual publication. As a result, I get chrome notification around 20 minutes after I have received and seen a message.

Edit: A lot longer than 20 minutes.

I seem to be having issues with the forum too, I will go back a page, the site will load for an indefinite amount of time, and then the “The site is on read-only mode” label is displayed.

I think it’s related to the read only mode stuff like GreatGuy mentioned. I get the same notifications sometimes when I return.

Yup, I get that too.

@Kiansjet I don’t think the site is on read-only mode, although it shows the banner. I get to reply, post, and give likes. Every now and then when I try to do something, it prevents me, and says that the site is on read-only mode, but then lets me do the action right after I close the popup.

@Nightgaladeld Is there an active issue with the devforum?

Devforum is being oddly slow lately, took me an hour to load the website yesterday.

I’ve noticed a few issues since the upgrade.

  1. Sometimes Profile Pictures just show up completely white for about 2 mins. (Moderate Appearance)
  2. Some Forum Posts take ages to load. (Rare) (2 - 5 Mins)
  3. General Browsing is just sluggish compared to before. (All the time)

Agreed agreed agreed.
I’m experiencing all of these.

I host a Discourse Install on a $10 Digital Ocean Droplet and my Discourse runs perfectly, I’m wondering what would be causing the forum to have loading issues.

The forums have been running very slow today

I’ve been experiencing this too, except it takes longer than an hour at times.

Does the web dev team manage DevForum hosting? What kind of VPS are you guys hosting DevForum off of?

Things appear to show up in Unread on time, just not our notif feeds.

Anyone else getting notifs for month old threads?

Discourse machine :b:roke

Intentional, that was me moving threads into Community Tutorials :slight_smile:

We’re going to look into those issues. Thanks for letting us know!

Adding on to this emails show up in spam. + Constant logging out has just started to happen for me in the past 3 hours.

Posts dates being out of order happens when a leader merges posts from one thread to another, so this is intentional.

I got logged out of my devforum account and my Roblox account, but my devforum account logged out first. I changed my password and it kept happening so I assume my account was not compromised, since I do have 2-Step verification. Also just loading this forum post took at least a minute to load.
