[Optimization] This morning we released an update optimizing content creation and editing amongst other things
Hi everyone, we are back!
This morning we released a performance update that targets content creation areas like the SCP (Snap Creation Process) as well as the process of editing content (snaps / text posts) and or using the bookmarklet function in general. Doing the following things should be significantly faster for everyone:
- Using the bookmarklet - It used to take an average of 15-20 seconds to process a page and create a snap for editing, now we hope it takes 1/4th that even during peak hours!
- Adding or Editing Snap title & intro - There was an issue that caused saving the title take an unacceptable amount of time, we hope to be hovering at around 1-2 seconds for this now.
- Adding/Searching Tribes - Prior to the update we experienced delays in searching and adding tribes to snaps, at times it took a while for tribes to appear when being added, this should be fixed now as well.
- Adding/Editing Content Modules - All content modules should be working faster!
Even after extended sandbox testing we can never be 100% sure that we wont run into any performance issues, so if you notice something taking a longer then expected please get in touch with us by shooting off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can PM /u/drunkenninja directly to describe the problem.
There is however some bitter with the sweet in this update. The search function had to be disabled for a number of reasons as we work to overhaul our platform's backend for better performance and optimization. We should have the search functionality back in no time at all however, we expect it to be offline for no more than a few days, a week at most.
Thanks everyone, and happy snapping!
