Hi WoV'ers,

as you already noticed by the painstakingly slow forums in the past several weeks, we have had multiple issues that got tackled one at a time.

1. DDoS isssue was obviously out of our hands and as the old host was the target and not us. This lasted for about a week + and during this time we were preparing to migrate to amazon servers.

2. Once We moved over to Amazon, the site's speed got back to normal. But that did not last for too long as we encountered another issue related to our SSL certificate that was not setup properly, which then started causing the serious lag. It took us few days to actually track down this problem and additional few days to fix it.

3. The phase 3 is the current phase, where we are working on making further speed improvements and better optimization of the site in order to additionally reduce page response time ( this mostly pertains to the main forum page which was the biggest problem ). Also, since some of the information on WoV is being fed by WoO which was causing lag at times, we will be looking into finding more permanent solution for this too.

As you can tell the site is much quicker now, and pretty much back in the state it was in prior all this. But I stress again we are working on making further improvements.

thanks for your understanding and patience
Zuga

... (this mostly pertains to the main forum page which was the biggest problem ) ...

For the record, I rarely ever look at that page. I (and I presume many members) have a bookmark for https://wizardofvegas.com/recent/ and use that as an entry point.

When I experienced delays, it was usually on that page, and usually if I hadn't been on the site for a few hours. Also note that I never log off.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

If you do work on that page (/recent/), please don't destroy its functionality. It is the main entry point that I also use for the forum.
