Hello everyone 🙂.
I just have a quick message for those of you who experienced downtimes throughout the day today. We've been having some minor problems in the admin interface, which have been caused by an overloaded database server. The patterns section was sometimes really slow to work with, and our moderators did let me know about it, so I was doing my best to fix it today. I've optimised some parts of the code that were extensively using the database, ran some maintenance tasks, and also updated our database server. And because of that, I had to took the whole website down for a couple of minutes.
I was only able to reproduce it one time today, so it seems like there's no easy way for me to check if the issue is completely gone, but I'm really hoping it won't happen ever again 🙂. In case it will, I'm sure our moderators will let me know again, so that I can take an even closer look at it 🙂.
I'm really sorry for any inconvenience it might have caused to you 🙁, and am hoping you will have a great day despite of it!
