500 posts per page limit - breaking news!

So, over the Christmas break our lovely tech team did a lot of work on our server to improve response time. The server used to have an average response time of around 350ms (that’s actual processing time), our pages would then take approximately 4-5 seconds before being visible on the user’s browser and then would take another few seconds to finish loading other elements of the page in the background.

We have managed to reduce our server average response time to just under 200ms and the user will now typically see the page with 2-3 seconds, with the other elements loading in the background a few seconds afterwards.

At the same time we have also split the load onto multiple servers to handle peak traffic periods a lot better.

So, the good news is, the upshot of all this fiddling that we are confident that we can re-instate the 1000 messages per page feature without impacting site performance. We'll do that this week some time.

Fantastic. I have even complained about missing posts that I thought had been deleted but I think it was just that they weren't in the 500 I was viewing blush blush blush
Thank you!

Fantastic! Will we have to go into our accounts and change preferences back or will all previous 1000 accounts be restored automatically?

<I have also added what I thought was post number 501 only to find I was waaaaay behind, Kewcumber>

Thanks! Woohoo!

Wow, good work tech team! That's a huge reduction in response and page load time. And less of that 'site offline' message will be great too.
Hope the team will write about it on a geeky blog somewhere soon.

Hi BaronessBomburst, we're working on improving mobile currently so we'll give your issue some thought...

Thank you Justine, thank you Tech.

Can I second Mrs Cake's offer of [gin]? And a bowl of peanuts in case Tech hates Twiglets as much as I do?
