Hi, everyone.

I know I haven't posted an update in quite some time. Unfortunately, there's not much to report. Here's why:

When the boards started experiencing slowness -- pages taking forever to load, pages timing out and failing, etc. -- that became the top priority for the tech team. Shortly after they started investigating, it was brought to our attention that the slowness on the boards was slowing down the rest of the site as well. What started out as a message boards fix turned into a site-wide fix, with many more moving parts to take into account.

They're still working on these issues, including the login & posting failures. (The two issues are related, turns out.)

One small fix did go through though -- they raised the character limit for signatures from 255 to 1000. I bet many of you have seen signatures showing up again? 

I'm getting an update from the tech team about the login/posting bug this morning, and I'm meeting with the higher-ups (all of them) at iVillage on Wednesday. We need a final solution to all of the issues we're having -- everyone here agrees on this. We can't keep going the way we are, and we know it. Should be an interesting meeting!

Thanks!

Jess

...keep going!

Hi Theresa,

Have you tried to change your signature? Are you getting an error message?

Any new updates? Why can't we color our fonts like before?

Hello Jessica,
You say *one small fix* meaning the signatures.
Too bad not for all members.
So not really fixed then :(

Hi Rita,

The option to subscribe to the thread is in the options dropdown under the first post, if that's what you mean, but I'm not sure it's working right now.
