Infrastructure work

Over the last week, we've implemented some new technologies (a technology called "redis" & a refinement of how we cache certain components of our site). This should improve performance by roughly 50%. Please let us know, however, if your experience is different, or if there are any issues.

Comments

Just today I've noticed a marked increase in performance.
Thank you for your work, Andrew, always appreciated.

most of us are not aware about the nitty gritty of work you and your team keeps doing for continual improvements.

Extremely thankful and grateful,

One thing I did notice, don't know if anyone else has noticed, when you post a poem in the stream, it used to show up straight away, I noticed now that you have to refresh it. only a very minor thing, not sure how this thing caches stuff.

Thanks.

Chris.

Great work you do here
I was just on the june contest and it's not easy to participate.
I think clicking on the link would make it more assessable to more poets if they could leave comments and or poems there

Thank you very much for your continued monitoring of Neopoet and improving it.
Loved has a good point about bringing back the number of visits an individual poem has, it helps the poet monitor her/his works.
We now have to pay our attention to the number of comments that are received and why some of our members are not criticizing others works but still expect their works to be paid attention.
Thank you once again for your continued support,
Yours as always Ian.T.

Hi, following on from Lovedly's suggestion, I think a poem read counter would be a great addition. I did notice that somewhere there was a number of times poem read tag, but as the counter was always at 0, I assumed it was in test mode - I think it did say something about beta test mode too.
Cheers and thank you for all the work you do for the site. Jx

Remember we are a workshop site.
Don't forget to offer critique on poems you read.

4 ur support
but andrews has always ignored
ask Stan

Put the old Neopoet site back with all the poems and poets, and I'll have something to be happy about. So will new *Neopoets*.

Maybe you can even resurrect the *glory days* ?

or are you still harping back to the material that got lost in the big crash all those years ago?

attacking members with your slangy not funny schtick
getting old...and U wonder where the members go

sad....

My comment to Loved "irrelevant" was perhaps a bit terse or was it using the phrase "harping back" to Anna? My question was genuine.
I hardly see it as "attacking members with ...slangy not funny schtick" or likely to drive Loved or Anna away.

Your comment concerned me because I have been consciously making my critique less caustic and more friendly for some time now. Have I said something that's bothered you recently?

I might have driven people away with my caustic attacks but I have sincerely tried to help with constructive feedback and run workshops and been active in helping Neopoet run.
I am hurt and disappointed.

incorrect again!
and not a Neopoet member..aha...u would like to be able to push the delete button
on who and whom U see in assumption for this site.....I merely write poetry the hack
that I am....but poets held a true spot in history and the social expressionism of the
past and still do today. And they didnt get along that well either...but here is a fair
enough place where there is no need to belittle but bolster. Ur failing too take into
consideration that my academic schooling was not well in high. I am not the high
faluting word knowledgable chappy that one may ere consider. I write with a style
and with intuition...the same I used on the street and travels....school of knocks so
to speak!! tut tut! tis time to be on my way! a Good day too U sir!

I have made a conscious decision to be more supporting and less attacking, for some time now..

I fought it well...my culture exists...we are a people too people
like a lapsed Catholic I tend to the return to the altars of
pure humility in my own way...be they pagan or the doctrines
of Gods Laws! the distractions of the evil in the world are
many...why there is so much malice in a time of great truths
and revelations...where there is the potent taste for wisdom
there equates the force of ignorance.

Keep things in perspective, everyone contributes in their own way, as much or as little time as they can afford, surely? Virtual hands across the water and all that - think everyone is doing a grand job, and I'm sure all will be well in the morning guys, when the pixels have settled :)

All the best to everyone here.

In the beginning it was bloody Black dark,
Then someone put the light on.
There eventually humons evolved from the slime of the oceans, or where ever.
Damn silly event really there were many types evolving at the same time.
Here today we are the survivors of many millions of years.
Unique in our ability to think or are we..
So now we have arrived at a point, where we need to be better than the one standing next to us.
Maybe we need a directive to live by.
There are some good ones in many books for all you that are well read it says usually "Treat everyone as you would be treated" wars would end and we would strive to enhance the Earth to its latent beauty.
Shall we just step back and think before we taunt or express other than proper comments on each others works.
Teach you we should!!!
Yours Ian.T

Thank you for all you do and the absence of a comment is as much as the written word.
Let us now just get on with all the other poets and use our energy in advising them where to better their works,
