We did an upgrade of Booksie servers last Friday. Everything went well and the site is now faster. Despite testing prior to the upgrade, two bugs have emerged: 1) many members are unable to leave or respond to comments 2) email alerts are not being sent.

We did an upgrade of Booksie servers last Friday. Everything went well and the site is now faster. Despite testing prior to the upgrade, two bugs have emerged: 1) many members are unable to leave or respond to comments 2) email alerts are not being sent.

In addition, there seem to be a few problems publishing content. Users may receive an error alert when trying to publish some content to the site.

We are working on these problems and expect to have them fixed sometime on Monday.

...... I also seem to be having trouble with my Gifts. I can't read the ones that are marked "private," despite the fact that I am logged in.

Thanks.

I appreciate being kept informed, there is nothing worse than not knowing what is going on :)

Happy that you are working them out as I am unable to post and it has sometimes taken me over an hour to get one chapter to upload other times it won't work at all. My fans are getting testy as this is the final few chapters ;o) I would appreciate if you could let me know as soon as it is resolved.

I'm glad it is getting fixed, many people were left thinking I had not read their updates because I was unable to leave a comment to confirm I had. Thanks for the info!

Thanks, many of my comments on my work were getting deleted. And I thought my eyes were playing with me. :)

Alright.... At least it might be fixed today :) Booksie gets boring when you don't know if people are appreaciating your work... Besides that how are we supposed to improve if no one can state there opinion?

Is the upgrade anything to do with why content published three years ago and having fewer read counts than more recently published work is listed first in the READ listings?

This seems to happen quite a bit on Booksie. How, exactly, does the algorithm for the listings work? How can content from 2007 or 2008 come at the top of a listing labelled "Last 7 days"?

Thanks for the heads up and yes I can see the difference and finally it's running faster.

I wish the site was easier to navigate. I couldn't even find my own postings until I learned to go to My Account. It makes me wonder how people actually find what's been written. But then, I'm an older person and may not understand how it's done. Of the three places where I post work, I get the fewest reads, by far, on this one.
