Site Maintenance and Downtime Tonight, 6 pm PT

Posted by Patrick Brown on February 29, 2012
We are preparing for some major maintenance to the site today, around 6 p.m. Pacific time. This is work that will eventually make the site much faster and much more efficient, but it will require some down time. We anticipate about 15-30 minutes of downtime, starting around 6 p.m. Pacific time. We will be on hand working to resolve any issues that arise after we re-enable the site, but please be aware that further outages may occur as we release updates to fix unanticipated problems. After the site is back, please let us know if you encounter any problems using the site.

During this process, we will be posting status updates on Twitter and remaining as responsive as possible.

The updates will pave the way for some significant performance improvements which have become a little overdue. So there may be a little rough patch at first, but it should lead to serious improvements in your Goodreads experience. Thanks for your patience.

You can do that already! See help topic here.

Rebecca Ashkenazy could you make posts automatically post? like a chatroom? Because people role play and it would make it easier. Thanks

If you're reading a book and want pages instead of percentages, you can click the "%" and it will toggle back to pages. Let me know if that's not working.

hayden Can you add a way to make a primary edition of a book? How do you change that?


message 7: by rivka, Goodreads employee (new)

rivka The primary edition is the one shelved by the most users.


message 8: by hayden (new)

hayden It just bugs me how on the site, some series are foreign editions of the book. For the longest time, Spell Bound was the German version of the book and the whole series was screwed up.

Yes, that would be amazing if you could do that. It would eliminate a lot of confusions when you post the same time as someone else does, and they conflict.

Jessica I'm still having a lot of trouble with the site loading VERY slowly, and then not even loading all the way... but only from my home computer, or perhaps only at night? When I tried from work this morning, it went and I was finally able to post a review. Is this a known thing? How do I fix it?

Moloch Group bookshelves have a bug, when editing the name of a shelf, the book count doubles and the total number is wrong, though that doesn't affect the books, that remain the same. Could this be fixed?

Example, http://www.goodreads.com/group/booksh...

The shelf "classici del giallo Mondadori" has 51 books, but the count says 102

Thanks for doing the system update, GR really needed it! The constant crashing was getting old.

Julie I am a co-moderator of a new group and I tried to send a mass message to the whole group yesterday and it said the message was sent to the entire group but no one received the message. Can someone help me with this?
