We’ve been making small incremental changes to our article database design in order to improve speed and reduce lag.
On Friday, in the previous 24 hour period, we had 6,418,429 MySQL database queries of which ZERO have failed :-). This is a good thing.
When we have bad or sloppy code or the server can’t keep up, we get error messages in the database (db for short).
This is all useless trivia, but it’s part of the making of an article marketing super site.
I am aware that some processes are still taking 4-20+ seconds per process, so please be patient and only click on SUBMIT once when you are creating a new account, sending in a new article, updating your profile or adding an alternate author name. We are planning on addressing these speed issues over time so that everything is returned in a second or less with 5 seconds on a bad day.
