    The unsubscribe option in settings isn't working for me.
    Settings > General Settings > Default Subscription Mode: Do not subscribe.

    ...but I'm still getting those emails.

    You should be able to unsubscribe in settings - I'll post instructions in the thread in 'bugs' in a minute - it worked for me.

    Nice and slow, just like I remember it.

    "The site may be a bit slow at first as the server is likely to take a hammering, with people requesting passwords. This should stabilise though."

    Ummm, I sure hope no one is expecting any increase in speed once people stop requesting passwords - that should have absolutely zero impact on a website - unless you are receiving about 100+ requests / second... which I seriously doubt.


    I have personally handled dozens of data / site migrations (even some very sticky ones), and it has never been done piecemeal - very curious how one would handle some PK/FK data relations if not done in a single backup/restore or bulk data transformation. Guess we will see...

    Yeah same thing is happening to me. I don't see anyway to turn it off either. Every time someone replies to this thread, I get an email.

    Personally, I think the new site sucks!

    Uhm... what happened? We've been de-huddlered?

    ^ yes painfully slow over here as well remik. Located in Chicago.

    Hopefully the speed issue can be fixed. Otherwise the older site is the best!

    Thanks for the help, lpp. I was able to seemingly fix the issue by finding a spot buried somewhere - I honestly cannot remember how I got there - that allowed me to unsubscribe to the blogpost.

    Can you define "normal"?

    I have a multi-10GigE connection to the net, and my MBP is connected to a switch on a 1Gbps port, with verifiable GigE connectivity (1000Mbps), yet "the new" basenotes.net takes 5-30 seconds per page to load (SOTD page takes a very long time, FORUM probably loads the fastest). This is orders of magnitude times slower than the previous system which would load pages in perhaps 1 second, maybe 2 seconds on a slow day.

    Since the mobile interface is no more, I installed Tapatalk on my iPhone 5s and it's even slower (on both Wi-Fi and LTE). Is this the future of BN on mobile devices?

    All tests done from San Diego, CA, if that helps.

    @LizardKing - Sotd data should catch up with the other data in due course.

    @fitch256 - will look into your issue.

    If members could start new threads for tech issues in the 'Bugs' section of the Community section please, they should receive attention.

    I will start a thread on the subscription issue for you, fitch256.

    I honestly did not even know this was happening until yesterday morning, and I have logged in every day before that. The sticky wasn't noticeably posted universally throughout the site until yesterday, so I had no idea this was going to happen until it was hours from happening.

    As advised in the announcement in Forum News prior to the move, pm's etc., will follow.

    Members were advised to save any data that might be required for immediate reference.

    I'm personally having normal load times - sorry that you're having problems.

    What can I say... it's on and off again. Right now pages do load - perhaps you've made server change to that LimitRequestFieldSize option I mentioned before? Page load times are dreadfully slow, though.

    I don't want to be overly dramatic, but, if the site does stay at these dreadfully slow load times, I can see myself visiting it on a much, much, much less frequent schedule. This site is only fun if you can participate in it, the forums, reviews, PMs, etc - quickly and easily. If you have to wait 20+ seconds for a single page to load, it becomes annoying very fast. Hope you can appreciate it - as you have already made one move before to fix this exact issue. Now we are back to square one, with reviews and forum posts from April 2013 and nothing in between, no PMs and no feedback.

    It's really odd getting email notifications for "new" messages posted on April 21... My newest PM in my inbox is dated May 1.

    The site has not been "moved back to the old system" - someone just took an old site backup from May and restored it onto a new cPanel server, and I hope it's not nimbushosting's 15.00 plan, because it really feels like the server is terribly underpowered to handle this site.

    scent of the day is not accurate, missing a lot of the recent stuff. I can live with it but please no more switching around.

    That's weird - I just copy/pasted from your post & it loaded fine & the link just worked as well.
    Sorry you're having a problem, maybe someone techy can advise.

    http://www.basenotes.net - redirects to http://www.basenotes.net/content.php - generates the error posted above.

    If I change it manually to http://www.basenotes.net/content/ - same results.

    The above URL did work, on and off, about 30 minutes ago. Mostly off, but every now and then it would load.

    The links at the top "Welcome... Notifications... Your Profile... Your Wardrobe... Settings..." - they work now, 3:33pm PST, but 15 minutes ago all were going to an error page OR cPanel default site page.

    Thanks for doing the switch back. It feels good to be "home". Nice and familiar and simple and easy.
