Hi everyone and thanks if advance for reading this.
I’m on a team organizing a THATCamp that will happen on March 21. I’ve been trying to build the website for the past week but everything is moving so slowly. I’m a little nervous about launching it because I’m afraid it will frustrate people trying to sign up.
I spoke to someone earlier this week who said people were working on this so I’m wondering if things are closer to being back to normal.
Thanks for this report! You’re right, the site was slow yesterday. I see you’ve been corresponding on Twitter about it with @reclaimhosting, as we have, and they’re tweaking things. For future readers of this post, see https://twitter.com/ReclaimHosting/status/697548358316126212 and associated conversations.
FYI, although the site is running MUCH better these days than it was before we moved to Reclaim, we do still have periodic issues, often due to the fact that it’s a great big network with 250+ sites and 9000+ users. But at least they’re not the SAME issues! If you’re interested, see this account of the history of THATCamp website issues over on the THATCamp Council forum at http://thatcamp.org/forums/topic/january-2016-thatcamp-council-meeting-agenda/ . Might write a blog post soon about it, as well.
Do feel free to keep talking to @thatcamp and @reclaimhosting on Twitter, but of course you can also post here if you like.
