Has SoH been slow today? (In the comments, will you please list the users on a couple of the most recent polls asked? I feel like I'm not getting all my polls in my feed.)

I haven't been paying a whole lot of attention - it could be SOH or it could be my hillbilly Internet service...

Has anyone considered maybe a conspiracy theory for an explanation ?

I'm good at faulty explanations. Do you have one?

Mine seems pretty normal for a sunny Saturday. That is, performance is good, but activity is a little down from weekdays. The last user polls I got before yours were gallae, palindrome, JustBob, Hsim, jgoodni, RJ1969, UnknownVarial3le, Rob.

Awesome, I'm just crazy then! I always get confused whether weekdays are busier than weekends to be honest.

Tony, I cannot get to the polls on the app. I am currently using the website.

I'm gonna need a little more than that to be able to help. What are you doing and what is happening when you do?

I know if I go to the poll tab, I have to be patient. If you click the background, it'll kick you out. If I wait, I'm good.

Gafiate - you're following so many people that the system just isn't currently tuned to handle that. I'm sure a lot of things time out for you when trying to load either polls or Following lists. We'll get there, but we just aren't yet...

I've been meaning to ask you Tony, do you want me to follow less users? Is it better for you and the system? I hate to think I'm a nuisance. I would like to at least be able to follow those who are following me, but I can cut the others.

Oh sorry! I can do everything but view the polls. I can view profile, notifications, stats, etc. The only thing I cannot view are peoples polls.

All I see is a gray screen on the app. I can even ask a question on the app, and it goes through. I just cannot see other people's polls.

Right now, I have my iPad beside me (with the app) looking at the notifications. Then I use my computer (using the website) to go to a particular forum.

I get the gray screen that won't ever load sometimes. If I completely close out of the app and restart it, the problem goes away.

Yeah I have tried that numerous times. However, I still have the same problem.

None of the servers are reporting anything unusual. Can you tell me what specifically is slow for you? And to help troubleshoot can you try it on the web as well and see if it's slow there too, or just on the app? www.showofhands.mobi

It seems as if it is a mental/personal issue. I was concerned because when we first switched over, I was receiving significantly less polls than I was previously. It was resolved by unfollowing and refollowing. Now, I think I may be paranoid. Thank

You though, it's appreciated!

07/13/13 2:18 pm

Yeah! It started out that way for me. Now the app will not allow me to visit different polls. I can see everything else such as my profile, blog, etc. The website is good and everything, but I like the app the best because I get notifications on...

the app. Tony, the notification feature is just awesome.

Mine is being weird, too. Blank comments, polls are out of order each time I refresh the page, notifications not opening in active polls.

I get the blank comments too occasionally, right before it wants to crash.

BeachSt Coastal Virginia
07/13/13 2:30 pm

Yeah, mine crashes after that, as well, but it's the out of order polls thing that really throws me off. They're in a different order every time I refresh the page haha.

I haven't noticed that in the all polls tab, but in the unanswered tab. Is it both for you?

BeachSt Coastal Virginia
07/13/13 2:36 pm

I'm not sure, I rarely use the unanswered tab. I haven't paid enough attention to it on the few occasions I've used it. It's all on the "all" tab for me.

XercesBlue ...
07/13/13 2:38 pm

Lol. Probably so then, I constantly use the unanswered one instead of the all. We're SoH poll yin/yang

I've gotten as little as 3-5 polls a day when I used to get 70+ a day before the new update.

I had the same problem, but then I deleted all of the users I was "following" and refollowed them. After this, I was receiving polls like normal! Now, not so much.. It's a different of 600 polls a day. :(

Mine is like 50-70 a day. Some times more. I've gotten as little as 3-5 polls in a day when I used to get 70+ a day.

07/13/13 2:50 pm

Loch, I would try unfollowing and refollowing. I used to receive 800+ polls a day and it went down to 175ish. When I unfollowed and refollowed, it went back up to 800+ (for the day). It wasn't until I got back up to 1000+ following that it did not

Transfer them all again. You may benefit from it, providing that you have the time.

I will try that.

07/13/13 2:58 pm

Hope it helps. I noticed most of the users you are following are probably your followers. It's easy to remember who to follow back when they're on your list.
