Let's summon him. @imron! (depends on his notification settings what actually happens)

This will be one of the first notifications I turn off.  Nothing worse than being constantly beeped at.

Constantly? I think you misoverestimate how often it'll happen. Might be useful for when folk want a double post quickly deleted.

I think things are running a bit sluggishly at the moment, but there's a lot of background stuff going on while caches and indexes get rebuilt.

非常感谢!

(Yeah it's feeling slow to me too, but I'm sure now is not the right time to be assessing performance.)

Still no delete post option, right?  Guess that's just not in style these days.

I've slowed the background processes down so that the site isn't quite so sluggish. Might be a few days before it's all done though - it needs to rebuild all the post content (create HTML out of the BBCODE / smilies), rebuild the search index, other stuff. We basically won't have a search engine until it's done.

Those browser pop-ups can be turned off via the cog icon - it's a browser setting rather than a site one, you may have them turned on by default or have allowed them in a fit of enthusiasm.

I did indeed allow them in a fit of enthusiasm! I shall see how long it takes for the novelty to wear off.

I don't know if I'm unusual in this, but the page I tended to go to was the 'show unread content' or 'recent activity' or something like that.

The new equivalent page, even in 'condensed' view, shows also each instance of someone liking a topic and I wonder whether giving a line for each such notification there might end up clogging the page up once the forums are back up to full speed?

It just said my previous content has been restored. Keep your grubby hands off my stuff, admin!

Looks like it automatically saves anything you type in the editor if you don't post it.
