Note on Feministing Tech Problems

Due to technical issues, Feministing was down for most of the day today — our sincere apologies. We’ll be back to regular posting tomorrow.

As you are probably aware, we want you to know that we know how slow the site has been running lately and the difficulty folks have had to log in, comment, write community posts, or just to get on the damn thing. It short, it really sucks and we’re fully aware of the problem.

But we shall prevail! It’s going to take some time to get to the real root of the issue until the site will be back to full capacity, but we’re working with great folks and will have it back up and running smoothly as soon as it’s humanly possible. When that happens, we’ll make sure to let everyone know through our newsletter and social networks.

In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has been refreshing and loading their booties off to get to the site, as we have been doing the same to continue to get you your daily dose of feminist news every day. Thanks again so much for your patience!

    Ummm…if we posted up anything up at the Community, would it still get posted tomorrow?

    Yay! I haven’t been able to read in weeks without spending an hour loading the site.

    I’ve also noticed how slow the pages load.

    But one side-effect of how slow they load is that I can see just how much “dancing baloney” there is. While a cool-looking web page doesn’t _have_ to be a network and CPU hog, doing so takes more skill and time than most web designers and admins (and their clients) are willing to spend.

    Me, I’ve seen too many places take their old easy-to-use but not very slick websites and replace them with slick sites with lots of bells and whistles but which you can’t find anything on and which depend on features that don’t work. I’ll take useful-but-dorky over slick-but-unusable any day.
