Update: Latest Deals downtime has finished. We're back live!

Latest Deals

Update from Kelsey - Thanks for bearing with us! We've completed the metaphorical "turn it off and on again" and should now be good to go! Everyone's posts, comments and likes should be back. If you have any issues please let me know. Happy deal hunting! πŸ™‚

=====

Update from Tom - I am sorry, there is a technical problem on Latest Deals today. To fix it, we need to turn Latest Deals off. We will be staying up late tonight, and from midnight until the early hours Latest Deals will be off. For further updates and an explanation, please read the most recent comments below.

Original post below - The title has been edited by Tom

I wondered if there is a problem on LD this morning as I posted 4 deals and only 3 are showing, however, when I went to repost the 4th one (Samsonite) it said it was already posted.

I also posted 3 comps and got the points for all 3 but only 2 of those are showing and the other hasn't gone into moderation.

A glitch??

Cool.

I posted this and it's still unavailable on the site @ https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/freebies/elite-dangerous-world-next-door-pc-epicgames

It's hidden or something for some reason.

I noticed this last night, some of the comps I shared have vanished. They are still on here, but they're not showing on my profile as shared, they don't show up in the search results, etc.

Lynibis we are still having issues and it is affecting chat too - I posted a chat topic about 90 minutes ago and that has disappeared too along with 4 of my deals! Kelsey is looking into it and it's taking longer than anticipated but when I have an update, I will post in here and let you all know. Thanks for bearing with us!

Hello everyone, another update on this. We are aware of a website issue where some posts are not showing in Search, Dashboard, Chat etc. All your posts and points are safe, we are just working on a fix and look forward to have it all running smoothly again soon.

By way of explanation, Latest Deals has experienced huge growth over the last few months. We have doubled in size in terms of the number of members joining and searching for deals (1.5m+ members now). This a great problem to have. However, behind-the-scenes it means we have had to re-jig things to make them as efficient as possible. Imagine a bajillion spreadsheets, all tens of thousands of rows long, all running simultaneously on your computer. Things start to get slow.

Your community one-man dream-team tech wizzard, Kelsey, is coding furiously fast to get ahead. Together, we will get there! Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Hopefully people will leave you be to get on with it and congrats on having so many members, though yes it must slow things a little. A chat disappears to 2nd page before anyone has a chance to see it!

Hello everyone. We are very sorry but to fix the problem, we are going to require some downtime. We are staying up late tonight, and intend to turn off the website between midnight - early hours (please give us some wiggle room on that estimate) whilst we fix it.

Heads-up night owls ( Bestoffer...) and early-risers ( Johnny).

I hope to have good news for you tomorrow morning!

Have a good evening,

Tom
