Forums  /  The Site  /  Delayed notifications
  GarshGarsh

Recently, it seems my notifications have been delayed by roughly 19 hours. For example, I was added to a game as a moderator at 7:00 PM (EDT) yesterday. I just got the notification at 2:00 PM (EDT) today. Something similar seems to be happening with new run notifications, new top 3 pb notifications, etc. This is probably a result of the silent update that happened recently. Is anyone else having this issue?

This is a result of me adding around 10K runs to Minecraft: Legacy Console Edition's IL leaderboards causing about 1.5K notifications to be sent out per followed person.

Or well I think it was me anyways.

Sorry! (not sorry)

Same here, my most recent run was verified at around 4:00 AM PST, and I just got the notification for it 20 minutes ago.

@11 Just curious, how come you didn't submit the fastest time for each IL first before sending all the other runs? And if that's not possible, why not a placeholder 1 ms run at the very top. This would mean only one notification gets sent per IL instead of thousands.

Non serious answer: Le funy Pog

Serious answer: People asked me to do them from slowest to fastest to see how many notifications they would get. This was a very hyped up moment and event.

@11 So you intentionally spammed people's notifications and killed the site's performance in the process as a joke. Nobody finds this funny at all and thinking its a "hyped up moment and event" just shows how little you actually care.

If I was actively following the game (i don't) I would have been extremely pissed off at you for doing this.

Idk if that really killed the website on its own. I remember reading somewhere in the forums from an elo programmer, that something broke or they had a bug or something, so it might just be a coincidence.

@Matse007Matse007, even if it didn't kill the site, intentionally spamming notifications and then shrugging it off as a joke is still extremely immature.
Just for reference, they easily sent out over a million notifications assuming 1k people follow that game.

While yes I did the runs in reverse order intentially for the memes, it was never my intention to tank the sites performance. I assumed that a site of 800K users and 2 Million runs could handle a glorified auto hotkey script that submits 10K runs over the course of 24 hours.

Actually, after making my posts here I did some thinking and am doubting whether or not this is my fault as opposed to a bad coincidence. My script had been running for a day and a half with little to no site issues. It was only afterwards that the site when to absolute shit. I then ran the bot for another hour or so and the site proceeded to be half dead for another 14 hours.

(Part 2 because of the new 1000 character limit)

As for not being remorseful I do not really feel bad for maybe being responsible (I very well could be, but I am growing doubtful) for the site not handling what should not really be a very big work load when the sites API that would have allowed me to have been done with my project ages ago has been broken for years with no care from anyone to fix it.

I mean, mce is not an active game at all. There are thousands of people who follow minecraft java edition though. If I were to turn on notifications for everything there, I could probably get hunderds, maybe even thousands of notifications per day. The site needs to be able to handle all of that. However, it probably was not caused by the notifications at all. The last time the site was running like this was when elo was about to release a major update, so that might be the cause.

@11 If you were doing it over the course of a day rather than all at once, it definitely should not cause any site issues then, especially now that site has been considerably more stable since elo took over. Either way, you still filled up people's notifications with a lot of garbage which would be quite annoying to those who actually check them and were not in on the joke. This isn't something you need to feel remorseful over but at least think before you decide to shit up people's notifs.

Wow, I started a war.

This explains why the site has been absolutely chugging recently, I thought it was just my garbage internet.

Unlike a good amount of moderators on the site, he actually moderates his games decently.

Sure, everyone does a slip up, but as the website still tanks really badly, I am sure at this point, that there is something else.
Also nice first forum post. I hope you enjoy your stay on the forums 🙂

(It is quite interesting how the BFBB gang here did not post anything at all before interacting in here or at least not for years)

In any case, being toxic about it wont fix the sites performance. Who know, maybe the webserver actually just needs to be restarted.
As long as Elo does not clarify what is causing this issue (they acknowledged it here: https://www.speedrun.com/the_site/thread/3t3qo/ ), piling up on someone who may have caused this, is just dumb and we should do better.
