I actually hope that the like button will come back, it added something to the forum, a way of expressing ourselves and sharing opinions.

Have patience, people, the "like" button has only been gone for a day.

Saru needs to install a patch to the site. He has done a huge amount of work and still has a lot to do.

Whilst the "like" button was a nice addition it is not really important. The "like" button was slowing the site down unacceptably.

Would you rather have a slow, poorly running site with a "like" button? Would it really make that much difference if it didn't return at all?

I would suggest that anyone that answers yes to either of those questions should really look at their reasons for making a post in the first place.

Also, post I made yesterday acknowledging all of Saru's hard work:

Well I'm glad to know where the like button has gone. Hope we can keep it as I use it a lot instead of posting (not that it is noticeable) lol

Great job on the update.

Saru, I don't know when you sleep. I suspect you are a robot.


I love the new look and everything is super fast for me with Firefox.

Once again, great work and thank you for a tremendous site and splendid tolerance of me.


The site ran fast and smoothly for me since the update with or without the button.  I can take it or leave it.  As I don't run a website I don't know what all is involved in installing a patch.  So excuse my ignorance and impatience.

Waspie's comment was only a general notice about what's happening, it wasn't aimed at anyone in particular.

The like system won't be back until next week at the very earliest, i'll be posting updates in this thread when i know more.

Update:

The 'like' system has been disabled for the time being as it appears to be contributing heavily to server performance issues, internally it has produced a cache table containing several million records and this produces long wait times when viewing threads, especially long threads with hundreds of pages. The result is that the more time passes with the 'likes' enabled, the slower things get until the forum becomes practically unusable.

I'm going to bring this up with Invision support and see if there's a way we can keep the 'like' system without this happening. We have been archiving some of the largest threads on the boards and while this does help overall performance it isn't enough on its own to counter the problem.


Crap, I wanted to " like " this reply.....

Saru, I have not said it, other than in my head.....Site looks great, thanks for the hard work, and time.

Your link is to the embedded player version of the video, it needs to point to the full video URL to work - i.e.

Ok, thanks....Strange, copied and pasted how I have the others I had posted before.....The video was on another news story, I had clicked on " watch on youtube ", and used youtubes link after that.......Something to watch out for..Thanks again Saru.

Actually i think the problem in this case is the "#!" you've got on the end of the link, try it without that.

I think you were right...I edited my reply above :)

Using the " watch on you tube " link ( after directed to youtube from it ) the address is different than if I just search that video title and go to it......Somehow must have directed me to the embed link.

It worked using a different link......

it's still doing it. When i tried to post something just now, twice the three little dots went back & forth but it didn't come up, so I had to open it again and copy & paste it.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.
