Hi, suddenly everything is really slow on my campaign page. It takes forever to open, edit or save anything. It worked fine earlier today so not sure what has changed. Everything else on my browser works fine.
Hi @Mortagon! Are you still experiencing this?

I am experiencing this issue when attempting to view or edit existing pages. It doesn't happen every time.

I have not had that issue today, FYI
Just trying to help out.
Got it! Do you mind if I send you a separate email to get some more information about this issue? :) @Abersade
Sure! Happy to help.
We were being crawled/scanned by something. It was bringing the database to it's knees, and also messed up the search index updating, so search was only giving partial results for a bit.
We made a few code changes to lessen the impact of crawling/scanning on the database, and we think we've blocked the crawler (for now at least), and the database is no longer being slammed, and the search index has been regenerated, so as of a couple hours ago all should be working smoothly again.
Please let us know if you see any further issues.

I got hit with a bunch of 502 errors on Saturday, and even today when I click on links the site is very sluggish and slow to respond.

Hey @UselessTriviaMan I appreciate you letting us know what's going on- I know it's super frustrating. We've noticed too and have been working on managing an onslaught of bots right now. We're actively working on finding a permanent solution and hope to have things smoothed out before too long. Thank you so much for your patience- and feel free to keep us posted on what you're expeirencing!

I experience this too, it's now difficult to use Obsidian Portal when I was in the middle of a game session for reading my notes so I hope you will find a solution :)
Thanks for your efforts!

Things are much better yesterday and today- thanks for all the effort!
502's still happening for myself and players. It's not all the time, but when it happens, it can bork up loading the campaign for anything up to about fifteen minutes before working again. Hope you guys can fix it soon. x
Hey everyone- thanks for keeping us updated on everyting! The battle is continuing, but we aren't giving up! We put some more measures in place last night, but it looks like there's been more trouble this morning. So we're getting back in the fight and will keep everyone updated. I just want to say that we have the absolute BEST members! I know this has been EXTREMELY frustrating for so many of you- especially considering it's been going on for a bit now. It's frustating for us too and we are determined to get things back in order. We are so so so thankful for all of your support and your patience!
Hey Everyone! Just wanted to give you a quick update on our ongoing battle against the lag and 502 errors! We've discovered that in addition to the bots, our new backlinking feature has been contributing to some of the issues we've been having recently. As a result we have *temporarily* disabled this feature so we can get things straightened out. We're actively working on reworking the feature and will bring it back into service ASAP. In the meantime- we appreciate everyone's support and please keep us posted on any errors or disruption in service!
