Sorry about that! Some weird hiccup with some of the assets. Should be all good now!

@chendo: any chance this change is affecting the way portfolio pages are loaded? Since a few days ago (I don’t know when, exactly) I’ve noticed significantly slower loading of my own portfolio pages (all marketplaces), in both Chrome and Firefox, but ONLY when I’m logged in. When I’m logged out, it works instantly. (I tried clearing cache and cookies but nothing changed)

This change does not affect portfolio pages, only the upload process. When you’re logged in and you view your own portfolio pages, we do more intensive queries for your commission figures etc, hence the page loads slower.

If you like Alfred, you might like Shortcat (disclaimer: I wrote it :D). It lets you search and click UI elements via the keyboard.

Otherwise, I use Sublime Text 2, Alfred, Dash, Bartender, iStat Menus and iTerm2 on a daily basis.

I’ve noticed some changes a few days ago. I thought I should mention this, as I think it might be related: a few days ago I had a file soft-rejected because of preview image. I fixed it and uploaded (via ftp) and when I went to the upload form via Firefox to update my hidden item, after pressing “Submit” button, I was redirected to a blank page and although update went through, it didn’t contain my updated file. Later I tried it via Chrome and it worked well.
When exactly? We turned it on for everyone about 12pm on Friday (GMT+10) after a day of rolling it out to ~10% of authors. We had some teething issues initially but ironed them out by around 2pm.

Hi, Chendo. Sorry for late response. I just checked my emails. It happened on 3rd May, a few minutes after 3:20 PM. And then again a few minutes after at 3:40 PM (yes, it took me two attempts to switch from Firefox to Chrome and succeed :) ). Timezone is UTC+1

I can also probably find the URL that was shown in Firefox on the blank page, if you need that info as well? Something with suffix “job_id=....”, something like that.

The job_id would make my life a lot easier if you have that :)

Hey all,

We’ve updated the item upload forms (both new item upload and item update upload) as well as portfolio upload form to be asynchronous. Previously, if one were to upload an item or portfolio with large (300MB and up) attachments, you would sometimes get the dreaded “405 Method Not Allowed” error. This update pushes the processing for the update into the background, thus prevents that error from occurring.

Please let us know if you still get the “405 Method Not Allowed” issue.

We’ve just reverted the change that’s probably causing the issue; please let us know if this issue still persists.

those assets are stored to amazon s3 cdn, meanings each user is loading them from different servers according to geo location.

most likely it’s a temporary routing issue between user isp and a particular server.

Correct! It’s likely that this is limited to a particular ISP . If anyone sees this problem again, please let us know and mention what ISP they are with and if in the US, what state as well.

Shouldnt you be filtering on the entrance, when registration is taking place? And if you cant handle that, this seems pretty pointless to me. How does the ‘anti spam forum filter algorithm’ suppose to look anyway…

There’s no way to be sure that a user is a spambot when they first sign up. They have been manually setting up accounts, then use automated scripts to spam. And if we told people how the algorithm works, then it’ll make it much easier for them to get around it.
