Delicious slowness and upgrades

5/27 10:40 PST: Some users have been experiencing slowness this morning.  We’re performing some upgrades and should have everything back to normal in an hour or so.

Update 11:37 PST:  Issues appeared to be cleared now.  Please contact support@delicious.com if you experience any further issues.

Update 04/10/15

*Update:* Users using the legacy bookmarklet are seeing  a persistent “Rate limit exceeded” message. Our engineering team is still working through these issues. We have no estimations yet.

*More databases are being upgraded caused by load spikes of unknown origins.

A load spike has caused database slowness for 10% of users. Please continue to check in for more updates and contact us at support@delicious.com if you are experiencing any other issues.

Site Maintenance

*Update:* The delicious API, feeds and previous are now working! We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced but are happy to announce that there should no longer be any issues. Please contact us at support@delicious.com if you experience otherwise.

*Update:* We are expecting the delicious API, feeds and previous to be unavailable for an additional hour. Please stay tuned for more information.

*Update:* The delicious API, feeds, previous will be unavailable for the next hour while database migrations continue. This should dramatically reduce the partial site outages some users are experiencing.

*URGENT SITE MAINTENANCE:* Database will be upgraded at 11:30 a.m. PT due to a large spike, causing an outage of unknown duration. We will keep you updated with the duration of this outage shortly. Check in with our blog posts to see any new updates regarding this issue!

*Update:*  The exporting of links is now fixed. If you are still experiencing any issues with exporting please contact us at support@delicious.com.

*Update:* Some users were experiencing problems loading feeds from feeds.delicious.com. We have fixed the problem, but please contact us if you encounter any more issues there. Other users have seen errors where the “Rate limit has been exceeded”, we are currently investigating this issue.

*Update:* Service was restored after approximately 20 minutes of downtime. If you find features that are not working, please contact us at support@delicious.com.

***Databases are going down now for maintenance.  Problems logging in are expected over the next 30 minutes.***

**Update:** The importing and exporting of links will be temporarily unavailable until Tuesday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated on the progress!

*Update:* We just had an executive meeting and our operations plan got a green light, we are going to go live tonight!

Delicious users,

We are currently in the process of moving our data center. The entire maintenance window is expected to be from Friday April 3rd at 8:00 p.m. PT until Saturday April 4th 9:00 a.m. PT. During this time you may experience interruptions when saving and retrieving links. We are anticipating a full site outage at some point during that window,  but we are expecting it to last less than 1 hour.

During the maintenance window, please try to minimize the number of links you save: they will appear in your saved links but there might be a delay when searching for them for up to  7 days. Any links saved before or after the window will appear immediately in searches.

 

Site Maintenance

Delicious will be experiencing maintenance at 7:00 p.m. PST today, Tuesday, February 24th 2015 as part of an ongoing series of upgrades over the next ten days. There should be no impact to users on delicious.com and brief outages on previous.delicious.com lasting no more than ten minutes at a time. The maintenance window is expected to last one hour. 
If you have any questions or feedback please e-mail us at feedback@delicious.com.

Update 11:18 p.m. PST: we are starting the updates. There should be a brief impact to users over the next few minutes.

Opt-In Email Bug Fixed

We just fixed an issue with the dialog box for opting into emails. Previously users were experiencing issues resulting in the dialog box not accepting chosen answers. It broke with a new version of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari last week. If you’re still experiencing issues, please do the following.

Refresh the page. If you see “There are updates to Delicious, Refresh (underlined), click there.

Do you see a popup asking you to opt in or out? Make your selection. The system will accept your selection this time.

See if scrolling is fixed, and report back to us. Also let us know the exact browser version and your username.

We’ve Been Working On Some Delicious Changes!

On behalf of the Delicious team, we are happy to announce that there will be some major improvements to our APIs, most of which will only affect developers. No end-user facing issues are anticipated with this new release. These changes will be going out all day Thursday and Friday. Be sure to check back with us to see what’s next!
