    Stopping the message board and reopening it cleared up the server issues--I don't know why. I will keep monitoring it and see if I can get a better handle on the situation, but I do have a theory that it might have been related to resetting some counters in the DB (part of the vBulletin 4 upgrade process that has to be manually initiated by an admin). I'd be curious if folks are still noticing slowdowns because the server load looks pretty reasonable right now. (There are a few things I plan to do to mitigate performance issues a bit more, like moving all the CSS back to the file system, but I don't want to do that until I've fixed the layout issues since those changes will start getting cached by the CDN and browsers.)

    The positioning of content in posts containing ads should now be fixed.

    I made most of the smilies pretty (except because it had no equivalent).

    FYI, I found a few settings around marking threads read. The current settings are basically "fast and inaccurate"; there are two other settings that involve more DB hits that are apparently more accurate. I don't want to change this right now because I'm seeing unusually high server loads at times, so I want to avoid pushing it further at this time.

    Regarding the "hot threads" -- I don't see this issue. It looks like any thread with 15+ replies is currently getting the hot icon. Can you point me to the specific threads you're noticing?

    Another "when you get around to it" kind of bug...

    When we "go advanced" to reply to something... can you make that preview and editor track the window width?
    If not can you at least make it a bit wider?

    Sadness

    Eh. I've always preferred vBulletin 3. I've always liked how smooth this site runs on crappy computers.

    When you vote on a thread, the message that says your rating has been recorded appears twice.

    @Mario F: I think the reason that the post "Displaying an Image with C++" is hot is because it has so many views. I'm guessing that something like 500+ views is a threshold for making it hot even if it doesn't have as many replies.

    Still getting duplicate posts
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I noticed that I had a duplicate post too. I was hoping that vBulletin 4 might help with the issue, but it seems to be making it worse for some reason.

    Ah, makes sense.

    Not so much a bug, but this is pretty bad performance.

    I pressed "find new posts" and it shows "Search took 2.59 seconds."

    This is heading towards 10x what the old board used to take.

    Is a lot of new / changing stuff going to propagate through CDN?

    Would it be better turned off until the dust settles?

    Today the C board is terribly terribly slow. I don't know what it 's doing, but it sure isn't fast in doing it. Also, you still see posts without code tags. Is this people without JS enabled? It's pretty bad that I can't use a braces in my normal sentence because it thinks I'm posting code, but people can still post 50 lines of code without code tags. Also there are a whole bunch of extra lines after your post but before your sig.

    Quzah.
    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
