Hey all ! I have a very large change that would love some help in testing out.
Over the past few months, I’ve completely rewritten the backend API of our website (ie, the bit that stores data whenever you take an action on the site that changes anything and retrieves stored data whenever you want to see things submitted by anyone else). This affects almost everything you touch on the website (aside from the actual mechanics of puzzle solving - though initial puzzle load, getting designs, submitting solves, etc is within scope). I’ve done pretty extensive testing, but it if anyone has some time, it would be great to have some additional help in pressing all the buttons possible and making sure nothing breaks.
It’s live on https://eternadev.org/ - it’s running on a database cloned just before the openknot round 3 closure. The only thing that you wouldn’t be able to test is getting credit from NOVA labs since that is only hooked up with the main website. I also want to hear about any instances you notice things are slower than normal, though if you run into that issue, I ask that you try any slow action twice - if it’s just slow the first time, its most likely not a real issue (instead having to do with database caching that wouldn’t typically be an issue on the live site).
If all goes well, I’d like to bring this live early next week - as early as Monday.
Thanks in advance!
