I have enjoyed participating on this site for quite a while now, and it has been invaluable as LibO is the only office suite I use on a regular basis.
However, it seems to me as if Askbot is struggling to cope now. The response times from the site are very slow. Searches sometimes (even frequently) return with “Service unavailable”. Generally the responses from the site are sluggish when editing. I continue to regret that LibO opted for Askbot in preference to attempting to establish a site in the Stack Exchange network.
My “meta” questions are two:
- What can be done to improve the response times and performance of this site?
- If the response to #1 is, “Not much”, or “When the developer gets around to it”, then what are the possibilities of looking at a Stack Exchange launch?
(P.s. As I try to tag this post, the spinner just keeps spinning without any autocomplete on the tags I’ve chosen! Case in point…)
