Thanks for all of the fixes!

However I still can't access my GM/Event Coordinator tab. :(

I get a goblin error page.

Nice work!
A major thanks go to the changes to the mobile site.
At least, posts now correctly scale so they are fully readable - several planes towards lawful good compared to chaotic evil from before!
We're now thoroughly in neutral/chaotic good terrain.

There is still areas which are wonky, e.g. the edit field does not scale, so once you type longer texts, your typed text & cursor vanish from screen and you can do nothing about it. No chance (but to turn horizontal and pray that the resolution is big enough now) to edit your text that is out of screen.
The submit button is also out of sight if you work in vertical mode - changing to horizontal works for me though.

Once again, thanks for this major update!

It looks like this is because the request is timing out due to how long it takes the application to process your GM sessions. However, as soon as it finishes, it should cache the result, making the page load in a second or so. Let me know if you still see it timing out and are unable to access it.

I attempted to load the page, got the goblin error page after 10 minutes, then went back to my account and attempted to load the page again. 10 minutes later it timed out again and I got the goblin error page.

We apologize for the inconvenience. I'll make sure to document this issue so we can improve the performance of this page in cases where it processes a large number of sessions.

In the meantime, since the problem is caused by a performance issue leading to a timeout, it should be possible (if unreliable) to get the page to load depending on the internet connection and how responsive our servers are at the time. I'm sorry we can't provide a more reliable workaround at the moment-- the tab will always attempt to calculate GM credits if it thinks the previously cached totals may be outdated, and the only way for it to stop doing so is if it manages to complete the calculation and save the result.

As a local coordinator, it is sort of important that I be able to access that page in order to create new events and obtain new PFS numbers.

I have tried many times at different times of day and night to get the page to load, with no success.

We have a code fix planned which will improve performance for this tab and allow it to load without making the time-consuming request to our servers, which should resolve the issue you're having. I'll make sure we prioritize including this fix in an update.

Hello Tech Friends,

I don't think the December 7th avatar update happened. Do we have a new release date for it? And will it include any Starfinder artwork?

Hopeful fan,

We have unfortunately had some plague in the House of Tech.

We'll shoot for the end of this week. It should include Starfinder artwork.

Thank you for your patience!

Starfinder artwork is good. May the House of Tech have a speedy recovery from their ailments.

Hmm


Has the House of Tech recovered fully? Are new Starfinder avatars on the way?
