TFL is totally jacked up for me today

I doubt this'll even post right. Every time I try to post, I get a database error message. Then, get this.... sometimes my post goes through, and sometimes it doesn't, AND when it doesn't go through, as shown by the thread page itself, it STILL shows up as having been posted when I try to post again, and it shows my below the new posts, what the older posts to-date are. In other words, my post is there when I try to re-post but NOT there when just viewing the thread ordinarily. Am I the only one getting this?

I didn't notice it when I was posting this morning...

I too was getting database error messages and slow loading. I just spent 30 minutes deleting duplicate posts in several forums, some of them mine. It seems to have settled down now.

Yes, thank you. It miraculously cleared up an hour or so later. :shrug:

TFL got more memory Saturday, and rebuilding the indexes got fowled up Sunday night. I didn't notice until mid-morning, but I suspect the broken search index was making the new-post process unreliable. After a post gets committed, it gets indexed for searching. That second part was failing, and vbulletin isn't the most robust web application on the planet. So a problem that should have only affected searching (which is irrelevant because the search index is being rebuilt at the moment, and it'll get to those new posts in a day or so) ended up causing inconsistency across the board.
