First, let me address the site speed issue because I know how frustrating it is. Starting Monday, some of the best Drupal developers will be handling our issue, looking at every piece of code and making sure that the performance of this site is greatly increased. I will spare no expense to have this done and done immediately.
The amount of hardware (servers) we’re utilizing right now to run our site would be enough, under normal conditions, to handle 50 times the traffic we would ever receive. So, we’re definitely doing everything we can to get through the next painful few days until experts take over.
I’ve read every post in the forums. There have been some good criticism, some good suggestions and some good feedback. The criticism and the suggestions were evaluated all day today. With that said, starting Monday, as a priority, the following tasks will be addressed:
We will build a second stable page giving players an option. The second stable page will favor bigger stables and will proved a simple, straightforward list of all your horses, including their status and, if they’re in a tournament, has it begun. If it has begun, how many races are available and how many races have already run. In addition, if the tournament has started and there are races available to enter, there will be a direct link to click that will pop open another page where you can enter the remaining races for that tournament. On top of all this, we are going to incorporate all the training tools as part of this page as well. I expect this will substantially help players with big stables to manage, even more efficiently than in the past, their barns.
Two other suggestions that I loved – one was under the Recently Ended Trainer Tournaments, the option to filter for your horses only. This feature will be added, and the same feature will also be added under Trainer Tournament Races Soon to End.
I’m also having them work on making sure the View Upcoming Trainer Tournament tool works in a more efficient manner.
I know there have been a lot of other good suggestions. Right now, we need to focus on the site performance and features that help players manage fairly large stables efficiently.
More updates in a couple of days. Hopefully, every day we continue to improve.
