    When are we getting the new and improved TSR app? Improved being a misnomer since it was never good to begin with
    Soon (ish).

    Is there ever going to be like an Instant messaging feature or private chatroom thing on TSR?
    Not especially likely, something like that is pretty tricky to moderate. Thread pages may get streamlined a bit though, the current interface is definitely a bit clunky, especially on fast-moving threads.

    The biggest worry is always speed and site reliability. With so many people on the site, we have to be careful not to piss off the student population with slow loading or downtime, even for a short while, it can cause massive problems. Generally though, it gets easier to spot common issues before they become a problem, so long as we remain reasonably vigilant. :lockstock:

    Well don't forget to report them so we can fix the place up.

    Probably around a North Scandinavian, I get outside but I tend to shrivel to a crisp in hot weather.
