Update: Technical Issues on the Hub

Regions: Global

Tags: Hub, technical update, WITNESS

Three weeks ago my colleague Sameer posted an update regarding some technical problems we've been having on the Hub.

We've been working to address those issues and as a result have been working to move the Hub to new servers.  We've also been looking at new technical solutions for hosting and encoding videos.

We're Reviewing our Policy on Posting Comments

A few weeks ago we started allowing anonymous users to post comments directly to the Hub.  In an effort to keep comment spam down, we adopted CAPTCHA technologies in the commenting fields.

However, in the past day we've had an unusually large flow of spam and have now decided to suspend automatic publishing of comments by anonymous users until we can figure out what's going on.
