Since switching to the http://goodnews.click/ domain I often visit but no articles are shown (especially on my iPad). I have to click on Refresh twice to see them.
Yes, it works better now, thanks!
That's our API's main content request method and that's where the HTTP500 occurs, yes. Considering that it usually works after 1-2 retries, it's probably a database performance issue.
I'm still looking into the actual cause of it. In order to improve user experience a bit I made the news stream refresh function just retry 3 times in case of error. This way at least you don't have to do it manually.
Yep, exactly. getstream is the most important API method for Good News to work properly and unfortunately there is an increasing amount of HTTP500 responses. We are going to try to find a pattern. Could be related to the database, or server config changes for timeouts. On it. Thanks and sorry again.
If it helps "http://goodnews.click/api/v2.0/?a=getstream&cid=151661&_=1426661008338" takes 5.5 sec and then returns 500.
