After the last release our new spiffy lastupdate feature that was supposed to keep track of when data in the database changed brought our database server to its knees.
The problem was that if we had an artist, we would also go update all of its releases. And if you updated a release, the artist and label had to be updated. We turned off all of the cascading updates and our server went back to normal.
Thus, for the time being updates will not cascade. If you update an artist, none of the releases or associated labels will update. In the future we will see if we can improve on this.
The good news in this is that the Dashboard feature is still useful, so I’ve turned it back on and made it live on the main server.
P.S. We just passed our 10 millionth edit!!
