Can someone explain what is going on with ATS at :28 - :32 minutes past every hour?
ATS always seems to get really wonky right at that moment, every hour (i.e. double posts, triple and even quadruple posts, delayed posts, etc.).
It's like there is some giant process that runs on ATS on the half hour, because everything seems to grind to a halt. This is particularly true in
the morning hours here in the US, but it's not limited to the morning hours.
My eyes are now trained to look at my clock every time I see a delay or double post, and it is almost always within a minute or so of the half hour.
The other day, I had the weirdest thing of all happen. I actually had a double OP. I posted with a complex subject line and it came back and said
the title was already in use (which would have been a triple OP). I looked at new and saw my same title posted twice, so I edited one of the two and
it was indeed a separate post with the exact same title. So I flagged my own duplicate post and requested it be removed. Again, right at the bottom
of the hour.
Can someone shed some light on what's going on at the bottom of the hour on ATS?
