New Server

@Tobias when you switched to your RasPi for your friendica instance, did you just start completely over from scratch, or did you keep/migrate your database as well?

I would agree. Also, does that indicate that I am indeed using the worker backend.

Basically, what I experience when posting replying is the "constant hourglass", I click submit and the cursor just spins while visually nothing changes. Then after quite some time, the post goes through and the page updates itself.

@Friendica Support
I don't know if it is me, but my Friendica instance has been acting more strangely than usual lately. I've been using the frio theme, so I don't know if it is related to that or a "core" issue.

My posts/replies haven't been posting, or at least they post slowly. I accidentally double replied to a post earlier this morning. Most times when posting the comment box or floating widget (depending or whether or not I am replying or composing) just sits there after clicking share and I notice in the background that the page updates, or I get a notification. When I refresh the page, then all looks normal.

On the visual side of things, my avatar icon is the default "head and shoulders" in the message threads but appears just fine on my profile as well as the upper right settings area.

I've been on the develop branch for some time and also recently, updated and ran the db update script. Anyone else having abnormal behavior lately?

@rabuzarus so I tried the default theme and the same results. I think it is not the theme, bit definitely not the same behavior I have had over time.
