00:50 jimallman hi jar286! i’m just back from dinner. the apache scoreboard looks *so* much saner now.
00:51 jar286 yes
00:51 jar286 I think the redditers just got bored, or our item got downvoted
00:51 jimallman of course, we’ve also fallen off the front page of reddit
00:51 jar286 good
00:52 jimallman karen’s AMA might provoke a similar surge
00:53 jar286 hmm… doubt it… but I’d still like to set up an extra server or two (just procrastinating)
00:53 jimallman (i’m finally creating a Reddit account tonight)
00:53 jar286 the comments were interesting
00:53 jimallman an extra server on standby can’t hurt, might help
00:54 jimallman some of the commenters clearly recognized the scope of the project, that it’s more than an exercise in taxonomy
00:54 jimallman some were grumpy that we don’t provide genomic data, others didn’t like the design. all very interesting.
00:55 jimallman (i assume some folks were hoping for a more razzle-dazzle visualization, while we deliberately stayed close to conventions for a phylogram/cladogram. food for thought.)

01:55 mtholder it does indeed look much saner, yay for that!
01:57 mtholder and the time wget -O /tmp/wgettest http://localhost/static/statistics/synthesis.json test is fast
01:57 mtholder 0.009s
01:58 mtholder yay again
02:37 jimallman schweet

10:50 guest|29361 thank you for creating and researching this tree
10:51 guest|29361 as an elementary school teacher, may i be so bold as to request a 'expand tree to humans' button or a 'expand tree to x' button, and if the latter, much like USA often shows at the top of lists of location options on internet forms, could 'humans' show at the top of such a list?
10:58 guest|29361 or... i could just use the search feature and find someone to contribute to the git. ha! again - many thanks

13:43 guest|30942 Dear Tree of life Authors. I saw your press release and have been browsing the tree you created. What you have accomplished is truly awesome. I was wondering if I noticed something off, how you would prefer to be contacted about  it?
13:45 kcranstn there are a few links here: https://tree.opentreeoflife.org/contact
13:45 kcranstn best option is to open an issue in the feedback repo (if you have a github account):
13:45 kcranstn https://github.com/OpenTreeOfLife/feedback/issues
13:45 guest|30942 Ok. Great. Thanks.
13:45 kcranstn we had to turn off the comments on the site temporarily because of server load

14:06 jimallman website status, Mon AM: we’re still on the home page of /r/science, but not the Reddit front page. site is quick to respond. apache has lots of idle connections.

14:30 mtholder jimallman, would it be tricky to enable the interface for creating a new comment without showing the existing comments?
14:30 mtholder may not be worth it, if we are not going to have comments off for long.
14:30 Guest04621 Hi, I'm wondering if there was some sort of issue with the "Download subtree as Newick string" feature on the Open Tree site?  Every group I've tried it on has returned a blank file, except for Eukaryota which only returned six species.
14:31 jimallman mtholder: it’s definitely doable, but (as you say) maybe not worth it if we can restore the normal tool after the launch rush.
14:31 jimallman Guest04621: hm, that definitely sounds like a bug. we’ll look into it!
14:32 Guest04621 good to hear. thanks!
14:32 Guest04621 left #opentreeoflife
14:36 mtholder jimallman. yes. it would be a bit jarring to leave a comment and not see it, too.
