ChinesePod Scheduled Maintenance (June 30th from 6 PM) BACK ONLINE

Last week, ChinesePod experienced some technical issues resulting in slower than normal speeds and disruption to our services.

As of now, the majority of issues are resolved, but we are still working on fixing the rest, which you can follow here.

In order to fully resolve the issue, we are scheduling a maintenance session this coming Friday which will result in a much-improved experience afterwards.

This is actually something we have been wanting to do for some time, but it’s just happening sooner rather than later.

The scheduled downtime to our website will be

Friday, June 30th at 6 PM (UTC+8) to Saturday Morning 6 AM (UTC+8)
During this time, the website and apps will not function.

We are sorry for this inconvenience but hope to have a much better service afterwards which will prevent problems like this from happening again.

If you have any comments or concerns, feel free to contact:

The site will be going down in T-20mins. See you on the other side with a hopefully speedier service. Wish us luck.

The ChinesePod servers have been successfully migrated and should be up and running much faster now. Please let us know below if you discover any strange behaviour and @John / @jitendra will try and fix it.

I’ve just noticed the ‘Placement Tests’ and the ‘Level Tests’ aren’t loading properly. (I tried in two different browsers.) It takes a long time for the page to load and then none of the test actually appears.

But other than that, everything is working wonderfully :slight_smile:
