PLEASE READ: I appreciate everyone's feedback in regards to the current Lounge situation. From version 1.0 in 2009, I've built MouseWait based on user feedback. I think there is some confusion however, based on several posts and comments I've seen, in regards to the issue with page numbers. If you go back and read my last few posts, I clearly state that I am not done with this upgrade and I have explained the problem with pagination on mobile pages - it's not just something I randomly or haphazardly removed. Pagination is something that is not scalable in our situation. I spent hundreds of hours - and thousands of dollars - going back and forth with our entire development team, as well as outside developers, to find a solution for handling our exponential growth (over the last few days our traffic and daily usage has been higher than ever - even with our current issues). It wasn't long ago that we couldn't even keep our server online, now it rarely goes down, and that is because I invested a ton of money and time making fundamental changes to maintain the load. If these types of modifications aren't done in advance, the entire system could fail and it would take weeks or months to fix when the load becomes too much. Most months, from 2009 to the present, I've put more money into MouseWait than I make - in an effort to innovate and move MW forward. Innovation costs money and sometimes has unforeseen challenges that come with it. When I am done with this new upgrade, the Lounge will be better than before. In addition to this recent challenge, we've gone through almost 150 builds to get 5.0 ready, which has cost me a tremendous amount of time and money because of the several major setbacks we experienced during our biggest update yet (5.0 is a complete rebuild). However, the end result will be the most advanced Disneyland app in history. We have a lot on our plate right now, along with getting MagicRace launched in time for the Birthday Bash. Like I said, I have no problem with people voicing their opinion, but in this case it seems as if my explanations about the current situation have not been taken into consideration.
