Thanks Arjun, looking much better now.

One other observation though: Prior to this, the “Maintained by Me” and “Watched by Me” pages were incredibly responsive, and would refresh/update almost instantly. Now, however, it seems to take up to 10 seconds on a refresh.

Initially I chalked it up to the site warming up, after the fix was initially released. But a few days later, that’s still the case. Has something changed, to cause a slowdown?
