Exchange bugged

It takes a ridicilously long time to place orders, to take orders down or even to search for something (up to 30 seconds). No, it´s not just me. A few people from my fleet experienced that as well.
The fact that jellyfish have survived for 650 million years despite not having brains is great news for stupid people.

    Please fix the exchange database, this is unusable! 50% of the items posted come back to the inventory due to timeout. It is even possible to post more than 40 items. Whatever you have changed in the server backend, undo it!

    This issue is now begining to bleed over to the Doff projects & Fleet Projects. So yer it really needs sorting out.

    The game is overall too slow atm, not only the exchange. I'm experiencing problems with loading new maps - it takes too long. Moving items in the bags or in the bank is slowed down too. Please fix this - it's extremely annoying!

    Same problem with exchange here.

    It's taking over 30 seconds for the search button to enable, and searching for critical components returns nothing. (Presumably it's timing out.) Posting items is also silently failing. It's July 9.
    Actually, selling's failing in general.

    Yeah, exchange has been laggy and problematic since Thursday. Now it's not working at all. Been stuck "searching" for 10 minutes now.

    Exchange has been completely frozen for me for an hour now. Even after logging out of my account entirely and logging back in with different characters, it still shows 'All items of type "All" containing "xyz"' for a search I tried to start an hour ago. The Search button has been grayed out ever since I first pressed it an hour ago.
    Also, Reset button doesn't do anything.

    Seems to be up and running again now.

    I was experiencing this issue as well.
    But I thought it was because Starfleet Academy was laggy.
    A fleetmate confirmed this to me.

    From memory, accessing the exchange at Deep Space Nine was perfectly fine.

    Also experienced all of the above, with varying levels of severity at different times, which started after thrusday's patch when the new T6 Xindi ships were added.

    Same issues, slow exchange or unable to make purchases. I have tried for two days to purchase a Photonic BOFF. I tried at DS9, Drozana, Sierra 39, and ESD on two characters with no luck. I just get the message saying unable to complete the purchase please try later. Have they officially acknowledged a problem? Hope they get it straightened out soon.

    Exchange still slow but not as bad today.

    Still not healthy for STO.

    Has anyone for Cryptic at least acknowledged they are aware of the Exchange issue?

    At least that would be encouraging knowing they're attempting to fix it.

    I do not have any problems using the Exchange today. I probably spent around 45 minutes sitting in front of the Exchange listing things for sale on various characters and also searching for things to buy.

    Yes, today the exchange seems to work for me, I´ve had no problems so far. Let´s hope it stays that way. :)

    So, I tried again today to buy one of those Photonic BOFF's (Fed Eng) but was unable. Is anyone aware of any restrictions that would limit the purchase of one? I have at least one slot open, more EC than required, and am lvl 60+ Fed. AM I missing something? I am able to make other purchases on the exchange with no problems.

    (Problem Solved - I already had an open BOFF slot, but apparently what I needed was an open BOFF Candidate Slot, maybe both. Anyway, once I made a training manual out of one of my existing 15 BOFF Candidates I had an open BOFF candidate slot and the purchase, and commission of the new Engineering Photonic BOFF went through without a hitch.)

    The response time in the Exchange has been much better the last couple days. BUT, there's still the really frustrating bug where the item descriptions (the smaller text, such as "Bonus Expertise" underneath a Doff's name and profession) are either missing or incorrect in the search results. I need to click on Sell and then Buy again to get them to show the correct text. That bug has been around for about 4 months.
