Munchkin Mod

With this week's Marketo outage, our website's reaction got us into thinking that we might manage the Munchkin a little differently.

We surely had the Async=true version of the munchkin implemented, as described as no. 2 on Marketo dev (http://developers.marketo.com/javascript-api/lead-tracking/) but during the outage, our pages were hanging and refused to load.

Our dev team came up with this mod (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/25786826/marketo-munchkin-synchronous-requests-hurt-js-performan...) and implemented it.

Is there someone who could provide feedback on that mod? Any side effect, lead tracking issues or misbehavior I should be aware of?

Cheers,

Simon

Re: Munchkin Mod

Forcing async "works" for performance but it's equivalent to turning off Click Link activity tracking. (Unfortunately, you aren't actually turning it off, you're making it overwhelmingly unreliable so a fraction of events will still be logged, which is confusing.)
