Slow Board

January 30th, 2006, 07:56 PM
Has anyone noticed that the load time for the board has been a lot slower for the last few days. When I'm trying to move around it takes forever for pages/posts to load even though I have high-speed internet.

I agree. It's been very slow.

Me too. We even had the cable internet guy over to fix it...:o

And people double post a lot because it freezes halfway through the transmission. I wait for the 3rd bar (you know the green bars while you wait?) and then I copy what I wrote, just in case and then I just click on the title and there's my post!

Thanks everyone - I will investigate.

Can people pinpoint though - is it more in the day late at night?

it was slow all weekend, day and night, and during the week I only use it at night, and it's been slow each time. Probably been slow since at least Friday night of last week.

Just wanted to let you know it's still very slow for me from time to time. Sometimes it's normal, sometimes it's slow...mostly it's slower than normal though.

Today around 1:45 it was pretty slow for a little bit for me...

We are still trying to diagnose what's going on because from our end we only see occassional not regular slowness.

Some slowness is normal and we want to make sure what's going on.

Question - Does the slowness you encounter happen when you read individual threads. Or is the slowness related to posting replies, searching (using the search feature) for keywords etc.

Thanks all

The slowest is when you hit the "Submit reply" button. It can take a minute or two for the reply to show up. The reply is posted as far as other people see it, but you still see the "reply to thread" screen. People keep hitting the button while they wait which is why there are so many multiple posts these days.

Otherwise it's slow getting to the "reply to thread screen", but not as slow as submitting the reply..

At least that is how it happens to me.

yeah. those are the slowest for me too. Reply to and submit. THen the next slowest is just loading the forums. I don't use the search options, so I don't know if they are slow.

Once a page is loaded it's fine, but I get a white/blank screen a lot when the page is trying to load (for reply, submit, or just viewing messages).

We have been tinkering - Is it any better this week?

and is the problem on a hi speed or dial up connection?

It seems better this week. We have high speed.

February 11th, 2006, 07:15 PM
I haven't really noticed a change yet... I have high speed too.

My posts have been loading without double posting.

ooo now it's getting faster! Woohoo! Now I can get my posting average above 25/day again. (heh heh, not now though. Maybe when I feel better).
