Lately the forums have been moving really slowly for me. Whenever I try to post a reply or new thread, the portion where I would write my comment takes forever to show up. It didnt used to do this. My browser is Safari.

Try deleting your cookies/temp internet files, that sometimes slows stuff down.

But, its not like there are alot of people on anymore. The post count is dropping so can we be killing the bandwith??

Yep, I've had the same problem, everything to do with the forums loads INCREDIBLY slowly. I check back now and again to see if it works, and it hasn't worked for over 3 weeks..

well, then, maybe that explains the decline in posts..;)

Same here to be honest. I just presumed it was my connection, but seeing as its a common problem, then maybe not! :confused:

Why the f**k did Buckling close the other forum topic and link it here?

They are two totally different topics!!

One is about the browser speed of forum and the other is about the lack of people and posters!

Can I ask a mod who actually reads the topics to open up the other one, as what is the point of a forum when threads get closed for no apparent reason!!!!!!!! :mad::mad::mad::mad:

Ass did it to me again. Somebody else in a different thread said that he seems to 'pick on particular peoples threads and posts. He's too immature to have that responsibilty:mad:

Maybe he's part of the reason why the postings are dropping. People are getting tired of being messed with....

Cheers Timid. Maybe I should have been a tad clearer but I was in a rant at the time. I think to be honest, it's about time something was done.

Agreed ..... DEFINITELY!!!!!:bow: !!!!

AND yes, we know we're off topic here, but you can thank Bucking (The Super Mod) for that.

I have put a complaint into Routine, hopefully he'll take note of the problems thats are being caused.

Back on topic. Still, the website remains slow. I'm not sure why. Hopefully Routine can throw some light on it.

ALSO --> any mod who is around, can they re-open this thread as it was closed in a moment of complete ignorance. I noticed GT was on ;) Hint hint.

Everyone that is having problems with loading, is your pc on a network? I remember about a week ago it took ages to load the forums on a dsl connection networked with about 40 or more computers. Any other site loaded within seconds.

Well, I work in a hospital. I know they are networked, but I seriously doubt they use DSL. I'm having the same problem with my home copmuters and this site as well, they're not on DSL either. It does seem weird that some are having problems while others are not. Check it... right now I'm 2 floors down (at work) from my normal computer and, on this one, everything loads just fine. But, on mine, upstairs, it loads this site s-l-o-w!! Same deal at home...s-l-o-w.

Side note:

ALSO --> any mod who is around, can they re-open this thread

the thread was reopened by Buckling (The Super Mod) himself and he deleted his posting there

Well I appreciate it. Thanks. But I do know his post is gone.

On topic: At least now there's an admin that's experiencing the slow down as well;)

Trust me, we've had plenty...;)

ON TOPIC:

Here's what I use and I have found one of the main reasons why some expeierence this lag. I use Firefox on the "Black and Gold" template.

Yet, if I we're to change either of those say to IE and use the "XBox360" template, I get INSANELY long load times. I'm assuming it's mainly the teplate.

It was the server. Someone tried to DDoS it (another site on the same server, not ours).

We've upgraded the server and everything should be back to normal now.

It also seems that the leaderboards are getting updated as they should now. At least every script is now returning "success" messages when updating.
