Anyone else noticed the site has been really slow the last few days? It can take up to several minutes to open one thread. It is really slow when Iím writing this for instance. The last 3 days I think it is the site has been slow around this time.

I've noticed this as well. For me, the worst lag time is early in the morning(starting at Midnight PST). Even now I'm being affected.

Is Mr. Routine doing some construction?

I have noticed it to. It's really bad today. It always seems to be this time of the morning.

Everything is perfectly fine for me. I rarely get slow downs. Once in a while I did but I haven't that much as of late. Maybe it's because everyone is on at the same time?

Usually everything is fine, the odd refusal to load a screen pops up but all is peachy. If it keeps lagging regularly at the same time then maybe there is just a lot of e-traffic on the site slowing everything down.

It's better now. It just seems to be early morning (here anyways) that it acts up. It could be Routine do some work.

It's a bug that I'm trying to sort out =/ At first I thought it was too much users/load, but it was always at the same time (in the morning over here) and the server wasn't showing any signs that it was struggling.

I finally found out what it was, and apparently there is a webserver bug when the logfile on the server is over 2GB, and with the rapid increase of users and stuff implemented like the gamercards, we're passing that limit every day. When the logfile is processed (for site stats) and deleted, the webserver is back to normal again.

I'm looking into logfile rotation or perhaps generating the stats more often so it won't happen again =)

Don't be fooled, it's the GBs of images Minty's uploading for his Jade calendar (coming soon for just 799.99 MS points).

Eeeh, a little bit. It's still running OK for me. There's definitely room for improvement here though.
