Site slow?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Is it just me or does this site load realllllllll slow?

I don't have problems on other sites. But sometimes it takes forever for me to bring up a thread here .
So slow sometimes I won't let it load all the way. I really like this site, but I tend not to reply on some threads because it comes up slow.

Sometimes it loads pretty fast, but most of the time it don't?

I have high speed too. Whats weird is sometimes it will load up fast, then it starts to load real slow. Most of the time the first ones I click on loads up fast. But after a while it slows down to worse than dial up.

The site in general loads up fast most of the time, it's the threads once I'm on here that is slow.

This is exactly the way it is for me too: the first thread I click on to read takes forEVER to open but then things usually pick up a bit.

Sometimes answering can be really slow too.

It's the same for me.
The first thread I click on takes a really long time to load then after that everything is fine.

I am having the same problem, and I even did a recovery and it didn't help. Mine also takes a very long time to post what I just wrote..I too have DSL connection and this is the only site I have been having problems with for about the last month. Recently it got so bad that I couldn't even post without it kicking me off the net...

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I am not aware of any specific reason for this. As far as I know, the server should be working just fine (and it's loading finr for me today). We are actually about to move servers, hopefully on Thursday. Hopefully our new and improved machine will solve these issues for those that experience it

Now that you mention it, today it is really slow. Usually for me it's slower in the morning, I am in Washington state and I just figured it was due to high volume etc.
It gets faster later in the day, but I'd say for the past couple days it's been slower all day.

I don't know.....I'm not convinced it's a server problem. Are all you other guys with loading slow problems also using Internet Explorer 6.0? I have the problem only with IE, but when I use Firefox, the pages load and render just fine.

I'm using IE 7.0. Lately, I've been having the same problems that others have mentioned. It's not all of the time, but sometimes I can't hardly get it to load any thread. This problem just started for me about a week ago. I'm, also, using high speed (DSL).

Ya, but IE 7.0 probably has the same problem as IE 6.0 if it's a client-side glitch. I can't see any other reason that Firefox works and IE doesn't. Firefox loads the page and it renders almost immediately. IE sits there with "Done" showing on the status line and a white screen for a long time. There's got to be something on the page that IE is choking on and Firefox isn't.

That's not what mine does.
The very first time I come on the site in the morning and click on the first thread I want to read it doesn't leave the main forum page it sits there for a few seconds...on the main page...and then the thread I want to read pops up.
I never get the white page.
It's ONLY the first post I try to read and only the very first time I come on in the morning.
After that everything loads and works just fine.

I usually enter the forum directly into a subscribed thread via a link in an email notification. Just now I tried entering via the main index page and it popped right up, so maybe Graciecat's on to something there.
post #14 of 18
My e-mail notifications work fine, there's no delay there.
It's just the first time I come to the main forum page to read any new threads.
It's the first new thread from the main site page that takes a while to come up.

It is different for me, it hangs on random pages, whether I enter through an email link or a bookmark or the main page and I use firefox

Curiouser and curiouser ... that's for sure!!

It does change depending on how busy the site is, I find it is much quicker when I am on earlier with only 20 or so others including guests than during the day when there might be 200 people on including guests.

That's like with mine! It's random, but I do get the white page sometimes that was mentioned before, also.
