Forums Slow Loading Lately?

Anyone else notice the forums either being down or slow the last 3-5 days or so randomly?

I thought it was an issue on my end, glad it's not just me.

I have only noticed it today, probably in the past 6 hours or so.

I've noticed it for a couple weeks now, particularly loading Video Game Talk.

It coincided with my upgrade to Firefox 4, had thought it was something screwy with my browser add-ons or something.

Hi all. We are in fact still having overall network issues related to server attacks. We are working hard to get the site back up to speed; I will post when I have updates, but thanks for your patience in the meantime.

Server attacks? Are us users at any kind of risk?

It's more likely it's a DDOS attack, and likely not directed at DVD Talk, but one of the other sites which IB runs/owns that is simply on the same network as DVD Talk.

No users are at risk. This is in fact a DDOS attack spamming us and causing widespread and sporadic outages only.

Should be ok today, but we never know when this is going to pop up again.

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

This happens all the time here now it seems. I'll open 5 or 6 threads in separate tabs and inevitably 1 or 2 won't load until I refresh. It's pretty annoying.

Happening a lot for me half of the threads i click on load continually forever. I came back after 3 hours one time and one was still trying to load. It's getting pretty annoying.

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

Seems to be running better now.

EDIT: Now that I think of it, the new Firefox update might have slowed it a little too.
