Is the server jacked up lately?

I haven't had problems on other sites, but have had a lot of problems loading threads lately, maybe the past week or so. It just loads and loads... if I hit stop and then refresh several times in a row, the thread will pop up eventually. But if I just wait, it seems to hang up until it times out. Not all the time, but more often than not.

I have fewer problems with the main forum pages, until I click on a thread. Then it goes into suckiness.

As I type this, things are actually running smoothly. But it's been terrible the past several days, including a half hour ago or so.

I have that similar problem too. When I click on a thread it loads and loads just hanging, until I hit refresh then the topic opens. It doesn't happen on every thread I click. Some open without me hitting refresh.

It's been like that for a little over a month now.

So far it seems quick today. I think it was mgbfan's long thread slowing things down.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

Forum speed is good, but the issue is still there for me. At random times clicking on a topic it won't load and hangs, then hitting refresh the topic finally opens up.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

Yeah I've had it for about a week or week and a half now. Especially when Quick Replying. I will post and nothing happens... I have to copy out what I typed, reload the page (sometimes even relaunch the browser) and then paste it in.

(Had to do it to make this post)

It's been happening for a little while now. I have trouble accessing it at night 11 pm - 1 am EST and I can't imagine that's a high volume time for visitors.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

Happens to me on a PC with Firefox 10, and on my Mac with firefox. I thought I've seen it on Safari as well but I'll switch to IE on my pc and safari on the mac to see if I notice it there. So far I can only confirm Firefox on both systems.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

I get this problem a lot at home, but never at work. I wonder if it is a routing problem.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

I've been getting this quite often lately on Firefox 10 on a PC. Takes a long time to load. Sometimes it times out, other times it just takes forever.

This has been happening to me for a week or so. Multiple PCs, updated versions of IE and FF.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

I've seen no problems here.

If you have Safari handy, you could watch the activity window to see if it's an ad server that's holding things up. (Not sure what the equivalent window would be in other browsers or it exists).

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

It was really bad last night and this morning. I've had to stop and reload three or four times to see a thread. The hold-up seems to be the advertisements at the top of the page. Sometimes I get the banner, but not the ads, and then it stops.

Chrome 17.0.963.56 m

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

It was absolutely horrible for me for about 12 days, then has been perfect for about a week now. I did nothing different and changed no settings.

Yes, the forums are unusable with Opera for me.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

I spoke too soon. Things are crappy again today. I'll probably have to resend/refresh this 5 times to get it to post.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

It has been a little temperamental for me. Not horrible but I just need to give it a few extra seconds for the page to load.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

Loading is pretty sporadic for me, but that's nothing new. This site is easily the most temperamental of all the ones I visit. There was another thread for that a while back.

Re: Is the server jacked up lately?

It's been giving me busy signals a lot the past few weeks. Or not loading at all.
