At first I thought it was just me, but a fellow user (who may choose to reveal himself/herself or not) has also been having the same issues. Of late, when traveling around the forums, the loading time for each section/thread/page/etc. has been slower than normal.

Any reason why? Expected time for this to continue?

... Then always a pps, PJ or others, if you're on a 56 kb dialup modem, that is of course gonna be your bottleneck: There's no point in throwing the latest ultra-machine against it, or not for your online affairs, anyway.

Anyway and other than that, I thought it was the forum pages being reportedly slower that was under discussion. Games will be a whole different ballgame; these forum pages are mostly textual at my end, even disabling any ad blockers and stuff I have up, though ads may still get blocked by some other of my settings. I see none here, no matter what I do. (So are there any, in these forums? Never have seen them, indeed. On the gaming pages, sure.)

Anyways: She does seem to be currently going steady, so full speed ahead, for as long as it lasts

I appreciated that maintenance notification being up on the forums yesterday btw, I'm sure many would have.

So -- thanks

The Forums page itself is nonresponsive again, though I can access individual forums as well as threads and profiles just fine.

I never saw such a notification.

I saw that notification page too.

Actual the forums page takes a while to load, the rest (profiles/fav games/games itself) load pretty well and in normal time shape.

That's not the only problem. Often, an old message reappears on my page and newer ones disappear.

This seems to be working fine for me, is anybody still having issues?

It's always hard to tell, isn't it. I don't usually like to report every time there's a hitch.

Seems currently steady. I'm pretty sure though I've still noticed the usual lags and stalls since my last report. Minus that welcome maintenance notification, too.

I guess it'll be easier to say anything sensible on in say a week or so, if like you seem to indicate something substantial has been fixed.

And PJ,

Hmm, Pentium 4, eh. I guess that should still be capable of something. Any other specs? Your connection speed? That standard 512 Mb RAM of yore really won't see you very far these days, if that's what you have. Find a friendly second-hand seller to tell you whether it's worth boosting it some, or rather getting yourself a slightly newer old box while you're at it.

... Well, so sure enough, just posting the above the whole site is back to giving blank pages.

Obviously fixed again for now. But hard to make any sensible comment on it, indeed.

Works fine for me on Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Glad to hear it. We've been doing database updates and whatnot, so some wonkiness is expected. Thanks for letting us know when there are issues though.

Can't reach main forum page in Chrome or IE. Got here from history link. Everything else on the site seems fine.
