    The forum is extremely sluggish for me at the moment.
    Whereas I don't have this problem with other sites I visit.
    So, for me it seems a forum specific problem.

    What are your experiences at the moment ?

    Here too, sometimes, it just won't load at all for a minute or two.

    The forum's been sluggish for the past 3 or 4 months for me. I thought it was my ISP at first but it's the same at my parents and at work.

    It tends to be slow or simply not load at times, but it's not all the time at least...

    Anyway, TF can't do anything but report it to Telefragged, or get another website host (that would be a lot of trouble and maybe expensive too).

    High traffic, probably.

    This has been my experience, as well. For the past several months, the forum will intermittently slow down to a crawl. :dunno:

    Same here. I dunno why. In spurts too, and not on database backup nights. It's weird.

    Telefragged told me some major router died yesterday...

    Other than that, the "normal" hours for the forum to be slow are early morning hours (EST) when forum performs scheduled tasks, and when we do forum backup Tuesday night.

    At 8:50AM (EST) this morning I had another one of those minute-long timeouts trying to access any part of the CFC forums, similar to the ones I've noticed over the past couple months. They don't seem to be time-of-day dependent.

    I've been getting those as well, often once or twice per day, no difference if i am at home/work (i was ruling out my ISP with that).

    Just had one, edit time of this post minus 1-2 min.

    It seems to be more unreliable this year.
