What\'s with the Slow Forums?
I'm starting to get mightily annoyed with the way the forums have been performing recently. Half the bloody time it's a major struggle to even load the forum pages, and every time you attempt to load a thread, login, post or whatever it takes a minimum of five minutes for any requests to get through and processed, and that's often only after several timeouts.

These connection problems come in waves, sometimes right in the middle of normal functioning things become slow as molasses without any explanation and the connection can completely disappear for up to half an hour.

Needless to say, this is a major pain in the arse, and the issue does not occur with any other sites I visit, so the problem is definitely on or very near the Shrapnelgames end. I hope something is done to identify and fix this problem, because the community here is a great resource, but most people simply do not have time for the kind of delays that have been happening.

I'm experiencing this also, but only in the morning hours of the weekends(European time). Maybe the forum go for maintenance in these hours because North American area is in the middle of the night.

Re: What\'s with the Slow Forums?
FJ_MD is right. We perform backups on Sunday early morning Eastern Time, it is when we have the least amount of traffic on the board. We realize this may cause slow down issues for those who are on the board, but there is no time when it would be ideal for everyone so we try to do the maintenance when it will affect the least amount of people.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 05:05 PM.
