    Smile website problems suddenly started yesterday

    I have had no problems since the changes made to the website until yesterday. All of a sudden I am unable to do certain functions. I cannot post to the forum news and announcments board. I cannot delete my post to the scents wanted in the market place and I cannot leave comments when leaving feedback because the box for comments is only 3 to 4 Millimeters wide. The whole thing is bizarre. I am not really sure what to do about it if anything can be done. A message comes up saying I do not have access to the pages I have tried to enter . I am a supporter and have been for more than one year. Must be a glitch or something.

    It seems a little slower than usual. Other sites are normal on my computer.

    Same here. Only I would call it a lot slower. Nothing wrong in the morning (Europe), but by the time the USA wakes up, everything works like a 'slow boat to China'.
    And indeed: all my other sites are normal.

    I am having problems reading posts today - it takes a few minutes to load anything. I checked - all my other sites are normal - and I have a high speed connection.

    I think I see the reason - spammer attack. That will slow any site down.

    Going from bad to worse here at the moment. In 'our' European morning I usually had no problems, but now I have to wait abnormally long to post or visit a thread.

    It is very slow in Ohio as well - seems like a problem with the host server - bandwidth?

    Very slow again this evening, but as of right now it's better.

    I don't think anyone is reading our posts about it anyway. :P

    Every evening (Melbourne, Australia time) around 4:00pm i experience difficulty in accessing the website. It just refuses to load unless you key in the url and leave it untouched for 3 minutes. Obviously i don't have that much patience. Every other website is fine and loads within 3-4 seconds.

    Earlier i thought it was just a temporary situation but then it would happen everyday. Then i thought maybe it was due to the overactive US basenoters :-) that there was excessive load on the website during these hours, but i remember the board being down for almost 5 weeks and the website was hosted on new servers.
    I assume the administrators are obviously aware of the load (both existing and expected) and therefore moved to the new servers that could cater to the needs of the growing number of basenoters.

    It would be great if someone from the management jumped in and let us know why this is happening.

    When I logged on that day there were a number of spam bot generated threads here on BN. I was busy cleaning up spam - close to 150 posts, on another net forum I moderate. If a site gets hit with enough of these things it can bog everything down

    Thanks for the info, Dee. Must say that my private mailaddress is also hit by more spam than usual.
    Let's hope it is just a temporarily nuisance

    Its mainly a server load issue (coupled with the fact that our visitors double in December). The servers we have should be adequate but the main sites code isn't efficient enough.

    Same here.
