    Honestly I'm getting about the same speed I always did, except I'm not getting "server busy" messages.

    When you factor those things in it's probably working even faster than before. :P

    One reason could be that threads are loading up 3x as many posts per page as they used to (60 posts instead of 20), at least for me. Was that to give us the impression that the combined SotD thread isn't so long to page through now?

    Right from the time I registered I've set my default thread cut-off at 100 posts per page... so I don't think that's the problem, well atleast I'm not getting the "Server is too busy" message.. so the wait as the threads load is worth it

    I am getting slow loading as well as frequent "Database Error" results. It seems like the database may be becoming very unperformant, perhaps the indexes need to be rebuilt or other performance maintenance tasks need to be carried out. I wonder what DB technology BN uses for a back end?

    Yeah, for me too I'm afraid, here in the sunny West Midlands. Or at least it has been on and off, at any rate. Sometimes it can take 3-4 minutes to even start to open a page and - just now - we got there in ten seconds. But I do love this place, so I persevere!

    We've had a lot more visitors lately, and the database was getting overloaded. My hosts have done something, and yesterday we only got 16 database connection errors, compared to the 849 we had the day before! I'm working on something longer term though

    I'm finding the exact opposite- my PC browsing is much slower than usual, but my mobile browsing is as fast as ever.

    edit. When I think about it, the PC browsing is slow for me in patches. It comes and goes. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow.

    Same as FrouFrou, I've been almost totally unable to access BN for a couple of days (but weirdly with rare intermittent moments of access followed by "server unavailable" messages again). The bits I can access again are loading faster than before, which is great. But I can't access any scent database pages at all.

    It is much faster, but I can't access the fragrance database at all. Not complaining, just letting you know.

    edit: and now that I just posted that I can access the fragrance database but not my own wardrobe, so it seems to me you are working on it. Thank you for all your hard work, I know that maintaining a large forum/database like this one is no easy task.

    Thanks for working on the issues, and all the replies to this post just go to show how dependent we all are on your incredible hard work! Cheers guys, and hope it's all running smoothly again soon. xxx

    Hm, I was wondering already why I don't get email notifications for new postings in my subscribed threads anymore. Turns out that the new Basenotes-server is on a 'global AntiSpam list' because it's known to be configured as an open relay (according to GMX.net). It would be great if somebody could look into it sometime.
