    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

    It takes at least two minutes for any page to load for me...sometimes it doesn't work at all.

    Thanks Grant.

    Turns out it was a local issue. I worked out that there's a glitch with our UK ad people, and I've switched their ads off.

    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?

    Slow and I'm on a 32mb line. I.e: pretty fast.

    Not sure why a 3 year old thread was resurrected but ...

    There is a thread over in the Community Centre forum with the same complaints. Grant IS aware of the problems.

    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

    Pages have loaded considerably faster today, but not as fast as I remember it to be.

    I'm finding the PC browsing much better but mobile browsing is painfully slow. Is anyone else having this issue? Not sure if it's BN or my phone. Other sites seem ok 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.

    It's ridiculously slow for me on a PC in a US IP range. Using firefox. Tried with IE and same result.
