Maybe it's just me, but every time I change screens or refresh I have to wait ages while it says "waiting for"

Doesn't seem to take as long usually? I'm not having delays with any other site. Is anyone else finding it slow?

Is it still slow for you today, theyoungvisiter?

If it is, could you let us know which ad it is that's being so slow to load - once we know, we'll see if we can do something about it.

No, it seems to be fine today. Thanks for asking though.

I found it slow last night too, and gave up on it in the end.
Fine today

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAH it's slow again.

It doesn't seem to be any ad in particular - I've had slow loads on the Crave maternity ad, and the legoland ad, but then other times the same ad has flashed up quickly.

It's taking like 10 seconds, just sitting there displaying "waiting for" which doesn't sound a lot, but normally it just flashes up without any wait at all.

goodness me it is indeed very very sloooooooooooooow tonight.

I timed it, and to post that previous message took 22 seconds, of which 19 seconds was spent looking at "waiting for".

It's not normally this slow and the other sites I'm on seem fine, plus the threads themselves are loading fine - I'm not having any trouble loading big threads or anything like that, it's just the ads.

x-posted Eccentrica - well, I'm glad to know it's not just me. I was starting to think it might be my brain slowing down grin

Hmm, we haven't noticed it being slow this end.

Any idea which ads were taking a while to load?

theyoungvisiter Wed 07-Oct-09 10:32:21

It seems alright again today - seems to be a late night/evening thing.

I'm not 100% sure which ads - I noticed very slow loads before both the Crave Maternity ad, the Legoland ad and the Which Wills ad (like a 10-20 second wait) but then other times the same ads seemed ok.

And today they are all loading alright.

V annoying and mysterious!

OK, thanks - that's v helpful.

Will pop into Shed and see if Techs have anything searingly insightful to say.

Stand back, searing insight coming through.....

It's the old chestnut: it's slow because it's busy! Hmm, okay, not so searing.

However, the good news is that we've some more hardware on order and that will speed things up. We don't have an exact date yet, but it should be within the next couple of weeks or so. The beauty of having to wait a couple of weeks is it will give you all a chance to figure out what you're going to do whilst the site is down during the migration.

Arrrrrrg! [covers eyes to protect from searing brightness of insight]

I guess that makes sense grin I blame the Mail

I'm sure all the traffic is thanks to the constant witty banter. Note to other posters: please try to be more boring and drive away newbies.

yes v v slow this evening and it hardly ever is like this for me, only very occasionally but never this bad.

Looking forward to the new hardware!
