Forum has been slow as hell for me for the past few days, it does have times where it runs great, and that's wonderful, but the slow times are doing my head in now. Speaking in the box the other day, it isn't just me experiencing it either. I did mention it in the 'Stuff That Should Be Changed' thread, but it has been ignored, so I decided I'd make a thread about it.

Not noticed before but everything does seem to be running a little bit slower this evening

Probably slightly slower this evening as it's busy.. I'll run it by TB, but to be honest I haven't experienced anything other than normality.

The Shoutbox for me is the slowest. Taking forever to send out my shouts! However the forum itself isn't as bad, still could be better mind. That's probably just because I have good internet though.

Shoutbox has always been pretty piss poor for me compared to performance of the rest of the forum. We aren't prepared to increase server costs even higher simply for performance of what we see as an optional extra.

However, if the overall forum speed remains an issue we will look into it further. If we can get some honest feedback on performance over the next 3-4 days we can then look into whether we are due an upgrade. I'll also have a look in the backend in the meantime to see if we are missing any optimisation opportunities.

The site speed is ok with me, I never use the shoutbox option but out of interest I just tried it and it opened instantly, BB is 30mbps.

Just loading a page is taking 4-5 seconds on my phone.

Internet is fine so it's not that. Porn loads almost instantaneously.

Lol imagine complaining about 4-5 seconds.

Been painfully slow for me since Thursday really

This. And not only when using shoutbox, but yes shoutbox is noticeably slower than the rest of the site, no problems with the optional extra view though.

It has its moments when it is fine, but then it's slow as dog shit for 15-20 minutes every now and again..

Still having issues with the site in general, I've barely even been in the shoutbox recently, so I'm definitely not referring to that now.

Not sure about others, mind you. May just be Sky being spiteful fuckers because I've left them.

Slow here too. I see yesterday broke a new record for most users online, and that record has been broken again right now too.

More users than the current server can comfortably handle?

Yeah I noticed that, the user record was about 450 until 3 or so weeks ago, seems to have gone a little bit mental in the last couple of days. Not sure whether it's the end of the season and more people making searches for websites to use, or whether something has gone a little AWOL in the spam filters. Either way, it's positive and I'm inclined to believe it's the 1st bit, not the 2nd as sign ups are rolling in over the last few days.

Progression.

We're aware of ongoing issues with server crashes and slow response times, as a result we've disabled a few features of the forum temporarily such as the users online list on the forums homepage. We're currently in discussions with the host to try and minimise these issues and we also plan to move to a larger hosting setup after Euro 2016.

If you disable G-Dragons account I'm pretty sure the site will run smoother.
