Sorry to make a whole thread of it, but is it only for me or are the forums painfully slow atm (and for about the last 2 hours).?

Nope, speed's fine here. :confused:

Are any other sites loading slowly for you or is it just this one?

Hi Geck :wve:

Seems to be just this one :confused: .
But not to worry, it's nothing I can't cope with (at least for the moment :p ).

I had the same problem last week. TRF was really slow for me but no other websites were. It's fine this week though.

I'm using IE and there were about 90something users online at the time.
It seems to be back to normal now, so I'll keep my fingers crossed (even though that slows my typing down ;) ).

Yeah mines normal now too Gabi.
It just took ages to load certain areas of the forums earlier, Not sure why.

The forums haven't been slow for me, but recently I've found that every five minutes or so the forums will not load up, and I have to click onto another site and wait a few monents before it lets me reconnect. Why is a mystery.....

Gabi - You could be experiencing minor slow downs because of your ISP and not this forum. If there are many customers of your ISP online at the same time (peak hours) the servers will be overloaded and therefore slower. Every request your computer makes (asks for a site) goes through your ISP's server and then that same server (after it gets the site you requested) sends it to you. The more people are online at the same time the more requests an ISP's server will have to handle which will make it slower.

Nothing to worry about unless that becomes a habbit.

All other sites (= requests) worked at "normal" speed though.

That happened to me as well.

It's a bit slow for me too, but I do not worry because my server is in Netherlands and I'm in Greece.
So I think it's acceptable to have some a connection from time to time.

But today I haven't noticed that.

Edit:Aww man, now it's slow. Very:(
