sometimes its slow pwhirl, but dont leave.

I think the 5000 odd members may cause a little of the loading, plus tlr is always upgrading and updating the site for us, so its a little slo for that too...

bare with us mate... ( - i know i will - )

I think TLR, has stated his intention to keep on using UBB...

To my knowledge the server and its connection are what is slow...

The forums have been fairly slow over the last few days -- more so than usual, I mean. It could be due to the new upgrade not working perfectly, or the site in general getting a lot of visitors from Yahoo's recommendation. The forums are not usually this slow even with 40 or 50 people visiting at once.

Hey guys, lets face it, we are soooo popular on this site and I know the right time of day that it goes fast and never have a prob. Popularity always crowds the lines, LAN or WAN

Exclamation

Indeed. We have a dedicated line feeding three web servers. During peak times, the line becomes saturated and page-load speed is effected. We're not GameSpot, nor IGN, and it's an expensive business delivering content to 20,000 + visitors daily. Rather than start charging for content (as so many other gaming sites have done) we're investigating numerous options which will allow us to invest in a larger line. All we can do is ask for your continued support and understanding.
