Slow forum loading

Postby Flumble » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:22 pm UTC

All pages take some 5-10 seconds to load for me. Weirdly enough a subsequent request immediately after (like an uncached avatar) takes less than a second. [edit]posting this took somewhere upward of 30 seconds[/edit]

Quoting as per request:

Not worth discussing here, but you can quote this (if you are getting it too!) if you're seeing it too and want to report it in the Site Issues area.)

Unlike soupspoon I haven't gotten error messages yet, but I did get logged out today.

[edit the second]right now (2 hours after posting) browsing is working fine for me, posting takes a couple of seconds

I have also been experiencing a lot of site slowness lately.

It seems to be on and off - sometimes it all seems normal, then sometimes posts take about a minute to post.

There also seems to be an unbelievable number of "guests" at times of worst disruption. Is this what a denial of service attack looks like?
