Has anybody else been having problems with response time?
It seems to be intermittent. But happening more frequently lately.

Are you commenting on the time it takes for pages to load? If so, yes - I have noticed a slow down at times too. Granted, Safari is slower all around than Firefox, but even with FF, certain times of the day seem to bog down a bit.

I have been meaning to check the clock when I experience it, just to see if it's North America waking up or the UK's lunch hour - that type of thing. Guess what... Yeah, I'm easily distracted by the shiny "submit" button instead.

Just had to try out the new edit feature in someone else's forum... It's slick!

Just to check, have you been noticing this since the redesign or just over the last few days?? Peter actually did some work last week which should have helped speed up some things!

I'm having real trouble since the redesign - any time I try to go through to another page I get a security message popping up telling me there are unsecure items - am I sure I want to proceed.

This is happening every single time I try to click through to another page and also when I enter the site.

I hadn't noticed any slow downs personally, but then I tend to be online when the traffic is at its lowest, so that isn't necessarily surprising. Bandwidth usage has gone up by a couple of GBs a day since the redesign though, so it may be possible that it is affecting speeds.

kerryd, are you accessing the site using https ? If so, then yes, there will be items that are insecure - the google ads cause this problem afaik. We haven't really structured the site to use the secure https protocol, hence have spent no time trying to fix this at all. Anyway, even if 'some elements' are non-secure and you are using https, then you should rest assured that your password is being 128bit encrypted when you log in - certainly a massive step up from using the regular http protocol. I assume this is what you are referring to, otherwise I would have no idea how you got that error message. Either way, I think this is a separate issue to what MerB is noticing.

The response time issue seems to have been the past two or three days as far as I can tell. I would not know what slow or fast times for the internet on your side may be, but I do go on at various times. I use IE and have ADSL line.

Oddly enough, the pattern as far as I can tell, is it doesn't seem to like you "revisiting" a page. I.e. if I click on the OffTopic forum, then visit the General forum, then go back to the OffTopic forum, it doesn't seem to like it. Odd...? (Otherwise it could just be after you are on a certain number of minutes, and that 'pattern' is just coincidence?)
But it really is so slow sometimes (occasionally) that it is in effect refusing to load.

Hey Peter!

There was an obvious slow down between 3:05 and 3:20 (Central Daylight Time) this afternoon. It was taking anywhere form 45-60 seconds to load a page. It lasted for that 15 minute period and then returned to normal. Just thought I'd mention it. ;)

Thanks for noting the time Isa, that should prove to be useful information. It is likely to be some slow running process causing these delays, so knowing when it happens is kind of crucial.
