View Full Version : Very long page load/refresh times

08-29-2014, 03:15 PM
I am curious if the site is undergoing some changes or something. After the '502 bad gateway' problem the other week I have been experiencing really long page load/refresh times. It took me about 6-8 minutes to login and get to the forums just to post this question.

I have been having similar issues. Although things have been a little quicker today.

A lot of people online at the same time.
Right now, we are 538 on the site, but only 5 of us are members (connected). That's roughly 1 %.
The 99% includes other unconnected members, visitors and other people/machine.

Whatever the cause, the guild currently is snail No. 1 among the websites that I use.

I also have the same problem. I get "Page not Found" about 50% of the pages I load here. I've found when it happens, if I wait 10 minutes, it clears up, but then after about 3 or 4 pages, it starts again.

Well, after a bit of time I can say that isn't regular and consistent. Last few days have been much better with load/refresh times.
What can you do.

Not for me. It took me seven tries and over 20 minutes to get here to say that it's still slow.

Its often slow for me but today / tonight its not too bad from here. Maybe you can try a web proxy to get the pages which would take you through a different set of routers and probably bypass the issue your having. If you dont know about them then google for "web proxy".

EDIT: probably not related in this particular case but note that today/tomorrow is net neutrality slow down day.
