    Default Slow forum?

    Everything I try to open on the forum seems to be talking forever. It does not happen with any other website so can not see an reason why it would be my end

    Now that's what I call lag!

    It's so slow right now; it's timing out constantly.

    Yes, the Forums are very slow right now, Ozz.

    Here too.

    Out of morbid curiosity, I timed it - just over 30 seconds to open this thread, same to open the "reply" window.

    Okay, good(?)... it's not just me.

    Very slow day.

    I was really hoping the day would come where game server performance would match forum performance.This is not what I had in mind.

    Yes, using the forums has been agonizing today!

    Pushing a minute to open a thread (last two timed at 40 and 43 seconds) ... replies are quicker though. This on a 100 Meg connection FYI.

    I timed posting this reply. 19 seconds between clicking the Save button and it appearing.

    They're adding forum past lives; every 100 posts you can reincarnate. The slowdown is to increase the grind and time in-between...

    Still a bit slower than usual - but worlds better than earlier.

    I was noticing a lot of latency earlier today playing too… so maybe they were having trouble with their ISP or something

    This may not be your issue, but it did seem to speed up my forum loading time dramatically.

    WIN 10 will sometimes change the power settings when it updates.

    How to get to power management in Windows 10?
    Here is what you should do to find them:

    Click on the Windows logo icon available on your taskbar.
    Locate the Control Panel tile and click on it.
    Go to Hardware and Sound and click it.
    Select Power Options.
    Navigate to Change plan settings.
    Locate and click Change Advanced Power Settings.

    Firefox sometimes needs a kick as well.

    (Hit the clicky or follow the directions to open the option in the comp yourself. It took about 10 minutes on my computer but it's the first time I ever used that refresh function. Everything seems to have survived. I trust FF more than MS, certainly.)
    Sometimes I'm too clever for my own good. Bear in mind I'm probably trying to be humorous. Like dodge, it's hit or miss.// Looking for a guild on Orien? Send a tell to Magnifique to join the "Fidelic Brotherhood".

    This forum has always been the slowest of all the webpages I go to, slow to load, also the weirdest thing is i cant overwrite and click on the next link, need for it to finish loading before I can load the next page...

    While we are on the subject of forum issues, this forum looks different and weird when I come here in chrome. It's in blue and white and it says "Bullein" at the top. Never been able to figure out what that is about.

    In any case, the forums were slow for me yesterday but seem ok today.

    Yesterday evening, central european time, I could not access the forum at all.

    Mobile version. You have to click "Full Site" at the bottom of the page. This has happened to me every once in a while for over a year on Chrome as well. I still can't figure out why.

    Oh, wow ok. Thanks, I'll look for that.
