I've noticed no appreciable difference in the speed of this site as compared to the Internet as a whole. I use the Internet for a few hours a day for a variety of tasks and it's been sluggish for the past year - even before the Covid pandemic. It's remarkable to me that there haven't been significant crashes of entire regions of the Internet. This technology is just incredibly complex!

Definitely been a problem over the past week, sometimes taking 20 seconds for a page to load. Slightly better this morning.
I have high speed fibre connection and all my other sites are fine.

I've cleared the forum cache again, but the forum, due to having a lot of add-ons over the years does get sluggish from time to time.  I'm waiting for a new upgrade from Simple Machines which has been under test for many months.  Then, an expensive upgrade!

Eyup, the forum is suddenly taking ages to refresh, and it has already timed out on me once. Is anyone else experiencing this, or do I just need to talk nicely to my laptop?

Cheers,

Chris

Little slow working off a phone but patience required. Wondering here if people working off home, children, students etc being home, sheer volume of traffic on masts etc
 Just happy being patient

Just wanted to acknowledge that the performance of the Forum has been significantly improved over the last week or so.

Thank you to those involved in fixing it.

Forum has high demand and canít show unread posts. Had this several times, also couldnít open a post. Then it picked up. This was around 15:00, if there any server logs.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.
