    I have used gbatemp for a pretty long time, and it was always pretty fast. However, in the last month-ish, it seems to go a lot slower. I have trouble checking the releases in the forums without spending more than 20 minutes in it. Is something new? Will this be fixed?
    (I know I joined recently but i was using these forums and the reviews for a long time before i signed up)

    I believe there was something wrong with some router(s?) over at the server place, but I'm not sure about it. It _should_ be fixed soon enough.

    The server was moved, and at the same time the server provider was experiencing issues. Theres even a front page story about it where people are moaning about the speed and timeouts etc. So yeah everyone is well aware of this, and its being worked on.

    If it's money that's the issue, why not add a ChipIn link or something?

    I am just happy that it has gotten faster again. That is all that matters... But I guess that means this thread can be closed right?
