    Just people giving excuses to artificially increase their post count :P

    They just have to be more patient and let the forum do it's thing. I haven't had a single double post (sounds weird, don't it?) so far. But yeah, there is a noticeable lag (10 - 15 sec) while posting.

    I'm lagging just trying to read the board. I've been using the F5 key a lot more than normal due to timeouts and 504 errors.

    Haven't had anything double post, but then I don't post that much. Posting does take 20+ seconds though.

    I will echo the others though it has only been the last few hours I have been getting the 504s. I even had a search fail on me earlier* though I do not know if that was if you enacted measures (it was after you noted this topic).

    For the past few days (maybe up to about a week though I was on lousy connections for the week prior so it might have been longer) what I imagine to be the database access stuff has been a bit slower -- things like posting, getting alerts, editing posts, doing the moderator bit up to and including simply selecting posts sometimes sees me get more posts selected (if I select 2 I might get 4, it might also still tell me I have two selected even if I merged the posts or something). I have made a few double posts but most of those were because the posts did not automatically add and revert me and it sometimes takes a full page refresh (control and f5) to find out I did actually succeed in posting.
    I have had to sort an increasingly large amount of double posts as well.

    A couple of weeks back it was not instant but definitely blink and you miss it.

    *I do not know if it is because I am staff or what but I have no time limits/cooldown times on my searches and I can search for nothing but restrict by member name.

    Quite a bit of the internet feels lagy. Speed tests show I have good ping and speed but certain sites like ebay and the temp are bogging down. Even google searches feel a bit slower than normal.

    I'd normally blame it on me shitty internet.
    But 504 errors aren't related to that atm ;p

    Yep, I've been getting 504 as well.

    Not only that, I've been trying to like Kinekto's post giving news about Xuphor. It took a long time. 504s, posting....RAWR!

    For me when I post, that little icon in the top right shows, and then it will disappear without my post being posted, it'll still be in the quick reply.

    I go to the main forums, go back to the thread, and then it shows my post being posted.


    Also I get no alerts when people reply to me or send me a PM.

    It seems like the problem is gone here, pages load really fast now ^_^

    Posting goes really slow though. Had to reload the page to make my post appear.

    Yeah. The site has been mucking up for me as well. Got a 504 Gateway Timeout earlier as well.

    /sob

    Took 10 minutes for this post to go through. Sheeeeeeeesh! And I've been seeing double posts all over the 'Temp.

    Possible solution: stop using Ajax (or whatever equivalent is used) to handle quick reply submission. (Do a full post back). When people see the page still loading, they don't think the request was dropped and press the button again.

    Edit: This was unintentional. Really.

    The 504 server error I've gotten multiple times today might have something to do with it. Any leads as to the root cause?:unsure:

    The server has been as laggy as hell when posting or liking posts. What the hell's wrong with this site? 504 errors, lagging posts, this is getting weird :blink:

    The site has been like this since at least ~9AM. What would cause this?

    I know, right? The server's been sucking hard for a while now. Posts take me 10-15 seconds to post, same with liking, and 504 error are common. It shows the little loading icon on the top-right corner, then disappears. I press F5, my post is magically there. WTF? It ain't my connection, and since I'm on Ethernet, I've been getting 15 mbps (which is good for a college apartment complex)

    I honestly haven't had too many issues, although posts do take some time to show up after I click post reply.


    EDIT: This post just took me 23 seconds to load.

    EDIT2: And another 34 or so to save changes to the edit above.
