    So, recently, GBAtemp went offline for a while. [​IMG] One day (today), my friend texts me that its back. [​IMG] So I open my IE7 Internet Browser, and it takes over 10 min. to load my portal! [​IMG] It works fine w/ Apple's Safari Browser. So, what's up?

    Basically, 4 major games were released (if you count Pokemon as two). Whenever a major new game is released, it slows down the site. But 4 made it pretty much die. They had to shut it down for a while.

    What gran said.

    This is what we call a noob flood. Or whatever many people come in to find patches and just spam questions, contributing to the load of the sever.

    You might like to know that Kingdom Hearts is gonna be released soon, and the J release was pretty bad.

    So people are going Pokemon-crazy enough to effect the site? Wow...

    That still doesn't answer my question: why does Safari work, but not IE7?

    Gbatemp just got massively destroyed because M&L 3, Pokemon SS/HG, and Scriblenauts Were released and these fucking noobs Just destroyed the site.
    Im guessing untill like late October the site will go back to normal.

    Browser issue sounds like it's on your end, my Opera is loading GBAtemp just as fast as Chrome.

    The site speeded up substantialy for me on IE, and I am glad the site didn't go down for something worse than a Noob Flood/Tsunami [​IMG]

    Kingdom Hearts... *Runs to a corner and cries about not being able to get my daily dosage of GBATemp*

    It's still slow at GBAtemp on Firefox and Flock (a Firefox clone). It's a bit slow on Safari 4, though.
