    Honestly I don't think there'a a problem, the site has been fine recently. The site takes a beating whenever something big happens, I assume yesterday and today's loading times were caused by the extra traffic after the DSi firmware update. Give it a few days and it'll all be back to normal [​IMG]

    My loading times have been acting up lately. It's either really fast or really slow.

    Same here. It seems to go the slowest during the daylight hours in the USA (12pm - 7/8pm or so), then speeds up after that.

    out of nowhere....
    Its OK until there is a lot of activity, like with the "DSi firmware 1.4 blocks flashcards! thread when it kicked off", at which point it all went pear shaped and it took ages to load or do anything. I do however appreciate, this site is free and has a good community, because of this I am willing to be patient and wait when there is an issue.

    Edit :- Hadrian, if your avatar is you then you look like Jack Black's kid brother ( if he had one )

    There's absolutely no way we can afford a new server at the moment, nor the time to get it up and running.

    I'll close this topic as there's no need to discuss this anymore.
