    Hi All,

    Yes, I do experience it too today. And same with everybody else, yesterday was a bit better. I have alerted the guys behind our servers about it and I believe they are already working on it. We're still figuring out what is causing the slowdowns and hopefully it could be resolved as soon as possible.

    Thanks,
    Erik

    Just as I say that it seems quicker again now, typical, but it always seems to come back at some point these days.

    True. Just as I hit on "Post Reply" refreshing got a bit quicker. Though I do have a hint on why is this happening, I just hope that this could be fixed really soon.

    I've noticed a "double post" or two, where it takes so long for the first to show the writer click Post again.

    Pretty slow for me as well.

    Must be constant server attacks. Some one is clearly persistent.

    Well there are certainly a number of folks who are not happy with the direction of the forum over the last quarter, maybe a bit of payback?

    Who did you have in mind? The list is long with various suspects.
