Over the last 3-4 days on site it seems to be having spells when it's moving like a tortoise with a wooden leg.Comments slow to load up, slow from gallery to PFs,slow in the critique gallery,stopped completely one afternoon.
I am on broadband, it must be a nightmare for anyone who is not.
All other internet activities are working fine so don't throw it back on my computer.
Anyone shed any light on this please.

Agree Brian. T'aint yer m/c IMO... Ditto my end too.

There have been server issues; Pete did call that out yesterday (I think) but then something happened and the 'old girl' started to REALLY fly.

But - as you say - things are a bit sporadic at the moment. The last hour/two has been fine in fairness...

EDIT:

...that is until now!!!

No, you're not alone. I've noticed it too, particularly when I've been submitting comments to the Critique Gallery, but at other times too. It can take a couple of minutes to get the site to respond.

Please explain .

Sorry all, we had a complaint about some accusatory (albeit tongue in cheek) comments.

I did not realize we were down to 'big brother is watching you' editing on the threads. If you do not like the comments made why don't you lock the thread as usual.
Your excuse is pathetic.
Why not tell us who the objection came from !!!!!

If there are problems with the running of the site, then the team probably know about it. I don't think they're leaving it that way on purpose. Server issues cannot be resolved in just a few minutes, and please remember it is Sunday night.

Perhaps wait a few days, and all should be back to normal again.

We are fully aware of issues and are trying to get to the bottom, as I explained on another thread.

We do not want the site running as it is and will do everything to resolve the occasional slow points. Although when it's running well it's very fast Smile

Please don't have a go Brian, we're just trying to keep things civil!

Not trying to cause a stir Pete, but with respect I have to say I was very surprised that anyone could have taken offence at the very lighthearted comments that were deleted from this thread.

Thanks for showing me your command of the written word.
You have really opened my eyes !!! who would have guessed that.

Did you actually see how trivial the deleted comments were.

Nope - but it sounded as if you needed a bit of clarification!! Wink
