Slow website
« on: February 20, 2018, 06:13:39 AM »
Hi

Just thought I'd let you know that when I'm typing a post, it seems to pause (or freeze) occasionally whilst typing and then catches up...putting the characters in that I've typed but didn't show.

I've only noticed this recently. It's happening on my work PC and home PC and very intermittent.

Is it in the movie or music voting threads? That's the only place I'm seeing it and I know it's from all the youtube links.

I'll take a look at it later this morning after I've got kids to school and job calls handled.  I've noticed some slowness when on my phone, but it was affecting other sites, too and not just GH, so I thought it was the phone.

Not sure if it helps in your investigation, but I am using Chrome from my desktop computer on Windows 10.

No problems from my home or work machines this morning.

For anyone who is having trouble with sight speed, please humor me and go hit a couple of articles on the front page (yeah, yeah...) and leave a comment or two, even if they are not immediately approved to appear. That will help me narrow down whether it is the entire site, or forum specific

No. It happened as I was writing the original post here (and is now) and also in the Computer Gaming forum...basically wherever I go

(Like Gus...oops - meant Grim - sorry Gus), I'm using Chrome on Windows 7 (at work and home)

I just went on the main page (who knew Unicorns were real?) and typing there was fine.

I'm running the DB backups now before I start on the maintenance processes

We'll see if that helps.

Even if it doesn't, it's been a while and I need to do them

Just had some slowness as JD describes in the pc gaming thread, but I would blame my phone quicker than the site.
