Forum hangs when first loading.
« on: November 28, 2018, 06:00:03 PM »
Not sure if anyone else is getting this. When I click on my link to the forum here, the webpage hangs on 0 bytes loaded for a couple seconds before loading the page. Never used to do that. I'm on fiber, none of my other regular websites seem to be doing it.

Just a heads up.

Cheers!

Yep, it happens to me. I mentioned it in another thread.

I see this happening sometimes. Haven't tested to see if it happens every time upon first loading; my loose impression is that sometimes it loads fine on the first try (after a shutdown period) but most of the time it does lag at first.

Since the move, I also occasionally see this issue.

Sorry for that. It has to do with the recent migration...consider it a work in progress right now.

It has to do with the tremendous amount of traffic on the site. We've broken several records recently. We are literally setting the internet on fire!  \m/

I'm not sure if it might be browser related. I use Chrome and really haven't noticed any issues.
