Hi Folks

 

Is anyone else having issues accessing the forums. For the past few weeks I've seen very slow load times and frequent server timeouts. I've tried multiple browsers, clearing cache etc but they still persist. Just wondered if it was a know issue or something local here. My connection if fine and I don't have problems anywhere else.

 

Thanks

Paul

There are some minutes at 11am (GMT+1) each day where the server times out. This has been there for years, IIRC.

Hmm, thanks for the replies. Seems just to be affecting me then, and it's definitely not limited to particular times. Also not limited to particular devices as I've tested from more than one machine. I'm in the UK but don't see what difference that would make. Perhaps it's an ISP thing. I'll try to check via mobile while I'm out and about tomorrow.

It's been happening to me more and more, but mainly when I'm on a little Netbook and not so much my main PC...I don't know if there's an issue or if it just happens from time to time...

Same here. Started on Sunday and AA page loads are slow on all devices in the house, with occasional timeouts. Still happening today.

EDIT: ...and now it's working just fine again.

No problems here, must be an ISP issue.

I definitely see an issue with one browser. I have to often hit browser reload to complete the page. That browser doesnt have an issue with other sites and another browser doesn't have an issue with atariage. If you have a problem try and reproduce it in a different browser.

The only time I see a lag or no response is around 2:30-3AM CDT.  Then after a few minutes, everything's back to normal.

That fits to my observations (9:30-10:00 CET).

I'm experiencing the same symptoms here. It's not limited to particular times and it's going on for quite a few days now.

I notice stuff like this frequently, but not sure if it's the site or my ISP. Charter cable ISP has always been flakey.    :(
