Website painfully slow

Post by zipadeedodah »

Is the website really slow for anyone else? It takes quite a while for the forums to load up, even on tapatalk. I don't know if it's my browser (safari) or what. could the website just be overloaded with users? My internet speed is fine and other websites load up perfectly.

I have to agree with you. Especially on tapatalk. It has been dragging the last few hours.

I've never used GG honestly. I've been busy all day, so I've barely used YTMD. The few times I have used it it's been decent but still slow at times. Definitely better than yesterday though.

it's always slow. I use Tapatalk most of the time for this website and it takes a while for the topics to load. Other forums I follow load up just fine.

I can't reply from my laptop. Keep getting Error 500 internal server issues.

I know that you have to pay for hosting etc but maybe we can have a fundraising event and get something better.

Still a mess. So slow and often says site is offline. Very frustrating!

I've noticed the website is fine during the day (most of the time), but in the evening usually around 9 pm it slows down SO much. I have actually fallen asleep while waiting for a thread to load up on Tapatalk lol

Unfortunately both GG and YTMD have had performance issues in the past few months. It is incredibly frustrating - especially when we're trying to moderate. Hopefully there will be a solution soon!

Exciting! Is there any timeline as to when we will switch hosts?

The last post was 2016. I’m guessing you are new here?

Trust me, the site is painfully slow every day. The only time it even loads halfway quick is early morning and late at night. Even then it’s sslllooowww.
