    • Board Upgrade   04/23/2017

      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out. 

Is it just me, or has the site slowed down again?

I don't have problems with the site loading......  What gets my goat is, when I click on a thread title on the New Content listing, I get the "spinning wheel" for up to a minute sometimes before that thread actually opens.  Then, when I write a reply to post in a thread, it sometimes takes a minute for it to actually post.  It's very annoying and frustrating.  I use Google Chrome on an ASUS computer with plenty of memory and AdBlock Plus.

This is pretty much the same problem I have, with a different browser and computer setup. I have learned patience. I just wait for things to load.

Yep... Obviously we have no choice but to have patience and wait......  Until the powers that be get around to fixing whatever is causing the problem.

Can it be frustrating to wait for the page to refresh? YUP, it can. But, as the computer sits on my hobby bench, I simply spend the time building. This is a hobby, and as such, is no reason to get the blood pressure up. Now, at my business where I am required to use state and federal web sites to process our firearms sales, and THOSE sites take forever to load and then sometimes time out in the middle of a transaction..................THEN I get JUST a bit upset, and have thought mightily about using one of my products to ventilate the computer sitting in front of me! But, one is fun, and the other is work. And FUN should be just that, no matter what! Build on!

Curiouser and curiouser.  Past few days, almost every other time I switch to a different thread, or even log in, the site hangs for 30 seconds to more than a minute. No problems on any other site, and I visit MANY daily doing parts purchasing and research for the 1:1 cars. Haven't changed browsers, settings, internet providers or computer.

On the flip side, uploads of photo-including (from P-bucket) content on my own build threads hang occasionally, and it sometimes doesn't hang at all...instant post.  :mellow:

This is the most inconsistant site I visit...but 80% of the time it's just  fine,and when it's not, it's only mildly annoying.

I've no reason to complain..just sharing with this post.

Yeah, this site gets annoying and I don't visit as much as I would like to, and posting a reply takes forever, but if you think this is bad go over to Ford Truck Ent. site, I had to stop going there, everytime I went my computer would just stop for three minutes.....and if I moved the mouse it would start beeping like wild...

Have a great day folks. I'll be lurking somewhere in the background........................

Working pretty good most of today, no hanging until after I logged in just now...which I usually don't bother to do just to read and look at pictures.

No changes on my end, just a mystery improvement in performance of the site.

Recent issues with the site are explained here:

I haven't seen The Evil Thing in two days now, and haven't had any site problems in two days, either. Coincidence? I think not.....

Joking around about the volunteers that are helping out on this board does not help. What helps is posting the actual problems you are having.

I have asked the administrator, Dave Ambrose, if he knows when he will update software.

From my server tech people:

 

So after looking into your load issue, I tested the website myself and found thing were loading at a normal pace and wasn't finding any issue with. I looked at your load logs with our mr.radar service and it appears you had an out of normal spike in server yesterday around between 6:45pm ET and 6:50pm ET. This is most likely due to a number of requests during that time, I will investigate further and let you know of any updates. Your load has returned to normal since then.

Just tried to copy / paste a post to the "1/24 history" thread in the "drag racing" heading. Same response I tried to post several days back. Got exactly the same result.

This Add keeps showing up on every page here that I view, usually in two instances.

One at the top of the page the other lower down on the same page.

It never actually opens anything in the blank black box area, just a spinning

(loading?) thingy in the center.

It can be closed by clicking on the X. 

It does cause a stall if not closed down as far as I can tell.

This is using an I-mac w/Safari.

Is anyone seeing problem or is it just me?

My PC won't even allow me to type while the ad is loading.  I have to close all instances and I have seen up to (3) on page.  Most annoying!!

Yes, It's annoying for sure.

I have tried to click on this thing to get to the source of this problem.

No results.

It has made it almost impossible to use this forum for me.

Yes is could have something to do with my I-mac and Safari settings, but it was never a problem before.

Again this AM, trying to post a response in a build thread, got the dreaded 404 message shown below, multiple times. I edited the response and tried to paste it back in, same result. Edited it more, and it finally posted, but the site then almost immediately knocked me off, and I couldn't log in again for over an hour. This odd behavior has happened before.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND, I'M NOT BASHING THE SITE. I'M TRYING TO POST FACTUAL INFO ABOUT PERFORMANCE ISSUES THAT MAY GIVE THE ADMINISTRATORS SOME INSIGHT.

The 404 error is one of the problems that's supposed to be fixed by this next update. Hopefully, that will be the case, and we won't be frustrated by it any more. It happens to me as well, so I know you aren't hallucinating.
