    Hiya guys,

    Recently, I am getting much slower responses from BBTactics.com and there are times
    when the pages don't open at all.
    It takes longer to refresh the pages or go through the link.

    Does anyone noticed that too? It could be because the traffic had significantly increased due to BB2/WCQ influence, and also because there are many images posted in the threads too.

    I'd like to know whether it is a wider issue than just me.
    What is your experience?

    Cheers!

    I have had similar problems with pages not loading the first time or taking a very long time to respond. I lack computer expertise so do not know what could be causing this.

    I haven't noticed any major delays, I think. Except by cellphone while riding a train, but those times it can happen with any page.

    The site is hosted in the UK rather than the US like a lot of sites. Certainly big images in threads will also cause slower load times.

    I could move to a quicker host but that costs a lot more. Peak internet times will also likely cause slower load times compared to other times of day.

    It was never a problem for me but this weekend the site was unresponsive a few times.
    Thanks for reply, coach.
    Should we ask not to post huge JPGs on the forum (I am guilty myself, I admit)?

    Nah it's just that thread that would be affected by big pictures on the whole. If the rest of the site was slow it was probably either due to other sites on the same server being busy or some trans atlantic traffic slow down as all the Europeans who've replied haven't noticed any issues.
