agreed with covert death
I seem to be having the same issues as Covert_Death as well, sometimes an AF page just won't load, or replies seem to take a very long time to process.
Give em' some time to optimize the server, that kinda stuff doesn't just happen over night. Be patient, things should improve.
This mornings few hours of sluggishness should be over.
I hope so. I gladly welcome any speed and stability improvements as over the past week or so I have had serious trouble loading pages.
I find it pretty slow most of the time, that's when I can connect when it's not slow I can't connect at all I just get connection timeouts. Also I thought thread subscriptions were reset? Mine seem to be going nuts. When there is a post on a thread I subscribed to some month or two ago I end up getting 4-5 emails for the same post.
Phandroid is down..
EDIT: Just kidding.. it's back up.
Loaded this page in 1.518 seconds... Not bad. Keep up the good work, guys!
I'll try but running in this hamster-spinner-thingy is exhausting!!
Here.. here, open your mouth while you're running.. DON'T STOP.. this is Dr. Pepper.. not Diet Dr. Pepper, either.
Hope this helps.. there ya go.. GO MAN GO!
The site has been slow a lot lately since last week. Time outs, database errors etc. Are you guys working on the site behind the scenes? Or is this site just having problems.
I have more problems with this site than any that I access daily:
1. database errors - site cannot load
2. server not found - site cannot load
3. slow as molasses - sometimes pages take a minute or more
4. pages simply do not load
this week seems worse. I gave up yesterday and the day started today with no access - database errors - for 20+ minutes.
this is very common for this site.
EDIT: it took 3-4 minutes for this post to take.. endless "loading" time
There's a posting by Phases here: http://androidforums.com/lounge/80480-why-sites-database-so-crappy.html#post758461 addressing the data base issues.
FYI - I can access all the forums, but the only part of the forum I can't access is the USER CP.
+1 to all of this. It seems to be getting progressively worse and worse. I've had to venture out into the rest of the internet to try to get my android forum fix: have you BEEN out there?! It's scary as hell!!! Joking aside, I really have looked around and no other android forum has the level of activity that AF has, not even something like XDA.
Dear god...site has been messed so far : < Nothing last night...on and off this morning...now no CP/PM..well at least I can read the subforums...kind of sucks since I want to know what's the lastest post for the Threads I've subscribed to :/ *sigh* I hope they get this all sorted and fixed, as we'll be seeing more people when Evo comes out...and if the site is crapping with the current number of users...how would they handle the influx of Evo users when June 4th..6th come. : <
Yeah, I've tried all of the other Android Forums out there, and this one is still the best by far. I guess this is the price that's being paid to be the best (to me anyways) Android Forums on the net. Traffic is good (online not the roads)...BUT too much and you get damn congestion (hiccups) or stand still (>_> site unable to load)
Wait... you guys cant access the User Control Panel or Private Messaging?
OK just checked and able to access now (2:02) ...wasn't able to from 1:40-2:01 est >_>;;
That's very odd... I was able to access them both between those times.
Yeah, but I'm happy that everything is up and running. I'd think I'd die if I can't take my '5 minutes' break on AF @ work XD
Looks like we may be getting another dedicated DB box.
A server just for the database?
Whatever adjustment you guys made (if any) worked wonders. The site is moving extremely quick now and user cp access is back.
Well.. we currently have one just for the database(s).... but "the database server" encompasses more than just AF's so, this one will be for AF only.
At least I believe that is where Robs chat with our host is headed. Will know for sure later.
