Slow response times

Up to 20 s to open a page for some days now using various platforms (Win 10, iOS 11). What gives?

server backups / site config can cause those symptoms

I only recently started engaging more here. I was also stricken immediately by the speed to load any page.
A bit discouraging when I just want to post or read or search and quickly be out. Oh well, I guess the "good" news is that it's not my device or network. I have to believe those managing the servers and/or the SLA from their backbone/network provider are on the case.

First-world problems to say the least...

Firefox on my WIN10 machine with ad blockers, iOS11 or 12 beta with Firefox or Safari without any ad blockers, response times slow be it over WiFi or mobile networks. Going on for some days now, Reporting from Germany.

Seems fine now but the other day when I posted it was slow.

I'm just running safari with nothing special for ad blockers. I get no errors either.

Never had an issue until recently.

As a test, I loaded about 5-6 random pages(threads). One took 8 seconds to open completely. The others took between 2 and 3 seconds to completely open from the point of the click.

Now, regardless of how long these pages open, I have a technique that makes the entire issue of page loading moot.

Here is how I normally browse forums like these.


1. I pull up the "New Posts" page for the last day (or 2 or 3 days if I've been away for a while). It may take a few seconds to load, but i only incur that delay here, never again.
2. I Control-Click the chevron symbol to the left of the thread name for every thread I wish to look at. This opens each thread in a new tab.
3. Once I've gone down the entire list of new posts. I close the new posts tab.
4. I read what I want from tab X and then close the tab when I'm done. If I reply to the thread before closing it, I hit submit and move on to the next tab and come back and close it later.


The advantage of this approach is that I never really have to wait for any page to load since the first one I opened will surely be open by the time I start reading it and the last one I opened will also be opened by the time I get to it. Once in a while, something goes wrong and one or more tabs don't load. I just click refresh in that tab and move on to the next tab and come back to it later.
