Acorn is terribly slow, maybe the ads? it's not just Romania, Oz as well.
Yes things are abit slow at the moment. To clarify - that is the site, not just me and lee
Yes really slow last night and this morning... I couldn't get past the home page yesterday and today I've just about managed to get here!
You know there must be somthing wrong when there is only 4 users online! I'm sure Admin will shed some light on the matter later today!
Experiencing the same problems as well. In fact it took that long to post this message, I nearly clicked off.
Yep, same for me last night and today - also managed to just get here.
Perhaps AD has had a heavy night out on the town and has a bit of a hangover?! Some plink, plink, fiiiiiiiizzzzz is in order perhaps.
We had a similar problem on another vbulletin board I mod on. We had 600 members logged in and 800 Guests.
After a quick investigation, most of the guests where Yahoo! Slurp Bots crawling the site. There's an option in Admin Control Panel to show the Bots under the 'Who's online' section.
Edit: Looking at the whos online, the option is on and most guests are Yahoo!
Yep was slow for me last night.... i was well board so decided to watch a film instead
It's working OK for me but wasn't here much last night.
Yahoo constantly bombards the site I have tried to limit it.
I will check with the hosting company as I dodn't change anything, add extra ads or anything for weeks.
Seems OK now admin, thanks.
Perhaps the server had a blip or some down time?
Maybe yes, I am trying to find out.
