Anyone else having to wait a while for the forums to load? For me, other websites and forums load with no delay, but this forum takes a while.

They take a while to load at times, but it's fine.

Sometimes it's fine, but then other times it takes forever to load a page...

Yeah they tend to be slow.
Greg predicted this when the move to filefront was mentioned though :-/

I was going to make a quirky retort to this, but when I hit "quote"....well...by the time this page loaded up I forgot what I was going to say.

I've noticed it is slow as well, even though this is not always the case.

The hamster running on its wheel that powers the filefront servers must be asleep at this point.

We can only wait and hope he regains his energy.

The main question is: Will the forums remain this slow?

I've noticed. It takes 10 minutes just to go into a thread that I immediately realize I have no interest in when it finally loads. x_x

When the forums were on Oktagone servers. forum.esforces.com pointed to a dedicated box. On filefront, ESF's main page and forum are on the same box, sharing bandwidth and resources with other pages. One of the main problems with this is that the forum is running on a box with half the strength of the original, and sharing those resources with other sites. You will notice slowness, and I'm sure when beta 3 comes to it's next full release, this forum will be failbait.
