You can check out Aldie's Status update thread here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/785473/status-report

BGG is aware of the performance issues that is being caused by the new hardware and are working to correct it.

I wouldn't say that at all. Just slow, and it will be fixed.

Jeez, people. Relax and play a boardgame. BGG had a temporary technical difficulty that was kind of inconvenient for us. Shit happens. Put on your big boy pants and deal.

And I'm sure they are still working on it. See that's what is cool. For most companies if their website screws up, the CEO is yelling at "IT" to fix it. Here, the CEO IS "IT" so we know it will get fixed!!

IT meaning Information Technology or tech

Was just replying to the above quote to let them know it is still too slow.
I am sure they are trying to fix it.

If people with slow speeds can describe what they are clicking on or doing, I might be able to track down those specific problems. However, we just deployed 8 virtual web servers and the speed on my end has never been faster.

Accessing geeklists is slow for me, especially when I use my Quickbar. Also, subscriptions are very slow.

Thanks for asking!

Same here; general browsing on the site seems to be about 75% as fast as it was before as well.

I'm not sure if you meant me or not; to elaborate a bit, any of the geeklists on the front page take 6-8 seconds to open for me.

Ok, 6-8 seconds isn't that slow for us depending on the geeklist 20-30 seconds is...

If you can post a link of the slowest geeklist for you that would help.

Yeah honestly I can't be certain that anything is actually slower; funny since I'm here every day.

Anyway, this one: GMT P500 for April 2012 is probably the slowest I've seen.

Thanks for checking up, but more and more I'm thinking it's me perceiving the load times differently because of the outage.

That is a slow list - it took 4.5 seconds for the server to generate the HTML - and probably a few seconds for it to transfer to you.

Right now, I'm looking for the *really* slow stuff - thank you for sending me the report... This list seems to be pretty slow right now, and we'll eventually get to the point where we can go from 6-8 seconds pages and get them to load much quicker.

Here's one of mine, and you can check some of the other lists it's linked to as well.

I counted 14 seconds to generate.

Almost everything is slow, but to be specific:

I am trying to download the .CSV file of my game collection. It takes a very long time to bring up my collection and then once I click on the "download all" link, it spins for quite a while until it times out with an error. I've been trying to download the list for a few days now and it is always the same.
