Is anyone else seeing BGG perform at a snail's pace lately?

I'm having pages take MINUTES to load (seriously!). I get a "Website found. Waiting for reply..." message at the bottom of my browser. Things like the Image gallery mod work ok - but only after it takes awhile to load a bucket. Everything else is at least 20-40 seconds to load at best and many times several minutes. I'm wondering if this problem will go away once the image gallery modding is complete.

Anyone else?

Edit: I just opened my Yahoo! home page, logged into my mail, checked it AND came back here - all before this message uploaded.

Re: BGG is slow lately. I mean really slow. Did I mention sl
I've noticed that it comes and goes in spurts. I'll be modding or whatever and all of a sudden it hangs for almost a minute, then everything is up and running fine again.

Probably from the Image Gallery modding. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

I've noticed that it's been slow too. Sometimes I randomly time out in geekchat.

It is from the image gallery modding, which should be done shortly. Also, changes to the forums that are actively in the works should speed things up.

I think we're having a combined problem of the image gallery tagging being fairly intensive and the forum software showing its age.

The image gallery modding will be over soon, and I am working on new forum software.

I would prefer forum software that makes everyone thumb everything I write. Just a minor suggestion.

Very slow, yes, particularly, it seems, in getting to and posting forum comments.

Another strange thing: in the middle of the day today the print font on the left-side columns (Recently Viewed, ect.) has changed, becoming smaller and fuzzier. Also, the font displayed when typing forum replies is small and in serif style, while the finished posted comment is larger and in sans-serif.

I'm always mystified by these infernal machines anyway, so I don't know if this is supposed to have happened or not, whether it's my Wonder Machine or the site, and whether there's anything to be done.

It's just odd.

Seems to be working already!
Is this a feature like adblock?

I don't think so.

Sure, we'll have images thrown willy-nilly into three buckets, mostly in the "game" bucket. But then people will still need a way to find the useful images and we'll have to do it all over again with sub-buckets.

The BGG website has been reacting very slowly lately. This seems especially apparent when images are hit. Someone mentioned that it may have been due to the advertising contained therein, but that may not be the reason.
