Just posted a response to a thread, took a while (like usual) to post it. Posted it and it appeared, it's in the 'recent posts' at the top yet upon refresh it's gone :s.
See if you can see it, http://www.neowin.ne...#entry595354444

I don't know if you guys saw my post but I have been having troubles with this website while using IE 10 in Windows 8. Works fine with Apple Safari 6.0.2 in Mac OSX 10.8.3 Beta 1 however, also works fine with Mobile Apple Safari in Apple IOS 6.1 Beta 2.

It was better for about a week. Back to absolutely awful again.

There is no reason (from a viewer standpoint) why it should take 17 seconds from when i click on a topic title until i can actually view the topic. Don't even mention posting or editing...

Unless things change for the better for a longer period of time, why should i ever pay for a subscription again? I mean, the slowness of the site is actually much more the norm than the exception. Not a criticism, but an observation.

Edit: 24 full seconds from clicking post to seeing this.

Edit2: Actually, editing is almost instantaneous. Weird and impressive at the same time.

Agree, 11PM EST and it's taking 30 seconds to load the forum index.

I need to chime in here. After several weeks of this, I've also noticed it happens pretty much like clockwork around 11pm EST. Give or take a half hour on both sides (Before and after) as I've noticed it happening at 10:30pm up until shortly after 11:pm.

Maybe there are a lot of scheduled tasks being performed around that time every night? If so, can they be spaced out?

I clicked on a link to a thread, it sat loading for a moment and I looked at the time wondering what was taking so long, 11:02pm. So I go back to the main page and click this thread to come report and from 11:02pm, it finally loaded at 11:13pm. I also stopped and clicked on the link again halfway through that.

There is definitely something going on around 11pm that's causing this.

11pm again, like clockwork.


Just took another 10 minutes to reopen this page (When I hit post on my previous post, it just said posting and never stopped). This time I got a couple of database errors before it came up again.

Edit: This particular post, posted within 5 seconds.

Double Edit: The forums are back up to speed again at 11:22

I actually have to say, it does seem to slow way down around 11 PM Eastern Standard Time. It is now 11:36 PM EST, and I started noticing clicking around various threads was slow about 30 minutes ago. I then clicked in this thread, saw the 11 PM EST theory above, and I am thinking there is definitely something to it.
