… you encounter problems such as waiting a LONG time for a page to come up, or even an error message such as “connection timed out.”
Our tech team has been tweaking some settings to try to deal with a problem that is believed to be related to the ongoing spambot siege. But as with all attempts to handle a persistent problem, there’s always the chance that a fix for Problem X could create a new Problem Y.
Working with the site all day and night, I notice glitches but if you just check in a time or two a day/night and experience one, you might think “oh, maybe it’s just me/my connection” and NOT report it. So I’m requesting – at least right now – that if you do hit a major speed bump and/or get an error message, please let us know.

i had hopoes there for a minute as the site seemed to be much faster when i logged on…
but at 7:37 i had three timeouts in a row before i could make an edit post.
is it good news that i am getting the timeout indicator much faster than i was yesterday?
who knows? anyway.. consider this information passed along.February 23, 2013 at 7:30 pm #785109
Thanks, Jo. The timeout indicator is part of an attempt to chase off the bots but is no good if it is causing trouble for real people. Appreciate the feedback; same thing was happening to me, so we’ll ratchet back. – TRFebruary 24, 2013 at 12:42 am #785110
I was getting that message late last night too, a few times. Intended to report it to you but then got sidetracked.February 26, 2013 at 4:34 pm #785111February 26, 2013 at 4:58 pm #785112February 26, 2013 at 6:03 pm #785113February 26, 2013 at 11:46 pm #785114
Thanks. Yes, we had some sort of craziness in the 8 am hour – I could not get in at all for a while either. We almost literally have this thing up on the rack and being examined over every bit of its operations … a few potential culprits have been identified so far and will be neutralized at the earliest opportunity. Thank you again for your patience and for reports when you hit one of the speedbumps. – TR
