About a minute to load on anything I click on.
Forums, threads, links, PMs, etc.
I haven't been timed out, so far.

Just started for me.

Loading real slow now and sometimes not loading at all.

Edit: Everything seems back to normal at 2:14PM EST.

Looks like I spoke too soon. Things have been stop/go this morning again. Like driving in rush hour traffic.

Unbearable slow right now. Takes minutes for anything to load. Does this on Chrome and Firefox so it's not a browser issue.

Same here. Haven't they had the issue off and on since the upgrade? This week has been really bad. Other sites are working fine.

The site wasn't even opening for me for a few minutes and just finally sped back up. Seems to be getting more regular.

Same. Back to normal for now. Part of me wonders if they are updating the forum when this happens. I think I remember them doing just that thing not too long ago.

The forums are intermittently terrible. Anandtech.com always loads in a snap, though.

Same here. I was also getting the logged in/out stuff. Seems to have cleared up for now at least.

Same thing here around 11:00 AM.

Was very slow loading pages for several minutes, and then after a bit it began working normally. This is how it has been over the last 5 or 6 days.

Did our forums get moved to a Gateway 2000-based server or something? :p

Getting "request timed out" errors this morning.

I guess that's better than the "gateway not found" errors I got a couple of days ago... :confused:

Ever since this site went to this new style, I've had more times dealing with issues than not. I said it when the new style of forums were forced on us and I'm still saying it's complete garbage. I don't have any of the issues on other forums that I experience on here.

Last few days I couldn't access the site from mobile (still can't) and I'm waiting almost two minutes for a single page to load. I still can't access my notifications (orange loading bar hasn't gone away in ~22 minutes and yes I've been keeping track) and most pages are timing out. I'll be amazed if this post even shows up.

Again the same problem.. pages take forever to load if they load at all.

Is there a DDOS attack or something?

It has been like this for past 4/5 days now in the evening/night.

Now every page takes about a minute to load. The new forum software really sucks.

I gave up yesterday as load times were so high - up to a minute per page.
