Is it any better now? It seemed slow for me at first, but now it's loading normally.

I see you have a couple of your images hosted remotely - if those servers are down or slow, that would slow down your board load too. I'd suggest you move them to your file hosting area. :smile:

Hmm, I'm really starting to wonder whether anyone is reading my posts... LOL

I've already explained that "busy server" messages will still occur - it's a holiday weekend (probably raining LOL) and lots of people are visiting their boards. PLUS we still have the deleted free boards problem haunting us.

I've been on this board for 5 solid hours and I've received one server busy message in the last four of those hours.

YES, it was awful before that and YES, it was frustrating for everyone (including me I might add), but what's happening now is normal for the existing conditions, as stated above. :smile:

THREAD MERGED AT THIS POINT

the Bb server has been quite slow lately(and sometimes unaccessable), and this is unacceptable I'm afraid. Is this problem going to persist or shall we try to find a solution. Best of luck.

What time zone are you in and what part of the world Pickles? (This is BbAdmin/Pamster FYI) I know my ISP was down all day yesterday and my area had some serious routing issues. I know Bb had been slow which is why we purged it of all the old free boards recently. What kind of slowness are you experiencing now? Is it only on your board or here on Support too?

I am on support every single day at varying times and I have not encountered any slowness at all, other than general net slowness occasionally. I know it's the net, because I always test other websites as a comparison, if I think there may be a problem.

If anyone has slowness on their own board, it's likely to be caused by either very large (unoptimised) images or images hosted remotely.

I've found Bb VERY slow in these past few weeks, and I've had countless "High Demand" screens. Maybe the server needs a reboot?

And maybe some people just need to remember that there are several nodes between our server and their ISP's - any of which could be slow or even down for some reason. Sometimes the net itself is extra busy. Please don't automatically assume the slowness is due to us, because it isn't.

Server busy messages do occur sometimes (due to google bots mainly) and of course are exacerbated by people refreshing their screens continuously, because they haven't the patience to wait a minute or two.

I have been getting the High Demand on server, please try back in a few minutes. Problem. When it occurs on my board, it's also occurring on the support forums. I am on EST (East Coast of US) time.

One thing I noticed is the "Server Status" box in the sidebar on the left of the support forums is completely empty.:spinsmile:

Server busy messages occur when lots of people are trying to access the server at the same time - obviously if everyone then tries again, they will get the message again. :wink:

Yeah, Lol!

I've noticed a lot of bots - no more than usual though, I'm wondering if there's something up with Bb? Maybe she's got the flu?:wink:

Net traffic and google bots probably is contributing to it to a large degree but I did decide to go ahead and mention that I also have experienced the high demand messages a lot myself. I'm on the East Coast. My co-admin is on the West Coast and he's getting it rather regularly also. I haven't been online as much this week but apparently a number of people from our board have gotten the message often enough to mail me asking what's wrong. This afternoon I jotted down the times for our board just for a short period: 1:55pm, 3pm, 4:27pm, and 6:11pm. Don't know that reporting it will make any difference but thought ya'll might like to have some specifics as to how frequently it's occuring.

It doesn't actually matter where you are - if the server is busy, you'll get the "server busy" message, whether you're in England or New Zealand (those being the two places the furthest apart from each other at 12,000 miles).

I have a theory that even though the free boards were recently deleted from the Bb server, people may still be trying to access them (particularly on a holiday weekend) from their stored bookmarks. If this is so, the demand will eventually die down, as people finally realise the boards are gone for good. :smile:

I am consistently getting the "I have been getting the High Demand on server, please try back in a few minutes" error no matter what time of day I access the board. I understand that servers get busy, but thought that removing the free boards was to eliminate this problem.
BbAdminMod, please don't get all worked up over us notifying you of an error, that is what this forum is for.
We are simply making you aware of what we as, paying members of Best Boards and our members are seeing when they try to access our boards. We are not trying to make you hostile.
I have avoided commenting on it as long as possible for fear of getting jumped all over for making a comment.
I have had members send me messages wondering if I paid my bill because of this now so I wanted you to be aware of the problems we are encountering at http://bb.bbboy.net/funwithphotos
And it occurs at all hours of the day not just peak ones.

Ok just this minute I got that message and have at least learned to copy my post before hitting submit so as not to lose it...........
