A small note that over the next few weeks, there will be work to improve site performance. Part of this is strengthening against the ongoing malicious attacks as well and analysing to identify and fix bottle-necks. At times, some 'down-time' will be expected in which case the forums are generally accessible but posting is not permitted.

Hi Christopher.
Just wondering if the site has been periodically running slower than normal of late or whether I should blame my dodgy country internet connection?
The delays haven't been overly significant but I have noticed a slight slowdown.

Thanks Tim, I think it is to do with this site and server limitations so when all the fake traffic comes, it affects the real visitors. This, for example include the bots, many are just sucking the pages and being no good use to anyone, but there are also ongoing malicious attempts for find vulnerabilities.

Should be much faster now. Technically a change has been made with two databases, one for the forum and one for the main site. This increases the cost though we are also announcing a advertising partner soon who are directly making this possible - plus are compatible and relevant which has always been the aim for all advertisers on BNA.
