    Yep I noticed that too. It actually posts it even while the little ball is spinning. The workaround has been to leave the posting window, go to the "History" menu and reload the page the original thread is on and Voila! The post is there. Something is seriously wrong though, it shouldn't be that much work and most people will never figure that workaround out.

    How did they fix this last time it happened? What was the problem back then?

    I'm a club member and a handful of replies have taken 45-60 seconds to submit over the last 2-3 days. Something's borked.

    Hey everybody--

    Thanks for the testing and details on this. The last time this happened, it was a server issue and was fixed when we improved/revamped it. Since that change, I don't believe that anything on the server end has been changed, so I'm unsure of why this is happening now--but it sounds like something is definitely going on.

    Sorry that I don't have any answers right away, but I hope to learn more soon once we investigate this.

    Pete

    You're welcome. I'm especially concerned/curious because this is an issue that has already happened in the past. I hope we can find out what is going on soon--in the meantime, any additional reports of slowness (with browser/OS used) and time they occurred would be helpful.

    It seems to be working okay for me today. So far... I'm on an Apple Macbook Pro using Safari. :)


    ETA: Yep those last two posts went through in a couple of seconds. :up:

    So, it's consistently inconsistent, is that what you're saying? :D




    EDIT TO ADD: This post took ~45 seconds to submit. :(

    I had a few slow downs in a row, but the ones here posted fast. It is just mocking me, at this point! :mad:

    When it hangs, I click the "post" button again, and then it complains about it being a "duplicate post." :-/

    Yeah, it seems the problem isn't in the posting, it's in loading the page after posting.

    Seems to be working okay for me the last couple of days. Anyone else still seeing the problem?

    Not for me. It's back. In another tab I have a post that's basically stalled when submitting. It's been over a minute.

    Hey everyone,

    Could you let me know if you are currently still experiencing slowness on the site as reported before? Our tech team has been investigating this and has found nothing unusual so far--everything seems normal, but I haven't gotten the full report yet.

    If you have been continuing to see it, it would be good to know the time of the outages as well as system/browser info so I can pass that on.

    The problem is that it comes and goes. Consecutive posts may have one be slow, and the other be normal. As others have mentioned, the posting is fast, it is the refresh that is slow. Every time it gets slow, if I force a refresh immediately, the post is always there.
