Slow posting is back (July 2012)

It's taking a long time to post again. 10-20 seconds from when I hit the button.

Edit: That one took 40 seconds.

Yup, been seeing it myself, again. But not on every post. Totally at random, as before.

What the hell??? Just came in to complain about it. Is this something the forum has done? Is this Vigilink related?

Wow. That last post took over two minutes and then it brought up an error message saying "server cannot be found" but yet, it posted it. I'm a long time paying member and this really sucks...

Of course it's working for YOU. That always happens. I bet this one posts just fine for me now that you're looking.

Yep that one posted just fine. Which makes this random and even harder to fix.

And this one didn't. Took two minutes and then I got the same error message that it "can't open the page" as below.

Mike, it is very inconsistent. I'll make a post that returns instantly, then one will hang up, but not the next one. Not predictable at all. Which I know makes it really hard to diagnose.

It might be a specific ad as it comes into rotation.

Yeah. It's happening almost every time now. That post up there took over a minute... This is really irritating. I'm gonna leave for a few hours and hopefully you guys can get this resolved. It's incredibly frustrating...

I am seeing this posting problem so it is unlikely that it is related to ad rotation.

Just so you know, the post happens, even if you navigate off the window while it is stuck. That's what I have been doing, once I determined I did not have to wait.

For the record...forum members get served ads, TC Club members don't.

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.
