I've been having forum issues over the last few weeks, and lately (last few days), they're getting more regular. It's not an Internet issue, as I regularly access this site from two places, with two totally unrelated ISPs.

Long delays in loading, new posts sitting with those gray blinking things for 10-20-30 seconds at a time. Marking a forum READ sometimes is quick, at other times takes 5-10 seconds.

The forum became incredibly snappy when you made that huge upgrade a few years back. I'm starting to feel like it's becoming pre-upgrade feeling.

Is it just me?

I have noticed a slowdown too, about 2-4 weeks maybe. I put it down to opening multiple tabs in Firefox 78.0.2 (oops, I see there's a 79 out now, will confirm one way or the other tonight or tomorrow.

Win10, 1909

My SOP is to open a specific forum, then right-click to open multiple threads of interest in a new tab, sometimes 8, 10, 12.

Lately each new tab is slow to open, the tab header eventually shows the thread title but there's a little back-and-forth blue icon to the left while the tab finishes opening. During this time the vertical scrolling display gets choppy, like the tabs opening is eating all the cpu. When each tab finally opens the choppy display resolves itself.

I use NoScript and AdBlock Plus. I have Facebook.net and .com "Untrusted" in NoScript.

I've noticed that Twitter embeds often take more time than usual to show up.

I just timed opening original forum tab plus 5 additional tabs and the blue ball "waiting" icon in the tab title space is actually doing a metronome, one second for each transition left to right and back. So it was 5 seconds to open 5 tabs.

Seems quick as usual for me.
mike, were you aware the forum has been sluggish all day, even throwing 502 sever down messages a few times?

it's hit or miss, but has mostly been an unpleasant experience today, and appears to be getting worse, in case you weren't aware.

No, I’ve been on & off all day without issue and there haven’t been any other reports.

Weird, I just checked again and not a single email. When we have a widespread outage or slowdown there are usually a bunch of emails.

When TCF is slow or unresponsive, as it was yesterday, I don’t think to email, as it is a frequent occurrence. I just chalk it up to Suckuri (my spelling) and go find something else to do. If the site owners aren’t being notified of frequent 402 errors by Suckuri, then perhaps it’s not the right choice.

Not sure if this is the same issue, but this morning TCF has been making my whole PC sluggish. Any time I load the forum, my CPU usage goes from ~25% to ~80% with nothing else running, engaging all cores simultaneously.

Engaging an ad-blocker (which I normally don't for this site) fixes the issue. Perhaps a shady ad is doing something in the background (mining crypto, etc.)?

I have not been on this forum for a while but I now notice that it takes over the CPU when it is running.

My guess would be a rogue targeted ad (based on your browsing history) that only you see. I'm not able to replicate it and the particular ad should quickly get replaced with a different one.

i hit the sucuri firewall error once last night, and it's caused the forum to hang a few other times, but a page refresh generally fixes things quickly.
