    Default Problems with BF?

    Is anyone else having problems with BF? I'm not sure if I just need to clear cookies, caches, etc. but it's been giving me a lot of issues with loading, following links, that kind of thing. It will either lag, do nothing or take me to a Diagnose Connection Problems page. Is it maybe the theme I'm using, Chestnut? There are times when the User CP won't work as well. Is it because of allowing non-members on the forum, making it lag?

    Tons of questions, I know, sorry but I just wanted to see if anyone else was having this problem and if there was any way to fix it myself or if it was just something that would pass eventually. I know there's only so much you can do about the server itself, but if it's something I can fix...

    It's being a little slow for me today, but until I saw this thread, I honestly thought it was just my computer, lol.

    Me too, and I thought it was my internet connection. I also noticed that happening yesterday.

    Im not having very serious problems but the last couple of days its been a little slow, sometimes going up to minutes while loading a certain thread and sometimes it all works perfectly. Not sure what is the problem myself, but judging based on what Ive been experiencing Id say its just the traffic... maybe were getting more popular
    In the end, we all are who we are, no matter how much we may appear to have changed.

    I've had a little trouble myself yesterday evening and today. But usually if it's not going, I just stop the request, wait a minute and try again and it works. Don't keep hitting refresh because that sends multiple requests to a server already bogged down by too many. It's tempting, but it's best to just stop the request, wait, and try again.

    Nikki is the only one who can look into the server and see how it is running. We had some problems earlier in the year, which is why we made the forum private for a sometime. Lots of google bots can be accessing the forum and slow the place down.

    I can make the forum private if people feel they are having a lot of trouble.

    There are some problems on the server. I've opened a ticket with my host. Hopefully it will be resolved quickly.

    Edited: Ok it was resolved just before I wrote this!

    There is a very high server load now, we are using 97% of our memory. I think we need to make the forum private again.

    97%? Good god! Well, if anyone's interested the forum's been working much better and I've had no problems getting to my User CP or the like. Kind of had a feeling it was just the traffic, which kind of sucks because there have been so many new members that have come because of it. Either way, thanks Nikki

    Hey BF team! I have noticed a spike in traffic on my site as well. Maybe it's Season 9 anticipation.

    I had to reset my password today, and have been having to re-log-in a lot while on the forums.

    Any ideas why?
