Has anyone else noticed that occasionally this site becomes extremely slow to respond? My computer on Firefox3 spends a lot of time "waiting for biodiesel infopop". This does not occur on any other websites.
Is it a transmission problem or has this site become overloaded? Would deleting old messages help?

At certain times of the day, that slowness turns into timeouts for me. Same for ie adn firefox.

I noticed earlier today that the site was having some issues. Took a few tries to get around.

Happens to me virtually every time I use the site. But I have noticed that it seems worst at the start of a session, then speeds up as it goes along.

The current Infopop bug with Firefox3 is that this site never stops loading after showing the page one linked to. It's always "Waiting for biodiesel.infopop.cc..." in the status bar.
No other sites are affected abnormally in any way, just this one.

Yes, I've noticed that sometimes this site can be EXTREMELY slow, almost frozen.

Strangely enough I have never problems with that.
The site just loads steadily and fast at more or less the same rate every time.
There's no Java-stuff running, but a thread with big pictures could be slow to load.
But I don't think that's what you are referring to.
If this site were on an overstretched server, I would have the problem as well.
I also use FireFox by the way, but I did a test on IE7 and no problems there as well.

The slowdown is significant and inconsistent. Sometimes it loads fast sometimes it times out. There does not seem to be any pattern in terms of time of day.

Like he says, it seems off and on to me. Could it be adds using up bandwidth?

I experience the slowdown at times too. Infopop told me that it may be caused by the large number of stored posts. I'm looking at creating an archive separate from the forums, but that will take awhile to get done.

Is there any way for an individual to block delete messages earlier than a specified date?

I would gladly delete a bunch of old obsolete messages if wasn't such a tedious one-at-a-time process.

I'm sorry, I think they're wrong- I'm pretty sure this problem JUSt started in the last month or even in the past week, unless we just got over a magic number of posts that causes their servers to choke, it doesn't make sense that it would be something due to archive volume.

That's what I told them, and I'm waiting for their latest reply, should have it today. I also find it hard to believe it's the google ads, they've been up since February and this problem only started within the past 2 weeks or so. And we're not even using half of our bandwidth or disk space.

No, that's a moderator job. Give me a date and I will delete all your messages before that date.

It went back to normal about 10 minutes later.

Three times today the site appeared to be locked into 'waiting for infopop...etc.

Each time I had to jump out of the site.

It's getting worst.

I regularly seem to get very poor performance between about 1:00 AM and 2:00 AM CST.
(about 2:00AM to 3:00AM EST).

Sometimes I just get tired of waiting and shut down the machine, so I don't know exactly how long the problems persist.

This could certainly affect some international users, probably before noon for Europe.

keelec, thanks for the info, I passed it along.

Infopop has made this request:

Do you have other reports of this? I'd like to have more for us to check.

Be as time specific as you can. Thanks,

Shaun
