Hey guys, are we getting attacked again? Today ATS seems to have slowed to a crawl and a couple of times I couldn't get it to open at all. Is there something going on with the site? I have also noticed that a few people's avatar don't seem to be loading. I have used multiple computers and also my cell so I am almost positive that it is not from my end (unless my provider is blocking you).

Just thought I would check in to see if others are noticing anything.

I'm having trouble too... slow-loading pages or the pages time-out.

I thought it was just me!

Business as usual over here in the UK,but there again it's always run at full speed for me without any pop-ups no matter what happens to anyone else.

Everything is working okay on my end.

Thanks for all the replies. It seems to come and go. Right now it is trodding along with no problems. Hopefully it was just a glitch as it now seems fine. It was earlier this morning (around 7 this morning) that I first noticed. It will fly along and then grind to a halt again. I will keep an eye on things and see if it improves or if I notice it on anything else.

Earlier today it was wonky for me, and I'm not too far from you, if I recall correctly. That was 930-945 this morning. I've had a handful out sluggish loads too, both on mobile and the laptop, which have been connected through the same WiFi all day.

Western Pa here and I am having the same issues. Since Windows Edge browser has been such a pain in my ass I thought it might be that, but it did the same on Firefox.

Most likely a trafficking issue with something going down on the information highway.

Appears to be working fine for me.

I have been sending a billion pings per micro seconds since this morning to check the status. They all made it successfully.

I just found an interesting site that show internet outages on the Backbone.

It does appear a major trunk went down in the NE US.

Off & on loading issues for me in W MI. If there's anything going on & ATS isn't getting hammered again or having connection problems for some other reason, I doubt it's any individual provider like Comcast. There's probably something intermittent going on with one of the "backbone" networks such as Cogent.

I thought the page loading times had just dropped like a rock because I finally realised I hadn't white listed ATS for adblock correctly.

It's the voodoo Loa that stalk the internet ... or autonomous AI consolidating their power sources (sorry, Gibson fan).

2 nights ago the page kept crashing. Gone and browser message that the site could not be reached. I pulled up a bunch of other sites at random, no problem. This was to the point I pulled up the Norse Map. It did finally come back up and stay up, though.
