I had sever lag for a while this morning, all other sites worked fine.

Trace route was dropping in Phoenix, Az.

Happens quite often with me. Click on a thread and sometimes it takes over a minute to process the request, most of the time the request comes up fast.

Could be too many requests to their servers at a time but this seems to occur at any time. Maybe they have a flaky ISP, don't know.

Ats has been working fine and way faster than it use to be sin e the update a couple weeks ago. It has never run so smooth. Nor more 2 or 3 min load times in middle of the hour anymore. About time it was fixed.

Site is still slow but now at random times all through the hour. Sometimes threads time out, sometimes they load after a minute or two. I've also noticed that on some days the problem seems to be specific to files.abovetopsecret.com, i.e. no avatars are visible or any images that are posted although slow thread opening still persists also.

In other words, the problem does not appear to be fixed yet.

I had to bookmark the Newest topics page and put it on my homescreen because the ATS site itself only updates once a day. Around 8 in the morning.

Nothing changes on the page all day. All topics remain the same.

Pretty lame.

Actually, I've been having better luck with it this week. I think a lot of the lag has to do with the way the ads are run.

"Utterly unnaceptable"

Lolwut? This is a service provided to you for free, you'll accept it any way the operators provide it. If you aren't happy with that then you can simply stop using the service.

And interact directly with my family? No way!

now experienving unnaceptable lag @ H+42 [ and 4 min wait to get tis page load ]


a reply to: hombero

yes - it is unnaceptable - hear is why :

this site needs page views from NON MEMBERS to rack up the ad tokens - that pay for the service - the ATS members do not generate enogh traffic to run the site

now - if a member of the public - has to wait 2 min for a page load - they will click quit - and not return - concluding that " ATS is crap "

thats why ATS has to operate reliably and consistently at the speed people expect in 2019

having down time - and splash screens announcing a 30 min " off line " maintainence period - is acceptable - and people will come back - but they will never return once they have had more than one page load at glacial speeds

its unacceptable

after the server update we had a few days of "wow they fixed it" then yesterday and today the whole timing out problems and the other stuff we were experiencing started all over again occasionally .... sorry to see it..

At the moment it is utterly ridiculous for me.
It has just taken 8 minutes to log in.
It takes at least 30-40 seconds to load a post! (That's fast by the way, I've waited up to 4 minutes before giving up!)

I can't make a new post to Board & business Q's because it just keeps going back to the same thing.

What the F is going on? I have no problem with any other sites so I know it's not on my end.

I've put up with this for over a week, visitors won't!

PLEASE PLEASE get this sorted out.

This happens regularly for me as well, I used to assume it was an ad crashing the page.
