Default Forum Loading Issues

I've noticed a slow increase in people commenting on the forum being slow and/or unresponsive, and now it's happening to me too. I'm not sure if it's a random occurrence or part of a bigger problem that's gradually getting worse.

It came out of nowhere this morning. Pages were taking 1-3 minutes to load and sometimes just loading indefinitely. What's interesting is that the forums work absolutely fine when using the TA app, but not a desktop browser or either of my iPad browsers.

Other sites are working as intended and my internet connection is as strong as it's ever been. I've tried clearing cookies and so on, but the problem persists over multiple browsers anyway. I've also checked my router/firewall for any unusual restrictions and couldn't find any.

I took a couple of screenshots in case they're helpful, both are on Windows 7 64-bit.

With Firefox 20.0.1:



With Chrome 26.0.1410.64:

Yeah, I mentioned it before too in another post, but in the last 3 days, getting that funky problems with no icons, not being able to attach files, slow bandwidth, and other issues, maybe needs to be checked on.

I can confirm the same too, roughly 7-8h ago. Seems to be more or less back to normal now.

Does the same issue affect Android users or is it restricted to iDevice and Windows browsers only?

So, if icons and images aren't loading correctly, it's a problem with our CDN (content delivery network).

All our images go through them. Example:

I can get in touch with them about it.

The forum is behaving for me again today. It was acting strangely for a long time yesterday though, well over 12 hours, probably closer to 20.

I'm starting to get this problem now.



I've had this for (so far) under 10 hours. This is occuring on Safari and Mercury on my iPad. I can still perfectly well access other sites, and the app is still working great, it's just the forums that are messing up. Another problem with the CDN or is it just me?

I'm having extreme load times as well. Started yesterday or the day before. All the forum pages take up to a minute to load and they don't ever fully load. Running Chrome on my laptop.

It's happening again. The app is fine, but I've been unable to load a page for the last 6 hours or so from my PC.

Seems to happen every once in a while, though usually when you say something I have problems, but for me everything is fine now, knock on wood.
