    Default Web pages loading slowly

    Last day or so, web pages at GITP (but nowhere else) have been loading very slowly for me. Is anyone having this issue?
    I CAN EXPLAIN IT FOR YOU, BUT I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT FOR YOU.

    Wasn't having an issue last night, but have definitely noticed it for the past couple hours. Even just loading this specific thread threw a 503 error.

    Can confirm it happens to me too. Using Firefox. Haven't checked any other browsers.

    Its happening to me as well. I got an error message saying that Vbulletin was having heavy traffic once, but haven't seen it again.

    Happening here too since yesterday! Sometimes my connection pretty much dies completely so I thought it was that but it's been going on for two days only here.

    Using Chrome, in case it's relevant.

    Want to try a WereWolf or Mafia game? Do you already know it and want to play it? Nothing currently recruiting!

    Same, plus some 503 errors that go away on Refresh.

    Having this issue as well. I thought it might be related to the increased traffic due to a new page of OOTS?

    I don't think it would be OOTS. I've had this issue since last night, and I don't think the comic was updated then.

    Even posting this message has given me a 'service unavailable' notice, hah.

    Edit- sorry for the double post. Whoops.

    Ditto here.

    Issue persists in both Firefox and Chrome.
    A neutron walks into a bar and says, “How much for a beer?” The bartender says, “For you? No charge.”


    Later: An atom walks into a bar an asks the bartender “Have you seen an electron? I left it in here last night.” The bartender says, “Are you sure?” The atom says, “I’m positive.”

    It's been loading slow for me too and I've also gottem an error message saying the server traffic was overloaded while trying to get to my watched threads.

    It;s probably a DDOS attack. Probably someone got banned by the mods and got cheesed off.

    Sheriff: We're looking into it. "Me too" posts beyond the first few are really unhelpful and reckless speculation about the cause is especially undesirable.
