Speed (Slowness) of Opera Forums

  • @davehawley, what is curious is that the "Opera" server for my communicating with Opera forums is currently showing as located in the US. Obviously, there must be some handoffs with other Opera servers elsewhere, and I suspect it is those handoffs that are causing the bottlenecking. For example, this site just now took 23 seconds to load after coming here fresh from the DSLR forums (which took all of 0.9 seconds to load), both from "cold' starts with a freshly restarted browser, but with log-in cookies already stored in place.

  • That is odd, I've almost never had it not load instantly for me, except on the odd occasion that it's actually been down altogether of course!
    The only thing it does always do is to load and then immediately refresh to automatically log me in.

  • ... it does always do is to load and then immediately refresh to automatically log me in.

    I get the same "immediate" refresh behavior to automatically log me in as well... but "immediate" here typically amounts to an additional 15-30 second load time. However, I have noticed this afternoon a marked speedup of forum page loading... this page just now loaded in 2.7 seconds, and I've never seen an Opera forum page load so quickly here before.

  • It is o'k for me - except for this issue.

  • I feel ya, mines is running so slow I think I
    m about too change back

  • Is it only I, or is the forums slow today?

  • Today?

    Today I came with Firefox, it's slow, but I tend to blame it on my browser.

  • Yes, the forum does seem to be slower than usual at the moment (using Opera 12.18).

    I have been noticed it too.

  • You were noticed, Leo 😉

    Today with Google Chrome it's all right.
