Slow website


Website Feedback


Good grief, guys! Every time I try to browse the website it is abysmally slow. It's particularly frustrating when trying to research adventure modules. I'll load up 3rd level adventures, for example, then sort by average customer review, select an adventure to look at, go back to the adventure list, resort them, then rinse and repeat. Each click takes at least 15 seconds, sometimes significantly longer. It doesn't sound like much, but when you add them all up the waiting is excruciating and really discourages me from spending too much time browsing. (And yes, I have Fios with a typical download speed of 150MB. I don't have problems like this with any other website.)

Please fix this!

P.S. - I'm using Chrome 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit)

Thanks for the feedback, we are aware of the issue and are working on fixing it as soon as possible.

I'm glad it's not just me!


Seems to have gone back to original speed. Well done!


It hasn't gone back to original speed for me. I still get consistently long (order of minutes) response times on messageboard pbp link clicks, sprinkled with "website did not respond" Chrome bad news pages.

This is frustrating because when trying to run pbps, I open Scrivener for my workspace, Maptools for my map images, the PDF of the AP, several PRD pages for monsters and spells, then try to preview my initial gameplay post to get the die results to figure out what's happening. That's seems to be when things go wonky and I can't post at all. After a few "server timed out" pages, I shut everything down and move on.

I also had a recurrence of an old, old problem that should have been fixed long ago. I tried to edit a gameplay (non-GM) post to correct a typo. Instead of updating the post, the board created a second post with new die rolls and the corrections. I was able to delete the second post eventually.

Last night, I was reviewing a pbp page from my tablet. After the last post, a bunch of text from many pages back was displayed, all merged with the last post of the gameplay thread.

The slow RT doesn't seem to be at any particular time of day, but it's been consistently inconsistent for a week or two now. If you need links to any of the problem posts listed above, let me know.

Good Morning Treppa... I'll look into this this morning and see what can be done. Thanks for letting us know...

And of course, it's been working well since I posted this. Ain't it always the way?
