Thanks,

I sent you an email with a couple screen shots from firebug. Let me know what else I can do to help.

As for this morning, I did some quick testing and all seem fine and fast for me. Can you provide the info found at the bottom of the page that looks like this:

Also please include your location and Internet provider. If you are uncomfortable post it, please send it to me via email or PM (that is actually preferred).

thanks for the feedback.

update: I believe intermittent morning slowdowns may be the result of the overnight backups...I'll look at addressing that.

To help isolate the issues if you could answer the poll question and answer the following questions for each internet provider/location you access the forums it would be a great assistance. Please post the results below or send me a PM (VW Derf). When I have enough answers I will note at the bottom of this thread and close the topic.

TDIClub has seen unprecedented traffic recently, which is probably the main reason for the slowdown. We beat an all-time number of simultaneous accesses a few days ago and I'm sure we'll hit new records on a regular basis going forward:

If you don't like the slowness, donate to upgrade the servers and network infrastructure.

I have noticed a big increase in guest traffic lately. It seems that for every 4 or 5 registered users viewing a thread, there are commonly 10 guests or more!

Site is slow again this afternoon.

Seems to be slow in the evenings as of late - usually between 9pm and 11pm Eastern. I'm not sure if it's an issue with updates (I noticed it was down for an hour or so last night) or high traffic loads when everyone is home, or...?

Newbie here, and the site was definitely freezing up (i.e. pages not loading) for me at least yesterday, if not sooner.
