Site Slowness?

Post by YoungWolf777 » Wed Dec 05, 2018 10:36 pm

I've had super slow response times for BTown for the past 3 days. I checked my bandwidth, cleared caches, etc. Nothing helps. It's slow from my phone as well. I don't have the long response times from other sites. Just checking to see if it's just me or are others having issues as well? It seems to be related to the https. Maybe the security certificate? The hang up usually shows "Establishing secure connection" down in the bottom bar of Chrome.

Thanks.

I haven't experienced anything like that. I'm using Firefox and Safari.

Tried with Firefox and I get something similar: "Performing a TLS handshake with www.bartertown.com"

I thought it might be because I work from home via VPN, but I get the same thing when I disconnect the VPN.

Tried with Safari and get the same lag, just no message.

Each page does eventually load, just after a 3~8 second delay. Man, we're spoiled these days if I'm complaining about 3 seconds. :D

You cursed me. Now it's taking a couple seconds to load each page.

Nope.. at 'peak' usage times, it's always slow.
Today, the 1st page was fast and then the rest...slow.

Odd. I haven't had issues, myself, at work or home... and I'm on at all hours of the day.

Like kturock says, though, peak usage times WILL cause some delays.
Any idea of approximate times you guys have been having these issues?

Thanks.

Lower rating? You ship first.

I think what this situation needs is some imagination.

It's mostly during the workday. Right now things load immediately. (8:40 pm MST)

I've been seeing the same thing. Very slow in the morning for me... like 8 am through 11 am Eastern, and real slow in the afternoons, around 3 pm to 7 pm Eastern.
US Trades Only, please! International shipping is just getting too expensive.
The object of a game is to win. The point of a game is to have fun.
My trading rules:
1. Lower rating ships first, unless we agree otherwise.
2. Delivery confirmation is required on all US trades.
3. I will not mark an international package as a "gift". It's a felony, so please don't ask.
