Why is this Website so slow?

I'm sure this has been asked hundreds of times at this point, but I haven't really gotten a consistent and solid answer. When I click a thread, it often takes minutes to load, only to tell me there's a data base error. When I try to post, it loads and loads then decides that my post isn't worthy to be posted and says an error has occurred, so I try posting again. After refreshing 900 times, it turns out that I've double posted. There are also really slow hours where the site just does not work, and it continuously crashes. What's up? It's not my internet either, and I've tried browsing with adblock on, and the ridiculous speed is still in effect. I've tried different computers on numerous days and even different peoples' internet. This seems to be a very widespread issue as well, and it's becoming very irritating. I don't think I've ever used a website in my life that ran so slowly with so many errors. If there's something that I can do on my part, I would love to know. This seems to be occurring more recently as well.

    Nice signature.

    Also, I have the same issue. This site runs terribly. Not sure why.

    I'd like to blame XenForo, but I don't think that's the right answer.

    Off hours when no one at all is posting, the site loads as one would expect it to, basically instantly. But the majority of the time, it's sluggish, times out constantly (often takes 10 or so attempts to even manage to "like" a post) and then when it suddenly decides to work for a minute or two, *BAM* quadruple posts. There has to be something that can be done about it.

    For me, it's no coincidence that since SRK went and 'upgraded' their ads, things have become vastly slower. I never remember having this probably last year. Especially when MVC3 came out and it got really busy. But since SRK implemented these news ads, I've had atrocious slow down, pages that won't load at ALL and sometimes the main site won't be accessible. It also seems to work like a train schedule. IE, at one point, specifically 4PM in the UK, SRK WON'T work. Period. I do blame the ads for such slowdown and the vast number of bots which have appeared over the last few months. They really do need to look at where this website is going, as right now it really can be a pain to do the simplest of tasks. Such as image quoting, loading pages, replying to other posts and just general access to the website.

    I know you did that on purpose, but even so, point well made.

    If it really is just an inability to handle larger traffic flows, then it shouldn't be a difficult fix. Hopefully whatever it is will be fixed soon.

    This xenforo layout has been a disaster ever since it was implemented. There's ads, the site is slow as fuck, and server errors popping all over the place.

    I don't speak for all the old heads here, but plz bring back the "no ads" perk as part of the premium package. That was a BIG deal.

    I think I've found the problem (or at least part of it). SRK is hosted on registrar-servers aka namecheap, and their hosting is widely known to be ass.

    I'll have times where I just don't even bother to try browse. It will get that bad that I'll just throw in the towel and do something else, if I try load anything it's more likely I'll get an error than something constructive actually happening.

    A few other FG sites use this same forum software without these issues. Avatars take like 10 minutes to change while the other sites are basically instant as well.

    Thank you, Rokmode. :rofl:

    Yeah, it's been terrible for awhile now, and even gotten much worse during these later months. When I first joined here on the SRK, the site oddly wasn't so bad; at least for once I could actually post/like with ease in mind. Maybe its due to trafficking from other sites, too many active threads, and/or this server in general. Who knows...

    Site is a big pile of steaming monkey turd lately. I click like, I get an error. I click reply, I get an error. I try to go back to the home page, I get an error. And changing avatars is a hassle that's not even worth dealing with at this point. Sometimes I'll try to change mine and it'll go to a picture I used to have as my av months ago. Shit doesn't make any sense.

    The loading times are randomly atrocious too. Sometimes the page will just sit there blank for almost half an hour before anything will even load. :bluu:

    Yeah, I usually don't have problems with srk, but latelly it's really annoying. This I tried to log in - I couldn't even get to the forum. I went on doing something else.

    I'm not that pretentious, but when you're waiting 10 min to load a pg...it's like the dark ages of internet.

    Edit - I tried to post this - 1st try - error.:(

    To me whenever I click "post reply", it usually gets the error message, and it doesn't matter how many times I click it, 70% of the time I get the same message and the worst part is that it sometimes results in double posts or even triple (note that sometimes I only click the post reply button and for some reason it gets a double post).

    Takes too long to go to pretty much any page of any thread too, but I believe everyone is having this problem as well.
    Weeks ago... I was playing Marvel vs Capcom 3. I was just training, standing at the wooden platform, floating on the river of the Demon Village. I was at the end of this path the platform was going, after that it went further, and I came to a cemetery, and there was a lake. Very secluded, and there were tall trees all around. The music stopped playing. It was dead silent. Gorgeous... and across the lake I saw from far away... a beautiful blue woman, standing in front of the lake... but she was crying...

    Literally 5 minutes after posting the site went down for about 20 minutes (I was trying to post in the 3S subforum) then it came back up and I swear this page took the longest to load. This is the first time I was able to get in in almost 30-40 minutes.
