    The problem is that you are guys are posting instead of playing. This is all done to encourage participation in your local communities as supposed to theoryfighting all day. Remember, the more time you spend playing, the less time SRK being wonky won't bother you.

    This site runs pretty bad on a daily basis. I assumed maybe it was my connection, but then I'd open up other tabs and they would load up fine.

    EDIT: It took about 3 tries to actually post this wtf? -_____-

    His name/handle is the only name many people can attach blame to, since his is the one that appears most often in the actual forums. I suppose it's serving one of its purposes by drawing attention away from the site's coders/actual server host.

    Anyway, this site does run terribly most of the time. A month or so ago, the site would run slowly at regular intervals, likely when bots were spamming the gd. Now the site seems slow almost consistently.

    I don't actually know what to vote. SRK is kind of a mixed bag for me. Back on my gaming PC, I never ever have any problems, which is weird. On my iPod or weaker PC's, low-trafficked threads with primarily text work perfectly fine. Larger threads however, with more posts and video embeds tend to lag like hell an crash altogether on my iPod, and seem more likely to produce errors in general.

    Interestingly enough, refreshing the page and scrolling directly down to where I want to like/quote/post and doing it as quickly as possible produces much more consistent results than notmal browsing. Basically, the longer I idle, the more errors I get. But my gaming PC, oddly enough, has no problems with the site.

    Maybe SRK should start running ads that say "Can't run this site? Upgrade your PC today!"

    Well there's my answer. Thanks for the update, at least.

    The loading is getting worse by the day.
    Today I went to open tech talk to check what was new, I went and took a shower, and I came back and the page still hadn't loaded.
    I really hope this gets resolved soon.

    look into http://www.hostgator.com/
    they are the best hosting in my opinion and have are one of the fastest hosts available (you can look it up too if you don't believe me). from my experience, they are very reliable with high traffic.

    I've noticed this weird behavior with SRK (maybe just xenforo in general) when going from 1 page to another where the page will load, but hang right before the page refresh for absurdly long. If I see the page change the title and url, I just close the tab and re open it, and the page loads instantly, instead of hanging there for 15 minutes waiting for the refresh. It's a tiresome workaround, but a workaround nonetheless.

    EDIT: I had to do it just now to see if my post actually showed up :arazz:

    I get a lot of unexpected database errors.

    I don't see why the server always seems so surprised - I've come to expect them all the time.

    I'm pretty much a nobody here, but I've been using the site since about 2005. Registered right around the time SF4 came out, and I've been logging on pretty much daily, not posting much, but reading to my heart's content in fighting game discussion and GD. I was considering upgrading to Premium lately, not for the benefits, but because, if a site out there deserves the cash, it's this one. Unfortunately, the recent server problems have made me reconsider.

    If your move to the new server does indeed fix things up, though, I will definitely be plunking down the money for premium. I'll be all over it faster than... Hm. Faster than rcaido jumps on his Asian wife. Yes, that analogy should do.

    Good news. I was in two minds whether to quote and like Mr. Wizard's comment, don't want to use up precious bandwidth.

    So come Jan, the site will be down for a while whilst everything get's upgraded. Must be a major headache for everyone involved.

    Guys, I just got a notice from Google Chrome saying content from b.localpages.com is giving this site malware.

    Even fucking Google Chrome has better anti-virus software than SRK... :shake:

    The fuck!? I've been trying to access this site all week wanting to create a thread ranting about how bad this site has become, I've gotten Database Errors and Failure to connect messages every single time I try to access this place. I'm glad to hear Wizard is actually trying to resolve the issue. Hopefully this message actually goes through, I'm more than likely going to hit another error screen, but on the slim chance it goes through, Sorry for the double post.
