RPOL Super Slow?
Admins can you poke the provider. Getting some huge delays when trying to ping the rpol servers.

It's functional but pages that should be loading instantaneously are taking upwards of 30 seconds or longer to load. Might be a sign of instability in the server requiring a refresh/restart. I don't actually have any clue what your backend is, just raising awareness.

Yes. It's so slow it is affecting reality around me.

My pocket atomic chronometer is already 1.37 seconds behind.

The main page still loads quickly for me, but everything else takes far longer than normal. Haven't had a timeout yet, but I keep expecting one with how long pages sometimes take.

Can confirm similar issues; got a 502 error message on the responsive site and loading the page for this answer took about 43 seconds, even if the note at the bottom says "generated in 0.072 seconds".

Also, I feel like mentioning that the responsive version of the site (which I've been using almost exclusively for the last month) has been giving me the same problem, in case that might be relevant.

I was in the middle of a post when the "slowness" started. Approx. 11:15-11:30 today, Eastern US time. It was fine till then.

I'm sure it's just the servers backing up their data to the cloud... what could go wrong?

Plenty of '502' errors here.

Front page loads as normal, game pages are very slow.  Posting/updating is very slow, and often generates a '502 Bad Gateway' error.

I've started to notice this issue returning, especially bad in the last few days.  In fact the first time I was going to respond to this thread it actually gave me the 502 error.   :)

Anyway, I hope that there is something that can be done to get us back to the quick actions we normally have.

Maybe Server is updating, I am not sure that my PC isn't slowing down to though with the crap I keep on it. LOL  502 Errors here.  It'll be fine soon enough though.

Seems to be coming and going.

I was noticing RPoL listing a "render" time at the bottom of most pages that weren't the home page of 4-10 seconds when it was going "slow".

Typically that comes back with a time of less than 1 second.

Right now it's at about 2-3 seconds for me.
