The site slowdown tonight (Saturday night) is due to database load -- Saturday nights are one of our busiest times and we're still going to need to do some performance tweaks to our new setup over the next few days as we run into load issues. (Some problems only show up once all y'all start banging on the site!) We've made a few changes now that will improve things for some people, and will do a more permanent fix later on tonight or tomorrow morning once the traffic dies down, since doing it now would just increase database load.

Site performance may continue to be rocky on and off for the next few days until we get everything tuned the way it needs to be tuned -- thank you for your patience!

lol Go figure I just start getting back to using this website and I've got a slow Internet connection paired with a decade old high-end laptop and the site itself is slow. Actually, I never wouldn't noticed if I didn't read this! So nice to see the inner circle being so transparent and communicating everything with the rest of the userbase.
