    Yeah, OGB has been very slow lately.

    We had nearly 3 straight months of no performance issues fwiw... Saturday was bad but again ended up being an issue with routing on our hosts side I think. Was able to resolve via a ticket w/ them.

    I'm sure the 3 mos with no issues is quantifiable. Anecdotally this site takes longer to load than any other site I visit. Doesn't matter if it was my several year old phone, my new phone on 5G, laptop, my wifi, or any other source.

    All the time though? or just some threads? or what? I'd be really interested to see you post the output on your network perf tab in dev tools on Chrome/FF.

    Loading this thread on this board just now, I got 1.5 seconds load, finished all assets in about 2 seconds.. comparing with another forum I sometimes read.. that loaded in 1.7 seconds, 2.5 overall for all assets. So we're in the same ballpark. Pulled up a subreddit and it took 1 second to load DOMcontent (after it had been cached, 3 seconds first time around), 2 seconds for full load. Twitter was 1.5 load, 4 second total. I can keep going but I think you get the point.

    When this site is going slow, it is usually a routing issue to our hosts OR the machine itself they have our server on having issues with CPU/memory (and, I think, sometimes ultra mega big threads will just load much slower because they're having to pull so much from the DB). I can usually get those things fixed but there is a lag time for reporting/having them look into it. In an ideal world we'd be self-hosted on AWS running all the best CDN via cloudfront so you don't have to make a roundtrip around the world to fetch an avatar PNG, but that's more time than any of us have to manage and maintain that setup. The alternative is finding a new host, which I'd like to do, but man that is one of the shittiest parts of the internet trying to figure out which ones are legitimate and will provide high uptime plus responsive service.

    fair. and, for the record, its not every single time i suppose. obviously the large threads but enough others that it feels... random-ish but regular enough to be noticeable.

    The large threads definitely cause loading problem. Maybe we need to set a thread size limit as a performance stop gap?
