Title: How happy are you with the new host?
Post by: nicklegends on August 07, 2011, 03:33:56 PM
This is a just to get a sense of how happy people are with the uptime/downtime ratio and similar things. The poll will run for a month, and you can change your vote at any time.

EDIT: I removed the time limit since there were a number of switches since this topic was started. Instead, we'll use the poll as a sort of thermometer of how the forum is doing.

So far, so good...but it's only been a few hours. We'll see how it goes as time progresses... ;)

At first, I was a 4. Now I'm a 3. Right now, the site is running kind of slow for me, but I don't know if it's because of my internet or not. However, I haven't experienced any downtime at all. For now, I'm neutral.

I'm down to a 3 now because we're STILL having downtime...
Title: Re: How happy are you with the new host?
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on August 11, 2011, 05:35:00 PM
Yeah, gotta say 3, for the same reasons.

Well, I haven't experienced it since the switch.  The forum has loaded slowly on occasion, but otherwise...

"So far, so good... so what"; I'm obliged to say. :P I've not experienced any downtime so far, but the site has refused to load at one point (I got a blank screen with the URL as the title of the tab) and there was some pretty slow loading last night. Nothing more serious - or nothing more, for that matter - yet. I'll go with a four, but like others, might drop down to three should I experience downtime.

Well things have been going well, albeit pretty slowly, and at least I can access the forum now. I'll give a four, but it may drop to three if problems arise.

Changing my vote to 2. If this keeps up, then I'll change it to 1.

Well, it took some time to catch up to me, but since yesterday's downtime:

1. The site was loading slow for about two hours between 4 to 6.
2. The site was down for more than five hours between 6 to 11 (I have no idea how long more it went on for after I went to bed).
3. I am unable to load any page besides the homepage unless I use a proxy, and without one, the homepage loads with no images.

Going down to a three.

Just changed my vote to 1. This downtime and site lag is absolutely ridiculous. :x
Title: Re: How happy are you with the new host?

Experienced the most ridiculous downtime ever. Changing my vote to a 2
Title: Re: How happy are you with the new host?
Post by: The Bandit King on August 15, 2011, 01:13:26 PM
I'm down to a 2 as well. This new host is turning out to be worse than ever...

Look at the poll line's at the top of this page right now. It looks like someone is giving the middle finger. :lol:

That describes how I feel about this new host.
Title: Re: How happy are you with the new host?
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on August 15, 2011, 05:46:50 PM
Yup, also just experienced some downtime. Down to a 2, and you're right about the poll, PP319. :P

Three days in a row with insanely long bouts of downtime.  I realize that most members aren't active around that time of day, but it's still very inconvenient for the rest.  At least on the old host, it didn't exclusively occur in one massive concentrated time slot.

A lot of texts from a couple of posts are missing, and I wanna see that text!  :x

We all do...but TSM is probably working on it as we speak.

At least, I hope he is...

Yeah, I hope TSM didn't give up and say fuck it.

If TSM did change servers like he said, it's cut down on the downtime immensely. I'm changing my vote to a 3 for now, but if any downtime occurs, I'm back to square 1.

Yes, it is a new server, hence the ads at the bottom. They actually offer a plan that doesn't require ads, but the one that does had more space and bandwidth available, which is why I chose it.

Of course, if you're bothered by the ads, you can always install Adblock.

Are you still going to keep the arcade down?
Title: Re: How happy are you with the new host?
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on August 27, 2011, 07:23:20 PM
I'm also gonna change my vote back to 3. Of course that is subject to change.

I might bring it back if we don't experience any lag or downtime in the next day or two.

Hey All, don't forget to use the Forum Jump if you want to go to another Board. It would help reduce our bandwidth and the demand on our Forum

2, because it's laggy, and some pictures don't show up.
Title: Re: How happy are you with the new host?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on November 23, 2011, 07:49:22 PM
I'm now going from a 3 to a 4. Things are better now. :)

5.

I haven't noticed any signs of lagging or downtime in three months now! And even with the Chat and Arcade, the site is running smoothly.

I'm also changing my vote from a 3 to a 4. Things have been running very smoothly lately. :D

Chaned my vote to 5 too.

No sign of lagging or downtime for me either...I also bumped my vote up to 4.
