Was having trouble with the gamesTM forum earlier, may be server related?

There have been a few over the past 2 weeks especially at tea time when it seems the volume of internet traffic is pretty high!

Yeah, loads of slow down - 2 nights ago I couldn't get on the forum for about 2 hours (midnight to 2am) so not exactly busy times!

Yeah it never seems to be at a regular busy time of the day when it goes down. I'm 5 hours behind most of you guys so this place tends to be dead after 7ish my time and it tends to have diffuclties later at night.

I suppose they could be working on the servers if there are other issues at that time

That or the amount of spam bots trying to access the forum could be rife at that time also

Just an occasional bit of slowdown for me, particularly - for some reason - at around midnight each night I'm on here. Nothing too severe, though.

Yeah I have had a few occasions recently where it hasn't allowed me to connect to the site, usually late on in the evening.

It has also been very slow at times.

I've been unable to connect to the site a few times in the last few days and around midnight most nights it craps out for 10 minutes or so.
