    Okay, - site has now transferred over and running on a new server. There were major issues with the database and quite a few other things which I won't bore you with.

    I know it's been really painful and pretty hard to deal with but hopefully, fingers crossed it's sorted now and running at speed.

    Thanks to all those who weren't dicks about things but some of the other comments weren't appreciated that much either.

    Just remember this site has been going for 20 years and this is really the first time it shat itself well and truly.

    Enjoy.

    I have missed my daily sharetrader fix over the last few weeks.

    Thanks Vince, much appreciated! Great to see things running well again, was really starting to suffer withdrawal symptoms!

    Good to see the website up and running again ... only if one misses the chat around the watercooler (or the coffee machine) one realizes how useful it can be :

    Thanks Vince for the heads up and a big thank you to the helping hands in the background to get this forum back to life.

    Only one small thing ... if the forum should go again (heavens forbid) through a similar phase ... communication is key. Would it be possible to get next time during the outage at least some sort of acknowledgement of the issues and an idea what's going on (like server under maintenance and we plan to be back by dd.mm.yy hh:mm)?

    Earlier in the week it sort of felt that the forum might be gone forever and posters might need to look for alternatives. I hope they didn't.

    Feels like sharetrader.co.nz developed some sort of "morning sickness". Down yesterday am and today am as well for some hours.

    Just wondering - will it be a boy or a girl?

    Seriously - any chance we could get an update on what's happening?

    this site remains very slow for me. Other websites respond quickly this one takes a long long time.
    I dont think it is just me either.

    I am just saying so that you know - in case you dont.
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    1.8min to load this page.

    improves the time on site metrics I guess?

    ...I am beginning to think that it uses some software I have written.

    Still slow, intermittently speeds up but generally crappy speed for some reason. One of my favourite sites to fritter away my working day when working.

    some further feedback ...

    The response of this website has recently been better... sometimes....
    but (esp today) still erratic and slow , sometimes worse, sometimes marginally acceptable. but rarely good.


    I'm not sure if its useful or not but as an end user my view is that google ads are taking too much time to 'work' , as evidenced by this showing for a while during refreshes....

    and also that anything search related on the website is very slow....


    If resources are an issue then you need to take this to management and get funding. Plenty of people would pay if it meant a better functioning website.
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    Agreed Peat, giving up on the site for the night. Sometimes good, sometimes not... regularly annoying.
    Maybe tomorrow will be better, who knows?
    All day today has been cringingly slow on mobile and PC.
    Like you and others have suggested, happy to make a contribution if that's what it takes to get over whatever problems are going on here.

    I am running the Firefox 89.0.1 (64 bit) browser on a Kubuntu 20.04 platform (Kubuntu is a form of linux). The way my system is set up it has an ad blocker on it. I didn't set up the ad blocker myself. It is just the way this particular version of Kubuntu comes as standard. I am having all the sporadic connection problems you describe Peat. So while the google ads may not be helping things, I don't think the server problems will be fixed by axing the google ads.
