Slow

Is it just me, or has iSpot been really, really slow for the last couple of days? Other websites seem OK.

Slow

I would agree...it has been taking forever to load pages, while no problem on other sites.

slow

Agree, site seems very slow. I'm on holiday and wi-fi dependent - initially thought I had bad connection, but other sites OK. Had to give up trying to upload some photos as system 'timed-out' as upload taking too long.

YEs

Its been slow for a few days.

Seems better today

Not having to wait so long! Wish there was a way to tell us when there are problems.

Been a dog

It has been a dog on he ZA site as well. Up to a third of he observations opened fail to open. Had just assumed it was an undersea cable problem, but other international sites dont seem to have this problem.

Me Too

I don’t normally have an issue with speed, even when others are experiencing problems, but even I’m beginning to notice it now.

Sheer volume of traffic?

Having no special interest, I don't filter the observations; and over the last year or so I've noted the number of new ones posted every day has grown enormously.
Maybe it's the uploading of so many photos that's overloading the system?

Amadan's picture

It has worsened for me -

Over the last 48 hours or so. Almost unusable at times, I'm afraid.

Like a snail..

..taking forever to do anything at the moment. Five minutes to register that I'd clicked "I agree"!
What's up, site administrators?

Not just slow at the moment, very slow...almost unusable, in fact.

Perhaps it is because everyone has a moth trap and a camera, these days...

Particularly slow this evening. Unable to load pages at all for a while.

Thanks to the administrator who shot that particular gremlin.

Slow again

Unbearably slow again today, when all my other sites are fine. Seems to be happening more often in recent weeks.

Edit: And it has done this...repeated my postings...on two occasions - in spite of only a single click.

Getting a bit fed up with it, to be honest.

Agreed

It is intolerably slow again. Whatever the issue is it needs a permanent solution.

Quick Quick Slow (alt. Slow slow quick)

This speed issue seems very variable. I closed the page down came back on five minutes later and it was perfectly fine, perhaps not Bolt but certainly Dasaolu. This morning it’s marginally sluggish again.

I wish iSpot would respond to this issue

I thought it was me last night, as I was uploading to Dropbox at the same time, but still slow this morning.
I would really like to see some response to this, even if it's just "We know there's an issue, sorry guys!".

Unusable

Click an observation and go for a wander around the garden and it might have loaded when you get back... I thought it might be my browser but everything else is fine. This seems to be an ongoing problem, does it affect all users?

DavidHowdon's picture

Slower than a tortoise in treacle

Seems to be getting worse. Also now frequent 502 errors.

Ray Turner's picture

More Slow

Yet again very slow tonight. Started slow when I logged on early evening and has just got slower and slower, to the point where I’m not going to bother any more tonight.

I echo those who are starting to notice the lack of response from the iSpot team. This is plainly an ongoing issue and is raising the largest body of complaints (now the quiz has been sorted) and yet we hear nothing. Even if there is no immediate solution at least tell us this, any sort of explanation/dialogue would be nice.

No change

I was going to post to say how much better the site was running, but it's well and truly back to form tonight. Off to do something else!

sort

I have had more than my share of duplicate entries - not just posts but comments too.
And I have left quite a lot of messages about deletions of duplicates for others, mostly newcomers.
The issue for me is a slow UPload speed. I think my uploads go into some sort of waiting area because, even when I cancel, say after a 5 minute wait, it goes on to be posted. If I haven't assumed this, (or sensibly close and open again) then I will get a double post or comment (in one case FOUR!). Comments cannot be deleted but posts can.
I did get a message from Admin to say they are going to sort it soon.
But this is a problem all over the Internet at certain times.
