Had a convo with our Senior Product Manager responsible for digital things, and he tells me a table in the site database has corrupted, causing it to increase to many times the size it should be – hence the slowdown. A fix is being worked on, which should hopefully speed things up, I'm told.
In the meantime, ongoing apologies – we are very much in the hands of the people with pens in their top pockets on this one.

FWIW, I've noticed that WHF? sibbling PistonHeads.com is pretty much glitch-free - different software?
54.57 seconds to bring up an active topic atm...........how sad is that, I've actually timed it!

I'm not having any problems. Am I alone????
Of course, the result of last month's Humax competition is taking 4 weeks to load, so 43.9846584645444874 seconds isn't too bad.
Slow, slow, slow!

What is the problem with the website? I am on iPad 2. It is very slow, my posts get deleted halfway through.
Yes, it was painfully slow earlier I agree (I'm trying to post stories from my room at the Bristol Show, with some difficulty), but it seems to have speeded up again.

Yep, it is getting a bit better again now, are there glitches or something? And that is what causes posts to be deleted while you are posting?
And it's terribly slow right now.
Don't know what's causing posts to be deleted, won't be able to do anything about that right now I'm afraid as we're all at the Bristol Show until Sunday night. Sorry. Speed may be due to some of the ads loading, but will need to investigate further.
Excellent - thanks.
Site is really slow again today. Takes ages to get into posts and to post anything.
I've been having probs today too (31st March).
Couldn't get in at all on a couple of occasions!
EDIT just seen the sticky...
