No noticeable change to the page loading issue, but it seems like I have fewer problems earlier in the day (~3am site time), maybe it's worse when more people are active.

Still bad lag and occasional disconnects in the coli and fairgrounds.

I'm still having the same issues. I'd say the site works fine about 75% of the time, but hangs/needs to be refreshed about 25%. It's in various places - my hoard, baldwin, coli, etc. I use both firefox and chrome (but lately, mostly chrome)

I've had slow flight rising too. Both on my own computer and on school's computer. Nesting grounds in UNBEARABLY slow. I couldn't put a pair on nest this morning because when I left it to load the whole page went black and wouldn't go back to normal. Refreshing resulted in chrome butting in saying the page is not responding fast enough.

School has Win 8 and chrome, I have Win 10 and chrome. Latest versions

still having trouble with this. i've checked to make sure it's not me, and still on any device/wifi/lte, there's occasional "lagging" that goes nowhere till i refresh the page. it happened as i was loading this thread, actually :P and a user profile as well, so it's not confined to the forums. it's not too terrible of a bug, but i keep thinking my wifi's going out or something, but then other sites are still working as usual

to add: i'm typing this on safari. 've not tried other browsers yet, but looks like it'll be the same result, according to everyone else

I really wonder what is causing this. I've had no problems at all with Chrome and win 10 at home with fast internet (Northern Europe). Until today some really minor lag in marketplace (Familiar market) and at the start when I went to Coliseum. It's so weird that the lag is affecting only some people and not all. How am I not getting lag almost at all and someone else has it so bad that they can't play FR at all [emoji=spiral sad size=1]

an update;

ever since the forum fix I've still been experiencing lags and pages just flat out not loading, and I noticed yesterday that coli was particularly laggy for me, with images not loading or moves taking a while to send. At a certain point my ping showed as 50k even tho I was browsing other websites and watching Netflix just fine (and I did test my ping when that happened, was around 100ms when pinging google).

this happens on dragon profiles and user profiles as well; I've also noticed sometimes dragon images won't load or cause the page to load slower (on bios, my lair, PA listings, coliseum)

I highly doubt this is an ISP issue as I keep seeing people from the US or Europe in the thread and I'm from Brazil, so completely different ISP lol not to mention I've tried on two different ISPs, plus LTE (which, in a way, can be considered a third ISP option) and had issues on all of them. I've tried setting my DNS to google's free DNS, tried without any DNS, tried with cloudfare's DNS, all had the same issue. It could be something in between FR's servers and our ISPs though I suppose?

I'm using Windows 10 (probably not latest version as I have updates disabled) and Chrome on my laptop, Android 9 and Opera Mobile on my phone.

I've also tried it out and experienced this same issue on Ubuntu 18.04 using Firefox and Chrome, and Windows 7 using Chrome.

Just a brief update on where we are today:

So far, two Flight Rising engineers (including myself) have been able to replicate this issue reliably. The specific issue we are seeing on our end is that sometimes requests to the server hang in the middle of transmission, leaving a page loading forever. Refreshing the page will often then work perfectly. This seems to be consistent with a number of the reports in this thread.

From our first hand experiences, it seems like this affects both www1 and non-www1 pages, and it seems like sometimes it affects loading the HTML of the page itself, but other times it affects other resources such as images (e.g. a Fairgrounds loading progress bar might stop entirely.)

While we don't think this is limited to a single ISP at this point, it does seem to be somewhat ISP dependent, as (for example) it happens to me reliably over cellular but it doesn't happen over wired home internet.

It is possible that there is some dependence on the latency/bandwidth of the connection, or the specific physical path through the Internet it takes to our servers, which would vary depending on how you are connecting.

It does not seem to be browser dependent, as I have seen it on both Chrome and Firefox mobile personally.

We are running more tests today to see if we can pin down what is happening and where it is happening. I will continue to provide updates with our findings. Thanks everyone for your patience!

So far, it seems whatever you did the first time around has fixed my lag problems across the board. In both the forums, lair and in the coli.

Browser: Firefox
Operating System: Windows 10
ISP: Comcast
