Quick update: I've done everything I can do (short of completely disabling Cloudflare) and my hosting company has done everything it can do at this point to improve server response time when posting.

While I think complete disablement of Cloudflare would help greatly, it would make the Buzzboard far more vulnerable to outside attack. That's a risk I'm simply not wiling to take.

Server responsiveness isn't as poor as it was - so progress has been made. In the weeks ahead, I will continue to search for ways to further improve response time when posting.

Regards,

M.W.
the latency issues have been pretty minor in the last week.

Let's hope it stays that way. :)

I was actually going to ask about that. I noticed it often took forever for a post to complete once "submit" was clicked. I do not experience that on other phpBB forums, so I'd say it's 100% at the host end. There have been maybe 3 times where I received a "gateway timeout" error when posting.

Seems as fast as other phpBB sites now though!

WRT GoDaddy... I ran a couple servers with them several years back. Never had any major issues, but I cannot speak for them now. And I ran a 64 player Quake 3 Arena server, not the most taxing, but required fast server response. I also had a Teamspeak and Shoutcast server running on it simultaneously.


I confirm all my information through a high, white whore's souse!

This issue has reappeared in the past few days.

I'm looking into it and would like to thank everyone for your patience.

30+ secs to post a simple 3-liner in FireFox @ ~4:20pm today.

Doesn't bother me. Just thought I'd let you know...
