Is there a reason why Vgchartz is unusually slow as of late?

Forums - Website Topics - Is there a reason why Vgchartz is unusually slow as of late?

Definitely the site has been pretty slow for the past couple of months. 503 errors, sql errors, even 404 errors. Today it's taking me between 10-15 seconds for each page to load.

ioi just explained again in his recent embed code thread that he posted today what is going on and how long it will take to remedy.

Minutes to load a page and  503 errors. The same things are happening to me.

Today, this site is slow to the point where it's unusable. It's had issues before but I've never seen it this bad. I'm using Firefox, btw.


Using adblock and disabling sigs should help your speed on this site.

Same thing happened to me a couple of minutes ago. I was trying to post on the Dark Souls thread and I would either get 503s or it would take over a minute to load. It seems to come in waves, these access problems.

The site has always been relatively slow, especially compared to other gaming sites and it also means I visit it less and less.

The barrage of images and (switching) ads don't really help. I can understand needing to earn a buck, but hell...



Apparently the site has moved to a smaller server. Combined with the disappearance of the data and charts, I'd say this site is slimming down to being a small dedicated site instead of the huge money printing machine some hoped it would become.

They are eventually splitting the site up to make people happy. And a server has been going down, so they have been working on transfering everything over and changing them out. ioi said it would take about a month. I guess nothing you can do about it!

What do you mean? I thought those were in Pro now, they still have them right?
