    Okay I have been recently and quite frequently having problems with this site going down on me suddenly for a few hours and or lagging really bad when I post messages. I can understand if its alot of people experience this problem as that means the sites busy or blah. but what I wont to know is is it really the site doing this or it just me?

    It isn't just you! The site has been really laggy this week and today especially due to heavy traffic I presume. It seems to be getting a bit better now, so be patient and soon it should be running normal :]

    Edit: Also, if you are experiencing lag it really helps of you avoid refreshing the page because that puts extra stress on the server so do as Amanda suggested below and grab a snack or something to pass the time.

    It's not just you, don't worry. The site sometimes experiences downtimes, and this happens more frequently during high-traffic hours. This is completely normal and happens to everyone. If it ever happens, go out for a drink or a snack and come back to check every now and then. Hopefully PC will be up and running by the time you return. c:

        It's recently just lagged for me when posting a post. But I assume it's just due to the heavy traffic. Thank goodness it's not lagging when loading pages. Just when posting.

        Just posting to let you know that I've been experiencing it too!

          Out of curiosity, where does the supporter donation money go? Who is funding the server?

          The money you donate to the server goes to Rukario who funds the server and pays any server-related expenses.

          a lot of the recent lagging is due to connection floods and scans, etc. from exploited boxes..
          we try to block as many as we can but they have 1000's and we're limited to blocking 100's and, of course, when they connect they take up space / slots in Apache and system RAM and resources that would otherwise serve you your thread or post your reply.

          We do plan updating the server soon so a lot more traffic can be handled even when we're targeted by abusers.

            Hi Rukario, and thanks for your reply & everything you do for the site!

            That's crazy there is so much abuse. I thought it was hard to believe when many of the other pokemon sites were under DDoS attacks. What happened at a VGC event to make somebody ragequit so bad they started hacking poke sites? Who knows.

            Thanks again, looking forward to any potential upgrades. : )

              If you could, please show us the page of the site your browser is freezing in and which browser you're using to see if we can replicate this issue on our end.

              Personally, I haven't experienced any freezing with the site.. just the usual downtime and nothing more.
