Not a complaint at all as I realise this is a self financing site done for the love of it, but in case the owners and admins hadnt realised, the site puzzles are running very slowly. Occassionally I get a fast response for a few minutes, but normally its between 5 and 10 seconds per response from pressing submit to receiving a response. I have been mainly playing the Say What riddles, and a few of the other contests such as Halloween, Around the World in 80, Movie Premiere. They all show the same slow response.

The forum seems fine. Its just the contests.

I think this might be an anomaly caused by individual connection speeds. For instance, I have just gone through a few puzzles in the Say What Movie contest and each page is loading for me in 1-2 seconds. Certainly some puzzles will take slightly longer to load due to their content, and in general the forum will be quick because it is mostly text based (albeit with a fair amount of database lookup). Also if you are located outside the UK (which is where our server is based) then this might introduce delays.

What I can say is there shouldn't be any inherent difference between forum and contests since everything resides on and is accessed from the same server.

Is this a 'just today' thing for you or has it always been the case?

I'm in the UK, and on a 10 meg Virgin fibre link. Speeds on my net browsing are good. I've been on the Puzzletome site for a week or so and at first it was lightning quick, pretty much instant response, but last 3-4 days I have been experiencing these slow response times, rest of my net browsing is fine. Pccassionally the site is as fast as it ever was, but then will slow again.

I cant see that the content would cause this as the pages are tiny. I suspect more likely its a database thing.

Whatever, am enjoying the site and puzzles, just thought I oughta to mention that I have experienced these slow downs.
