Silly question if only posed to people reading this, but can you check with your friends, please? Just see if they can open AVForums.com Home.
If not, please let me know here.
Thanks.

Working fine for me but is a little slow, page seems to load progressively, sometimes needs a refresh to give it a bit of a shunt... something isn't right. Someone on the facebook page seems to be having problems with loading too, pinging is fine but they don't get anything loading.

Can get onto AVF, but like the others it is very slow to load pages the last day or two.

Very slow yesterday for me, not too bad today but still not as quick as it usually is. Thought it was just my broadband playing up.

HI,

Working fine here, today and yesterday, but occasionally pages didn't/won't load properly in Firefox or IE8, and would/will need an F5 refresh to get them to load in full.

It went slow on my phone yesterday. I think the sites graphics make cellphones weep.

I was blocked out for about 1/2 an hour there - trying to view general chat got a 'page not found' page.

I've had a couple of "unavailable because the archive is offline" (or similar) messages when trying to get on, both today and yesterday.

I think it might have been due to high traffic levels with the iPhone 4 prices being announced yesterday/today. The Apple site was down as well.

There are a couple of dodgy queries which when run (which is rare) are bringing the database down.It happened three times I think on Saturday. Things should have been ok yesterday.
The person unable to get to the site today is ok after a further database crash an hour ago.

I am now able to get on, as I said on Facebook. It's not been working all day until about half hour ago.

I struggled today, and directly after the England match finished - 9:30PM on Saturday.

I too was unavailable to view the forums about 4.30.

Been having some issues with the homepage in IE8, which persisted after a delete cache and a ctrl-F5 - which is unusual (it's usually because something has changed, so clearing the cache does the trick) - I put it down to the new menu or a wonky flash ad though.

Ctrl-F5 is an awesome trick btw, only discovered it a short while ago and I've worked in IT for years!

We will be back as soon as possible.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
