    The connection has timed out
    The server at www.thestudentroom.co.uk is taking too long to respond.

    Thanks for reporting this. I've passed your comments on. Seems like it's taking time to pin-point where the problem actually is.

    But please do keep on reporting issues you have. Also, if the site ever looks strange or you see error messages, then screengrabs showing the problems/messages would help

    It's kinda hit and miss what happens to a page. It loads properly most of the time, sometimes it decides mangling the page is a great idea (I assume because some elements aren't loading - screenshot next time) and sometimes it just goes for a coffee break and does nothing (i.e. times out).

    Aye we had the problems here again too. The dev guy who's monitoring this is currently in a call with guys here in the TSR office and will look at what his monitoring reports show after the call. Let's hope it shows something up

    Really slow for me atm and I just got this:

    "Proxy Error

    The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server.
    The proxy server could not handle the request POST /newreply.php.

    Reason: Document contains no data"

    It's just gone really slow for me again. Some pages are timing out, others giving a proxy error, and everything taking ages to load.

    Same as. Page dies for a bout 5 seconds for me. Click re-load and back to normal pace...

    I believe Canada have found a spike and are looking into it though.
