There are times of slowness, glitches and spam but those are times when the opportunity to step away from the computer screen becomes abundantly clearer.

Sure it's not your internet connection or your browser?

I don't have any problems usually unless I have many pics in my posts.

Sometimes is helps to switch browsers, close down a few tabs, or go get a cup of coffee when things seem sluggish in the rain.

AR is served by multiple servers.  The tech speak from someone that knows more about it than I do is the servers are supposed to balance the loads when any particular server is getting heavy usage (basically transfer accounts to another server).  For whatever reason, that doesn't always happen and the slow/Heavy Use messages go out.  We in ARMS don't have direct access, so we shoot up the red flares to our contact for him to contact the hosts/development people to go whack the server with the magic rubber mallet.

I will switch browsers, or sometimes it is my Internet provider that is slow for some repair reason.  Then I switch to the hot spot on my phone.  A

It took what felt like FOREVER to give everyone points this morning.

A possibility of what may be contributing to the problem (ARS may choose to comment) is users do not log off when they end their session. I know I don't and I suspect I'm not alone. It is possible AR kicks me off automatically and my browser logs me in to continue last session. I don't know, but today, things are painfully slow.  Let's not over look the possibility AR is under alien attack via a Denial of Service swarm.

Or the Oopa Loopas are working on this node.

I generally find that early morning and the middle of the day are when I have issues. This time of night, it runs like a top! Join us night owls and you won't run into overload issues!!

Maybe it is a timing problem. It is evening here which means late night for other parts of the Country. Maybe AR is not under Heavy Load now.

I had a West coast rental site. It acted that way. My IT wanted me to get more resources to allow higher traffic and have 1 node north and 1 near LA. Although AR has repeatly denied it, w/o showing the contract to us.  I suspect it is a very small server hidden somewhere in Wash in KW office LB means low budget production. At 2 AM PST it acts that way too I can tell you few will be on it.
