    Default Can't Visit UsingEnglish Normally from China

    Dear Mod, I can't visit your website normally in these two days. My internet connection speed is very slow all the time, even sometimes I even fail to access it. Now, I access it with the aid of proxy. I can visit other foreign-based websites normally, such as CNN, Daily Mail, etc. Another forumite here from China has confirmed he has the same problem. So I basically rule out it might be my own problem. Could you please check? Thanks in advance! Have a nice day! Best Regards, TD

    Really? You responded to me that this site can be slow at times. I can't access it normally now. I visit here by proxy. :( What's wrong? I can quickly open other foreign webpages.

    If they're working on the site, it'll be slow.

    Who are they? But why does it work quickly if I use proxy?

    "They" are Red5 and Tdol.

    (Could the problem reside with your internet provider?)

    Probably? I can access US-based: CNN, Washington Post; New York Time; UK-based Daily Mail; Canada-based The Star and a Germany-based website. Well, let me wait and see for a few days. I hope my Internet connection speed for the accession of this website could improve. Thanks for your responses. I am going to sleep now. Good night.

    Hi there! We are very sorry that we've had issues with the speed of the site recently.

    We recently had a security alert and therefore I put in place stricter measures to stop any problems arising. Unfortunately, some members will have seen a slow-down in the response of the site. Once I realised the impact of this on the speed of the site for some members I made some adjustments.

    I'm glad to see that they seem to work.

    Regards,

    Red.

    Dear Red5,

    Thank you for your response and adjustment. The speed of the Internet connection with the website has improved.

    Your website is my light of English study. Mods and members are very kind and very helpful. Now I get used to visit here everyday.

    I appreciate all the efforts and help you guys offer here.

    Best Regard,

    TD
