    Did you experience the same difficulties?

    Hello.

    Did anyone of you go through the same problem the previous days where it takes nearly an hour to check a thread, please?

    Thanks.

    Not for me. It was a little slow on my iPhone but on my computer it was perfectly normal.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No, but I occasionally get 15 minutes into answering a difficult question, try to submit it, and find that I'm locked out because the place is full. Very annoying. But not in the last few days.

    I am sorry you've experienced this. There was something causing a slight slowdown in some areas, which has been fixed I believe. However, I haven't heard of anything like this long- I will ask the webmaster to look into it.

    I knew about some speed issues but 1 hour is very excessive... pages were taking 10 - 30 seconds to load for me and others, but this is new to me.

    Has the speed improved today?
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    That's probably the server doing load-limiting which happens when there are significant numbers of connections to the server to stop it falling over. Hopefully that shouldn't happen too often.

    I have been experiencing the slow speed even now. Looks like this is still a problem for users like me from China. But the app is Okay though it couldn't "like" and "thank".

    It's not a problem to me- I'm in the Philippines and it's behaving normally. I will get the webmaster to check server speeds.
