    When I try to pull up Blade Forums nine times out of ten it doesn't work and I get the following message.
    I thought my internet might be bogged down but I have the highest package just running two computers and a few phones so that can't be it. Everything else loads fine so I was wondering if this was just me or if anyone else had this issue? Thanks for any help in advance.

    Things like this are usually posted in the Tech subforum, and a lot of times you will be able to see if anyone else is having issues.

    I've had the same thing pop up as you did, and there have been a couple times I will get a " Bad request ". It seems to be working much better now though

    I've had problems loading the forum every day for the last week. One day I couldn't get it to load for a couple of hours.

    I'm also experiencing difficulties. Forum downtime, slow page loads/reloads, very slow post submissions...and a much increased amount of dreaded double taps... This seems to be worsening over all, but there are times when it isn't bad, then others where I just walk away because everything becomes very sluggish. This is happening on both my laptop (Win07, Chrome/Firefox/IE8) & phone (Android, stock browser).

    It's been pretty slow for me in last week on my iPad as well.

    We're trying to track this down. The problems are ongoing and happening across multiple servers.

    Turns out there was a coordinated bot attack that hit most of our servers and was eating up CPU & swap file space. Fun! Firewall has been updated

    Same here. It was getting pretty bad but no problems today. It is nice to see that Spark takes site security and such seriously.
