Default What's wrong with RCU

I am finding it harder & harder to access & use the forums. Slow loading and time out messages have reached the point of hardly being worth the effort. IE on DSL Highspeed

I thought it was my laptop or something to do with the Trans Atlantic connection, good to hear that no favoritism is being shown.

HI, you know, RCU, is just screwing themselves, it takes forever to place a revenue makeing add, being a Prosellar, RCU, makes money on every add I place, for example, I have for several hours, tried to complete one add.

Very annoying, click on a thread and wait over a minute or more for it to load. Really bad tonight.

I would agree it is very poor again as it has been in the past. I think it needs a little investment in time or money or indeed both

To go from being quite normal on day to sudenly awful is not to do with money or time invested, this has to do with somekind of server or service provider slowdown and could be nothing to do with RCU, give them 24hrs to see if its sorted out.

I too have been struggling with this for quite some time. I have debated whether doing my build threads was even worth it. I am starting the Hawk today and trying to decide whether to complete my thread or just skip it. It takes too much time and much frustration the way RCU is running these days. It seems like all these problems started when RCU changed hands some months back.

Same thing here. I can hardly post and don't bother much any more. It's been like this for 4 months for me now.
I was expecting to post two build threads but didn't bother.

Maybe it's some PO'd user who has hacked into the service.  Someone, for example, who got their chain yanked for speaking their mind about something that happend to be a "policy" violation?

I don't know if it's they can't, or won't fix the on going issues. Where's the new meeting place going to be in case RCU goes totally belly up? [X(]

Thought it was my iPhone on the go slow but clearly not.

Ages to load only to crash or time out.  Very annoying

I'm involved in a Decathlon build thread here. I thought about restarting with the photos over at FG. FG or RCG both would be good. However, as someone else said, it may be a provider and not RCU. They have been good for years and years, so I'll give them another week, maybe even two, before I jump ship, as I stated on another thread.

Same here, very slow, time outs, etc and it happens on my home PC and my work PC so I don't think its connection related.
