Does the website seem really slow lately? Searches, opening forum threads, and the manual have all been very laggy for me for more than a month.

I've cleared my cache, tested from multiple Interweb connections, and tried with IE, Chrome, and Firefox, so I am assuming it's not me. :D

I've already made a post about his a few days ago, when the Store was launched. It can take up to 5 minutes now just to read a post. Site is awful to use at these times.

It really is ridiculous at times. How can a site take 10 minutes to load a page? It just looks unprofessional.

What's also ridiculous is the number of new users such as this lot:

IMMA114, IMMA196, IMMA201, IMMA212, IMMA246, IMMA353, IMMA360, IMMA366, IMMA367, IMMA372, IMMA431, IMMA491, IMMA497, IMMA498, IMMA526, IMMA555, IMMA567, IMMA617, IMMA628, IMMA690, IMMA727, IMMA747, IMMA770, IMMA774, IMMA815, IMMA848, IMMA869, IMMA909, IMMA925, IMMA939, IMMA989, IMMA999

I think I see a pattern............

The subject on forum attacks interest me since yesterday, made some reading found out that there's a lot security issue with phpBB, even a hacker wannabe capable of attacking it (at least what I summed up). I found out about xenforo, which claimed by it's user for very secure towards attacks, they even have a thread encouraging attackers to try attack the forum engine, what a man!

I had no experience having my own forum or something, but is it viable for Scirra to consider changing into other forum engine? given that the size of this forum is considerable large.

Website is horribly slow and sometimes doesn't load on my mobile any more.

Regarding new users, we desperately need a better way of filtering first time or first 5 times posts (ie a load on the mods) to weed out the obvious trash.
