Where 'text' & 'friend' are nouns
Obviously not at this moment (allowing me to type and post), but often over the past 4-5 days or so, yes. Sometimes in the middle of a post, where a weird "Quick Reply" box appears where the cursor doesn't activate; the dreaded spinning dotted arrow, too.

I really don't know the cause... The server resources have not exceeded 51% in a long time. I am thinking it's more of a vbulletin issue. Will continue to investigate and I am also fast-tracking the vbulletin replacement.

it's always down with photo post, and wp is usually very slow too when that happens. If the server logs say it's topping at 51%, is that processor and ram? Perhaps there's a bad ram board or cpu core.

It's constant for me; I rarely can get through. No pattern or time of day. :( Often before finishing a post, too (we'll see here).
I echo this experience. Not sure if it matters, but I'm using a Mac and browsing with Safari. I never try to access the site through my mobile device.

Things so far are working out pretty well on this VB, no chugging anymore and so far today it's been quite zippy.

EDIT: It was working very quickly but now it's chugging a little again; so far though, no server busy messages.

The 'serve busy' notice has popped up a lot for me in the last month. That's why I haven't posted as much. Or, when I did post, it would take two or three tries for my post to go through.

It took about 3 days to be able to post this... but the waiting text in the boxes of these various threads went away after the first day. Read below:


Interesting... I tried to reply to the "How did you spend your Sat.?" thread, and the "server busy" message prevented me from posting my comment. But, in a nice observation, my un-submitted post is still at the bottom of the thread (I still cannot post it, as the same error message pops up), so I wouldn't have to re-type it. If/when I can do so.
p.s. This reply is doing the same thing now.
