#2 Posted by BlackWaterCO (1574 posts) -

No, it's a fusion of Wikipedia, Gamespot and Comicbook website

#3 Posted by phatkav (304 posts) -

actually right now it's not as slow as yesterday night.

#4 Posted by Resonate (172 posts) -

yeah, yesterday it was uber slow

#5 Posted by claysol13 (65 posts) -

Well, for one, if you would read the post or search for the answer on why this site is slow, you wouldn't waste the space.  But, since I am posting here I might as well give you an answer.

This site is new, and is in the open beta stages.

There has been a great influx if people adding articles, images, reviews, blogs, posts, etc. etc.  So therefore the back end server I am sure is under a lot of stress. So yea.  There is your answer for the slow.

Seems to be pretty fast now, and I'm in the UK. Where are you?

#7 Posted by Mushir (2389 posts) -

Much faster today than it was yesterday. There are just too many people on the site right now which makes it run a little slow.

#8 Posted by BlackWaterCO (1574 posts) -

Yeah and BTW, it's also super fast for me now

#9 Posted by blu_magnet (258 posts) -

Its picking up pretty well

#10 Posted by _F_ (32 posts) -

Do they even have a mod team around here or it is just over run

#11 Posted by mgsninja (26 posts) -

The performance is way better to day.

#12 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

The site just launched...it's going to be slow initially. Get over it.

It doesn't look anything like YouTube. And if you think it's slow today you should have been here yesterday. In fact I think it's running perfectly today.

This site is pretty original for what it is -- it's a video games Wiki but with a stronger community than I've ever known on a Wiki site. And it's only been open for one day.
#15 Posted by phatkav (304 posts) -

i'm thinking if the site being fast now has anything to do witht he fact that it's still early in the morning and most of us are either at work or sleeping.

#16 Posted by _F_ (32 posts) -

By youtube I mean the Wall thing in profiles

#17 Posted by Josef_Nastra (102 posts) -

It seems faster now i agree. Very slow in the beginning but they seem to have worked it out.

It's quite fast for me atm. It was much slower yesterday.

#22 Posted by Manks (836 posts) -

It was slower yesterday.  Now it's pretty fast.

#23 Posted by Resonate (172 posts) -

yeah. I think those guys with the 200 posts must have been really determined yesterday if the site was this slow

I mean, holy crap

#24 Edited by Schadenfreude (206 posts) -

It was rather slow yesterday, but it was the first day. It appears to be running much smoother today.

#25 Posted by nubsway (45 posts) -

It was really so for me yesterday and would not even load sometimes. But now it seems to be running smoothly.

#26 Posted by Flexiable (98 posts) -

As above, it was a LOT slower yesterday, today it is humming along quite nicely.

#27 Posted by Legend (2659 posts) -

This is still a beta launch, so slowdowns, crashes and bugs are to be expected. The site is becoming more stable, though.

#28 Posted by Overrated_Hero (238 posts) -

It's the beta version and add the fact of the big traffic of users.

There isn't currently a mod team at the moment but they will be contacting people in the upcoming week or so about possible positions. Its only day two so calm down. Its not going to be perfect in the opening week.
#30 Posted by MissileWarriorz (264 posts) -

#31 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

Yeah, the mod team should start to appear soon enough

Yeah I really think they need some mods, at least a few, and I'm happy to help out lol. Just so that they could keep the forums clean and get a little pressure of off Jeff , Ryan, VInny, and Brad.

Have you ever been in an open beta before?  I was in three for the various incarnations of Gamespot, and this is no worse than their first one. (lithium) This is GB's first one as well, so you have to grin and bear it.  Some people can't, and thats why they just registered their user names and left, to wait for things to settle down.

#34 Posted by RowdyRob (206 posts) -

You think today is slow? Should've been here yesterday >_>

Everythings fine for me as of now =]

#35 Posted by MagusMaleficus (1036 posts) -

I know that CitizenKane fellow was made one of the first mods, so I'm sure full moderation isn't so terribly far off.

#36 Posted by stAtic (1638 posts) -

It's supa fast now, compared to yesterday.
