Tapatalk RIP for RFF Deactivated

Since we installed Tapatalk,
RFF has been a lot slower.

Today it has been deactivated as a test.

I was beginning to wonder if my browser was causing the problem ... I just installed the lates firefox version and noticed a real slow down. This morning seems back to normal.

That's unfortunate. It's a wonderful tool for browsing from a mobile device or iPad. Sorry to hear that it's not working out.

Yea, for the past several days RFF has been so slow that connections timed out often. No idea what Tapatalk is but whatever has been done has put RFF back to normal speed wise for me.

Hmmm... You're right it is still working. Fingers crossed that it was some other problem slowing things down!

I couldn't get on anyway the other day, then Tapatalk worked before my 'internet' connection. "Slow" has a very different meaning to those of us in rural Vermont than the rest of you. What I find fast would most likely make anyone else give up.

I never use tapatalk since I have none of those pesky mobile devices--other than a plain Jane cellphone--but RFF seems much faster and more responsive than it has been over the past few days. I'm on a reasonably fast wireless system but I was getting frequent server timeouts when visiting here...

Ah, so that's why I can't access RFF w/ Tapatalk! Unlike some of the others on this thread, deactivating Tapatalk deactivated access from my iTouch. I kinda like RFF on Tapatalk.

I have had several sessions time out or take eons to load. Enjoying the test period, if that is what is speeding things up this morning.

I'm a gear-head and a code-head, but not a gadget-head.
I like my laptop heavy with hi-res display and broad keyboard.

That's how I do RFF.

None of that namby-pamby Tap-a-what???

I still don't really know what Tapatalk is all about but I have noticed that RFF is a bit slower today than it was yesterday...so to all you Tapatalkers...STOP IT!!!

Real slow today...

Hope RFF stays with Tapatalk compatibility, otherwise my $2.95 will have been a waste!

Edit: Everything involving posting is particularly bogged down here today. (for me)

All other websites I frequent open immediately so it seems the issue is not on my end, either with my internet connect or browser.
This is my experience also. RFF is becoming very difficult to use. I must try repeatedly just to open the website. This was not a problem previously.

Tapatalk is not disabled right now, so it cannot be excluded a priori. But the error report on that Tapatalk forum linked to above is described as causing a javascript induced browser side rendering delay - while I can observe our current speed problem with scripts disabled as well. So it will not be that particular bug that has troubled us for the past few days. There may be other bugs in Tapatalk, but we could just as well be bitten by one in the forum software, or it could be an issue with the hosting provider or his hardware...

I've not had too many problems recently but today I was unable to get access to the site from about 15:00 GMT till now 21:30 GMT. All other sites were working fine but RFF was timing out.

RFF has been flakey for a day or three for me - mostly slow page loads, sometimes timing out. It has just been unavailable for an hour - total timeouts, sometimes with some message about the database. Now back, and page loads are sometimes slow, sometimes okay.

It reminds me of what happened on a forum that I run. Very similar behaviour, and it turned out that the hosting provider's database server was under excessive load. They never did fix it (blamed my rather small database for the issue, when it had worked perfectly well for months beforehand). I moved to a different provider, which has the database server on the same machine as the web host, and it it has been super-fast ever since. It occured to me that maybe something similar was happening to RFF when some of the page loaded quickly - title bar, menu, sidebar - but not the list of forums/topics.

RFF has been very slow for me over last few days. Sometimes it appears the server has gone down as I get server has stopped responding errors . It seems fine now though

I'm not a huge tapatalk fan . Infect I prefer the standard desktop site when accessing with my iPhone... As I doing now

FYI- I am accessing the forum via Tapatalk and regular browser with no difficulty at all. Many sites use Tapatalk with no issues (LUF for example) so I might peek at the forum app or web server to see if there is a database issue or a problem with excessive threads (or sessions) being opened and staying that way.

I'm accessing from a regular browser in the UK today has been bad. Just hangs sometimes or is very slow.
A bit better now. I think it may be internet routing causing problems because tracert shows timeouts before it gets to RFF.

RFF was slow or would not load for several days and then yesterday it seemed to clear up and run normally. That is until this afternoon when it timed out several times again. I have had no trouble whatsoever in getting on to other sites the whole time RFF has been flakey.

I thought it was improved a day or so ago but last night and this morning it's being very flakey again.

I find it difficult to judge at times because I have satelite broadband due to the area I live in having no other options! It's rubbish ... it drops out randomly at least once day and costs an arm and a leg in this country ... and a lot of Aussies are forced to use it because of our geography and smal population.
