META: Site slowdowns

Over the last week, this site's been having some connectivity issues. In an effort to track down why, I've made some back-end changes, disabled the rotating "Featured Character" box in the header, and essentially removed the "Hall of Fame" page for now. If any of that helps, I'll add them back one by one to see which is causing the problems.

Basically the hosting company is telling me that some scripts were taking too much processor time and so were shutting down access to the page. Since the latter two scripts are the only ones I've added recently, I'm figuring they're probably the culprits, but we'll see.

  1. Just gonna say, I haven’t been experiencing any problems. Oh, and some of the Featured Characters I’ve seen aren’t on the Hall of Fame. Was this intentional and if so why?

  2. HeroMachine has been near impossible for me to connect to today. Hope that I’m back now sticks.

  3. Apparently not. I’ve been fighting.my phone for almost 2 hours to connect to HeroMachine.

  4. I have been having problems all day today also, wouldn’t connect on my PC no matter which browser I used nor could I get on with my iphone, Luckly I got all my contest entries up before the problems started.
