The CGC Boards will be down on Wednesday 5/9 starting at 9am ET so that we may upgrade to the latest version. This outage should not last more than a few minutes. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

After the upgrade is complete, please report any potential issues by posting in the following section:

Ever since this upgrade the board loads MUCH more slowly than before it.  Pages that used to take 2 to 5 seconds to load now take 10 to 20 seconds.  Any idea what's going on?  Everything's slower, but the "Content I Posted In" activity stream that's my default page is particularly slow and takes the longest to load, usually no less than 10 seconds.

+1, I'm experiencing this as well

As an update to this I think it's just the one activity stream "Content I Posted In" that runs very slowly after the upgrade.  Bringing up forum lists and threads seems to run fast, but because I use that stream as my main page I thought the whole site was slow.  But that stream has been consistently slow and still is.

So much worse today than yesterday...many of the streams are pretty much unusable to the point where I have to avoid them now.  The "Unread content" one doesn't load at all half the time.

Here's another forum using the same software where their users are complaining about the same issue:

https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/245040-new-content-not-working/

That suggests the latest version of the forum software may have issues for everyone who upgrades to it, not just these forums.  As a developer myself my first guess would be it's a database indexing issue.

I've also been seeing the same issue for the past few days, on both my phone and laptop...

Yea this has been occasionally happening to me as well since the patch, but most of the time it works fine.  That just looks like a straight-up bug they wouldn't be able to do anything about until the forum software vendor issues a patch.
