This all started happening yesterday for me, but the site just runs veeeeeeeery slowly.

Thumbnails take forever to load, and when you actually want to view the whole picture, it'll take minutes to load that depending on the size. Videos are a lost cause, never making it past the 1 second mark before buffering for eternity. I've used both Firefox and Chrome, and both run about the same. Clearing my cache and history does nothing.

I've checked other booru and booru-like sites, and everything loads/runs just fine on them.

It's not you, the traffic gets very heavy on Saturdays and our servers are taxed.

The domain is currently being served from CloudFlare's services. They tend to become bogged down for some unknown reason. I'll disable their proxy caching for now.
