Lately the forum has become quite slow resulting in poor user experience.
From 'click to click' browsing on threads and categories, it can take up to 3seconds for the requests to be processed and served by the server.
As shown in the screenshot above, the browser will wait for 3+ seconds for the server to process and serve the request. It then takes only 103ms for the browser to receive the results from the server. So it's clear that the delays are server-side and not in transit or client-side.
Static content is served fast. Only dynamic content is slow.
So, it seems that the server forum.mikrotik.com runs on cannot handle the load any more, or there's some other issue (bot crawling?) causing these delays.
There are (random) times that some requests are processed in 200-500ms which is acceptable (in terms on UX) but most of the time nowadays the waiting times are between 1-3seconds which result in bad UX.
By the way, it would be nice to have SSL/TLS on forum.mikrotik.com. It's free
