kthxbai! You're all alone, Mugen.

This is my way of telling you that deviantart loads within 3 seconds on smartbro 370 kbps :P
How do you make your games? I see. Thank you for the prompt replies, but it is my considered opinion that you're doing it wrong inefficiently because I am a perfushenal professional. Do it my way this way and we can all ascend VN Nirvana together while allowing me to stroke my ego you will improve much faster. Also, please don't forget to thank me for this constructive critique or I will cry and bore you to death respond appropriately with a tl;dr rant discourse of epic adequately lengthy proportions. - Sarcasm Veiled in Euphemism: Secrets of Forum Civility by lordcloudx (Coming soon to an online ebook near you.)

Smartbro corporate account here. DA is really slow, slower than HF even. Also in Makati City.
Come to think of it, LSF and Ren'Py.org also slow.

If you're in the province, there's no traffic.

Is it so much about bandwidth as it is about DeviantArt servers being slow? I mean... DA has never been fast for me either.

DA tends to be on the slow side. I think it's because of all the traffic.... Then again, I haven't been on DA for awhile now so take this comment as you will. :P

Slow deviantart is very slow here in England, too. It's probably not a problem with all of our connections, then. Although the internet here sucks.

One thing to try would be to speedtest using a server located in the US. I'm wondering if the transpacific link is what's clogged.

dA tends to be especially sluggish for me during the weekends, at an hour where a lot of people are bound to be active... Otherwise, it just takes maybe one second (which is still slow, I think) for everything to load.

(Gee, I sure wish I got 350 kb/s upload speed... Would make uploading stuff into the RAA so much easier...)

My experience is that sometimes, dA is just arse-slow. Probably because they waste so much time on "user friendly" interfaces and ridiculous Flah ads (*grumblegrumblecrankyoldstandardscurmudgeon*). And their traffic. But I have similar issues, though my connection is slower - deviantArt is just unreasonably slow sometimes.

Heck, EVERYTHING is slow for me.

Getting more than 25KBps is like a miracle for me ^_^

Clearly, this must be divine retribution for your sins and can only be rectified through prayer and fasting.

I've been having some problems too with accessing deviantart from home. No problems from the office however. I did some looking around and it seems a lot of PLDT users are experiencing this problem as well... @_@

Eh, DA is huge. I've always had the longest load time on that site, some days I can't even get on at all. I think they need to start clearing out unused accounts...
