Wiki slowdowns

Several people have been talking in the clan chat about the slowness of the wiki. I've noticed that this happens around noon (CST) and might be caused by GEBot.

I've added a .1 second wait between wiki updates, which should help at least a little bit.

A suggestion I got was to change GEBot so he runs at a less peak time. What time should he run at?

I just had major lagg for like 10 mins. Now it is faster. --Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 18:13, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Well, GEBot is still running, and the script didn't get the new delay timer yet (updates won't apply while the bot is running), so that leaves the reason open to almost anything :-/ ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 18:16, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
I just added a poll to the main site for some times for the fest. The highest votes would usually be directly related to the highest peak, so some times less voted might be a good choice. 18:19, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Only one of the times could be considered "high", and it's not a time GEBot runs. We'll have to see what happens when GEBot runs next (about five hours from now.) ~Nightgunner5 talkTrans 18:39, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

Curious: would it be possible to distribute updates throughout the day? By my calculations, the entire GEMW can be updated across 24 hours at a rate of approximately 1 edit per 40 seconds. Editing at this rate would likely never bog the wiki down. -Byte_Master bytesig2.png bytesig3.png 10:12, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

sometimes for me i click on a link then it just goes to a blank page after ages of loading, and the favicon is the wikia logo. Joe Click Here for Awesomeness

Im still slowing down, at the beginning of the update just now, i couldn't even load the main page. Is there some way to slow down the updates even more? --File:Red phat chathead.png‎|30px|My hair is ftw ^.^ Noah Talk to meh here <-You should really talk with me..... 19:19, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
