Anyone else having issues?
It's not only the forum, but also the wiki as well

GitHub is having problems so it may be a larger-internet problem: https://www.githubstatus.com/

The problem has disappeared for me now. Btw, I didn't have problems with GitHub.

Confirmed (except the Github part, since I wasn't using it)

FreeCAD forum was fast as usual until ~5 hours ago. Then it became awfully slow again.

Yes, but now it works again. I hope we don't get this everyday now.

Unless there are any objections I will switch the wiki to read-only tomorrow and begin the migration; it may be read-only for quite some time, with a worst-case scenario of ~24 hours or so, hopefully less than 12.
