I don’t have an issue with this on Chrome.

Oh wait no I do have that. I just don’t have an issue going here:
https://www.inaturalist.org/comments?mine=true

Selecting the All comments tab also takes a while to load.

I’m having the same issue with the ‘Real Time Discussions’ tab, except it doesn’t load at all.

I think they are basically the same thing… The Real Time Discussions page just has a better user interface, I think.

“long time” is not very precise. I just tried loading https://www.inaturalist.org/comments and it took me about 35 seconds, which I would agree is a long time. Is that about how long it’s taking for you all?

And yes, Real Time Discussions didn’t load even after a minute.

Added to my weekly report.

I just loaded the Comments page, and it took 54 s. Early I had left the Real Time Discussions page open awhile (I think almost 8 minutes) and it still didn’t load.

That’s about how long it usually takes, sometimes longer though. Probably depends on internet connection as well.

Comments page should load more quickly now (it’s taking a few seconds for me), and Real Time Discussions will actually load now.
