When don't I have trouble with the website?

How many blank pages, image upload failures, and long loading times have I encountered? The answer--far too many.

Talked to a mod a few weeks ago and they said they had been getting DDoS'ed fairly often. Who does it, the world may never know...

I'm sure they know the IP Addresses, but the thing is, most of the IP Addresses are probably members of the site who are being controlled unknowingly. Most people who DDoS just have several hundred or several thousand or more computers all ping a server for hours and hours until the server gets so much of a load it just fails to respond to some requests. If pinging doesn't work, then doing several get/post requests on several thousands of computers that have malware on them is the next step. I think most DDoS are just pining the servers, there is nothing Crunchyroll can do about them really. As I said, they can ban the IPs that are pinging the servers, but then they will need to ban several thousand users who don't know their computer is secretly pinging Crunchyroll. Then, even if Crunchyroll does ban them, all the DDoS people need to do is find more computers to take over and ping all over again.

My experience is usually the worst on weekends; day time moreso than night time. I never encountered these issues in years' previous on CR.

I noticed that when I logged in the other day it ran through Cloudflare DDOS protection. So I guess there was a problem before.

Ideally they would temp ban those users and give them a notice.

Same here. It's been happening off and on for me for the last few months at least. And I've been out of work for months now, so I'm on here a lot, and I have noticed more issues during the weekends.

Ohhhh, so that's why that suddenly started popping up sometimes when I use Crunchyroll. I was wondering why it suddenly started appearing for this site randomly in the last couple of months when it never had before, and I've been using the site for years now.
