so ive beem putting this off because i thought that it was just my computer being slow but after i switched a to a chromebook from my school i noticed that replit is still being slow and its getting worse, it start as it was simply taking longer to load repls but now i cant even run anything because it take 10-20 minutes for the first print statement to work, i rely on replit for school how can i fix this issue?

Probably because there are a lot more users joining because of covid, and it can be difficult to scale quickly.

thats true, ive been poking around since i posted this and its a theory that the teams for education is dragging the servers down because of a bug @InvisibleOne

Hello! Repl has been running slow, this is a KNOWN ISSUE!

plant3jyyehejy (16)

thank you for so kindly informing me that it is a known issue, but if you would please read the body before leaving an answer you would see that i mentioned i thought it was my computer. @AloegelhiPlaysR

i did read it, i put the comment because you thought it was your computer. @plant3jyyehejy

i also mentioned that i realised it was replit, i worded it like that because your 'KNOWN ISSUE" seemed a bit rude for simply stating something @AloegelhiPlaysR

AloegelhiPlaysR (129)

i used caps to emphasize the fact it's a known issue that way you can easier understand it, didn't know not everyone took english 7th grade+ yet @plant3jyyehejy

plant3jyyehejy (16)

use all caps is a good way to emphasize certain things, in this case it was used incorrectly, go read this conversation again and then you will see that it looks like yelling. @AloegelhiPlaysR

Yep, I also think it's super slow. I get these messages like "connecting" or "retrying", as well as the replit spinning logo, or the white loading symbol, etc.

And when you press run, it takes a long time to even start executing, then actually executing. And do you sometimes get this message that says "can't edit in read only mode"?

And perhaps when you upload images or stuff like that, you can't move it as it takes so long to load?

Don't worry, I'm also getting those annoying messages. Only thing to do is wait. Or reload the page. You could also open up the shell with cmd-shift-s or ctrl-shift-s and type kill 1 which gives you a new container.

You can also report to bugs by clicking the 'get help' button on the sidebar:

Then click 'report a bug':

Good luck! :D
