Is it just me?

Is it just me or has the maps been taking longer to update the view map? I have put things in over the last three days and none of them have appeared onto the view map?

The tile server is becoming chronically overloaded, mostly as a result of mobile apps scraping vast quantities of images when they shouldn't.

I've been using MapQuest since they render almost immediately.

It should be back now after maintenance and hopefully nice and speedy again.

Please don't blame mobile apps for everything.
If you know mobile hardware that is able to do this, let me know.
My iPhone4 is certainly to slow to overload the server. I presume that not all sold iPhones access OSM all day long.
Are there statistics whice devices access the OSM-server?
I would guess 90% windows PCs, we should block these :-)

@wieland: So, if the sysadmins are saying that mobile apps
are a problem, are they wrong, or do you somehow have some information the sysadmins don't?
