Duolingo taking longer to evaluate translations

It seems that now Duolingo has to "think about" my translations for a lot longer when I submit them. I wonder if this is due to many more users?

Duolingo is probably having some trouble scaling their system in this area, since comparing the translations is somewhat computationally intensive.

lol Ummm, what does that mean? "scaling their system?" I can see where it would be intensive for the computer to compare translations.

See here for your question: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalability Just now, though, I am having better response times than I was yesterday, so maybe they fixed it.
