  • Testing 1-2-3: Do the Forums Seem Zippier?

    They seem faster today, but wondered what y'all think. I did some vBulletin tweaks last night and it seems to have helped. But if anyone is experiencing problems, let me know so I can change things back.

    By adding "so far," you distinguish yourself as a veteran of these boards



    However, the tweak closed a Yahoo user interface library exploit, so until the next one comes along, the forums should stay as zippy as they are at the moment. Fingers crossed.

        Actually, if you're referring to just before you posted, I found out that Admin functions (like removing massive amounts of spam) are just as slow as ever, and hang the board. Between the time of my post and yours, I deleted about 50 spam messages and 20 IP addresses, which really slowed things down. But it seems as long as no one's doing deep admin functions, things go a lot faster.

            Thing is, Craig, it can sometimes take 10 or more attempts to access HC



            This problem is not apparent on ANY OTHER website I visit

              Maybe the aggressive spam removal is hleping speed things up. When I ban an IP that has 60 or 70 spammers, that's 60-70 bots who are temporarily not hitting the site.

                What do you mean, "access"? Like just getting the main forum page to open up?

                  Well, I have SSS as a favourite. I'll click on it and after about 5 seconds I'll get an error message



                  This can go on for several minutes



                  Eventually, the page will load

                        Yup, deleting tons of spam definitely slows things down...but as soon as they're gone, it speeds up again

                          It says 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage'



                          Which also answers your second question

                            I'm using Safari and so far, it seems snappier.



                            I should point out that prior to today, for the past few weeks, the forum has been much faster on this computer using Safari on a Mac than a PC laptop using Firefox or Safari.
