I have been experiencing slow downs in the forums for some time now which I have directly traced to ads running in flash.
Impacts are usually one of the following
- Long page loads.
- Long time to open message
- Long time to open reply window.
I know this is related to flash because if I start killing flash as soon as I see the problem the problem often disappears. However once it starts I can expect to be required to kill flash for every new page load for some time.
I have experienced this on three different computers (completely different types) with different OS versions and three completely different networks.
And at least one of the networks is quite fast. I do run virus checkers but I was using two different types of those as well.
I can't say that it happens with all of the flash ads. But once it starts happening it seems to happen for a while (could of course be the same ad.)
I have on occasion experienced this on other sites but nothing like I see here. But to be fair I spend more time here than elsewhere.
Might not be anything that is fixable but just noting it as a problem.
Apologies for that – your previous Beta Tester status for our previous new ventures accidentally carried over to this new beta test. I’ve removed all previous beta testers but please let me know if you’d be interested in this beta test and I’ll send you some coupons.
Hi Chris, I didn't get any coupons regarding that. And wanted to ask you few things.
Currently I'm posting comments(with details like 'Needs Help' options. But I want to make things faster. Like doing following changes myself, by this way we could clear many items from pending queue quickly. 5 approval reports takes long time so if I do the following changes, we could approve items quickly. Format / layout issues
Wrong section / tags
What's the easy way(like from some menu) to navigate to Mentor forum[^].
And one more thing. In past(1 year ago?) I had a power to delete questions in Q/A section. Using that power, I have deleted more than bunch of duplication questions at that time(Even today I found few reposts). After long time I noticed that I lost that power.
I think I forgot few more things, will ask you when I remember....
