post #16 of 41
Another vote for speed issues, I have firefox on personal laptop and IE at work and it is slow on both browsers. I am not going to say anything about navigating the site, it really has become very cumbersome. I know there is no way back but I personally stopped browsing except to check my inbox. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise.

Works fine on my iMac running latest version of Safari. However, using Safari on iPhone 4 is EXTREMELY slow.

super slowwwwwww.

I know I speak for more than just myself when I say this, if there was some option to pay a fee ($5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50) to go back to the old sf I would do it in a hearth beat, this site is slow... unbearably slow.

I dont mean to offend the mods in any way, I appreciate what we have here, but dang this really sucks for now.

As a regular user the bad eBay type slowness is very irritating and tiresome. Furthermore in the morning I had to tune up the computer because of all the problems of slowness caused to it overnight.

I won't say that the old SF was perfect (eg PMs etc have improved) but overall this change is a disaster witha cluttered hard to use page/format.

The B&S split is ridiculous and cumbersome and basically destoys the value of B&W for a casual look and shop.

I don't know who thought this transformation was a good idea but you have stuffed up royally. I frankly think you have never used the site yourself because it is so inept it shows.

There arent any speed issues on my 4 year old macbook, I work on the last version of chrome and im not experiencing issues. I can see however where they come from, I cant load SF on my blackberry anymore, the site takes up too much memory, so it shuts it down frown.gif .

The big prob is graphics rendering. My MacBook 4,1 has an integrated graphics card with only 144 MB of RAM... now it can utilize some of the motherboards RAM, but then the CPU loses RAM power. Sure, my next computer is not going to be a laptop, so I'll be able to get 512 or a TB RAM graphics card... but if you have anything with les the optimal power, some modern sites are pretty slow and / or don't allow you to multitask. luckily, I don't have problems looking at the new SF.

I have had to cut way down on the amount of times I am visiting this site, due to utter frustration with the speed. Plus I'm dumping cookies at least once to twice a day, since they are comming by the bucket full. I have noticed from looking at postings, that it appears many people have laid off alot on their visits and posting. So this problem might get fixed when the bean counters see a sizeable drop in use, since hits usually relate to $.

We are looking into issues, but clearly, this is just not true. You can look at my personal posting history, and you'll see that I was using and working on this site constantly. We do hear your concerns though, and if you read J's thread, I hope that you will understand that we are trying to get as many fized, as quickly as possibl.

Since the change to the new system, I can hardly get Style Forum to work properly, if at all, on my computer. Slow, hangs up, won't advance and won't go back. Appreciate all the fine advice on upgrading/switching to whateveritis you are talking about, but I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Afraid that my solution will soon be to give up on Style Form, which I regret.

Can we start another thread that's more technical oriented? I am sure there are some software guys here as well, we can all contribute (though my coding skill is quite rusty after a few years in finance...). Is there original documentation, design guideline, what's required for browsers? Do you need JDK x, or native support of Y, blah blah. I understand it's not your daily job, so even just an original document for someone to start dig in will be sufficient.

I dont think that he was referring to you or the mods, I think he was referring to the people who run huddler (or whatever the companies name is)

Dear Styleforum,

You are bombing my machine. The constant loading of sponsor pages is killing me. I can't come back without true wariness. Soon I may have to take you off my favorites. Please fix yourself. It is no shame to revert to the previous format, is it? Afterwards let's just say this was a minor, temporary mistake that has been corrected.

Please feel free to start one. Seriously. I am not very good at any of this, any would welcome a thead where users can help users, and J. and I can post answers to technical questions specific to the platform as best we can, or when we get an answer back from the developers.

Cheers,

Fok.

The problem is, hiland, that Huddler relies too much on AJAX and YUI, often in places where it provides nothing but needlessly flashy effects (which could be forgiven if they were elegant, but alas -- they're not). I'm using a MacBook Core 2 Duo with Chrome and if I have more than 2 tabs of SF open stuff starts to get pretty slow. The layout itself is one thing -- it's busy, but everyone knows that already -- but the animations and hover effects and tooltips and loading "fade-ins" and all this other flashy garbage just serve to make the forum "shell" more distracting from the content.
