"What have you done to my beloved forum?!" - Page 9
Still getting lag.
It might be a little faster than day 1 or 2, but the site is still way too slow.
For some (such as myself, at least) I'd wager it's not a "controls" issue but a "Too much getting in the way of a forum experience" issue. I hate 90% of what Web 2.0 has brought. Flashy things that pop up, scripts from five different sites, a huge sidebar taking up room for posts (although, gratefully, this is a vertical bar that uses the extensive horizontal space monitors now have) are all intrusive. To me, the hallmark of a good website is one that delivers what you need and then gets out of your way. Does this SF do that? Clearly, people think not [even outside the realm of performance issues].
Keep in mind, this was first and foremost a forum. If someone enters and things Start To Appear (TM) they're going to be thrown off.
Web 2.0 isn't bad. It's sites and platforms that turn it into a horrible coded mess like Huddler. Web 2.0 is supposed to be clean this is Web 0.5. People say everyone is bitching because of change. That would be correct assuming it is a change for the better. This is clearly a change for the worse. I'll check back every now and then, but I doubt I'll read this site everyday like I used to.
Yes. I can't even scroll down a page without it lagging like hell. This site drains` my computer and I have a newer mac. It is so poorly coded it kills me. I literally haven't gone to any threads in over three days, only this one to see if the mods are actually gonna change back or keep this crap. Sadly, I've found myself browsing superfuture more and more. I wish the mods could fix the issues, but I think this is a Huddler issue because I've seen other sites transition to this platform and its still the same months later.
That was the only downfall of the old platform, but surely there had to be a better solution then this.
+1 - The white space is horrible. Tons of extra lines. Tons of stuff that you don't need now that the adds take up 30% of the page. Things like "last post" are useless IMO, just take up space and push everything down further to elongate that page.
On the note of the quoting, sure this has been mentioned, but if you delete one too many lines on the bottom your cursor gets stuck inside the quote box and I can't get it out.
We are also actively looking at the lag issue.
