1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Ever since the new look started, the forums is really crawling, I mean really slow. I have cable with the optional higher speed, and am not having problems with other sites. But I click into a post, and I might as well go fix a cup of coffee, and come back. Anybody else having problems, i can't believe it's just me.

    It is not you . I have the same problem with the site. Depends on the time of day. It does get annoying since no other sites are this bad.

    over here, opening a thread starts with a lag, then kicks in. I can live with it.

    It will be slower than usual for the first couple of days with the new system. It is doing a lot of background tasks right now like creating the search engine index, etc. If the slowness persists beyond a couple of days, please post in the 'New Forum Support' forum and the dev team can take a look at it.

    Wow, really? The new system is much faster, IMO.

    Well, TBH, waiting for the page to load, before being able to edit, is a bitch, and there are some minor lost packets when trying to post (but that's my internet). Pages load a lot faster, though.

    A lot of the slowdown is caused by the large amounts of Javascript, so it depends how fast your computer is. On my fast home computer it runs perfectly, on my work laptop it's okay but a bit slow; on my 1st gen iPhone it's horrendously slow.
