    A bit better than yesterday, all day vomiting for
    The forum has been running very slow for me the past two weeks. This seems to be a chronic problem here that I don't encounter anywhere else.

    I think two things need to be done:

    1. Move to a faster host. Clearly they are not getting the job done.

    2. Upgrade the vBulletin software. 3.6.4 is very out of date by now and with the volume of pics here I think that is an issue. Some forums allow you to do a setting where pics cannot be requoted. That might work well here.


    Unfortunately there are not enough members present to make a quorum, so no action will be taken until the situation can be rectified.

    I'm promoting using the spoiler tags in wayw's... not sure if that helps solve the problem though

    I agree that spoiler tags are useful in cutting down on the visual noise and redundancy of a page.

    However, they do nothing to eliminate server load. Database load is likely a far more limiting factor for SF than web server load, and in any case, most images are hosted off-site.
    If people find that pages with lots of pictures load slowly for them, it's a local problem with their client, but even that should be rare as many repetitions of the same image should not cause additional work for the client either.

    We are moving to a new software and new server in the next few months, so not much will be done before that. I will optimize the database soon and see if that helps at all, but probably no major changes will be made.

    I like the Doom II sound effect at the very end.

    Will the new software have a mobile view?

    Why was my penis size poll on H&B deleted? It wasn't offensive and certainly fell within the range of other penis-related discussions on that forum.

    Yes, it will have (a) mobile version(s).
    And a real-time MantonMeter™?
    No, it should not need one. Or we can make one that just points to 'freely liberate' or whatever the 'good' side of the MantonMeter is.

    I kinda want to ban you for asking this.

    J, are you upgrading to VB4 or going to a different forum software?
