Thumbs up Forum load speed

in the past, this forum was deathly slow to complete the loading. though i have noticed just recently, it completes a lot faster! i have not changed anything at my end, so it must be something at the server/code end.
in any case, thanks for whatever the admins did, even if they don't know what fixed it yet.


in detail of my previous load speed, the page content would readable load within about 6 seconds, but the browser would not be finished until about another 25 seconds. as an experiment, i loaded the forum in a fresh browser tab, and completion time was about 14 seconds.

Still agonizingly slow by modern standards.

I joined six different Goldwing forums earlier this year because I didn't know the lay of the landscape and I was trying to figure out which ones were trafficked and which ones were not (same as the P-car landscape, some are active, some are not).

This one seems to be "moderately" trafficked, and has a fair number of posts on the GL1800. Some others have only a few posts a day, while others seem to be very heavy on the GL1500, GL1200, and older 'Wings.

And there are hints of the politics behind the scenes that seem to have shaped the landscape into so many different forums instead of just a couple. That seems to be *very* common. From Farmall tractors to Porsches to CNC machines, there's always drama.

Hey, I'm not an administrator or anything, but this forum can be very slow at times. The content will come up and be visible, but you can't navigate until all the ads on the sides/top finish loading. I'm guessing there are different ads, maybe with less animation, and that's why the forum FEELS faster.

Hmm, but i don't get any ads. bit of a perk of Premium membership i think.

Felt the slowness as well.

Are you all hanging on anything?

only hanging i have noticed seems to be in waiting for the google search widget to load. after that, the page loading completes. probably Google isn't within the realm of your territory.
previous to becoming a Premium Member, the ads caused a lot of hang-time. the slowness isn't really an inconvenience at this point. though something must have changed recently (week or so), as it used to load very slow at times. much better now though. perhaps the number of users were exceeding the bandwidth?

Thanks for the feedback,

The next time you see that hanging, get me the link and I can forward it to the techs.

Cheers,

Ed

I often find that different days produce different results. But 9 times out of 10 I'll lay the blame on our local provider. The variable and often unreliable bit rates raise havoc with our dealer web sites and operating management program. We howl bloody murder at them and it magically gets better. Hmmmm.

I found that when I changed to the original skin of the forum it runs faster. Please bear in mind that I also have the slowest internet speed. I don't know if that change will work for everyone.
