Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

I'm still having lots of problems. CSS sporadically won't load, only a certain percentage of images in reviews will come up, it'll take up to five or six attempts to get a thread or forum listing to load....

I take it all back. Everything is timing out. I'm back to Firefox today.

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

i too am getting slowness, and just got this error:


vBulletin datastore error caused by one or more of the following:
  1. You may have uploaded vBulletin 3.6 files without also running the vBulletin upgrade script. If you have not run the upgrade script, do so now.
  2. The datastore cache may have been corrupted. Run Rebuild Bitfields from tools.php, which you can upload from the do_not_upload folder of the vBulletin package.

Fatal error: vBulletin datastore cache incomplete or corrupt in [path]/includes/init.php on line 214

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

Any time I click on a link or make a post, it takes several seconds to complete. This forum was always very fast for me (XP SP3, IE8), click on a link and I'm there, submit a post and it's done. Now when I submit a post it's 7 to 10 seconds before the post makes it, a good 5 seconds (or longer) after clicking a link to change destinations. This has been going on for at least a week (probably longer). There is no quickness about the forum anymore. I wish vBulletin would resolve whatever issues they're having. -kd5-

Again, we're very sorry for this. We've been working on tracking down a resolution to the site issues we know you've been having. I promise I will update you as soon as I can.

Is it at least possible to go to Firefox and perform some basic functions?

Fwiw, it's been totally fine for me on FF for at least a week.

Unusable in Chrome for me, FF is OK (but not preferred).

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

It's slower today in IE8 and FF than it was 2 days ago.

3.4ghz P4 Northwood
2gb PC3200
80gb 8mb WD SE
NVidia GeForce 6600LE
2.6mb/s DSL connection
Windows XP SP3, tweaked & squeaky clean.

Takes 5-6 seconds between the time I click a link and the moment it arrives, 10 seconds min. for a post to make it. -kd5-

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

Things continue to load slowly in Firefox. Almost every page just times out in Chrome.

Again very slow for me today. But I notice it only happens for me when that HTH Pool banner/commercial is above the threads. Coincidence?

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

This has been an ongoing issue for me too. I seem to have to stop and reload on a page a lot of times to get a topic/area of the forum to open. I was thinking it was on my end but it seems like others are having problems too.

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

For what it's worth, because of some new graphics in Firefox, I can see that the forum pages themselves (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/hot-deals-2/ , http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-home-theater-gear-5/ , etc.) connect and load relatively quickly, but individual thread pages load slowly when things are rough, which they are quite often.

The issues for me seem to be more towards the evenings. During the day it's not as bad.

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

Even Firefox isn't great today, I've had several pages fail to load. Chrome remains completely unusable. Kind of frustrating that this has continued for weeks to months. Isn't this hurting site traffic and ad revenue?

Frustrating for us as well. I'm keeping on top of it and will pass along info as I have it...

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

It seems to me like it gets worse with each passing day. It's taking longer today to load each page, and longer to submit a post in a thread than it has in days past. Just cleaned up junk files, defragged, and scanned for crap, computer's squeaky clean. -kd5-

Re: Forums Slow Loading Lately?

It's taking 8 to 10 seconds for a page to load, longer for a post to make it, and so far I've gotten 3 Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage messages trying to get here, make a post, and move from one page to another, as if the site's connectivity is sporadic. -kd5-

Yep, lots of Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage here, too.

Please hang in there -- tech is aware and we're just trying to schedule some time to look at this.

I hope it isn't the same schedule that tech is working on to bring us a decent mobile option.

Sorry, it had to be said.
