Oh.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
My.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
Dear.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

I know the issue of slowness has cropped up before. I've been waiting for the problem to sort itself out or get sorted out.<br><br><br><br>
I don't mean to complain (except that I do) but is there nothing that can be done to speed up this site?<br><br><br><br>
I am not and never have never been part of a forum that was as consistently slow before.<br><br><br><br>
I know squat about forums and servers and whatnot. I just know that editing, previewing and submitting posts don't take my but a nanosecond on other forums. ESPECIALLY editing a post, holy flaming titmice.<br><br><br><br>
Cheers!<br><br>

It is quite slow for me too. Sometimes I have to right-click and go to "open in new window" for it to work. I hope that whatever is causing this may be fixed.

I'm not too sure that anything will be done all that soon about the sluggishness, I think Michael has other priorities right now --> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"> <-- <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Myself and about a dozen other's have been waiting two months so far for the software problem to be fixed in regards to changing of passwords. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I had the idea that VB slowed down during the past 2 weeks, but wasn't sure if it had something to do with my webwasher problem (which doesn't seem to be a problem right now).<br><br>
Would placing some older threads in an archive help? Or am I lightyears away from a solution?

Trust me, it's a priority. We're not sure what's causing it and will probably end up moving to a more powerful server. This one should be more than sufficient so I'm not sure that'll help but it couldn't hurt. Since I don't know much about this I need to wait for the "server guy" to find time. I'll try to keep everyone updated.

'Sluggish' is an understatement. The sun became nova while I was posting a comment, and by the time this post I'm now writing will reach you, I will long since have been gone.

It's not bad at all at the moment. It's been slow for me sometimes when posting or editing, but usually when just browsing the speed is acceptable, although sometimes a little bit slow.<br><br><br><br>
I've read that MySQL databases tend to be slow on large tables (many rows) if one is not careful when designing the tables. Since it's probably difficult / not possible to redesign the database (without rewriting the software etc), moving old threads to an archive, as Lothar suggested, might alleviate the problem...<br><br><br><br>
Just my two pence <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You're the expert. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I would say that the waiting is the harderst part.<br><br><br><br>

The board was agonizingly slow for a number of days before we were given a message that it was being addressed. Board members don't expect every problem to be fixed immediately, but they are certainly less likely to whinge if they know admin is aware of a problem and is trying to do something about it.
