Believe me when I say, everyone here would like to replace IPB lol

  • Remove integration with social media, reputation, paste formatting and all the extra crap.
  • Replace IPB with FluxBB.

  • PROFIT!!

I have to say I nearly never see load time issues. The worst I've seen is like, 5 seconds to post.

I have all facebook/twitter etc linky things blocked.

For those encountering issues with Chrome, perhaps take a look at:

https://chrome.googl...akheieifhpjdfeo

Neither app has ever caused my problems, and it's dramatically improved my browsing life (I'm in what's called a Congestion Zone in Australia. We have an 8mbps connection, but the back haul isn't even close to being able to provide that speed for us and those around us.)

Redesign Neowin with touch tiles and a new Metro UI, that would speed things up!

How about disabling the 'saving text' thing I see a lot whilst typing. If my browser crashes or I accidentally close the tab, I've lost the 'saved post' anyway and know no way to get it back so surely disabling it would speed things up without removing any features?

That's executed in local JS.

It shouldn't make a difference to performance of the server >.<

Really? I assumed it sent a copy of the reply you've typed to the server to store :s

Or Vanilla!

I still the DB queries are to blame since the home page is relatively quick. But then again, you could easily find out.

It's to stop double posting, and its a great setting for a forum to have, there is no reason to have 3 separate posts from the same member one after another, grouping them makes perfect sense unless you're a spammer



How exactly is not knowing a lame excuse?

Do you know the cause? Do you know how to fix it? No, so stop giving staff sh*t for no knowing either.

And as for your OP, bye bye then, I'm sure you'll be greatly missed

Everyone wants the site to run perfectly, report the issue and carry on, if Neowins speed issues are causing your life to collapse, and in such a way you need to leave, you have bigger issues you need to address

EDIT - I guess this explains your childish outburst

What are you so butt hurt about? Someone expressing an opinion?
I guess from now on I will just have to shut up and not complain about anything on this site, since this apparently sends you into a tizzy.

There's entire threads dealing with more or less the same issues, with at least one of them being official.
But no. You gotta put on your shining armour, get up on your high horse, and smite all detractors.

What I do during my weekends ticks you off too? Well, well.

No, I'm in the same bag as detection.

You didn't just come out and say the site has issues and farewell. You came out and attacked the site proper.

Feel free to complain, but there's a difference between complaining and being a dick. Hell, you can do whatever you want, but expect people to call you out if you go about it wrong.

Also, look at my horse, my horse is amazing..

IMHO, you answered your own question. As you pointed out, there are already threads, with at least one of them being pretty official, yet you felt the need to create another thread instead of posting in one of them. Seems a tad self serving from those observing.

I thought there was a plan to build a forum off of the Ignition concept from the home page?

I use IE10 and I don't have any problems whatsoever, on my surface or on my desktops. Are we sure these issues aren't browser specific?
