Maybe Neowin needs to start deleting topics like "Formerly forums about to reach <x> posts" and things like that? :p

Disabling the reputation system doesn't seem to have made any difference to the speed. Browsing the forums is still fine, and submitting posts is still slow for me.

This has been an issue since neowin upgraded to IPB 3 (remember that nightmare? LOL). It probably has a lot to do with IPB itself coupled with some of the addons that are specific to this forum.

I personally never had any performance issues with IPB forums that I used to run, but I will agree that it was an absolute bitch to manage.

I never had speed issues with IPB either, but I had no real modifications and I pruned the database regularly, cleaned out old logs and database data. From what I hear keeping the mods working is a real pita for Neowin's staff

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't trust mods with access to prune/clean the database. That's a task reserved for Admins and Developers IMO.

I always thought it was an IE10 problem. JS problems with editing and submitting posts. I just refresh page - changes show up.

Nah, not limited to IE 10, I see it in Chrome here. All other sites I go to are fine, and my connection isn't experiencing any congestion so I know it's not that.

Stick a 'beta' sign on the logo, that should speed things up by about 15% :shiftyninja:

Yeah, here's another vote for "put the rep system back and get rid of the Facebook tie-in". Sod Facebook!

I have to agree on this one. The main site isn't that slow, it's rather the whole forum. Saving posts takes around 30 seconds.


Are you logged in via Facebook by chance, I have noticed a slowdown for many different styles/brands of PC's browsing any site with a like button or the ability to sign in using Facebook.
