question Poor site performance

22 posts in this topic

Firstly, one cannot tag a post according to the problem experienced. The (non-modifiable) existing tags are pathetic in their range.

Secondly, as I have said before, this site is a speed bump on the Internet.

Today was especially bad. Access to the site was practically non-existent.

This used to happen from time to time with Neowin. Lately, it's a feature.

The management of Neowin continually glosses over these glaring deficiencies, shortchanging visitors to this site.

Question: How come every other site I visit on the Internet works fine, but Neowin is dependably slow?

Give it a few days. There are a number of deficiencies in the version of IP.Board we're currently on and we will be upgrading Sunday.

Remember, nobody owes you anything, so you should probably drop the attitude.

I'd imagine the extra slowness is to do with the database workings with the imminent upgrade this weekend.

Most of the bigger websites operate on huge budget so they can afford up to date hardware. Neowin is run off ads with subscriptions as well. Bare in mind, you're probably not going to make too much money on ads as you'd think on a site like this as many members use an adblock. That means they can't always offer the best bandwidth or hardware.

Also, IP Board is a clunky slow ass mofo

What attitude? I am making a complaint in a part of the forum that is there for the explicit purpose, and this constitutes an attitude?

Thank you. I appreciate the explanation.

"existing tags are pathetic"

"this site is a speed bump on the Internet."

"The management of Neowin continually glosses over these glaring deficiencies"

"shortchanging visitors to this site."

If you don't see an attitude there, then you have some issues.

Please don't argue in the site support forum. We're doing our best to smooth out the bumps right now. ;)

At the moment we are making changes to accommodate the upgrade, we're also aware of the slowdowns which may have to do with a DDoS, which is also under investigation.

Question: How come every other site I visit on the Internet works fine, but Neowin is dependably slow?

1. Have you contacted any of the members of staff to suggest this as a feature or to find out if the devs can make it better?

2. The recent slowdowns as explained are down to the database being modified ready for the upgrade on Sunday, Neowin has worked perfectly fine for me both at work and at home

3. see above

4. see above

5. The staff on Neowin are generally very helpful, some people attitudes on the site does not help though, would you rather help someone who spoke nicely to you and explained there feeling more or less than someone that came here ranting??

I have contacted staff on numerous occasions in relation to problems with people on here or bugs etc found on the site and have always been responded to in a polite and timely manner

as i say unless you ask someone or let someone know the issue your having in a Polite manner then they dont know about the problems and cant help

Some forums have predetermined tags, if you want others request it. I'm still no wiser to which forum you mean and which tags are lacking/need changing :)

You are making a complaint <- That's the problem.

You aren't asking a question, making a suggestion, giving (constructive) criticism; you are complaining like a self entitled <insert non-abusive noun here for the sake of me not getting warned>.

Regardless of whether you intended to "have an attitude", I'd say you came across as having a rather strong one..

Painfully slow page loading today. Browsing through unread posts, some have taken 10-15 seconds to load. Other sites are all snappy.

Edit: 19 seconds to create this post.

It may have already been covered before but how come you don't enable keep-alive on the server? From experience on my sites it's worked great

Upgrade coming this weekend (just a reminder again). There will surely be some bumps while we do it, so just be prepared. Many of the bugs should be solved, but we will only truly know after the upgrade is complete. A little patience will go a long way........

Does seem significantly better, and no more connection reset messages. (Y) Bring on the upgrade!
