Neowin: A speed bump on the Information Superhighway.

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 don't think he means moderators. We have no access to the database.

Although I haven't encountered any speed issues with browsing or posting, I'm hopeful that the upgrade to IPB 3.4 will make things a little faster.

To say we don't know about the issue at hand is a bit sad. We do, its just don't think anyone currently knows what the cause of it is or how to fix it.

Open up a ticket with IPB :woot:

^^ What these guys have said (if the Admins haven't done this already). If IPB is a paid for product, then wouldn't Invision have a responsibility to ensure it is working as designed and identify flaws? I'm aware of the tweaks and additions made by the Admins here to the board, but it shouldn't prevent IPB support from suggesting things that could be at fault.

If IPB is still as widely used as I think it is, they must have the experience from other customers to be able to assist in diagnosing issues such as performance.

Also, I've never noticed problems with loading on the board (or the time taken to post this actually).

Could not agree more that this site and posting to it are totally unbearable and has been for months now, for me!

Only visit here once in the morning and MAYBE once at night, where as I used to visit here MANY times a day.

I've had it take as long as 9 minutes to post once!!

Usually when I have speed issues clearing my cache seems to fix it up.

It was horrible in Chrome sometimes.

I have seen the speed issue in the forums from time to time but it's nothing to write home about. Besides I don't see why he is complaining, he is receiving this great site for free and if I am not mistaken Neowin is tech and help forum not a Nascar racetrack. If he wants to leave may he have a nice day and a wonderful life wherever he decides to go.

FYI - Forums running just fine for me, the actual browsing and all that seems to load fine......

.... except "Saving post" still kills me it seems when trying to post. Doing it on this post now for this reply and it just gets stuck there. Had to copy the text, refresh the page then paste it then post and it flew right through.

(Windows 8 and IE10).

There's no button to like posts in the mobile view what happened?

Also I get the lag in posting often as well.

Redmak disabled the reputation system for now.

Edit: I haven't experienced any of the slow loading except for the "saving post" as Shotta mentioned. But at least currently, it's instantaneous.

I don't think it's related to facebook or whatnot unless that's code that runs server side?

I've got (and have had) facebook disconnect for a long time, plus all facebook domains statically resolve to a local network IP with a basic web server that displays an empty page and the site still runs slow randomly.

Woop for like button's return!

IPB has helped us in the past with issues like these. Although I think the current issues are all us and not IPB, why? Because we haven't upgraded IPB for at least a year or more?

I'm also interested to know what can be "pruned" from the database without losing content? I'm pretty sure all logs are already rotated so they don't get huge.

Yeah, that's a bad idea letting me do that! :p

Can anyone on Chrome experiencing issues test these 2 guys out for me?

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...ibcbegplfmcfigp

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.)

I literally never see slow downs and would like to know if it's related. It will help you rule out Facebook as the issue at the very least.

Installed them both but they block the ads too, so disabled them because I was too lazy to find out how to whitelist ads.

I've realized that lives of many people would be incomplete if they didn't have a chance to complain about every little thing.

This is especially true when talking about a product or service that doesn't cost them anything.
