I've been noticing slow page loading on basically every page I load up regardless of time of day for a couple of weeks now, and wasn't sure if it was just me or others were also experiencing the problem. It was never meant to be a personal dig, but I'm just trying to figure it out.


I appreciate the gesture, but there is no need for apologies. I just took a couple of comments the wrong way.

It was very much a case of bad timing with RL knocking me around that day, logging on, then reading a couple of things from you and DefiantClient that managed to get to me (e.g. "I've noticed the slower load time for pages. It's pretty annoying, honestly"), prompted a knee-jerk reaction thinking to myself "do these guys think I'm doing this on purpose?". I've had at least one person leave prior to the site upgrade because he thought I was personally spamming him with PM notification e-mails. So, despite what I'm going through I felt pressure to fix the site.

I know you guys aren't out to stir things up. Del has been great to me as both a friend and supporter of AST. Although I don't know DefiantClient from what I've seen he's become another popular and valued member of this little community.

You just have to take me as I am these days. Not my usual P.C. happy-happy, joy-joy admin self. I am easily bothered, quick to lash out, and this upgrade not going according to plan didn't help (my fault, nothing to do with the dev). I feel like I'm damned no matter what I do, but I will get this done and done right.

That's why I'm glad Scotchyn is around to be the AST frontman, set a good example and handle business.

Del wrote:However, I did just notice something that might be browser related. I'm using IE 11 and have no problems at other forums, just this one, and only since the partial upgrade. I also use FireFox and have no lag at all - everything is fine. Now, I haven't been to any other forums that have a new upgrade, so perhaps the new software doesn't work well with IE 11, which isn't all that hard to understand. The IE browser is soon to be history anyway, so that may be where the problem lies. Not sure if that helps, but thought I would share.


It does help. IE is still THE browser of choice, even though many use Firefox and Chrome. The more I read about new gremlins the more I think it's something with the host. I will add it to the list and consult with the dev when I have the chance.

I've been looking through the quick links for the New Posts ensemble. And that's been working fine.

But as I was getting done looking through the list I went back to the Board Index and noticed a highlighted entry: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=3700

This one never got listed in the new topics- despite it being updated the night before.

Just thought I'd let someone know.


That's one of those things that will no doubt be hard to replicate, but it is exactly the type of bug spotting / weirdness I want to hear about. People would rather leave a site than stay and help fix it. I don't blame them for that, it's just the way things are these days. That's why the folks that help out are vital to getting this site looking good and working as it should.

I don't have any problems (I use Chrome) and I see the "Donate" button is back, so it's all good ! ;)

Just a minor quibble. This morning going through the quick link "new posts". All of the "new" was checked, but double checking with the board index- I found at least 5 more highlighted discussions that weren't included in the new.

This morning I had to re login; Several topics were highlighted as being new on the Board Index, but going through Quick Links- "No criteria matched this search" or equivalent.

I tried posting a few pics twice now and each time it didn't work. I could post a text message, but anything with a pic in it wouldn't go. happened to me yesterday too.

No updates have been made, so this is odd to have posting problems all of a sudden. That said, Windows has caused problems, our host hasn't been much help, there are updates/tweaks galore, and I have fallen behind big time since summer 2016.

To all,

My apologies. Please pass this on to anyone else that might be having problems so we don't lose disgruntled members over these types of things.

List any problems in point form (with a list of actions that I could replicate).
When the problem(s) occurred.
If the problem(s) are still happening.

To the rest,

List anything you deem as a tech problem or general concern (again, with information I can use to replicate said problem or show a dev what you tried).
