    While on this topic ...
    Why does this IPB forum feel so slow ?
    - try the scrollbar ... it doesn't scroll smooth. Too many images ?
    - the whole site seems slow to me (and I don't like it because I love the content)

    Wow .. interesting stuff !
    Does the site's performance feel slow to you too ?

    The first display was very slow, then it's correct.

    Why is the scrollbar so choppy ?
    When I drag ... it's not smooth at all. (latest Chrome on windows).
    Maybe I am used to Xenforo's smoothness.

    I am on a 100 meg connection and the page never stopped showing up as loading if that tells you anything.

    too much stuff fixed to the viewport (background, bar at bottom)

    Amazingly firefox seems to handle it better than chrome, used to be firefox was the one that slowed to an absolute crawl

    Chrome doesn't handle images too well, I've found, especially high resolution images.

    Does anyone know a "Mega" images thread in Xenforo that would slow Chrome ?
    [besides my relentless screengrabbing :ROFLMAO:]

    I'm pretty sure that if the computer I'm on was sentient that it would just hate me.

    Not sure if this position got filled.
    Certainly the website is slower than ever !
    If you applied and didn't get the job ... you might want to re-apply !
    FYI, I know nothing about the job.
    Is the slowness "all because of the ads" ?

    The golf knowledge at this site is incredible. But the site slowness is horrible.
    Before I just tell them "switch to xenforo" :) .... any performance suggestions ?

    Adam ... any thoughts why this page is so slow ?


    I know there are lots of ads, but it must be something else.
    A page with no YouTube is a bit faster, sometimes ?

    Apparently they are upgrading their servers.
    Besides the ads .... to me the answer is : IPB is slow, and maybe their desktop theme is bad.
    Thoughts ?

    Loading it in FF is not too bad, not brilliant though. But Chrome is really bad loading that page up. Opera isn't too far off same as FF. It is slow though, but Chrome is chronic for browsing that site. Small banner images appear to self hosted, so that's not causing a delay in being pulled from another external site. Not sure what seems to be causing it their.

    Bad host maybe?

    I use Chrome and it's bad.
    I'll definitely try Firefox. I have been trying it.
    But I'll double down now.

    That page loads aok for me, on firefox and IE.

    If I can offer a tip though? lower the amount of threads displayed per forum.

    Seems like an awfully long page.

    Are they/you running Xache or memcache?
