Coming late to the party -
If typing is slow - this is nothing to do with your data connection. Nothing is sent until you hit 'post' or the equivalent. It must be a local problem - understanding that the web page is local on your PC once you've loaded it.

YMMV

"It must be a local problem "
Yes and no. Sometimes one particular web site or page will be dog slow while others won't, as a result of improper coding or Too Much Stuff being loaded from the slow web page. Like active-x and other scripting technologies that may cause problems in specific browsers or versions, while cleaner web sites don't have those problems.

When I hit "new posts" on Sailnet, the drop-down deploys glacially slowly. Some pages also open very slowly--and start to paint in odd positions before they finish loading. That's all signs of "bad" coding on the web page. There are too many fancy tools and active technologies (and some are brought in by ad links) these days.

That is the stuff I am seeing [by the way I typed the previous before any of it showed on the screen] and it is keeping me from using the site.

I can't take it.

If it was just a slow connection I could understand and learn to live with it like I did in the past but there are so many other places to be that waiting in line at this one is not fun for me.

Some one send me a note when it is better.
Thanks.
Bye.

That's why I was specifically talking about typing and connection speeds, as well as the web page being local once downloaded.

FWIW - I'm using Firefox and see none of the ill effects being described.

If it was local after the page was downloaded then why is it only Sailnet. I go to several forum regularly that even have the same layout but slightly different color schemes. They all look the same. Only Sailnet can't move it along.

Oops, I came back anyway, dang!

Thereapy,

I have alerted the management and they are working on it. I will say that I have not had any issues today. Many members do not have any issues, but some like you and me do periodically.

I would hope that the content and relationships here are worth waiting a few seconds for a page to load. I hope that we can even get that fixed shortly. I think it has something to do with the ads, and nothing with the forum. I think that is why you are seeing it Sailnet specific. The ads come in through Google, IIRC, so we do not have direct control over what they do (if that makes sense).

Hang around and be patient with us.

Yea, but it is hard being conditioned for years to "get it now".

It was something to do with the ads the last few times it hapened too.

PS every time I "submit" the bottom left of my browser says "waiting for" and then the address. Don't know why the typing (local problem?) is slow to fill.

I ain't no geek. I can fix most anything using my hands. Using a keyboard and mouse to fix stuff is still beyond me, probably for this whole lifetime too.

My connection to Sailnet has been a little slow from time to time over the last two weeks but not unbearable at all.

So when I click "POST" and it takes over a minute for the message to post...That's not a Sailnet server-side issue, that's my browser, huh? (G)
