Not sure which AD is doing it. this just started today. I use firefox btw. Threads are reloading over and over. Seems to be related to a flash AD at the bottom of the screen but I can't be sure. When it happens my browser doesn't seem to update the new posts for each thread. I have to hit reload...

strange.

We've been fiddling with some options a bit in order to optimize page load speed. I think I know which option would require some folks to hit reload to see new posts and I've switched it back, so things should be 'normal' again.

Ok, I'm replying to you as a test. I noticed it happens pretty severe after I post... I had to hit repload to see your post btw. :)

EDIT: that worked better, although the AD at the bottom causes the whole page to shift up when it finally loads. Just saying. :)

Thanks for helping either way!

DVinfo on slow mo?

The last 36 hours, DVinfo either won't load a page at all or takes three minutes to do so, sometimes even giving IE8 enough excuse to declare the link down.

Anyone else experiencing this?

None of my other on - line sites are exhibiting the same bahaviour, and I've done all the usual "fix the link" tasks such as removing cookies etc.

Win XP, btw.

Interesting, even the typer is slow, any chance a bug has piggy backed in here?

And, despite the fact that I loaded this page over 10 minutes ago, it's still showing the page as not fully downloaded.

Working fine here in the US; been on it all day yesterday.
Win 7, the latest IE. Chrome even faster.

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Is it just me, or is the forum server slow again?

All other Internet connections are fine, Also, dvinfo.net is usually also quite fast, too - but not today...

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

I had a lot of problems the last day or so (and often could not get on DVinfo at all despite razor fast connection to all other websites).

I was even on the verge of emailing Chris thinking that my IP address had some how been (erronously) blocked!!!!

Seems OK now through - maybe we shoulod blame it on the huge CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) the sun just threw our way!

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

This may have been mentioned and I missed it here (I did skim through all the pages) but I always see only a reply button on the last post of any page (not just the last post in a thread), never a reply-with-quote button. The multi-quote is there but not the reply-with-quote. I did figure out that you just use multi-quote with the reply button, but it seems strange that there is a difference. Is this normal or a bug?

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Hi Alen, it's completely intentional. The idea is to prevent the needless quoting of an immediately preceding post. Point being, since the preceding post comes right before, there's seldom any real need to quote it -- because it's already in plain view and therefore easy to reference. We set it up this way after getting a number of complaints about quoted posts cluttering up the flow of a thread... it's a pain to have to read a string of immediate quotes, it's like having to read everything twice, when there's no real reason or need for it.

If you find yourself wanting to reference one part of a longer immediately preceding post, the workaround is to click the multi-quote button on that post and then hit reply -- and then pare down the quoted section to just the relevant lines. It's pretty easy to do. The main thing though is that we have cut down tremendously on the amount of useless quotes simply by making it less easy to needlessly quote an immediately preceding post. Hope this helps,

Yup. That's the only reason I would need to do that. Like I just did. :)

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

Am I the only one that couldn't access the site since last night at midnight? I'm glad things are back to normal, I thought my browser had been hijacked. I couldn't access any dvinfonet pages.

Nope - I couldn't access it all morning either. Looked like the domain hadn't been re-registered...

Seems to be working fine now though.

Re: Any site / server problems -- post here.

The problem was the same here in UK earlier today, links were directed to a domain host holding page, but it now seems to be back on track. Thank goodness, how much poorer would life be without DVinfo?
