    Forum Setup

    Seems very Windows 95. Is this a temporary setup?

      So "retro" it feels like I'm using a 56kbps modem again - all that's missing is the chirruping handshake tone...

       
      Under my gruff exterior lies an even gruffer interior...

        It is very, very slow to load. What a great way to discourage forum participation.

                Slow to load plus the page appears to be larger than my screen, which when I scroll up or down, the page wanders left or right!

                A tad annoying but not being a computerist, could the page issue be a computer set up issue?

                Any clues?

                Thanks

                      It is so slow as to be essentially unuseable, I'm rapidly losing interest in visiting.

                        Its being worked on - there are multiple issues at present. It did briefly get faster on Friday, but now appears to be slower than ever.

                        The team at Key are working on it - I don't think they expected the issues that we are seeing.

                            Please consider that even though things don't seem to be broken at first sight, running outdated forum software can put all of our account details at risk. So it is good to see that the admins regularly update the forum software, even though that can cause other issues to pop up. Hopefully these will be resolved soon.

                              It was broken - so it did need to be updated. It will come right in time.

                                    They are? The appalling communication is part of the issue. No warning. Obvious performance issues not followed up with even a 'Report issues here' thread (doing this pre-emptively would have given a much better sense that things were being managed). No apology. No stated plan, or progress reports.
                                    Which leaves users feeling abandoned, and much more likely to decide not to bother.
                                    There could be several people working hard on fixing things. Or one person only allowed to work on it when other duties permit.
                                    All of which is rough on those working on things, and mods who are tainted by association when they have no power to do anything about it.

                                      It is painful to use and i suspect many people won't bother much longer

                                        Errol,

                                        There is a complete sub forum for issues with the forum.

                                        The update had been announced some months ago, and whilst it may not have been common knowledge, it was known about.

                                        It is starting to improve - the speed is a little better today, and posting isn't taking as long. At the end of the day, its a service that is provided at no cost to its users.
