Thanks, yes, it's something we're investigating.
Cool, I'm glad -- The site usually stalls a bit when I make a new post during the saving process, but there are a ton of times I just get tired of waiting and click on the forum link, then click on the thread and check to make sure what I posted is there and I'd say over half the time when I get the "Post Accepted Redirecting" [or whatever the exact wording is]
message after posting, when I look down at the bottom of the browser it says something about in.getclicky.com. There are not many times it stalls like that and says anything about "connecting to" webmasterworld.com -- Sure, sometimes it does, but I post a bunch and that stuff happens. It's when it's consistently a specific site I decide to say something.
However, I'm not sure Clicky is the culprit.
Well, I'm pretty sure I've seen it on other sites too, like some major major ones -- I don't remember of the top of my head, but I think one day abcnews.go.com stalled out on "clicky" so bad [over a minute more than once -- all I really remember is thinking "oh, wow, they use that "stuff" too? Unreal...]
I finally went somewhere else.
I'm not the average complainer, cause I write a bit of code and understand "stuff" [making sure lawman doesn't need to edit again ;)]
happens, but as fast or slow as you think WebmasterWorld is, I've been a member here for almost 9 years and when I look to see what's stalling out, it's not WebmasterWorld it's one of the external resources, like twitter, facebook, and most recently clicky.
I wouldn't just "bring it up" to "say something", because there's no benefit to me in that -- When the site stalls out on me lately most of the time all I see "connecting to in.getclicky.com" or "transferring data from in.getclicky.com"
Does me no good to "tell a story", so please really look into things, because I've been around a bit, and until WebmasterWorld started adding external resources it was one of [if not the absolute]
fastest sites I've ever been on [no joke, I used to compare "real world load speed" of sites I was working on to WebmasterWorld and I've had sites I've been working on open in one tab and WebmasterWorld open in another more than once before to try to get a page to load as fast as they did here -- It took me days to get to where what I was working on loaded as fast "in the wild"]
, so I'm not quite sure how or why you're saying WebmasterWorld is slow -- Forget about the "testing software/services", be a real user and compare it to other sites for a while.
Before they added anything external here, I had to double check sometimes to see if a page refreshed and sometimes I would go from one forum to another and didn't notice the page changed, because it was that fast...
