very few are "ruining threads for everyone"

what about pre-existing external hosted images - I've lots hosted at photobucket, directly linked in posts going back a decade

some may not want to give away copyright images to diyAudio - but allow viewing

The image posting is something we will work out. It does cause a lot of problems, excessive bandwidth use and lost images. Not everyone knows how to do it well.

Jason,

Everything is OK now. Thanks.

P.S. No linking to external images. videos etc. seems like a good idea.

Been unable to connect to the site for a few minutes. I kept trying and refreshing the pages. The "is it down for everyone" check reports instantly its up

After around 4 minutes it connected and I tried the pingdom. That showed things a bit slow.

(Problem first noted around 8.10am gmt. IE10 W7 x64)

Edit... I meant 8:10 BST

The main problem is threads having enormous images breaking them and link rot - we will find a solution. The problem is the functionality of the forum being broken, either from images vanishing when the hosting service they used goes down or from images that aren't resized effectively.

Totally understand the copyright issues - people who want to retain copyright could create textual links to their images if they so desired. No biggy. But the forum has to look good and work effectively.

Great to hear.

The forum has worked this way for several years (usernames with non a-z and space). I know it's not ideal. I am in the processing of seeing if we can fix this

Thanks for the bug report. I did see this blip and associated performance carnage. The good news is that 90% of the time now everything is smooth sailing. Once or twice a day things are jamming up - this could be many reasons, but I'll track it down....

agreed, Jason, I had many of the issues posted in this thread yesterday too, thought it was something at this end initially as I didnt see any other reports from people when I looked here, then all of a sudden it was fixed again, didnt like lazy loading. but now mate, the forum is really flying performance wise, finally its not making my 100Mbit cable and i5 into a dog, waiting to load tiny amounts of data.

so thanks for the hard work mate!

I also found for a while I was getting crosshairs instead of an arrow for pointer, but thats fixed too. however I have also read that this could be linked to recently safari (dont always use it but this release is fast) and apple not supporting adobe pdf view in the browser anymore since the legal issues between the companies, so since it wasnt working correctly I removed the plugin and its back to normal, so we'll see I guess. was this a problem you noticed too? I didnt specifically notice if it was fixed straight after removing the adobe plugin from safari or not

If it's of any help, I noticed a performance decrease this morning (CET) just after "is performing nightly maintenance.."

Before the maintenance it was flying, just after it was crawling.

It ok now.
