    Lol .. 100 downloads is a milestone (But not for Images, I'm talking about Code snips).. then again wait till you get to 1000 , you throw a private party...
    I know there are downloads with more but here's one that absolutely ran away and shocked me when it when it hit over 10 000 ... (7 d/d Average)....

    What seems to be gone is the ability to rate threads (and that IMO used to be a rather productive tool especially in GD/CC, though I rarely used it myself). As a non-mod I can still see the post rating button too (didn't try if it works, though). Perhaps someone made an off-by-one regarding the vBulletin option to uncheck?

    Sure, the download count of images is rather irrelevant.

    I know there are downloads with more but here's one that absolutely ran away and shocked me when it when it hit over 10 000 ... (7 d/d Average)....
    Pretty cool! (However, the age of that attachment is more than twice the time I've been a member in total, so there's still some room for me to catch up... ) One of my most popular ones (humble 82 downloads by now) is kind of related to image processing too: a PNG file dump utility. Seems to be a popular topic in general. (The popularity of both that download and the thread it is in may have been boosted by the fact that there's a link to it in one of the MS support forums.)

    Your attachment is just approaching another jubilee BTW: As of now it's 1,996 days old.

    This site is now incredibly slow and incredibly unreliable for me. Has been since the upgrade. I can only get to it on maybe half the times I try, if I'm lucky. Even when it works, it's really, really slow. It's to the point it's almost unusable most of the time.

    GCDEF - Is it slow loading, responding, or just slow overall?


    Anyone else having "slow" issues? If so, please report this.

    Thanks,

    I have this (or a similar) problem too. Most of the time the site works quite ok for me; loading is not quite "light-speed" and a noticable bit slower than the old version, yet the usability is quite acceptable. Sometimes, however, I experience quite intolerable page load times. If it just started that day and I'm not too annoyed yet, I can go to the fridge (really relaxed, not running), get a fresh coke and when I'm back have opened it an drank a bit of it, the page may have loaded in the meantime. About just the same number of times this happens I lose my patience while waiting, hit the browser's Stop button and then click the link again. This may or may not take me to the desired page quickly now, with the "may not" being at an unsatisfying at least 60%, estimated. And these "sloth attacks" have a burst character: When it happens, the percentage of slow loads is massive, though not all of them are slow then.

    This site behavior is not completely new to me, BTW: I experienced that with the old forum software version as well. But the slow load times at least felt a good bit faster. Also, AFAIR "sloth attacks" were noticably less frequent, though this may subjectively distorted perception caused by the increased slow load time being more annoying.

    I haven't done that yet, but if you're interested, I may try to collect some rough timing values of the slow loads. I've just made a new version of my own stopwatch app and this may be a good occasion for another practice test (and simply playing with it... ).

    Platform: XP SP3 and IE8 on AMD dual core, not high-end but quite decent.

    All of that. Pretty much what Eri523 described. It took me about 10 minutes to reply to this post. Mostly if just hangs up saying "transferring data from forums.codeguru.com". Every once in a while it seems to respond properly and sometimes I get what appears to be just an unformatted HTML or XML script. Today is its worst day by a long way.

    It just happened to me again when switching to this thread in response to the notification mail (not using the link in the mail, though, in case that matters). This time, out of curiosity, I started the stopwatch: Result: 2:30 minutes until I got the page. This was the first time today, though. And if the post is not marked edited when you read it, it didn't happen again when submitting the post. I think I'd never be patient enough to wait whole ten minutes. Sometime during the 10 minutes I'd probably consider the CG site entirely crashed and simply close the browser tab.

    I think I've seen what you describe here too, though rarely. I'm no expert on that, but to me it looks like a missing CSS or something like that.

    The 10 minutes involved probably 5 different attempts. I didn't just click reply and let it sit. It's been responsive, although slow, for an hour or so now.

    Re: New Forum Update

    Whenever I receive an email, I click the link to view the relevant post but I'm often getting situations where the post is wider than my browser window. I end up having to use my browser's horizontal scroll bar to read the posts properly.

    I think a similar bug might have existed in the previous version - except in that case, the post width was neatly matched to my browser width. In other words, I never used to see the adverts (or a big white space) at the right hand side of my screen.

    I must admit that after a week or two using the new style site, I haven't really figured out what the improvements are. Most of the changes seem to be negative ones from what I can tell. The site has a klunky, amateurish feel to it now.

    Re: New Forum Update

    Don't know if this was a bug or just a coincidence....

    When editing a post (like I just edited my last one) sometimes I don't see the text I want to edit. I have to press 'Go Advanced' for the text to appear. Other times when I select 'Edit Post', the text appears straight away but the cancel button doesn't do anything.

    While testing this just now, the whole forum seemed to crash. For about 2 minutes I couldn't access it - even if I tried to select 'Forums' from the home page at codeguru.com.

    Can you provide the Link that causes this problem .. There was an Issue with the Code blocks that went as wide as the longest line, however that has been sorted (Added scrollers to the Code block)..
