I see only two. maxwell edison July 17, 2013 at 4:27pm PST Maybe they're lost -- along with the rest of the site. Or maybe the remaining twelve are generating as slow as the rest of the site, and they are still waiting to appear. + 0 Votes The new TechRepublic is painfully slow JJFitz July 17, 2013 at 5:08am PST Page loads are measured in minutes and "My Stuff" is empty. + 0 Votes 60 r_vasanthakumar August 1, 2013 at 7:16pm PST 60 + 0 Votes What a cluster.........yeah. aidemzo_adanac July 16, 2013 at 3:55pm PST Navigation is pretty straight forward, obviously not optimized and cached properly yet as it is slow as molasses and returns a lot of errors but eventually wakes up and gets with the program. First impressions, without doing ANYTHING but stumbling around and posting this comment, I like the layout better. Colour scheme and design, although very similar, is much better. I don't know that I care for the three sites, Australia, UK, US it could break up our global community, unless Forums are amalgamated. Again though, I have done nothing yet and it's just the very first impression I get. Everyone here knows I like to challenge and that I hated the last layout, but I have to give TR props this time, based on what I've seen so far. One issue I absolutely DESPISE though, because of feedback I've had in other sites I've managed, is the CAPTCHA!! I understand it's to TRY and reduce spammers, but they rarely work anymore. Spammers get around the captcha on several other sites i manage too. the annoying ones here are not bots, they are usually people manually creating accounts and posting, so the concept is a failure from the get go. For regular users, nothing but a pain in the arse. PERHAPS, it is just when posting a new thread (lightbulb gently flickers on overhead) and is not required for follow up posts, guess I'll find out myself in a second. EDIT: Nope, ALL posts need CAPTCHA, what a useless pain in the butt! It won't stop spammers here as most seem to be humans! I can see what they did, where they wanted to go and what they were trying to achieve with the revamp, I think it's mainly there with a few major website marketing faux pas but it's a tech site, what do you expect? I think someone properly trained in website desing and, more importantly sales/marketing, can fix it still but I'm sure that it's okay for TR anyway. New TR is said to be FASTER! I'll give it a few days, slow as molasses right now. I wonder if the BLOGS page was tongue in cheek or a Freudian slip. BLOG ROLL?!?!? That'll be fun for the UK site, look up Bog Roll. + 0 Votes testing Slayer_ August 8, 2013 at 11:03am PST Does the site work yet? + 1 Votes Wow it worked finally Slayer_ August 8, 2013 at 11:02am PST I can finally say this is the worst site design ever. front page websites made by 12 year old girls in 1995 looked and worked better than TR does now. So I am leaving. I'll check this site in 6 months maybe. + 0 Votes Is the community section back now? captainjolly Moderator July 24, 2013 at 10:43pm PST I'm posting again to see if this works. Hopefully you will have all these features back working again soon!
