Change load order to fix problems?

By jdclyde ·
I have noticed for quite some time (as have others) that the pages hang or delay when looking for i.i.com.com and the doubleclick pages.

How about making it so the ads load AFTER the discussions?

I understand that the ads are important and are what pay for the services we are recieving, but if the ads prohibit people from browsing the discussions, I would think less people are going to WANT to browse the discussions leaving less people to see the ads in the first place.

Just a thought, as this has been going on for over a month now.

We are looking at a few options

We are looking at a few options to resolve the page hanging issues. We are still trying to pinpoint exactly what is causing the delay with i.i.com.com.

I'll keep you all posted on what we find.

Thanks for the feedback.

Smorty71 something that I've noticed recently

When I open a Discussion page the Banner Add will load and then nothing at all will make the rest of the page load hitting refresh or going back to the original URL only comes up with the Banner Add.

Now I'm going to learn all about what M$ is doing to keep us honest people in work.

I haven't got an enforcement alert for at least 4 weeks now.

Actually if there was no MS Logo there it could be the Q Continuum which I need to visit for a few centuries so when I return I'll be so out of date that I'll be unemployable.

This website really, really is very, very slow

by M_a_r_k In reply to Change load order to fix ...

It really is consistently the slowest web site I use regularly. Slowest by far. Nothing else even compares. Not even close. It is bad. Really, really bad. If Yahoo was this slow, their stock would tank and they'd be out of business within two months. I guarantee it. Same with CNN or AOL or any other web site that gets several thousand times as much traffic as TR. This is 2006, not 1986. What's so difficult about creating a web site that at least loads page consistently in less than 45 seconds? I did an experiment just now. I accessed the web page for this discussion. In another IE window, I simultaneously loaded Yahoo's home page. I kept hitting Refresh on the Yahoo page while waiting for this TR page to load. Yahoo's page loaded 30 times while TR's creeped along. I actually stopped at 30. My index finger was getting tired of clicking. And I didn't want to wear out my Refresh button. :)

Part of the problem may be that a lot of these ads seem to use Macromedia Flash Player. Why do those ads ALWAYS load immediately within microsecnds and the stuff we really want to see--the simple stuff like basic text--can't seem to load?

Seems simple

by jdclyde In reply to This website really, real ...

look HARD at what they CHANGED and change it back.

Rocket science.

The HAVE to know enough about tech that they did SOME testing of the code before roll out AND didn't run the tests over a 10/100 network connection. Or do they? Testing locally?

I am befudled that it would/could/should take over a month to resolve the same few problems. All having to do with as MARK pointed out, at getting the SIMPLE part of the page to load.

Again, change the order of the load or change it back to the way it used to load.

It's more like I'm too fast

by M_a_r_k In reply to After all the double post ...

as in impatient. I've learned to select and copy EVERY message that I submit before I click the Submit button. If I get the expected "Page requested not found", I usually back up a couple of pages to the discussion page, and refresh to see if the post actually got submitted. If it did not, I resubmit by posting my copied message back into a brand new posting. It's an absolute pain going through all those steps just to submit a post. Sometimes I get impatient and just don't give a rip if the message actually gets submitted twice or not so I'll do a refresh on the "Page requested not found" page. In those cases, sometimes the message gets submitted twice.

BTW, what in the world is "pebkac"?
