Hey, Tim,

We did have an issue before with the response time of the site awhile back. What web browser are you using and on what computer platform? Last time, this was noticed, we had to do a computer trace and then send some diagnostic information to VerticalScope.

Is it all the web pages you've visited today? When was the first time you've noticed it?

Internet explorer and windows 7 here. I've noticed it as well. Not always. It's as fast as other sites around midnight Pacific time. Maybe the amount of net traffic has a factor?

Tim, how's it today for you? If it's still slow, let me know and we will set up a session to capture some diagnostic data for VerticalScope. What I notice periodically is what looks like continued loading in Firefox I am running on Windows 7.

Thanks!

Hello, Administrator,

I'd like to get some help to debug a slow performance problem that has been reported by a couple of folks in this thread.

I notice that for the past several weeks, I see "working" icons appearing in the tabs of my Firefox browser when access various pages. For me, I've spent the most time in the Voting Booth section creating new polls in the last few days. While I am able to get information posted, I still see the "blue donuts" indicating that the web page is either still being loaded or waiting on something.

I've previously seen this symptom before when other people had noticed slow performance with forms for replying to posts or creating new posts would take minutes to load. When I worked with the development people, I was able to capture some trace data from the Firefox browser and post it to a trace file capture site so they could download it. They found something in the web page code that was looping, resulting in slow performance.

Would someone please contact me so we can do some debugging and get this issue fixed? It's important at this time because our calendar voting polls need to have people able to use them and not wait minutes to get a response.

Thank you!

PS - I use Firefox 53.0.3 on a Windows 7 computer with 8GB of RAM. The original poster also uses Firefox but on a Windows 10 computer. As you see in the response above mine, another person sees slow response on a mobile device.

Loading a site such as this does many more things than most people could imagine.

Links to advertisers, web-use monitors, many more sites that have nothing to do with the Site, but have a Lot to do with monitoring what you are doing.

Like the sites which pop up an advertisement on IMBOC showing the same thing you just surfed Amazon about.

All this takes bandwidth.

Fact of life on a site which places ad-clicks over member satisfaction.

And then if you happen to click on a sub-forum in which someone has posted a lot of large pictures, you may as well go grab a sandwich.

Yes, it does take bandwidth, but I think there is something programatic going on in the background with respect to the click tracking. We've seen this before, where some callouts were taking longer than expected. I helped a couple of folks when saw this, and VerticalScope had to make a change, which eliminated the waiting.

A situation which does not tend to change my observation about excessive and intentional click-tracking activities...

Right. Clearly that's going on here since this forum is commercially owned. I am hoping that we get some response so we can work on...well, the response!

Administrator,


I've done some tracing using IE11's developer tools when accessing this page. I have put the results in a Pastebin entry located here - https://pastebin.com/WmAMiPjh


There are a number of informational messages but no warnings. I am going to try this with Firefox also, which is where I see the clocking.

Here is a Pastebin of this reply being posted using Firefox 53.03.3 (32-bit) - https://pastebin.com/U8AhBx6C. It is the server log responses.

These are the CSS messages that were logged.

Please note that I do not see slow response. I see that this tab in Firefox looks like it is continually clocking. See image where the indicator is. I also see Firefox with messages that say it is transferring data that stay on the screen continually.
