Oh, I understand that Dena. Completely. But there were already ads posted on FP above the forums, weren't there? And like Luv said, I got used to those and they didn't interfere with the entire page, like this new side bar will/is.

i find the pages load slower then today at 1:00pm EST i keep getting that the server was busy. It took me over 20 min to be able to read the thread i was trying to read. I haven't been doing much reading on here because i find the font is to small for me to read. My daughter did something and made the font for all web pages bigger so i am able to read it better.

I have noticed that my internet explorer won't load PT unless I go through yahoo. This has only started happening since the overhaul.

on post # 30 of aviv_e's "Hmm. Did I miss anything?" I see a little red x instead of whatever they were posting
but ONLY when viewing with Internet Explorer.
Also on Jades signature where her little yellow ribbon usually is all I see is a red x ... but again only when viewing with Internet explorer.

Perhaps everyone who uses Internet Explorer just need to clear their cookies ??

I know the pages load a lot faster for me in Fire fox than they do with IE.
I think it is a browser issue.

I don't mean to be annoying, but I am having serous issues still loading the site. I tried numerous times today, leaving it loading for over an hour once, and still wasn't able to get the site to load untill just now. Even when it does work, I usually have to wait around 5 minutes for the first page to load, which was never an issue before. Just thought I'd bring it up again, and mention that if I'm not around as much it's because I can't get the site to load!


a. If you all feel the page goes slow.
VERY!

b. Is there any improvment after the first page
Yes, I only seem to have problems with the first page, everything after that is slower then before, but not anywhere near as slow as the first page

c. what browser you're using.
Opera

d. What country you're in and internet provider you're using.
US, Verizon cable internet

I can see all pics/smilies and avatars with no issues.The main issues for me is the loading/freezing.

I think it's loading fine for me. I use mozilla firefox and my ISP is just a local one through the local cable company.

I'm not sure if I like this side bar thing either. I stopped going to certain pet forums because of all the ads. I mean there are some that were added to the top of the page, and now they're are going to be ones that are added to the side...so what's next? I've seen forums where when you click to view a page it takes you to basically a popup ad and you have to click, skip this ad to move on. Is it ever going to go to that?

Also what happened to the idea that it was going to be fixed to go back to the way it originally was where all the user info was on the left hand side and not the top? Also what happened to the little link that takes you to the new posts since your last visit that's under your PMs in that little box at the top right hand part of the screen?

I know change is good but it was said that a lot of things were going to be put back the way they were after the first upgrade. It's kind of unnerving to me.
If it's all because this is a free site then I would probably be more then willing to pay to make all these things to go away...that's how much I like it here.

ETA: I also hate the similar thread thing at the bottom of the posts. A lot of the stuff isn't even relevant and goes by a certain key word.

Ok, so here is mine...


a. If you all feel the page goes slow.

They are not as fast as before all the changes. It is slower now.


b. Is there any improvment after the first page

Yes, it is better than it was a few days ago.


c. what browser you're using.

Internet Explorer

d. What country you're in and internet provider you're using.

US, Time Warner Cable Road Runner High Speed Online.


...and I still see little red X's in white boxes where a smilie should be and also some members still have their avatars missing.
And I still havent gotten an answer as to why my post in classifieds has now got some of the font all smushed together and overlapping since the upgrades. Makes it hard to read.

Everything is working ok for me except that I'm seeing red x's for some people's avatars and smilies. My own avatar is coming up as a red x.

Edited to add that I just went to my control panel to get a different avatar and ALL of them are showing up as red x's there.
