Hey Cradz,

While playing at the Graphics Game Night, I found my response from the server pretty slow. I could consistently count four seconds of "waiting for www.the-pork.com" between hitting the speak/update button and the update. Might not seem like a long wait, but when trying to play a game, it matters ~laughs~

Thanks,

grace

Next time you get that try using the old site at http://classic.the-pork.com and let me know if it's the same there.

I haven't noticed any problems with the server or my connection to the server this evening though.

Try running a speed test at http://www.speedtest.net

See if your current internet speed is slower than what you pay for.

I did go in the room and it is a little slow but probably due to all the new size icons although that shouldn't be an issue after first loading as those are cached in your browser.

You can try adjusting the max messages you see under room settings. Change it from 100 to 30 or so and see if you see a difference.

You can also try using the streaming version which only loads new messages as they are posted which uses a lot less bandwidth after first loading the room.

Discussing with Trinna I think this issue was actually due to the speed of the servers hosting the images some of you were linking to using the IMG tag.

We'll see if we can come up with a better way for these game events. Perhaps have a separate window that opens where you post and show your image so it doesn't slow down the main room.
