Very clunky and slow and annoying.
How difficult is it to make your site fast
do you mean bhw forums are slowly for you ? ... most probably it's something wrong with your connection . I`m with virginmedia @ 100mb package and the site it's loading pretty decent for me now . ( Of course sometime getting 503 error and the famous clickbank offer but I suppose it's just a kind of forced advertising from their part ) . Try and clean your cache / reboot your router ...
As difficult as receiving -20 rep.
i rarely had loading problems before their new hosting. but i understand it's not easy to maintain such a big forum.
I am with talk talk UK internet
All other sites load fast for me.
This site sloooow though.
I don't care about rep points.
95% of the people on here don;t know what they are talking about.
Why would anyone help you?
Exactly, with the attitude the OP has got, he wont go far in this game
Agree with the OP, BHW is very slow in some moments.
Hostwinds should be ashamed for putting their banner in the footer, they suck.
Yeah it's embarrassing to have such a slow site when you make so much money with it.
BHW loads slow or doesn't load at least once a day for me. I'll open 3 tabs and they all spin for a few minutes then fail. I'll come back and refresh them and they open right up.
Yeah I feel it!
There has been people Rep snatching lately for no real reason. I get rep taken for telling the truth to noobs. How is that right?
Fuck Rep, what does it do anyway? Let's people know some egotistical dick head didn't like what you said?
That wasn't a good reason to take Rep from you. That's your opinion, is this a communist forum now? Now that I got that off my chest ...You can take some rep
But I don't agree with BHW being slow though!
While OP could have said it a little better, he is right. Several times per day I will visit the site and it will not load or if it loads, clicking on a thread link produces blank pages. Nothing wrong with my connection since all other sites I visit load correctly and quickly.
I know that BHW has been under attack at times and this could be the issue, but it is very annoying to say the least.
From the above comments, I can see that op stated a fact. I for one is experiencing the same slowness but decided to live with it rather than complain.
-1 rep to the op is understandable but -20 from one member is clearly abuse of rep authority.
Hey guys that slowness has not gone unnoticed but everyone who is talking about the forum speeds here has obviously never run a website that gets DDOSed on a daily basis, generates hundreds of thousands of uniques a day, most of those people spending hours on the site. It's not the same as your little VPS or dedicated server. It is a completely different ball game, and with this come new challenges and problems, We work very hard to make BHW as fast and user friendly as possible, without compromising security.
We will be making some major improvements to to the forums this weekend that will solve many of these problems. The forums are also growing more and more popular, with user activity growing every week. We do our best to make this forum awesome for you guys. I do want to point out that before we took over the hosting BHW was on and off every few days due to DDOS attacks, now that we have taken over hosting, the uptime has dramatically increased, along with the forum activity.
I do appreciate you voicing your opinion and letting us know that you are having problems, but there is a big difference from voicing your opinion, and downright bitching and complaining. I appreciate constructive criticism, however your post came off as aggressive, and combative. I do appreciate your concerns and hopefully you will see the improvements we are constantly making to the site, to make it a better place for everyone.
Also just for the record I am not the one who neg repped you
