2 weeks in a row of bogging when posting, time for rebuild?

There's only so many advertisements you can embed into the threads.

Vital needs a new top end, reeds, and maybe a lectron carb

Get rid of the f****** ads in the middle of the threads.

Vital has always been really slow but it has definitely gotten worse recently

Heavy traffic causes it. I have a few e-commerce sites that get hammered with traffic at different times...super stressful. But also not feasible to increase resources 100% if the time to cover the misc 1% if time that it’s not sufficient. I’m assuming the site is hosted with amazon web service so it may automatically allocate more resources.

Either way, gives me ptsd thinking about having a site throw 503 errors. All-in-all Vital does great considering the amount of traffic and the fact that they can’t really leverage browser cache the same way a typical site can since it has constantly updating posts. I’m impressed with it.

It was driving my crazy trying to post in the Bench Racing thread last night, seriously took 3-4 minutes for a reply and half the time it would give you a "post not created on the forum" error. Frustrating.

Agreed.
Took 33 seconds to open to the home page yesterday I timed it.

I sure hope that everyone who is bitching about advertisements is ready to "speak with their wallets" to pay for a subscription to access this site..

Haven't noticed any slowness on mine, and I'm on satellite. Maybe 4 seconds max to load any pages, but usually quicker than that.

Yeah I'm not sure what's going on. It seemed ok at the first couple round's ( little laggy but not to bad ). But these past two weekends have been terrible. During the race , I'll type something up , go to post it and it just hangs threw for about 1 min. Thread pops up and what I typed never got added to the conversation. Or I get the 500 error. Like Ted mentioned above , I think it's the ad's in the middle of the page that are bogging it down?

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Some posts are not even getting in.. Def too much adds running and lower part of page is too full.

My point was that is people don't want to see advertisements then they should be willing to pay for an ad-free site. If they aren't willing to pay for an ad-free site, then they should STFU and enjoy the FREE FREE FREE community

No one said ad free... when the ads appeared in the middle of the threads the site bogged down.

You're probably right. I quit Mototalk cause they charged me money to get shredded on every post. But, this place has to make money somehow. I noticed the new ad placement and slowdown but trust that Gibby and the boys will find a balance/fix somewhere. Go look for a better place for moto stuff....you won't find it.

Not denying the content Vital puts outs, actually I am not even really complaining about the ads. Small price to pay for so much content. I am just stating that charging for a forum is usually the beginning of the end. The Vital staff are not stupid, they will make the appropriate changes to appease the masses....There is a reason why the site is so popular.

It's slow and sometimes posts never show up after hitting Submit and waiting 2 minutes.

funny thing is I have been reading threads and getting to the adds and clicking out to something else. Not realizing the adds are in the middle of a thread! huh

|

45 seconds for post to go thru a few moments ago and it's mid day on a Sunday. I can understand the need for ads but they've gotten out of hand...crammed into every nook and cranny on a vital page.

2/17/2019 10:37 AM

Mine slowed down too. And that really sucks because it's affecting my ability to read about people bitching about everything. laughing laughing

I wish the big black and yellow header wouldn’t stick to the top of the page as I am trying to browse nerdy MX threads at work without being detected! That header is NSFW!
