It's getting to the point where I almost can't post. Is it me or the Planet because I struggle at the mange also.

Nah - it's the Planet, IMO. It has reached an incredibly frustrating level.

I wish there were something I could do to help.

It bounces up and down like a ping-pong ball... or a flip-flop...

It is so frustrating... I'm trying to avoid real work and the Planet won't cooperate!

It works fine for me, except on gamedays, and the day after gamedays. I believe their is some corellation there.

I turned off viewing for guests moments ago. It seemed to help.

I turned off user reputation and it is FLYING now.

Yeah, I just noticed there is no more rep.

Now I have no reason to post here. Thanks, Phil.

I'd leave you negative rep, but I can't. This is really frustrating.

Turn avatars off and see what happens.

Hell yes it is..........I told you rep was the debil.

Can I cash out my rep chips?(don't worry...they are the good Clay rep)

This is great.

Let's see....rep/sigs or being able to post. I pick the latter :)

My avatars are already turned off. Bad enough when the boss walks by and I'm on an internet forum. Even worse when there are bouncy boobs all over the screen.

I'm thinking that Whitlock logs on and our weight limit gets broken.

I can't imagine that rep would affect the server speed all that much... I could be wrong though.

That one's a head scratcher...

you could have just turned off my rep, since my comments generate the bulk of it here.

I turned off user reputation and it is FLYING now. This is fine with me (and most others I would suspect). The rep feature was just an annoyance. If it makes the Planet work better / faster, I'm all for it. Cool. :thumb:

ROFL This is kind of like Tom telling people that they need professional help if they take stuff that happens on the BB too seriously.

I've removed my avatar to ad even an 'iddy biddy" bit of speed/Room on the server and upload.

One fewer column/join on the DB side.

Better yet, if you see something to which you feel the need to respond; turn off the computer, pull out a pad and paper, write your response, and stick in the mail chute. :p

Yes, thanks Phil. :D

72k posts and 4.9 billion views regarding why everything is so slow probably helps make it faster.

I think we should ban everyone under 10,000 posts from posting. Until you have 10,000 posts, you can't post here. That would help keep the server running smoothly.

Oh the irony...I can't give you rep for that.

I couldn't get in from work (where I only lurk, and don't log in), but it did report that there were 125 users on board at that time, 24 of which were guests. How do guests get on?

If we no longer have rep, how am I supposed to know who's clever?

I have said it before, I would be willing to pay a voluntary subscription to help upgrade the equipment.

Lets inact that policy in about a week.
