Zach is hopefully going to finish most of the site stuff this weekend, or at least was the plan. So if this happens, he will be able to soon start to focus on the forum.
@Jared : Hm, that loading issue is bizare... even after a refresh?
Big news, found that indexing of content wasn't happening due to a small error at the end of the script. Proceeding with indexing... (that means it will help speed up content)
Geez man it's much faster! Anyone else notice the difference?
Not that fast, but yeah, it's faster for me.
Last I checked it was only at 7% indexed.. lol
Lets give it more time and see what it's like afterwards. :)
forum is about the same, main site feels faster. It looks like the transition from the main site to the forum improved from about 12-15 seconds wait to about 5 seconds.
> Service Unavailable... It could be part of the Anti-Spam SubZero.
I am able to log in & post today, though my POST COUNT is way down according to what is on the screen. It was accurate before, but then I could not seem to post. Odd stuff, this. I hope they get it squared away
OK - since I'm able to post at this stage, here goes. It's all about the layout and what could be fixed / improved from my browsing perspective:
EARLIER LAYOUT ISSUE:
CURRENT LAYOUT ISSUE:
MISC LAYOUT COMMENTS:
SubZero, excellent observations and suggestions. I wish more would get involved here and help us spot all the issues. We see most, but not all. And you folks see the site and forum differently then we do. So keep the comments/suggestions coming. We don't care if you hate something... just let us know. Because if you don't it's won't be addressed.
I will add this to the running todo list we have on our end.
Elmex8, site and forum still slow for you? If so, that's very odd indeed :(
Site is faster! A HUGE difference over last week. Great work guys!
Glad to help. Hope things get worked out. The whole ordeal must be a real pain and the more useful feedback we can provide, perhaps the sooner things get nailed down and working.
Lots of little updates. Including header fixes. Please report any issues.
How about now?
Now it's okay..couple of things that I'm not sure if they are good this way:
The line with links to pages on the bottom of every post with multiple comments, is vague. Also the two radio buttons near the search bar are very close to each other. The search bar is too much to the right. I would make it stand on top of the links.
That's it, everything looks excellent to me.
@Rodney, forum is good regarding speed, but the main site is still average. It's not slow, but I dont see the speed everyone is talking about. Probably because there are lotsof flash ads and my laptop is weak.
Nightmare. Getting that "Service unavailable" result when I post more than a few times in the same location. If I logout, go to a different location (free Wi-Fi cafe for example), then I can login and post. But then if I post a few, I get that error message and have to move to another location.
Is it SPAM settings? Should you temporarily turn all that off to see if the problems go away? No signature spam rules, etc?
I'm running out of Free Wi-Fi coffee house locations guys! Please get this thing fixed.
Plus, my post count, used to be over 3,000 is now like 100+, down from 500+ a while back. That shouldn't be happening, should it?
@SubZero : Yes, I would assume this is due to the Spam catches. I will see what I can tweek for you. I am also working on a qualified spam whitelist for members with posts above a certain count etc.
Also, post counts are on my list. Most of the missing counts are from the, now archived, forum. So I will be doing a match script to update those...maybe this weekend... we'll see how long it takes my kids to find their eggs... lol.
so are we going to have the same post count as we had in the vBullet' forums?
Yuck!.......That is how I feel recently about 3dgm
1. I am unable to post at home+collage. both times=service unavailable.....same problem as subzero..
It takes loggin in through a proxy in virginia to connect....rly do I need to use proxies now to post on a forum...
2. Just like everybody else my post count from the old forum is gone. Yes it is not essential+I would like other things worked out first but still not something to forget.
3. Rodney has been defeated by trollers...rly...ITS YOUTUBE!!!! YES PEOPLE ARE GONNA LEAVE BAD COMMENTS! Doesn't mean you need to disable all comments because some 12 year old in Mississippi decides to rag on youtube... This is a victory FOR THE TROLLS! They don't care about you or your website so meh w.e they move on. Meanwhile people who do want to add constructive content are being banned from doing so-how is this a good thing? Moreover if you allow yourself to be emotionally influenced by a troll you are giving him/her power over you for no good reason. All of this on top of removing new videos from youtube+STILL not having a functional website months after the infamous November DOA just do not sit well with me. I understand it is a work in progress and some good things have been done but the 3dgameman franchise is still wounded in dire need of some healing measures.
We need a hot tub time machine to go back to November.
I haven't had any posting troubles since Rodney changed the site from widescreen to normal display mode. I do not understand why people are so concerned about their post count? The admin has said tons of times that he is working on it plus the join date is also there which also gives some idea of your "seniority" if that is what you are so concerned about.
pgs 10-12 in 3GM kickass pics dont show any posts, all i get is the text editor like its an empty thread
Can anyone tell me what changed today?
