Board Issues 4

I've always used Chrome, and don't see an issue. Do you folks have any extensions in common? If you use SHIFT+ESCAPE to show the Chrome task manager, how much memory is being used by a tab set to the forum? How about multiple tabs? 

By way of comparison, this tab where I'm typing right now is at 94MB, and slowly ticking a bit upward because Ajax calls are taking place to keep abreast of my typing and so on. This is pretty normal for a tab. But maybe something is causing you guys to get some kind of runaway memory issue, either an extension or something in the code that isn't affecting me but is affecting others.

 

If you could message me with a screencap of a fresh Chrome task manager with one or several tabs open -- it will reveal some information regarding your extensions, so bear that in mind -- it would be useful.


ETA: I should add that we haven't made any changes at all in the last few months to the system. Maybe time to do the long-overdue software upgrade, see if that helps...

To me when using chrome, board seems to lag like a video game when ping is high. It takes a moment, maybe half a second, for a page to react to scrolling, clicking etc.

Interesting. There's no apparent CPU usage going on in that image, and the memory is not particularly high.

Could I ask you to consider clearing your browser cache -- specifically, clear images and files, cookies probably don't need to go -- then restart the browser and try the board for a bit and see if that improves anything?

I just did it and it's all the same. But it's still possible that the issue is on my side, specifically chrome since there are no issues with firefox.

What version of Chrome are you on? You've probably upgraded to the latest, but if you haven't, try that.

However I just found out that if I zoom in enough so the side ads disappear it becames smooth and usable again. Holy shit...

I haven't seen any real changes in the kind of ads we're getting. Are the ads you get when this happens videos or something?

Yeah, same here. It’s not every thread for me, just the odd few where I get a constant reload/a problem has repeatedly occurred, but certainly seems to be an iOS issue

This is the error page I get when it happens

Do let me know if it happens there again for you, and I'll try on my device.

Have either of you tried Chrome on iOS? Does it get the same result?

Having this issue again after things seemed to be fixed for a lomg while. It has been specifically on the Mental Health Wellbeing thread so far

Same here. After a long while where it was normal, it started again but only noticed on one thread in General asoiaf (can’t remember which one now).

On the cell phone it says it's downtime while upgrading the forum software, while on PC works good. Now I don't know if that's what it is or there is some problem only happening to my phone? Not an expert for these things.

I was like 15 days oblivious that the forum works until I tried through my computer.  

That has to be some kind of cache issue with your mobile phone browser. Try and clear it, or alternatively manually type in asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php and see if that fixes it.

@Ran, FYI, same weird thing started again for me yesterday. On Safari and Chrome, and only on the “green vs. black” thread (General ASoIaF).

This has probably been asked before, but how come there is no search function on this site? (If there is, it's incredibly well disguised.)

 

It's really, really frustrating.

There is one. See here for an example:_ https://imgur.com/a/TTWEsjL

On mobile, you may have to swipe left as sometimes the layout comes out wrong and it pushes it off screen, but it's in a similar position there.

Is the 'new' version of the forum incompatible with Brave and Fire Fox? Using either I can't break up quotes when I post. I can't send messages either. I don't like this design. I want a preview button and while I'm at it, for what reason is there no option for me to deactivate or delete my account if I want to?
