ANNOUNCEMENT - Site running slow? Clear your brower's cache!
I'll keep this short and simple: we made some changes to the site this past week to help optimize load times for logged in users (logged out the site loads flawlessly). So far they've worked great with really solid load times. With that said, if you're not noticing an improvement in speed you can simple clear your browser's cache. Once that's done you should see a remarkable increase in page load times. Please spread the word about this to other g1s (and non-g1s) who may be seeing a slow site.
How to clear your cache for...
Chrome (PC and Mac)
Other Browsers, simply google "How do I clear *insert browser name* cache"
Thanks guys! Hope everyone sees great results!
ScrewAttack: A place to learn how to Google. But seriously, keep up the great work guys!
I still can't load video's for crap. It will only buffer about 30-45 seconds worth of video and stop. Then when I try to watch it doesn't even play that much before that damn buffering circle comes up. Before this new update my videos were loading just fine.... now it sucks... just like a few months ago. I'm sad
I cleared it and the videos still load slowly :/
the amount of not getting my joke is too damn high
Didn't notice the text because I was too busy focusing on Bowser.
I keep my cache cleared often. Anyway, I'd like to point out that there's a spelling error in the title. It should be "browser's", not "brower's". Maybe you were trying to make a pun with "Bowser", Craig, but..... it failed.
Also, for Safari, you can just go Edit>Empty Cache (unless you have the Developer tab enabled, in which case, you need to go to Develop>Empty Cache).
Internet Explorer..... Well, you shouldn't be using it.
Honestly though, I haven't had any problems with the site, apart from my whole internet connection being bogged down for the past week or so for no particular reason. It's bad enough that our internet is already slow as hell over here. Now it's slower.
HE IS WEARING THE CONE OF SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Only ones I know of are IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Opera.
Already did. Now to see if things improve. Oh and, dawwwwwwwwwww who's a Bowser? [=)]
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind!
It seems a bit risky...
You guys need to do more stuff with the dog
I am using Opera too (newest version 12) and the scrolling on the site is very choppy up to it locks up for more that 10 seconds.
I swear I thought it said bowser
Video loading/lag is still sort of noticeable for me, but youre right Craig, at least the pages load a million times faster. Thanks! :D
So remember to clear your Bowser's cache, then the site won't be slow on whatever Bowser you are using. Now I can Bowse the site without issue!
Ok that's one person now.
I use Opera.
