Yeah! Pictures! Pictures! We want pictures!

In reply to: Pictures. . .

And fonts, and font colors and sizes, and strike, and block quote, and horizontal line, and sub and sup, and background color. (No marquee, please.) Not to dazzle with BS, but just to have a little fun. Remember fun?

But most of all WE WANT PICTURES!

I really really miss the tree view on the main page. And the ability to 'Mark Thread As Read'.

All in all though, I love talking with my bubs and I'm most grateful for what we've got.

You're just trying to grow your rogues' gallery, aren't you? Devil

Personally, if they do allow images like before, I hope they add a "don't show" switch in the member profiles, so we don't have to wait ten millennia for a terrabyte size graphic of granma's outside loo to show up!

I still have speed issues with Cnet, right now I am on a secured hi-speed line @ work, and certain pages are snail pace. Guess what? It's the ADs which cause it, as the same page with a different ad flies into place.

Re: the same page with a different ad flies

In reply to: Re: Pictures. . .

Might the reason the subsequent re-load, of that same page, be taking advantage of your cache already having the large graphic. Thus giving you the false impression that it is the ad, now being different, that was causing the initial slow load?

That is, if the first time you went to a page, took a long time, but now the 2nd (or more) time you go to the same page, with the same large image, just seems to "fly." Since the only thing being changed is the different random (?) advertisement, you might have the false impression that it was the 1st ad causing the slow load. When, in reality, the true culprit simply was already in your cache, which didn't have to take a lengthy time to re-load.

Just asking out loud, and wondering if you had done a clearing of you browser cache between these page views.
