    Is it just me or does this forum stall out like every 2-3 minutes? I mean it's gotten to the point where you can hardly use this site in any kind of meaningful fashion. Every other forum i look at doesn't act this way it's only uo.stratics.com that i've had any kind of problem with. I mean seriously if your posts aren't being removed or locked the stupid forum itself is just locking up. What is the deal with this garbage? Is the forum buggy or is it just locking up from all this unneeded MOD squad activity? PLEASE DO TELL inquiring minds want to know!

    My experience seems to be that only posts with "Dragon Cave" links in them do it.

    I never have any problems, and I'm on dial-up. Sure you don't need to clean out some adware and spyware?
  6. I turned off all the avatars and siggis... not a problem for me and loads faster, too.

    I'm positive it has absolutely NOTHING to do with adware/spyware. I'm on a T1 here at work and it still will stall out for upwards of a minute sometimes just trying to load up text in a post. I think that Basara is onto something with those stupid little dragon cave things. They are obviously effecting the forum why NOT just ban them all together?

    First off... there is nothing that a mod locking a thread could do to make the forum lag.

    Second off... the original post is in violation of our ROC by questioning MOD actions. You may want to believe that mod actions are not needed, but our younger forum members (at least their parents) believe otherwise. The rules are there for a reason. For this reason, I am locking this thread as I reply.

    Third off... I never experience the problems you are describing and I note several others here doing the same thing. Perhaps you need to update adobe flash since the ads are not from Stratics and could be part of the problem... or just use Mozilla's Firefox and turn off the ads! Based on many others not having a problem, I would hazard a guess that it is something on your end.

    Fourth off... to answer your last question... once you log in to the forum, look towards the upper left and select "User CP". From there, scroll down the left column and select "Edit Options". Now scroll down to "Thread Display Options" and uncheck "Show Signatures" - "Show Avatars" - and "Show Images" as you like.

    I hope that helps... if you still have questions or problems with it, feel free to PM me or one of the other Stratics team members and we will try to help.
