I agree. Matt don't you think having these features at the top of every mountain, route, and photo page might be excessive? Couldn't you meet the desired objective by placing it someplace appropriate on the home page but not everywhere else?

If it must be on the other pages, perhaps it could be moved to the column on the left on the main object pages, down where the ads are.

Log in time has varied for me. Earlier today it took 4-5 minutes to log in. This evening it took less than 5 seconds. It seems pretty random.

That happens all the time for me. Not the having to do it repeatedly immediately, but SP is always 50% logging me off mid-session and I have to log out and log in again.

I log in to stay logged in, and as a browse around at random times I will stop seeing off-route, reply options in forums, and get messages to stop cheating when trying to vote on a page. Logging out and back in corrects it, but only temporarily and it starts all over again.

Others see this? What is the cause Matt? This has been going on for over a couple months now, you may not have noticed if you haven't been online browsing around for more than 15 minutes at a time.

Yesterday I was editing a pic caption. It took so much time that I had to leave it. The server speed is very slow at AM hours in Spain

Diego is right. Little edits (like fixing a typo in picture caption) can be just as slow or slower than uploading a 4MB picture--the kind of slow where you go off, make a cup of coffee, load the dishwasher, come back, and it's still not done. But this is not consistent--sometimes text edits are pretty much instantaneous, the way they used to be. I don't have any theories about the explanation--I'm just reporting it.

The same thing happened to me (mid-morning), but it only took me 5 seconds to log in the second time. Seems to be faster in the evening ..

Yesterday evening, I uploaded three photos in succession. The first two took about five minutes each. The third took less than a minute. I've noticed similar inconsistencies on other days recently. I've also noticed a lot of double images posted lately. Like chugach mtn boy, I have no theories and am just reporting.

As far as site speed with everything else goes, the only issues I've had in recent days have been due to the connection. But when the connection is weak, it seems that SP is slower to load than other sites and more likely to not load at all, for whatever reason.

I have not been able to upload pictures or anything to SP for a while because it takes so long. I just tried uploading a single picture and left it for about 3 hours. It was still loading when I came back so I just gave up on it! It has been this way for a while and has made it so I can't contribute to the site any more. I'd like to be able to upload without it taking most of the day to do. Is this because of the server speed? I don't have problems on other sites.

Although SP is starting to slow down for me, its still going at a alright pace. But the search query for some reason was going incredibly slow. A few minutes earlier it worked quite fast. :?
When working with the search it seems to be trying to load some kind of advertisement (displays the url from ad on bottom). Does this majorly effect the speed?

Whatever you did it sure helped on my end. I am now able to upload photos without getting the generic browser reply about trying to reconnect to your server. Good work man. I didn't mean to be a jerk but for months I was getting failed uploads and page updates at all times of the day and night and I was almost ready to pull the plug on this site and go build my own.


Thanks,

Bob
