We are on a never-ending quest to improve our delivery network and are happy to announce another 6-12% performance speed-up for both the desktop and mobile site.

This speed-up will be most noticeable for those on mobile devices on cellular networks (Edge/3G/4G) and our friends accessing from overseas such as Asia, Australia, Europe, and South America.

7/23 Performance


  1. During our recent bug hunting  process we were able to find and resolve a performance bottleneck which has improved page processing speed by 10% on average. The increased speed will be most noticeable in the forums, the login area, and the mobile site.


  1. Safari and iOS users having issues posting to forums after our last update.
  2. A short window yesterday where the captcha system would not validate correct inputs.

There might still besome selective users having connection issues or timeouts and if you are one those few, please post a comment and let us know what browser you are using and any antivirus program you are using. Many antivirus programs today are filtering all web browser content and are notorious for being buggy in this feature. Make sure to test our site with your antivirus program’s “link scanner” or “web protection/filter” disabled.
