In our continuing efforts to enhance website performance, we'll be using this topic to track optimization tactics and review results. As with any system, maintaining best health is an ongoing struggle between features and performance.
These forums operate on a rather complex database and have grown to include a multitude of options members have requested and come to expect. Some attempts to limit database queries and improve speed may result in removal of certain functionality. At times we may request feedback, otherwise please refrain from posting off-topic replies. (Save it for the Anything Goes forum.)
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

We understand the site is slow. We're working on it! Thank you for your patience.
Avatars temporarily turned off. If you wish to file a complaint, please start a new topic.
All avatars have been temporarily disabled site-wide, so they will not appear in the forums, blog posts, or widgets. A complete theme overhaul is still in the works, but it would help to know if the new Avatars plugin has affecting site performance.
Please feel free to report back here regarding any noticeable improvement in load times after clearing your cache and posting a few forum posts or visiting various blog pages. Thank you.
... report back here regarding any noticeable improvement ...
Any feedback regarding site performance over the past 48 hours is greatly appreciated.
Now is also the time to let us know if you use the New/Recently updated Topics drop down menus at the bottom of all forum pages. This is yet another database call, and is redundant to the List we dispay the top of the main forum page. We received resistance, however, the last time we removed it.
Avatars reactivated site wide, turning them off broke the Blogs directory. Many thanks to Lincoln's mom for pointing that out!
Forum avatars still dsabled while we continue to monitor performance.
Ass groove growing deeper in couch as theme overhaul progresses.
At least you can sit on the couch!

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Keep it coming and stay tuned for big changes that we *hope* will drastically help improve overall performance.
I don't want to report problems if you are working on it. So ignore me if this is a temporary glitch but I left a comment(s) on http://tripawds.....es-fortis/
and my comments didn't show up...not even a "moderation needed". It vanished - POOF!
I now see the "awaiting moderation" on my comments.
