    forum server switch - feedback requested

    The forums are now running on a different server. If everyone could do a quick poll vote so we can see if it made any difference, that would be great.

    And if you experience any new issues as of a few hours ago, please report them here in this thread.

    Thanks

    Haven't noticed any difference at all tbh. I like this layout.

    I think it's loading a little bit faster than before

    When I saw this:

    I thought the forums were getting a graphical overhaul too, but there's no difference... Is that the case?

    Yes, I've noticed a difference. I've had some crappy Internet service this week since Verizon decided to suck as a company, so I've had to deal with slow-loading and sometimes never loading web pages until tomorrow when I switch to Comcast. However, even with my crappy Internet speed today, I noticed that the forums have been loading faster. Faster than any other website I attempt to go on.

    Heh, that's just a generic info graphic that IT puts up whenever they work on the servers and when the forums (or whatever part of the SE network they work on) can't be displayed while the maintenance is happening. So no major overhauls planned, no.

    Though we *are* working on some new skins

    it does load faster actually. at least for me that whole page pops up at once instead of loading when i scroll down.
    or when i post a comment. this always took few secs to load up.

    I wasn't sure at first as firefox was being crap, but now it seems the pages are loading slightly faster.
