These are the first landing pages one tends to get to when looking for a particular photographer. They take up to 10-15 seconds to load! By the 3rd second, most people have quit the page if they are just browsing the web to find images (creatives, ad agencies, etc). This has lasted for the past few months, so it is not overloading resulting from this Christmas time when people would upload family pictures. There really should be some testing made from important sites around the world to monitor differential loading times. Perhaps in England these problems are not seen to the same extent. I am on both Cable and T1 networks, so speed on my side is not an issue.


Don't think so mate, must be your servers. Ran a speed test = 18.4MBps (cable broadband) Picked a random gallery: http://www.pbase.com/slbravo/d700__noise, took 1-2 secs to load a pic. We have backbone connection (100Mbps) at work and it's just as fast, with 1000 users plus other traffic. Having tried some others smugmug/photobucket/flickr, can't say they didn't seem any faster.
It must also depend on image size.

Faster now....I DONT THINK SO !
So many of my favs have already left. It wouldnt surprise me if PBASE were looking for a buyer or sponser. They clearly can not support their own product.

Now that Pbase is faster maybe some of the other items could be worked on like the ability for viewers to purchase images through pbase or maybe a search feature that always works .....ETC.

Same terrible extremely slow loading Profile issue that's been going on for a while.

Can we ever expect this to be resolved?

I concur. The profile page is consistently and atrociously slow, even on a T1 network. Please let us know if this is being worked on.

I agree, it is extremely slow....some status is needed for sure...

even on google chrome (which is the fastest browser) it is still very slow...

Speed and other problems.
I had observed following problem - is it only me or are other having the same experience:
Popular Photo Gallery
choosing popular photos Galleries all days
You pres: Show next 8
You can do that 4 times where after you get a blank page.
With other words I can not go further than to number 38.

Other popular gallery seems to work.

This forum is called NEWS. Quite funny because there is now news. Nearly no development, and no maintains at pbase.

Pbase AGONIZINGLY SLOW the PaST fEW mONTHS

Post Mon Mar 02, 2009 3:29 pm


Folks....

I had personally noted that acess to my pbase pages were agonizingly slow over the past month...and even far worse if I were attempting to access my profile page. It made no difference wether I was attempting this from home my laptop on the road of my office.

Last Thursday, I had a photo editor advise that they will no longer consider my work until I move to a hosting site or my own site where they would actually be able to open the pages and view my images.

What the heck is going on here?

Slow is putting it politely. I'm on upgraded Comcast, which should be one of the fastest servers out there, and pbase is HOPELESSLY SLOW. WTF? Idon't recommend pbase to anyone and when Flickr manages to copy my pbase folders over automatically I'll be out of here.

I'm disappointed about the speed of PBASE! It's sooooooo slow, that I'll definitely stop using PBASE, if there isn't any improvement shortly.

It's really a pity, that there happened no improvement since month!

I agree, it is extremely slow.

We all agree pBase is agonizingly slow and there is no apparent attempt since this was originally posted a year or so ago.Unfortunately it seems the only people reading this thread are those of us that want this resolved.
As a footnote,to add insult to injury....I got an oops message saying I was automatically logged out and to resubmit this....
THIS IS TURNING INTO A JOKE!

No, we don't all agree on that at all. I think we can all agree that there are SOME people who have a problem with speed. There are others (myself included) who have hardly ever found PBase to be even slightly tardy.

It would probably be more accurate to say "are those of us who do have a problem with speed, plus Forum regulars who may or may not have such a problem". Given the number of users that PBase has, the number of people who are complaining about speed issues would not even come close to being a majority. (I say this without denying for a minute that for people who HAVE the problem, it's real.)

That's explained in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=38409&p=250606

In short, it has to do with the fact that there are two related logins that this Forum has to watch. I'd concur that it's an annoyance, but a pretty trivial one in the overall scheme of things.
