Curtalk Boring? Dull? Slow?

We upgraded some software on the server, and I pruned a bunch of posts (shutting the whole site down in the process ); lemme know if the speed issues improve.

The board has been dull lately. Threads that were created last week are still on the same page. That never used to happen and if it did that thread was probaby a 10 pager. It used to be that if you posted a thread in the am, by noon it would be on page three.

I'm betting its the slow response time, and the new format is just hard to read so I'm pretty selective of what I read now.

My problem seems to still be with the time it takes to post a reply, it is still lagging considerably.

Glad to hear things are better for you, WCW!

I have no idea what she'll do, but I will either logic the thread to everyone's annoyance, or quote Monty Python randomly, or post...

I quit coming here on a regular basis when NC decided to go the route of Showcase of Design School Flunkies. The flashy ads, the garish colors, the miniature columns...it's all too much for me. Especially when I browse at work, I like to at least pretend I'm looking at reputable websites. Nowadays I'm only around if I have a specific question, and I only post if something interests me while I wait for responses to my own posts. But yeah, kitty litter shopping sounds good. All of the old-timers who made things fun are gone and most of the threads get the "meh, title not intriguing enough for me to spend 5 minutes waiting for it to open" response.

The board is still pretty slow for me. I noticed a slight improvment in speed, but not much at all. (I'm on DSL)

It is pretty discouraging to try and post when it takes 2-3 minutes to for the reply to post and the page to load up again.

It's all the obnoxious, flashy ads, I tell ya. I don't recall the old board having so many problems. I know when I'm on my work computer, which does not have Flash, pages take forever and are always impeded by the pop-up asking me if I want to download Flash. No, I don't. Go away. On my home computer, everything is slow just to be slow, I suppose.

slow?
slow is sitting 45 mins. in bumper to bumper traffic just to get out of your job parking lot. if you count to 10 and the page loads this board isn't slow, you are probably impatient. i don't seem to have the problems you all are complaining about, perhaps it's your computer. i use at least 4 different computers a day at work and i have one at home t,his site comes up as slow as any other message board i visit.

boring?
heck yeah, you know why? all of the whiners made it that way. you all had the controversial members along with the intelligent debaters banned. people complained when topics about religion, race, affirmative action or sex was discussed. isn't there a member no longer on this board because of the user name they chose?
the final nail in the coffin for me were the angry remarks made in the "pubic hair" thread on the hair board. an adult topic where nc hair board exclusives went totally outerlimits because so many from the non-hair discussion board posted. the tone of that thread let me know that many curly members want a kinder gentler message board. so you've got it. a bored that no longer wants to talk about politics (how is that possible?) but prefers questions about make-up, celeberities and boyfriends. mind you, that's cool, but what is this? seventeen magazine? if this board wants the fire again, the moderation has to pull back. the only way moderators will stop censoring is when nc members stop complaining.

too many ads?
heck no. those ads pay for this site. i don't see gretchen or michelle begging you all to for donations nor do i see any members offering them.

eta:
oh my goodness, i had so many grammar errors. i suck at writing, sorry.
