    Hey! It finally happened!!! :eek: ("...it finally happened, oh yeah... It finally happened: I'm slightly mad...", for whoever gets the reference :p).

    Today, I opened my page on BigSoccer to be welcomed by shiny green new tags reading "NEW" on each of the forums (and subforums!) who had new posts in them!
    So, now I don't have anymore to explore every single forum/subforum to see if it has new messages (or ruin my eyesight and my memory to watch at the date of the last post).

    It took some time, but I guess with this upgrade we got very close to having most of the old functionality of the website completely restored. Or, at least, this was the main issue for me, and now I can live quite peacefully with all the rest of the upgrade.

    For whoever made this possible, thanks for listening. :thumbsup:

    That's very good to hear! Not that I care at all about the shiny green "NEW" tags. ;)

    Maybe the admins are working in stealth on some other issues...

    I notice that the green arrows behavior has changed. They used to disappear after 2 seconds or so. Now they don't disappear at all??? That will surely piss off some folks, so why not try to make them stay for 5 seconds as a happy compromise?

    Yep, that's about halfway or more to what we asked for but very enjoyable progress.
    Well, that could not be too much more annoying could it ..... If they're going to stay on constantly and we get a toggle to turn them all the way off, that's cool, otherwise they just block the BigSoccer copyright and quick navigation button (or the lower-right part of the post you're reading).

    Always on goes with transparent so they don't block anything - seems easier to use no?

    I'm good with the new green arrows. And I was one of the people who talked the most about their value. ;)

    I think I can live with them the way they are now... staying visible permanently and now being transparent. I do think it's visually a bit more elegant to have the pop-up for 5 seconds after you hover lower-right, but if that wasn't easy to do, then this solution seems a good 2nd choice.

    Thanks to anyone who put in time on this. Onward.

    Ever since the revamp BS has been loading much slower for me, even freezing. No other tabs or sites I have open experience this, it's only BS.

    Anyone else having similar issues?

    Yes, same here. Very frustrating. I don't have this problem with other sites I visit.

    I just logged on and noticed the same. I'm using Chrome (if that info helps).

    I'm also having this issue, it's only on BS. I'm using a Mac with Safari.

    I think part of it might be some really shitty ads that are doing a lot to even get around blockers. I've seen this on a few computers in different browsers. I don't mind ads and supporting websites that I regularly use, but there have been some bad ones that make the page loads slow, are obtrusive and remove functionality.

    It's getting worse. USNT PBP thread would barely refresh yesterday. Site is freezing while typing out posts. I constantly have to close the BS tab and open a new one. No problems on any other sites I visit.

    I think it's getting worse, or at least it is for me, pages keep reloading because of errors, even while I'm typing replies.

    I had this happen with an ad with a loading wheel image cranking the whole time.

    Keyboard response lag was bad - but once I submitted it went away.

    Not sure, so far this morning not having the same issue. Now I'm just getting a bit of lag.

    I get this, too. In (EDIT: FIREFOX) I occasionally get ads talking to me and preventing me from typing or even moving down the page. In Explorer, I get "long running scrip" notices. And in Chrome, it freezes this page and the page that I'm listening to.

    Doesn't happen very often on my iPad (Safari), but when it does, it's page crash after page crash.

    As was said above, I don't mind the ads, but if it makes it impossible for me to use the site, then it seems counter-productive.

    I've generally not been having the website problems as recently reported, but today I do notice that things are very sluggish on BigSoccer.com.

    I wonder when the last time the server was rebooted?

    Today was the worst since I started experiencing the issue.

    Has staff commented anywhere? Been a month.
