You didn't get the special lifetime membership offer yet ?? Hmmm
Checked the site on my Samsung S4 today and loaded up relatively well. Didn't try typing anything. Loaded a little slow, but better than in the past.
Using Chrome on my IPad tonight and going smoother than I have seen in a long time.
S7 Edge on Android 6.01. Huge improvement the last few days!
Don't know what changed since yesterday morning, but better much much better!
Am i not on mobile with my phone? When I am on data, CF grinds though a gig in about 30 minutes of off and on. Is this normal?
So we've made a ton of changes and on our end, mobile performance is a lot better.
Basically, we have gotten rid of every desktop ad on mobile except one.
You will notice now that there is an anchored ad at the very bottom of the page. Kind of a pain (I don't think it is a huge deal) but that should pay us enough - hopefully - to make up for the rest of the ads being gone. I am just scraping and clawing to break even here. Mobile has killed the digital advertising industry.
Gonna keep tweaking. Glad to hear it's better for many of your phones. We are not done with changes yet. Still experimenting.
IMHO, I rather keep the ads and revenue for you guys if it's going to hurt the bottom line that bad. I haven't noticed any difference in performance, and a marginal increase isn't worth the lost revenue. 99% of users were fine with it before, and the ones that do air grievances are more annoyed, it's not like they would surf any less or leave the site.
Got hit with a spam redirect while reading the OSU game prediction article this morning. Galaxy S6 with the built in browser.
Loading a new page directs me to the very bottom of the page on mobile right now. Never had that issue before.
I'm not sure what this ad is but it's on every page I open now and it's making everything terribly slow and it never actually loads. It's been there the last couple days. I'm having a hell of a time typing this out and I didn't have issues before this point. I'm on iPhone 6 with safari. Speed tested my wifi and I'm running 119mbps down right now through my phone.
I get that too (never saw it before) on iPhone-Safari. It doesn't appear to slow anything down for me, but whatever it is, it never fully loads.
I started getting that ad on my phone today, takes up the whole page basically.
Maybe it's just a coincidence but I chimed in on the other lagging thread saying I had 0 issues but ever since this ad appeared it's been slow a hell.
iPhone 6s with Safari. I started getting that ad yesterday, usually loading, sometimes at least if not always a video (though the sound was turned off; and maybe it was paused). It is at the top in a spot usually occupied by a longer, narrower -- much more benign ad -- like Heartland flags or something.
Today in addition to the big black always loading square at the top I also started getting a more banner type one at the bottom of my screen where I have rarely if ever had one before, immovable and covering part of CF. It is the kind you hesitate to click the x in the corner (the ad doesn't quite go all the way across the screen) to try to get rid of it because you are never quite sure what is going to happen next. I did once though and it then asked if that was the kind of ad/product I wanted to see advertised in that spot.
Also quite a few random reloads today which I believe disrupt what post you are viewing in a thread, like maybe going back to the first unread one rather than the one you were viewing when it reloaded.
Very annoying, all 3 outlined above. That always loading black square at the top particularly doesn't make any sense.
I have only been using adblock for things like that old Walmart ad that would come up, that is, when it was an absolute necessity. The way things are now, I will probably start using my adblock browser for CF a lot more.
I'm getting that on my IPhone, I think it's a huge battery drainer.
Getting redirects like crazy. Not on wifi. iPhone 7
It was absolutely unusable during the second half. You had 7-10 seconds, and then redirect every time. I finally gave up.
Constant redirect just now on phone. 5 times in like 10 minutes.
Same here. CF's new ad server now serving up spam, only faster.
