I too am on a Mac. A PowerBook 1.67GB 17" and I find all the forums much slower on this new system.

Part of the problem is merging the two server systems together The Old Macromedia users and the old adobe Groups together. Therefore the are serving twice as many people or more on the same amount of Server  equipment. Until they beef up the speed, and size of the servers and have sattelite equipment to lighten the load the system will always be slower than before.

The system should be on the highest speed sytem they can get . T5, FOIS, whatever.  And it should have the bigest hard drives and fastest processor availble. If the want to be serious.

Was the specific reason for combining the Forums so that they didn't have to run two different systems.

That wasn't my question.

I mean, how do you know that they are serving twice as many people or more on the same amount of Server  equipment? How do you know that they aren't using more server equipment?

You work for them now?

To the best of my knowledge (which may well be wrong with respect to the Jive forums): the WebX forums were hosted by WebX and the Jive forums are being hosted by Jive. I have no clue to the number of servers being used. The number of servers being used is irrelevant since the software is so completely different. WebX tried to keep track of every thread any user ever read that was still available. That must have been a tremendous load on the system.

These new forums are being fine tuned and tweaked as needed. As users we need to report the issues we see that are important to us. Hopefully, performance and capabilities can be adjusted to meet our needs. The emphasis is on the word hopefully.

Seems logical. If you have two disparte systems one runing WebX for Adobe Forums.

Then the Cold Fusion system used for the Macromedia Forums.That equipment was taken in with the takeover of MacroMedia.

Odds are that the equipment for the coldfusion system needed updating.

So you had two different server systems .

Now with this new system gives Adobe an excuse to cut some over head So they either moved everything to the The servers used for WebX or for ColdFusion but not likely both.

I try to stay out of these things, but where does this come from???

Web Crossing ran at Web Crossing on their servers.

FuseTalk ran at Adobe on our servers

Jive runs at Jive on brand new equipment, purchased within the last month or so.

There is no relationship between the three systems other than that data was exported from the old systems and imported into the new.

Okay so I got the name of the sytem and servers wrong. But they fact is still shown by your post. That two different systems of Forums were combined on one systems Server Therefore the trafic will be larger on this one system. Than on the two separate sytems.

So my comment is still valid, though the names of the servers and systems are different.

Graf, better spend that time in loading your photo in your profile. The one in your avatar looks ways too small on my screen to get any idea of the face behind the dark glasses.

I just haven't gotten that far yet. I figured I'd pop a little avatar on there for now.

Besides, no one wants to see my photo any bigger than that.

The dupplicate smiley in my previous message is a result of the lightning speed of the new forums. I chose it for a second time when nothing appeared on my screen several seconds after choosing the first. And I finally posted my message convinced that I couldn't attach a smiley to it due to another temporary glitch...

Thanks for the tip, Mark; I didn't know this one. It will save me the uncertainty of knowing if I have inserted an emoticon or not. I have just tried inserting one, and waited for 20 seconds without anything happening on my screen, so I erased the complete phrase and I am repeating my test now here: 30 seconds and nothing. Now with another one, just in case: again 30 seconds and nothing.

Your way after this phrase, and I hope I will remember it 😛

And still nothing on my screen where I tried to insert the smilies...

Addition: as can be seen, the emoticons appeared when I posted my message; and 😛 didn't work. Anyone else experiencing this?

Second addition: afyter posting, I'm taken back to the first message in the thread, and not to my just posted message. A very unpleasant step backwards.

Message was edited by: Claudio González. Reason: two after post additions.

I just realized I have hardly any photos of myself not wearing sunglasses. I guess that's a good sign?

Alright it's there and I look nothing like Jack Nicholson. Not that there's anyhting wrong with that.
