Whoa!!

Did the site change today? I got on today and all the problems I was having are gone. Everything that used to be in text is now in an icon. I see the smiley icons instead of the text. The text icons instead of text descibing them. The site loads way faster than it used to. I can't believe I was putting up with it before. The thing is that I didn't do a thing. Didn't change a setting, didn't change the browser I am using. If it goes back to what I was dealing with before I will definitely have to get it fixed pronto. I'm stoked. Much more appealing to visit now.

I wish I could take credit for something (anything) but I honestly didn't change a thing.

generally what you describe is a condition of your connection, your 'throughput' (the overall connection speed and quality of lines and terminals from one site to another) to the site. a very slow, iffy connection will tend to time out on the graphic portions while displaying the text. a good, fast connection will load everything in seconds. so, i'd suggest here that something changed in your internet connection here to the site. it may be that your isp cleaned up its lines, gave you more speed, or that some other line or terminal improved, thus improving your 'throughput' to the site here.

Damnit all! I get back on today and the damn site is back to bogging. People keep telling me it is something on my side or my server or something but all I know is that I don't have this problem with any other forum site I visit. I'm not saying I haven't encountered the problem before but it's usually just a one day thing or I no longer visit that site for certain reasons. I love this forum, I just wish that it would perform for me. Oh, and before this is suggested, I am on broadband.

I've had the problem too, I'm on 1.5Mb (soon to be 10Mb yeeee!!) Hasnt been a problem in a while, its just an occasional problem I get - usually with vBulletin forums. But I get it when my throughput it fine - seems very random.
What browser are you using?

I'm on a current version of firefox. I run on a DSL. Like I said, so far I've only seen this site work one time for me. It's frustrating since I enjoy the site so much. There isn't a nicer site or better forum in this area or any other area of photoshop or graphic design.

In this thread, Robin was having trouble with her internet and Craig suggested using the tracert command.

You could try this. Maybe you'll be able to find out at what point between you and RtP the problem is happening.

They seem fine to me but I don't know what they mean really. The ms times seem consistent at least.

Every graphics-only problem I've ever seen always eventually boiled down to some sort of privacy/security setting on the end-users' side. Check the FAQ for some potential details. I'd temporarily disable each of your security programs (popup blockers, firewalls, antivirus, etc.) one-by-one to see if there's any improvement, then re-enable it and move onto the next one. That might help narrow it down.

Also, I used to have problems only with small graphic like smileys but not with large graphics like images. Not just here, but it did seem to be limited to PHP-driven sites (as this one is). It turned out to be a known bug in Internet Explorer, and upgrading to the latest service pack fixed it (moving to IE7 would also do the trick).
