Over Loading On Woody Boater?

Are you experiencing slow loading on the site? The issue may be a new feature we have added and are testing.. Reader Rated Links. This has never been tried before with links. there are stories and web sites that rate things, But on links? So we had to customize it. We are trying to bring something new to the hobby, a way for people to see what others think of these stores and sites. We dont have much control over it, only that we can delete the feature if it gets out of hand. Or just is off. Try it out and see if its a good thing and worth a slower loading time. Or kill it.. We are going to be trying several new ideas over the next month. Your feedback is critical, please chime.. chine in. Matt

    Matt, I am on a macbook pro with 24mbps up and 5mbps down internet speed. When I click on WB it comes up instantly, however, when I click on this story it takes 14 seconds to load. Long time!

    Initial site loads fine but when you click on a story, slow. I would kill everything but a link for the Donzi girl as I’m not allowed her as a screen saver. Actually give everyone a couple of days, if we liked change would we still own boats with this kind of upkeep?

    I keep trying to improve things and it always seems to break the flow.. Ugh.. Live and learn.. Does anyone like the feature if I could correct the loading time?

    Taking way to long to load. Good idea I would think it would be better if the loading time was back to the normal speed.

    Not to be a downer, but the increased load time is not worth the rating things on the side here – which I can see easily offending a business or group listed. ie – why do I only have two flags whereas someone else has four and a half??? Mere clicking on a flag to ‘vote’ says really nothing of the services the shop offers or of their reputation. Good try, but I would kill it.

    I’m not sure I understand. Where are the votes coming from?

    I must have missed the original idea.

    Can you give a brief wrap up of what you are trying to do?

    YOU VOTE.. Reader rated.. Just scroll over the flags. one flag is bad. 5 good.. These votes are from readers since yesturday.. hurry, it’s gonna die

    Simple solution: less links and way more donzi girl!
    I’m perfectly happy to wait all day for the story to load as long as I can chat with the donzi girl….

    Could Alex’s whining be dragging down download speeds? Just as its dragging down the Christmas spirit in his house, town and state?

    Thoroughbreds are fast and resilient!

    Merry Christmas everyone, sans Alex!
