Bug: black market link slow again? (in General)


AdminShade December 12 2010 4:47 PM EST

A long while ago I reported this for the black market page, it was terribly slow.

Then it was fixed, but now the link has moved and it's slow yet again. Something changed?

AdminLamuness December 12 2010 4:49 PM EST

No, I noticed it was slow prior to moving the link. Must be something else.

How is a link slow?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 12 2010 9:25 PM EST

possibly in the sense that it does not get you to your destination as fast as the other links do? ; )

AdminNightStrike December 12 2010 10:42 PM EST

Somehow I seriously doubt this. It's entirely possible that there's data on the page that gets cached, thus creating a speed differential between the first access and subsequent accesses. Other than that, I call placebo.

Have you tried it NS? For me there's a significant difference in the time it takes.

big difference NS

Compared to what?

That's just the sort of pernicious questioning that is holding back our usercentric development.

BM compared to say the Armor store, or the community link... anything.

BM is slower than any other link on CB

Yeah it's pretty slow..

I got a "vote not approved" message with a link to the black market that didn't work. Never had that happen before. When I went back to the black market page to vote again, it had accepted my vote.

compared to any other link in CB, this link definitely is 10+ times as slow.

BluBBen December 13 2010 2:00 AM EST

Yes. It's slow.

Admiralkiller December 13 2010 2:39 AM EST

Slow for me also.
:-) but that's okay I take that time to ponder life.
