Extreme lag when editing?

Postby AlexTaylor » Thu Apr 07, 2016 8:29 pm

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

I noticed that whenever I want to edit one of my threads, there is extreme lag.
I assume this has something to do with the huge amount of stuff that is in the post/thread (look at my RoF discog thread for example), because it only lags in the post box thing when typing, deleting, etc., and the rest of the screen is fine.

I can click "Preview" with no lag, and do just about anything else on the site, like checking messages, making a new post, etc., no lag at all.
As I said, it only lags when editing one of my threads, and it's only when I type/delete/edit anything in any way.

It's not my PC, it can run new games at max setting with max performance, and it's not my internet, because I can watch 1080p 60fps youtube videos with no issues.

It's not a big deal, it's just annoying and slow, and I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this, specifically anyone with a lot of stuff in their thread(s) like me.
And is this something that is known/being looked into?

As odd as it may sound, try updating your thread with a different browser. It's next to impossible to update my thread while using google chrome, but it isn't with IE.

Unfortunately, that didn't work. I tried both Firefox and IE and they have the same problem. :(

I think it indeed has to do with the sheer size of things, but I think large amounts of spoilers and video's don't help either... I have this problem with my main thread as well. But I think it is just a limit of the browsers themselves...
YeaaOhhh!!

I have the same problem too. I just copy the entire thread into a Notepad file and edit it there, and once it's done I paste it all back into the text box.
