The latest version of The Hayling Site is pretty different to the last one. What do you like, what don’t you like?

Mats aware of the speed problem, some rogue code problem apparently, he has said a new server is ready to go, hopefully it will speed things up, I managed to do some online shopping while posting this LOL

So so slow!
Whether on PC, Laptop, tablet or phone, you have time to make a cup of coffee and cut the grass while waiting for a page to open.

I really don’t like it.  Touted as a “relaunch” its really nothing at all like it’s predecessor, in that it is lifeless and sluggish.  The “questions” section is difficult to use and the headings bizarre.  “Local questions for local people”?  What does that even mean.  (Did Alan Mak write it?)  As for “Mainland questions”.??

I understand there is a requirement for “no trouble” but the answer could have been better management of “trouble” and perhaps some real time consultation with active forum members.  Instead it seems to have been to squeeze the juice out of the forum and serve up the dry remains.

I remain upset that just before Christmas and without notice, the plug was pulled with no concern for the impact – in my case fairly minor – though I did regret not being able to greet forum friends who I don’t know face to face – and with the promise that it would be back.

The answer seems to be “well we own it we can do what we want with it”, which is true.

Sad though, that we no longer have a community forum.

I’m on a small-ish screen and the logo and banner take up quite a bit of space. My biggest issue is the speed. It is VERY slow to load. Apart from that, I quite like it this far!

I would have preferred a continuation of the ‘old’ forum.

 

Whilst I acknowledge the site owners aren’t under any obligation to continue with it, I can’t help thinking it would have been a good idea to have at least offered to let other people take it over so it could have carried on, rather than close it with no notice. I’ve seen this happen and work out quite well on other internet forums.

I find a bit slow in opening and bringing up pages like ‘Questions’. Only a few seconds mind but noticeable. A spellchecker would be nice too.

I am glad to see that the site now says “Welcome” rather than “Howdy” in the top right corner.

I left America for a reason.

Site seems to be very slow, especially on Questions.
