How can things go faster?

edited February 2019 in Feature Requests

I appreciate new features and such, but I would rather be able to use the ones already available. The speed of the site while editing or even navigating sometimes, is unbelievably slow. It can take a few to 15-20 seconds to save an edit. This makes using the site incredibly frustrating. After just recently upgrading to Ascendant, I am starting to regret the investment and am eyeing other alternatives. 

I notice that a big hangout seems to be "sending request to" and then "waiting on obsidian portal". Why is anything getting sent to Facebook, and what exactly is getting sent? 

I love how this system works, but I cannot tolerate how slow things are. Is there some hope that things will improve... soon?

    This delay isn't normal, actually. I know they're working to fix some related problems behind the scenes, so this new symptom is very likely tied to that process.

    There is indeed work being done behind the scenes. It'll be in my weekly update post a bit later tonight, but in a nutshell, there's an overhaul of the site's underlying infrastructure underway, so stay tuned for more details on that.

    All the best,
