Great News For All Site Users!

Hey Everyone

We bring good news for you all!

We have spent the last couple of days working out how to optimize the sites CSS and Javascript to improve page load times and overall site performance. I am happy to report that with the help of a fantastic little piece of software called W3Compiler , we have been successful. We have ran a website optimization report using before and after using the compressed java and css. Here are the results for different connection speeds with the 1st figure before optimization and the 2nd figure after optimization:-

14.4K – 267.81 seconds 179.94 seconds
28.8K – 143.50 seconds 96.67 seconds
33.6K – 125.75 seconds 84.78 seconds
56K – 83.13 seconds 56.23 seconds
ISDN 128K – 38.78 seconds 26.52 seconds
T1 1.44Mbps – 20.90 seconds 14.54 seconds

As you can see , this is a fair performance increase and is quite significant for our users on slower internet connections.

We have given the site a quick look over to make sure none of the css or javascript has broken and all seems OK. However , if you notice any issues on the site which were not happening 5 minutes ago , please PM me (1234s282), TheWiz or a member of the moderation team immediately (although it would be best to PM me as im the one who has made the changes)

Well enjoy the performance increase and reduced page load times 😀

Happy Modding!
