Servers = SLOW

jsuh says:

I don't know if it's just me but as the months go by, custo has been getting slower and slower and slower and slower. The new upgrade, as "nice" as it is, is slower than the old version of custo.

The Old version of custo?
That was a fair few months ago... At least a year ago, wasn't it?

Almost about a year. I registered a couple weeks after the switch to evo, so it was around mid-March.

I've been a custo member for almost 7 years, and truth of the matter is, I don't think it has ever been this bad.

I haven't been here as long as you jsuh but I too have noticed how painfully slow custo seems to be during the middle of the day

Even I remember the ambulance. And for the record these slow servers aren't nearly as bad as that, in my opinion.

I've been using Custo for a long time and I do have to agree, the site is so slow I don't really use it anymore. I'd love to see this change.

able2create says:

I have to agree. This is the slowest Site on the net. Really not kidding!!!! I have a 16Mbit Cable and I´m not on this Site anymore that often, because it is too SLOW!!!!!! A lot of People dont come back here either because of the speed - they told me. If I want to show them my new Wallpaper they get off the Site after a time because they dont want to wait that long and ask me if I can send the wallp. via email. DeviantArt was slow too for a while but they fixed it after a time. In this case (Customize) its getting worse and worse (speed not content which is still great!!!!).

I hope you are doing something about it...

davidcie says:

You know guys, I've been with customize for a good several years, and used to come here literally every day to check out new walls. But since the change and the ensuing problems with speed it's not joy anymore. Waiting a 30s to a minute for a browse page to open is not cool.

Most frustrating is that I cannot see much being done to alleviate the problem. I open this page every few months to check out if there's been any improvement, only to find that... it's all the same.

Funnily, I found that I've been looking at deviant much more nowadays, something I never used to do with the old custo.

Moral of the story: we do care, dear admins, so please do something or let us know if you need help!

soundwarrior says:

It was slow before, some months ago. I think it's quite better now. The thing is, when EVO was launched and for at least 3 months after, the speed was very good. At least, to me it was. But guys, you cannot expect that this page so full of neatness and detail loads up as fast as the old php style. It's like, you have to pay the price... =)

Yes it is very very slow. Personally I wouldn't mind a couple of more ads if they help to solve this problem.

Gotta agree with ultradax, wouldn't mind more ads if that would help. Custo is even one of very few sites (if not the only one) I would consider donating money for!

this is getting ridiculous. I wanted to finally upload a suite I have been working on and I couldn't because it would just hang. I guess it worked out because I ended up changing some things but it is frustrating how slow the servers are, I've pretty much given up on submitting here and even browsing. Such a shame

It's almost like the admins left us and they ain't coming back. I haven't seen any improvements to the site in a while. All these things were said to be "working on" but nothing is happening unless they are secretly working on it.

I use IE7 and Firefox, sometimes Opera.
My computer is one of the fastest available on the market.
The result is the same. If it gets any slower it'll be going backwards.
