If any non-admins could post here and let me know if you're having slow loads on either the activity page or anyone's user profile, let me know.  I'm trying to narrow down who is experiencing this issue, but so far, only forum admins have mentioned experiencing it.

The first time I looked upon a user's profile, it took some time but not a slow load. When I looked into Sonic's and others' profile(s), no slow loads for me.

When I'm signed out they respond much faster. Signing back in was also slow. 

The solution will be there. It will some obscure forum setting or server setting.

Hm, strange, now I'm experiencing this as well. Not sure if it happened before. Just tried opening your profile, it needed about 15-20 seconds to do so!

Late but - user profiles for me. Activity page is fine - I loaded it after loading some profiles.

Well guys, I hate to say it, but I still have no updates for the slow loading issue.  IPS support hasn't been particularly helpful in this instance, for some reason they are unable to observe the issue, and search efforts haven't gone very well.

Otherwise, everything else is taken care of for the time being.  Domain transfer was successful, everything is set up properly on the new server, at this point, I'll continue to take bug reports, but don't bother letting me know about the slow loads for activity/user pages, I'm well aware of it and am still trying to get on top of it.

I've upgraded the MySQL databases to a VPS server (basically tried to free up memory for the library loading), so far, this seems to be unsuccessful.

 

According to Dreamhost, the databases should be fully merged at Midnight (GMT -8), at which point the website will be temporarily inaccessible.  We'll check back in then.

The problem *may* be fixed now, as a result of the above changes.  If you guys could let me know if you're still having problems visiting profiles, viewing the activity page, or otherwise, that would be great.

Yeah seems quicker. Activity page pops up much faster.

Okay, so here's what we're looking at:

 

The activity page and user profiles actually load in a timely manner when I put the server databases on a VPS.  This is a service that costs $15 per month, which is more than the cost of the hosting itself.

I'm going to see about looking into alternate solutions, because this is not a sustainable expense long term.

Say, Zee. Have you found a way to fix posts involving ;amp; (which is the symbol of &). Every time I edit a post with C&C in it, the "&" symbol was changed to ;amp;. Any unedited changes to a post adds another ;amp; to the "&" symbol.

Updated the forum software, looks like it broke a few things (cause y'know, why wouldn't it?).

 

I'll see what I can do to bring everything back up to par.

Looks like major template errors. What's with the strange random Asian characters in the menu?

It's a strange bullshit update, that's what.

This goes beyond the template issues.  The ability to add reputation to posts has been inexplicably removed, the layout of the template has changed, images are suddenly missing, etc.  It's going to take some time to work the problem.
