The blog thread http://boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/9073?commentid=2849230#com... is pretty long to load, to the point where I am avoiding the "Next Subscription" button.

I'm not sure why, but the performance is bad enough that I'd consider it a "bug".

There could be an issue with loading blog posts with a lot of comments. This won't be an issue after the redesign.

I waited until I had 50 unread comments in the thread, then hit them all at once. Not an ideal solution, but it is a solution.

I unsubscribed now, partly because I no longer care but also due to that same issue. laugh

Maybe it's broken. The forum, not the game.

Blogs need paging added to them, just like normal forum threads have paging. Lack of paging is what's slowing down the page load.

While they're at it, I hope the developers add a "Quote" button to the original blog posts.

Yup, beta works much better. Cool.

The addition of a pager is one of the changes in the redesign, but I still don't see a way to quote the original blog post.

We never thought comments would grow that large... consider me wrong again. We'll try to patch it for the main site.

You could just delete comments at random from that post as a workaround, it's not like they are talking about anything important.

I'm not on a particularly new or fast desktop and the whole thing loaded in about 20 seconds for me.

All life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other.

But is it really broken? I get another page ready and then load that page so while it's loading I read that. Not everybody approaches loading pages the same way such that ...

They could use a "I broke the Geek" badge here... a few here would wear that badge of shame.
