Hello everyone! in Introduce Yourself Posted February 21 On 2/14/2021 at 9:56 AM, GoldberrysHusband said: Oh, I didn't get scared at all 😀 Like I said, I don't suppose I'm going to be very active before I'm going to get really deep in the series. These past few days have been very hectic and I had no proper time for reading, so I'm only about 77 % through TEOTW (currently meeting Elayne), so I don't feel like it's really proper to roam the forums (fora? heh...). But thankfully I would say I'm a rather fast reader in general, so I think I'll catch up. I don't mind getting into discussions and arguments (I'm an apologist by nature and St. Dominic and G. K. Chesterton are on my proverbial bedside table, so to speak), so I'm fine with whatever comes my way - and although I realize it's supposed to be about the Ogier in WOT, the "don't be hasty" comment reminded me of one of my favourite characters in a pleasant way... you know where and whom I'm talking about. (From the movie: "We lost the ent-wives." "How did they die?" "We can't find them!" ...just... hilarious) When I decide to finish something, I usually do so (I finished Malazan remember? 😀), so unless something really unpredictable happens, I won't get scared, I won't jump the ship and I'm probably going to be an active member proper, I hope. As long as I'm welcome, which - like I said - the general WOT community seems really welcoming in general, so I don't think that's going to be a problem. Just one thing - and I hope you don't take this personally - what's with the forum's engine? It's cripplingly slow for me (like, the page loads for a whole minute or two) and it's not my internet connection - I tried several rather fast ones, but it keeps its really slow pace and honestly, it's somewhat unpleasant, patient as I might be in general. Is this a known problem? Or is there any way I could improve that for me? Oh, and remember I come from a backwoods country, so if I'm ever going to be misunderstood, blame it on my thin grasp of the English language and have patience with me, I beg of you 🙂 Hi there, thanks for posting this. Yes, I'm aware of this issue and it drives me crazy, too. It only started in the past several months. We have plenty of hardware, and our internet speed to our servers is fine. (Other websites hosted on the same hardware load fine). It's a configuration issue somewhere and I just haven't had time to solve the issue yet. But I agree that it's a problem and I'll definitely work on it when time allows. Thank you for your patience!
