The forum really is slower than ever. Thumbnails, and the pictures themselves load extremely slow, sometimes not at all.

My latest wallpapers:
i haven't noticed much change in the loading speed.
Intel Core 2 Duo
4 GB RAM
using speedtest 5MB download
for me the whole forum became very slow as well. within the last week (i think) it became worse and worse.
since ytd the pages stop loading at all. pages just freezes e.g. at 47/487 objects to load -.-
pictures itself very slow too.
or is it only me?
(i remember this situation from 2 or 3 months ago ?! but one day suddenly it became fast as hell again; until now... )
 dunno if important: my net is stable @ 10-11 mbs download, ping 30 ms, using opera, xp, duo e8600, 4 gb ram (3,5) and so on... all quite normal
Yeh the site just seemed to die in the last week or so, lots of thumbs not loading, the "generate new pics" below a main pic isn't loading at all. Getting heaps of "this pic has been moved" messages that appear as a banner
Hello everyone, how you manage to download the wallpapers, it appears the windows over the wallpapers and not able to close them ... not easy! Why is the biggest site that acts as wallpaper ... you can not download!
Anyone know how?
I have a problem loading multiple tabs... It's as if the server has a very very small timeout limmit.
I have gotten into the habbit of using skins in the early hours to avoid the peak (slow) times. But last 3-4 days, it has been extreamly frustrating trying to get the big posts containing lots of images.. Day or night.. peak or off peak there now seems to be no optimal time to visit skins
Is any1 else getting this problem????
When i say low time out.... If you open up 5-6 tabs quickly... it loads the first 2 or 3..
but the other tabs load no image - But loads the site frame, button's etc.. is specificaly the Image that doesn't load

i get that too with multiple tabs... but those imgs that arent loading, dont load anything at all... nothing... just timeout/server unavailable
threads sometimes only load one or two posts as well
after a refresh or two they usually load fully tho
??* R.I.P. ??*
is any1 going to give feedback on these multi tab loading timeouts...
I'm a network/server eng'er and i will guess, that to try and increase performance during peak times, they have altered their php.ini and httpd.conf files.
What ever they changes needs changing back.... I really like skins.be.. its better and easier than all the other forums and blogs. But the loading problems are really letting the site down.
we have disabled multiple connections, as at some point we were getting 100 connections from a single IP - which was not good for our image-servers.
So in order to give everybody the same "speed" we only allow anymore one connection per IP to our image-hoster.
We are working on a solution so people will still able to open x-images via tabs in the background without getting blocked.
so as usual, because of one (minority) dumbass the rest of us (majority) get the short end
??* R.I.P. ??*
Yeah that makes sense, But may i suggest looking into the time outs... as i find once 2-3 images have loaded... the rest have all timed out. waiting for images 1 by 1 makes perfect sense
seems your keeping ur settings as they are... it is extraordinary frustrating getting the large image posts. i don't think this qualifies as an image host
I love skins to bits, i really really really do. But the recent changes have completely spoiled it for me personaly and i'm sure many others that don't care enough to let you know about it.
OK.... I have found a solution, within firefox
use the about:config to get to ur firefox settings.. and filter out 'connections' and change max connections per server to 2
This allows u to open up many tabs within skins... each image loading 2 at a time
And i hope this proves my love for skins.. changing my global settings to suit this one site
wont that affect the speed on other sites?
Technically yeah.. but so far facebook etc all comes up nice and fast.
I've only changed 'per server' connections, which will be per IP/DNS lookup.. the global settings is still on default 30 connections. so you can still load up many sites and not bog down.
But all i use my internet for is Facebook, Torrents, Xbox and celebrity perving... so personaly i'm not going to disrupt myself much... and it fixes my issues with skins
just believe me.. giving everybody more than one connection is not makable (e.g. "reverting the settings" - how some believe) as neither we could do this financially nor technically (at least not without being senseless)
additionally, please keep in mind, this is a thread about the forum, not the imagehoster. The forum and mainsite are not affected by these new limits...
still a difference Valkyr - I believe there is already a thread concerning speed issues with the imagehoster - please differ and post there if needed - otherwise people tend to go offtopic and we will be discussing here how to get facebook faster .
Btw Is there currently an issue with thumbs (not images)? Works fine here.
if i click the thumbnails, no images load. i get a blank site with the turning thing turning forever.
the statusbar tells me "waiting for ajax.googleapis.com", so maybe thats the cause.
the upload thing is horrible, i just tried four times to upload something. in 2 cases it just stopped to do anything, even after 30minutes, and in the other cases i got blank pages or "waiting for skins.be" for years.
I haven't uploaded much the last time but six pics at once yesterday were no problem.
7 per remote the other as well without problems
Just use imagebam and let the re-up script fetch them for you
This image is tagged as adult content. If you want to see content that contains adult materials, you have to click the following link.
Yes, I want to see adult content on Skins.be.
Even after i clicked on that link it showing the same thing again and again.
Now can anyone know why this happening.
I am using Windows XP + Internet Explorer 8
Hello, since a few days i have a lot of troubles loading images (thumbnails and images) on skins.be, is it a server problem or mine? I visit the website since a long time and i never had this problem before, nothing changed on my computer or connection... any tip?
edit : just noticed the other thread about this problem... my bad
Same problem as a lot of other people - hardly any thumbnails load the past few days. Hope you can fix it, this has been my favorite site for many years. Good luck and thank you.
Still not fixed! Mmmm maybe better to just google search my Babes from now on! Come on guys hard can it be its 2011 now! maybe charge a small fee to each of us members to help with server and bandwith! no point in haing a site if there are no sites to be seen!............................................. ..
