I’ve had faith in FR for months now. I’ve religiously purchased $20-$50 worth of gems every single month feeling good about helping the site progress (and treating myself to some fancy items too).
NO MORE. NOT ANOTHER NICKLE FROM ME, FLIGHT RISING STAFF.
For months you’ve thrown up your hands…
Opening messages and using the ah has never caused an ad refresh - ever. You load the page once and do your business. That’s why you see a spinning circle: We don’t refresh the layout, just the content that needs to be refreshed in those pages. We did this across many pages in the site to negate full page reloads.
In fact, only the lair portion of that particular script really negated a layout refresh. It’s more of a security issue. The script in question was accessing parts of the site in ways that were not intended.
Don’t get me wrong, many of the changes are good ui improvements and things we would like to implement in future updates - as a part of the site, not a third party script. But they are not an instant fix to lag, which is a larger issue. Light sky and akiri are working on overall code optimization on our test server. No major changes in site performance have been noticed because no major changes are on the site you are playing on. We have a month’s worth of optimizations on the test site… being tested. (These are back end changes with how the site works, not new features, as clarification) We will continue to work improving the site throughout the life of the game, and such a thing is a never ending (but important) part of development.
Again, great suggestions, and a very talented programmer. :)
