This page is too large and is lagging due to the ammount of text/images and wikicode on the page. I think some content needs to me archived off. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 14:38, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Once upon a time I saw some instructons for archiving. But I haven't the foggiest ATM of where that was. When someone who does know comes along, would it be possible to include a link to Archiving instructions at the top of this page? That would prove most helpful and beneficial. And of course, on the archiving instructions page maybe we should put a NICE BOLD STATEMENT SAYING THAT IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT SHOULD BE ARCHIVED, ASK FOR HELP INSTEAD OF JUST DOING IT.--Degenret01 11:46, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Ah c'mon Degenret, you know that lag makes you reminisce about the good ole days. you know 300bps dial-up, punchcards, yeah, those were good times... ~kytti khat 15:00, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Not only do I remember them, I thought they were the coolest thing ever. Programming instructions on a punch card was just the bomb.:) --Degenret01 10:00, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

2 and half......wow thanks, for the reminder lol. I never quite thought of it in those terms--Degenret01 10:00, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Aw kytti, I remember 110 baud on a Bell 103 modem with acoustical couplers to a rotary dial telephone attached to a used Western Union teletype machine (complete with punch tape) that had yellow telegram paper. And you had to remember the old control codes like control-G (for the bell... an actual bell like a doorbell) and control-H for backspace. This was an "improved" version, however, with a real "enter" key instead of having to manually type control-M.
And yet I played some entertaining games on that machine, including an awesome 3-D multi-player space combat game and a multi-player fantasy game with a dungeon roughly similar to the stronghold of security.
It was later "upgraded" to a 220 baud dot matrix terminal. Now that was real speed!
On a more serious note, sometimes the multimedia resources on this wiki tend to be a little excessive, and if you are using dial-up connections to the internet (they do exist... and I just got DSL about 3 months ago so it isn't ancient history for me) can have problems. Even with my DSL line I still have problems with some of the pages that have a huge number of animated images. --Robert Horning 00:35, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
It seems to be fine. Loads in less than half a second for me. Admittedly I have 15mbps internet, but still - it doesn't lagg when I scroll or anything, and most of the discussion seems to have taken place within the last 3 months... -- Second-abyssal-whip.png  Bigd56   [talk] [highscores] 03:30, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
I too have high speed connectivity, however at peak times wikia's servers can be a bit slow to respond, so it's not entirely the fault of dial-up (shame on me for forgetting speeds below 150bps). ~kytti khat 04:15, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
I have a pretty fast connection (56 MBPS), and all-around, this wiki, and only this one - not any other wikia-hosted wiki - is very slow. Not to mention this one time last year when my internet broke and all I could do was access Wikipedia and runescape.com (but not the actual Java part). I wonder why I couldn't access this site? 15:01, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
My guess is your disconnectivity had something to do with wikitrolls... ~kytti khat 04:10, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
