First off I have subscribed to chess.com before. I typically subscribe for one month at a time every three months or so to watch the videos. If I were playing here frequently I'd still subscribe all the time, but for now this is just a forum I troll and occasionally a source of videos for me.
I've got nothing against chess.com showing a few ads when I don't subscribe. We've all gotta eat. But for #^$% sake please ensure that your site will still load when one of your ads servers is acting up. I just spent 5 minutes locked out of the forums because of cdn.optimizely.com waiting to load and this is maybe the fifth time in the last month I've noticed this.
I don't see how this can be possible, I mean, the word "optimize" is right there in the name.
I have experienced that one to regularly slow down my chess.com page loading considerably, even though I am not supposed to see ads anyway. So I told my adblocker to deal with it.
I was about to make a complaint thread about this myself. I'm a paying subscriber, and several times my games have refused to load or taken several minutes to load because it hangs on "cdn.optimizely.com".
Just what in the hell is going on here?
Firefox and adblock plus got rid of this for me.
Best plugin ever installed
That's great (and I'm going to do that as well), but the point is a paying subscriber shouldn't get this problem.
when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
Maybe, but by NOT blocking it, (if you have a dodgy connection), the site becomes largerly unusable. It's not just a little slower, this page would take 2-3 minutes to load for me if I dont disable.
It must be time to declutter or upgrade..I use a digital watch..It's a bitch!
I used Ad Block on Google Chrome..
