I'm also replacing all small images on the page with a "CSS sprite"
(basically one combined images that is chopped up by the browser),
which should result in speedier loading of the page.

(6 "icons" and the flags have been done, more to follow..)

Edit: almost all small images have been merged into one, the page should load
much faster, even on a full reload (Shift + Ctrl + R on some platforms) :-)

This did work wonders: The puzzles started loading lightning-fast – except maybe the very first time I loaded the site each day, which was not a problem. But today, during the first hour after midnight CET, all puzzles are loading slowly again, especially the timed ones, which sometimes don't load at all. The automatic submission of solutions is also slow. I know this is a traffic issue, but it did seem like it had become less of an issue after you did the optimisation. [confused]

I'll look at the traffic stats of the server and will get back to you on this.

Possibly another tweak, like disabling the 'solved puzzles ticker' during the first hour, would help a lot here.

A silly bug _still_ made the page load Facebook and Google+ javascript code,
even with the "Don't load" option checked (!)

This has been fixed now, so the page should load even faster [woot]

Some stats: 10 people have the option to not load Facebook/Google+/Twitter enabled,
4 people have disabled the "solved puzzles ticker" ...

I'm still looking for translations into Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese and Russian for these lines:
Don't load Facebook/Google+/Twitter code
Don't show the "solved puzzles ticker"

Any volunteers? [wink]

Strange: At the moment (ca. 17:30 CET) all I get when trying to access calcudoku.org in Firefox is "Problem loading page" / "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading" messages. But when I add /forum to the URL the forum page loads without a problem [confused]

For me the server is a bit on-and-off as well at the moment (~ 17.45 CET), can't see yet what's causing it.

Spanish:
No descargar el código para Facebook/Google+/Twitter
No mostrar la banda con los "crucigramas resueltos"

Best, clm

Russian:
Не загружать код Facebook/Google+/Twitter
Не показывать напоминание о решенных головоломках

Well i can additionally help with russian translation if you need it :) cause sometimes translation is awfull. For example
Welcome back, %username% will look better "С возвращением, %username%" and not "Приветствуем Ваше возвращение, %username%"

PM me if interested [wink]

Thanks a lot, definitely :)

I just made those changes. You'll also notice that (1) there's some English here
and there on the Russian site, and (2) there are bits that are present on the English
(/Dutch/etc.) site, but not on the Russian one.

But for sure fixing the "bad language" has priority.

Patrick

PS: and I notice another "todo": make sure proper names show up in the forum
for Facebook users, not the "fb_15592" ...

Ok, that has been fixed.
