Why is TVF becoming such an unusable website?

Recommended Posts

Is this the start of a revolt,the mods must be pulling their hair out,

trying to figure  who to ban, delete,they may be used to the odd

complaint,but this is now 4 pages.

There are demonstrations in HK, Columbia,Iraq,Iran,France and now

TV.

regards Worgeordie

Opera Browser also eliminates all the problems that @thaibeachlovers is complaining about.

I wonder if the Opera browser will also solve his his problem of the cursor movement.

Like with so many other things in life, the question of whether or not to continue participation in a forum is basically a question of the benefit-cost ratio.

I don't think the browser is his problem, I run Win10 and chrome and don't have any problems with the cursor jumping. it seems to me that there is probably something wrong with his machine, perhaps the touch pad. Perhaps he either needs to decrease or increase the cursor speed, or play around with touchpad preferences.

But those new pop ups are very annoying, I constantly have to close them because they cover functionality. It is making TVF very difficult to use.

"If you have problems with the cursor jumping around while you are typing, you are probably resting your hand on the touchpad, or accidentally touching it, or you have a defective/damaged touchpad or touchscreen. ... Your Chromebook cannot adjust for poor typing methods. "

They should be outlawed.

Quite funny reading some of the posts on this thread.

Gawd i thought i was the cranky old b++ger but some on here are worse than me.

Stop with your moaning you miserable bar stewards, Thai visa is a damn good site, some things not perfect, but what is?

So the ads are a bit annoying, they need money coming in to survive, mods are a necessary evil, on other sites little or no moderation, some of the posts are shocking.

I am fairly certain the issue is on your end. For one start using add blockers. You still get the adds on the side, but it's small, but no more pop ups. ie Adblock Plus (free) works fine with Firefox etc.

 

Also the pop ups alone shouldn't cause you to lag this bad. Fast internet is nice and all, but if you have a crappy, slow pc or overworked laptop, that won't help. Maybe you have a <deleted> ton of malware on your box?

 

I have never experiened ANY technical difficulties here or slow speeds, at all. And I usually have like 27423423423 tabs open in my browser, VLC player running in the background, etc. I live in the boonies, kind of, so the fastest internet connection available to me isn't even a hard line, it's mobile (LTE), and even there no more than maybe 18 mbit (on a good day).

Then must be at my end too.

 

I use a Samsung Note phone - have to fiddle about closing ads before I can access controls, but some ads can't be closed so I need to go back and reload until a different ad appears.  It's bordering on unusable.

I have been tying to access the classifieds motor and marine section but all I get is      


Network Error (tcp_error) 

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out" 
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time. 

For assistance, contact your network support team. 

 

Has anyone have this problem ?

Do please note that I said ALL of the problems. I was enduring exactly the same issues as the O/P, especially that irritating cursor problem, until I switched to Opera.

 

Happy browsing. 🙂

For those that care, you might be a bit more concerned that TVF have embedded Facebook Pixel Code in all these pages, to track everything you're looking at on the site (and elsewhere on your browser) and feed that data automatically back to Facebook so you get more targeted ads thrown at you.

 

I don't have a problem with sites advertising - they have a right to make a buck - but putting Facebook trackers all over your site when it is widely known that Facebook do nothing but build big datasets on individuals and then sell the life out of us, is a bit over the top. I'd trust GoogleAds long before I gave anything of value to Zuckerberg - would be nice if TVF considered a switch too.

 

Facebook recently registered a company in Singapore and didn't even bother to disguise the fact that they no longer have anything to do with social networking. Their registration states:

Principal Business Activity

 

 

 

'Nuff said!

 

 

Interesting, I have to check this with another OS, as the link doesn't work with NoScript activated.

That I Why I think “why have thai ad?”

Sometime people ask question. I know the answer. Can help them if can write it. 

Then they can show to the thai person in real life what they want. 

 

Or for document/rule.

Or expalin a word.

or to correct a fake translation. 

Help misunderstanding.

Like that. 

 

Thankyou. 

You're getting by okay Yinn. I teach you English ... ABC

 

But I don't think you have an Ipad. I think you have a ThaiPad

Another problem I forgot to mention is that half the time I can't move the cursor back in the text if I make a mistake. It took me 5 goes to just make the cursor appear on the last sentence so I could put a full stop on it. If the only way to move the cursor is to use the up and down and sideways keys it's a DRAG.

I've been complaining about the speed of this forum for years, and nothing is done. Now it's functionality is becoming dire.

I'm wondering if I should just not bother any more, as it seems that if it goes on like this, I'm just going to go mental. 

I'll carry on but I can't say for how long I will continue to put up with <deleted> pop up VDOs blocking the page. 

 

Does anyone in charge care about the users experience?

What you need is the Tapatalk App, ah, we can't use that anymore
