I find this very hard to believe, why would you not have control over giant ads that appear in the middle of pages on YOUR site and cause the site to take forever to load? Even with an ad blocker the site noticeably lags as it attempts to load these and gets blocked... Sometimes it takes minutes to load one page, I often visit and leave immediately because the site is unusable because the lag is too high.

 

EDIT: And this has happened since your post as well...

 

This is not Poco's site... maybe we should collect and buy it for him though.

As @Download-Fritz says, I don't own the site, but would definitely tone them down if I did :)All advertising decisions are made by the owners (Fubra) to cover the server costs

 

I simply maintain the site in my spare time as a hobby project

 

Ok, so someone else owns the server and you rent from them or what? Either way, then what are donors donating their money towards, if not server resources? And if you are using someone else's server, why not just use a service that allocates your own resources...? I'm confused because I've never (and would never) allow a server to force ads upon my site, it's basically the touch of death, even with ad block you can see that the ads take a significant amount of resources locally trying to load them. Which I imagine eventually causes the slow downs that seem to happen often... And if not, that service is worthless anyway as the site is almost unusable very often. Also ever since the upgrade I have black boxes that checkerboard the site randomly as I scroll.

I have already stated I would be willing to pay to transfer it.

 

I still don't understand what possible deal would force ads, and if someone is willing to pay for that not to be the case I understand even less....

@apianti

The InsanelyMac.com is a property of Fubra they own the whole site.

But I'm with you on the ads and the donations we made to cover the costs, but it seems that the donations are not enough.

Can't see where he said "I own the site, but the server provider demands ads"... Maybe actually read your replies...

 

Is there ever a time where you're not a condescending {censored}?? I was trying to figure out what was going on, I can obviously read but unfortunately, not very well, as this site {censored} hurts my eyes. My point was more to what the hell are the donations for, if not for providing an ad free experience? There's no way this server costs more than donations it receives, otherwise maybe they should switch servers. Also, seems like it is their own server, so there probably is not even a very high cost. Plus I don't give a {censored} who owns the site, my entire point is why the {censored} is there ads that, at least for me, completely kill the entire experience of this website. They also cause a huge delay in loading the page. If I turn off my ad blocker, the site takes minutes to load, there's a still a noticeable delay with it on. Trying to look at multiple pages of a topic is pretty much useless because it gets stuck trying to load ads constantly with the page grayed out behind.

I find it far more likely they cover the costs fine and use the ads to make more money. But little do they know that it is causing the site to act slower than hell, and the ads take up most of the real estate of the page. Which annoys pretty much every one I've talked to who uses the site, except for apparently DF, who is fine with ads. He loves them, said he wanted an entire forum with only ads and no content - easier for him to follow mindlessly. Oh, my favorite part is when they are videos that auto play and are louder than what I'm currently watching/listening. So great. Where is a dark/night theme? Because I need a theme that is easier on my eyes and I know I'm not the only one who does....

Sure, such as when I'm talking to people that aren't.

May I propose not giving the voluntary {censored} who I have seen working his ass off for free over the past years, then?

@apianti Yes there's ads and it makes irritation, but the problem of loading page has gone, the pages are loading instantly. I don't have your skills, but i think you just have to see if the problem is not somewhere, i always use safari, and as you can see in the screen recording bellow i don't use ad block, and it just loads up the pages just fine with only ADSL 12Mbps!

 

I think we just have to enjoy this site, because it doesn't have it's double :no:

The site is owned by Fubra, so they are the ones responsible for choosing ads, as well as providing hosting and technical support. I have no involvement in any financial decisions whatsoever, but I do know that ads/donations do not bring enough to run the site as we'd like :/

 

I'm spending a little bit each day patching things up - hopefully keeping things going in the right direction. I haven't had too much issue with the site performance for the past couple days, but there is still much work to be done in that area I agree. I haven't noticed any scrolling issue, and my laptop turned 9 years old this month :p

I would like to repeat my request.

Add a Favicon to the website. That way, the bookmark to insanelymac looks more appealing.

I'm not seeing this, I have one myself?

I think this is a Safari specific issue. I'm no web dev but this might help.

I am encountering a new issue. I have enabled notifications support in Safari. When I click a Safari notification, the notifications button in the website stops working. I have to reload the page for it to work again.

Okay, thank you, sorry if I was short with you but I asked you not someone else and it's annoying....

I am having long load times... :wacko:

I am seeing insane block boxes everywhere, with or without ad blocker. I've attached a few examples.

EDIT: Is there anyway to remove the ads for donors and developers or something? Since they have obviously been contributing to this community?

The site is unusable for me entirely. It takes minutes for pages to load and random black boxes appear every where while scrolling. Apparently if there are any when I started typing, they move around. I have 100Mbps internet, every other site loads in an instant, not even noticeable, and I'm copying 48GB to cloud drive and streaming in 1080p. I only see these boxes on this site. The problem is insanelymac.

I know your problem has taken long since the big update, from your first post here on for this issue!

I think it’s related to your browser, i don’t have same ads like you, but for sure it’s insanelymac problem, just deal with that until fixing it!

I have shame because i still haven’t donated yet, but if i donate and when I have money it will be for the love of this website.

    • By Allan
      Hello guys, how are you?

      Slack: #insanelymacworkspace.slack Discord: Link Official IRC channel: Link if the link didn't work you can follow this settings.  
      Tip for IRC users: You can use Textual.app for free - Just download Xcode and follow this guide. 
       
      For all of this channels please follow the same Rules are we have in the Forum, be kind and post useful things.

      Rules 
      Our goal is ensure that the forum remains a helpful & friendly place to learn about how to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware, and of course other general banter. We want you to be able to discuss anything and everything here, and to do so we ask that you check out these guidelines for forum use.
       
      Do not upload anywhere else files when developers specifically ask not to. We take this matter very seriously, as developers are the very heart of our community.
       
      No Flaming. This includes racism, threatening, personal attacks, victimization or hateful content. Retaliation will not be tolerated either; if a member has broken a rule, please use the report feature on the forum and the staff will deal with the situation appropriately.
       
      No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents.
       
      Do not publicly argue the decision of a moderator. If you disagree with a moderator take it up with them in private via PM.
       
      Only one (1) login is allowed per member. Duplicate accounts will be banned or deleted.
       
      Bumping of posts is not permitted. Other than being less annoying it also keeps the posts more informative.
       
      Meaningless and useless posts may be removed at Moderator's discretion.
       
      Only post your post once (1). This keeps the forum cleaner and makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
       
      No advertising or business offers of any kind.
       
      No posting of copyrighted material. This includes copying and pasting news articles from news websites.
       
      Attached materials must come with clear descriptions of what they are and what they do, linking to this information elsewhere is not sufficient.
       
      Materials derived from Open Source must include source code, as well as an explanation of what has been done to it.
       
      Discussion of P2P, torrent sites, or similar download sites of any kind will not be tolerated. We do not want to know your illegal downloading habits.
       
      Do not post spyware or any other malware. This includes linking to other sites which may contain it.
       
      Posting just to promote another site, product, or service (spamming) is not allowed. This site is not here for you to promote your own or anyone else's material.
       
      Discussion of commercial spin-offs of the OSx86 scene is allowed if it’s to understand their existence, but no discussion of how to use them, nor any support for these commercial spin-offs are allowed as they are not in the spirit of the OSx86 scene. Example of commercial spin-off: tonymacx86.
      Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86 VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! (ABOUT TONYMACX86 AND iATKOS M / Y / EC / SR)  
      Posting Guidelines
       
      If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic.
       
      Post in the correct forum and read the forum description. This will make sure that your post will not be removed.
       
      Pick an appropriate title and tags (if any) for your post. A good title makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Using informative tags allows for improved searching of related topics.
       
      All posts must be clearly written and easy to read. For example, if you have long blocks of text, use the Code option, etc. Limit "empty lines"
      as much as possible, use punctuation where you can and be concise. Posts may be edited for this reasons by InsanelyMac staff at their discretion.
       
      Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome. It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective.
       
      Your topic does not deserve any more attention than others seeking help hence topic titles must reflect their content, and topic titles containing things like: 'please help' 'look here' 'cash reward' 'urgent' or other inaccurate descriptions will be removed. This includes all-caps titles.
       
      Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed. Watch this video to guide you how to do that: [Video] How to add a signature.
       
      Signatures, Avatars and Nicks
       
      Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately.
      To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind.
      Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information?

      They should also contain no referral or affiliate program graphics.
       
      Avatars should be in "good taste," a qualification that is broad enough to let us determine what is and isn't. Goth-devil-child-wild-eyed-in-the-violent-blackness probably qualifies as being in bad taste. Nothing offensive, pornographic, or vulgar.
       
      Nicknames must be readable by the system (without question marks). This will ensure that your nickname can be searched, and that other users can contact you. They should also not contain staff member groups (administrator, moderator, developer, etc.) to prevent confusion.
      Nicknames should also show respect to the community, thus nothing containing offensive language. Email addresses must be real (nothing like bugmenot or similar). Accounts not in line with the last two rules will be edited or deleted without warning.
       
      Policing
      Do not publicly discuss the decision of a moderator. If there is any issue with a decision of a staff member PM them or contact an admin.
      Moderators have the ability to suspend or impose posting restrictions upon accounts based on the user's history. Records are kept to keep track of user's behavior and point out repeat offenders. Attempts to circumvent posting restrictions will lead to your account being banned, and any other accounts affiliated with your account being banned also.
      These rules cover a broad spectrum and are set up to preserve a free and open (and fun) place for discussion. They, in conjunction with common sense and good judgment, should steer you in the right direction. We're all human and we know that people make mistakes... but that's also not an excuse. More rules are subject to appear on this board as we see fit, so please check back from time to time for your own benefit.
       
      Thanks for joining our community and helping make it the best it can be.
       
      In case the rules localizations should differ, the English rules are the standard.

      Many users wonder why we do not support tonymac's products here at InsanelyMac. The reason is that we believe he is a commercial spin-off of the OSx86 scene, and it's not in the spirit of OSx86 to have commercial intents with development.
      These are the main reasons why we don't approve posting his material here (why he's a commercial spin-off):
       
      1. His software is not open source. This is often confused because most people equate open source software with free software. This is definitely true, but it doesn't grasp the entire scope of open source; open source also includes releasing source code for the product, which tonymac fails to do. The OSx86 community believes everything should be open source.
       
      2. The construction of his site is set up with emphasis on donation buttons and (affiliate) links to Amazon and Newegg, hinting at interests of profit.
       
      3. The intent of gaining profits is basically confirmed by marketing his projects with suggestions of donations as though he deserves it, even though his products (most notably #####) is a compilation of products/drivers developed by others (not himself) that any non-programmer could put together.
       
      4. You must pay for the tonymac software. Although this may seem reasonable considering the effort involved in building a customized installer for specific computer builds, again, it is not in the spirit of OSx86 to charge for software development, so the wiser idea would most likely be not to offer that service at all. Even though it may be nice for newbies, in my opinion it does not encourage education but rather laziness. I say this because the OSx86 movement is designed as an educational movement, where by hacking Mac OS X you can learn more about the operating system works, how computers work, etc., like how many of us do. However, the purpose of OSx86 is not a way to get a cheap Mac, which I personally believe is encouraged by tonymac's software considering it is marketed to perform a task without any sort of explanation of how it works.
       
      From another perspective: http://prasys.info/2011/01/tonymac-seriously/ This covers one of the issues brought up by developers.
       
      In two sentences: at InsanelyMac, we want to keep moral standards high and safeguard genuine developers.
      At tonymacx86 they take from others without giving credit.
       
      In order to make sure that it doesn't happen any longer, staff have now a new guideline:
