Images Slow to Load -- We're On It!


You may have noticed that some images are being slow to load on Polyvore. Our image generation system was overloaded this morning and while the main issue has been resolved, we're taking active measures to make sure everything gets back to normal as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you may still find some slow images. Thanks for your patience while we work to fix this!

You're fixing that? Why don't you start with the activity first?

please, on our homepage i don't want to see the person's icon, i think the name is just fine. take care of this.

And what's even more odd is that when a set wins a contest the image for the set DOES NOT show up AT ALL! It's been like this for WEEKS now. Can you fix that please; and maybe remove the whole follow/like buttons that show up in the activity page when someone comments or likes a set or collection. It's annoying.

And maybe also remove the person's icon too; I really don't need to see those in my activity page.

On the Activity page, please remove the person's icon, we really don't need that. Also, could you remove the follow/like buttons that show up in the activity page when someone comments or likes a set/collection? Thank you!

Please change the activity! I HATE it, it's so hard to look at, at first I thought that people were putting my sets in their collection by the looks of it!

Are page views accurate? I think they're very delayed.

I agree with most about the icons on the activity page. I find it quite useless and taking up much room. It makes it look much more messier and a lot of things going on. Just the name would be fine and would appear more better and the page would look cleaner. Please work to fix this! Thank you so much!

Hi having the picture icon and the name, on the activity page, is just overkill and not necessary. Really don't like it.

I agree with the comments above. I think the delayed activity needs to be fixed first and the icons of the users on the 'activity' page are completely unneeded. Thanks.

I agree we don't need the icon.

What everyone else said. There is no need at all to see the person's icon. All these useless and completely unannounced changes make it feel like being in a constant beta version of the site.

Yes, why are the set views so delayed? I think it went 3 days without updating. Terrible.

the icons aren't needed but i do like the follow/like buttons, just don't make them any bigger than they need to be please.

I agree with Gothic Phoenix, I also have not been able to see the sets image from contest wins. I believe it is fine to keep the icons small when someone added a set or item of yours to a collection of theirs.
Furthermore, delayed updates on sets needs to be taken care of. I don't feel as if they are accurate, and I have notced the lateness some days. Though I understand how much members you must have to do this for, I think maybe doing small bits of these for now will help and you can expand bigger eventually. I think you took to much space up on activity overall.

Also, it's not just images that are slow....but the whole POLYVORE SITE is being very slow in downloading. And my reason for not liking the whole icons is that it's confusing because it used to be that the left image would be a set and then the next would be the collection it was added to. So now, since we are used to that, the icons are VERY confusing to many.
