I have been uploading to this site more than 2 years now and have pretty much enjoyed it so far, not that I am going to stop, but nowadays it takes ages for the "http:www.airliners.net/addphotos" / upload page to load.
I have asked some fellow a.net user about 2 months ago and it seems that everyone has the same problem.

I agree Vasco
Itll load the space for the file path but itll stall for a bit for all the other stuff to come on....I dont know why the heck it does that. Its not an user speed issue too because im running Cable not 56k and it stalls for a while.

Well as I stated in an earlier thread, for me it is a whole lot worse. In addition to the long load (which never happens) I keep getting those dreaded 'screen freezes'. Frankly while I hate to see anyone else suffer, I am however relieved to see that a few others are having difficulties as a result perhaps now these problem(s) might be addressed.

it is slowest during the sites busy times, which seem to be (in my local time, Pacific time zone) 6am to 1pm. If you do it in the middle of the night it loads much faster. Maybe give it a try on off-peak hours.

Here's another suggestion that relates to the upload process (and may be augmenting the problem).
I just had a bunch rejected for a minor, technical infraction. I repaired the problem and went through the whole (re-)upload process from scratch.
Is there any way we could, for example, just re-upload the image only? So this way you don't have to re-enter (typing or cut 'n paste) ALL the information over again. It took me an hour to re-upload 10 images yesterday. And one of them got rejected again because, despite typing the correct information in the "Aircraft and Other Aircraft Generic" fields, my 727-022 image showed up as a Boeing 022! REJECTED! Badinfo! (So I re-re-uploaded it with proper info.)
Maybe there could be a "re-upload of rejected photos" page that is similar to the appeal page? Where all the info is retained and simply the image is replaced with a new one?
I think this would relieve a lot of workload from not only the photographers, but screeners as well as perhaps there won't be any typos or badinfo on the re-uploads. I can honestly say my mind was bleary from all the uploading I've done in the past three days and it was harder to detect typos...

I have the view the medium sized photos because of the time it takes for a large photo to load (have cable modem BTW). I think we're all pretty much experiencing the same problems. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

I don't know how the underlying page is constructed but I'm willing to bet that the data for the drop-down boxes comes from the database or some other offline storage, like a load of files holding the data. There's then a process which grabs this data and spits it out as proper HTML to generate the list boxes. IT's probably this code that's at fault. Possibly solutions are to optimise the code, the medium it's stored on or to render the page once and then cache that version and present it to everyone else.

this really sounds like an excellent idea. I allready tried to fit in the HTML-coding in my website. But I get stuck with 2 of the dropdown-boxes.
I believe Johan made it easier for the database-guys to arrange some menus.
Question for Johan: what about the idea of making satelite-websites around the world so the uploading-proces would go faster? Maybe you can e-mail 4 or 5 guys with a aviation-dedicated-airliners.net-spirited website?

On the subject of re-entering the info whe uploading, I've found that with IE6, when I place my cursor in the manual entry fields (i.e. Reg number) if I press the down arrow cursor key I get a drop down menu of ALL the entries I have ever made for that particular field, making the whole re-upload process considerably easier for me.
Of course if someone could furnish me with speed reading goggles.....
Hope that helps
