Why are the LIST VIEWS so unbelievably slow? One just took over 4 minutes to upload.
First nothing happens: the page stays blank. For quite a while.
Just when you are about to give up, a whole lot of text suddenly appears.
And then nothing more happens. The picture placeholders sit empty and the page freezes: you cannot navigate it or move around on it. You HAVE TO WAIT. Forever.
Why can the text not just load slowly, so that one can at least so some work or planning? Why does the page have to freeze?
Eventually the pictures arrive. They all seem to arrive together (after all why would you want to look at just one observation when you can wait for several minutes?). Except that they do not display. They wait for you to scroll to that part of the page, and then they keep you waiting for 3-8 seconds just for the hell of it - so that you can appreciate how much work the html is doing in showing you this - and then they load up at a leisurely pace.
Why can they not just all load on the page bam!!! Why on earth are we kept waiting for nothing?
Of course, it is probably worse in southern Africa at the far end of the long undersea cables under the Atlantic and Red Sea, with out kilobyte lines and couriers carrying emails from town to town in cleft sticks holding their cellphones (these are now available in parts of the first world as selfy sticks - dont forget where they came from!!).
