If you find that loading forum messages is slow, there are two settings you can change on the Community Preferences page:

* Check the "Hide Badges" box. If you're not in Europe you probably have a ping time above 100 ms, and loading all those little badge images that everyone earns takes a while. Have you seen how many different badges people have? A tenth of a second for each one adds up.

* Check the "Show images as links" box. If a forum post contains an image from a third party site, including all badge or credit signature images, and that site is down or slow, it will significantly slow down loading the forum message page.

You can leave avatars and signatures turned on if you wish. They don't affect forum speed significantly.

Modern web development offers several ways you can deal with this giant number of small requests issue. It's something people have been dealing with for years. The bicycle was already invented, so to speak (this russian idiom probably doesn't translate well).

The new and preferable way is to use http/2. If you don't know, this is a well explained set of articles. And this is the guide for the web-server that PG is running on.

The older, but also possible way is making an image sprite. Basically, you put all badges on one image and the correct one is displayed by css rules (width, height & background-position). I can make you the implementation. You have css files loaded here anyway already (actually, 3 of them). Loading one sprite image (and caching it) is much-much more effective.[/url]

No, inventing the wheel is a bit different idiom. Wheel is a basic thing, while bicycle is a more complicated system to achieve certain goal. Either way, that's not that important.

I made this change because I didn't want one-line messages to take up so much vertical space on my screen. The fact that pages load faster is just a side-effect.
