[Optimization] We have released an update that optimizes a number of pages

This morning for the sake of speeding up the service and our ongoing efforts to optimize this platform in the midst of a considerable traffic influx we have made some general updates across a number of pages, the most notable being the front page list. We hope these changes will result in a noticeable speed increase for everyone!

Ok, that's it for now. Thanks for reading.

    Is there some way of supporting the site? Like "Snapzu Platinum" or something similar? :-D

      The most direct way of supporting the site currently I believe is a donation. I'm sure further options for support will be made available as things get figured out further, I believe ideas along the lines of Patreon were suggested.

    Thanks! Were there optimization changes made to the Snap submission dialog as well? It feels much faster than previously.

      To me it feels the same, but you know what? I actually like it that way. I feel like it gives you a chance to reflect on what you're about to post before you actually do it. Turned me away from posting a few times.

        Haha, well the Submit button takes about the same amount of time. Biggest thing I noticed was adding tribes to post to feels much faster, and more responsive for me. Maybe it's just a load thing.

    Great stuff.

    Is there a page where we can make feature requests?

    Nice job. There is a noticeably increase in performance. The site feels a lot snappier. Just from a technical curiosity stand-point, what were these optimizations?

    Snapzu has been running faster for me today, so it seems it's working. Great work, teamsnapzu!

    Site seems snappier (pun intended). Page response times are under a second. Used to be 2-3s per page call.
