    Hey everyone, it's your friendly neighbourhood AKP Graphics monkey with an important poll.
    You might have noticed some slow-downs and functionality issues with the forum since things have started changing. While we're still trying to sort everything out, part of the issue may be the introduction of GIF DPs. Since there have already been concerns raised by users in regards to this, we figured going forward it would be best to get your opinion on whether or not we keep them. So, here's your chance to have a say. Please note this does not necessarily mean that we will absolutely get rid of GIF DPs, it's just to gauge response going forward.

    If you have any questions regarding this or other site changes, please feel free to ask us questions here:
    https://www.allkpop.com/forum/threads/ask-a-staff-member.103

    If you have suggestions for changes or features you would like to see, you can post them here:
    https://www.allkpop.com/forum/threads/official-suggestions-thread.166867/

    Thanks for your input and have a great day!


    *UPDATE*: The source of the lag has been found, it is not the DPs. As many of you seem quite happy with them, as of right now we have no plans to remove them. Thank you all for your input!

    I have noticed the site crashing at times..

    I don't really mind either way though as I have no intention of changing my DP :3

    JEONGYEON'S CUTENESS IS ON A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!!!

    For me, it also hasn't affected much. The site is running smoothly and I haven't noticed any issues.

    The site is lagging a lot!
    I want the gif dps, but would prefer the site to be faster!
    Could the admins check the databases for the response time and reload time?
    It may have something to do with that!

    Admin has been trying to find the cause of it and GIF dps could be one of the possibilities
    it's not a 100% yet though.

    I don't care.. but I see people enjoying them so I think they should be kept.
    I haven't experienced any lagging though..

    Yeah adding too many features at once and giving multiple accesses does that most time!
    Must be a minute change,
    Tell them to refer with the last backup!
    Sometimes cancelling all the new updates, reverting back and then slowly adding helps a lot!

    I don't much care. If it would make the site functionality better, then I'm happy to not have gifs.

    Hasn't slowed down anything for me. Keep em. People seem to enjoy them. I can't find any that will fit the size requirement but, that's just cause I'm a flop TT.

    From what I have seen it's revamping a really old code!
    Pace your updates in such case!
    These changes are amazing!
    Just make sure you don't play a game do it all at once with it!
    Will help in the long run!
    Good luck!
    Even the external files can add to the vulnerability of the code though!
