I just wanted to get my point across and I am glad people are listening. Also Buddypress.org is probably the largest or one of largest sites running buddypress. Performance and usability issues at this website sends a negative signal.
This is a buddypress/wordpress issue. If you don’t believe me just see the source code for this page – Towards the end of the source code you’ll find something like this –
Generated in 3.178 seconds. (473 q)
That simply means this webpage needed 473 database queries to show you a few members and posts. If this is the situation with the official buddypress website running on latest hitech servers, fully optimized and cached, probably also using somekind of a CDN what else do you expect from the software itself?
