Shops Should Cut Down on Extras

by chrisfaithalin

I am tired of being on an important quest or job and being slowed down by how slow a shop opens up because of all the stuff on it. I am always on a job or a timed quest where the faster you are the better the reward. I am in a hurry to get the item and leave the shop, but many shops have complex backgrounds, tons of unnecessary pictures and music, which causes the shop to load slowly and for me to lose time that is very precious when on a job or quest.

I don't know about what other quest and job goers think, but it annoys me when shops load slowly and it takes forever for me to finally get the item. It is so hard sometimes to find the item I want, because of the extremely large amount of pictures I have to go through to get to the section of the shop with the items. With music, and a complex background causes the site works even more slowly and thus I can't make my way through a shop quickly. It's like being on crowded mall on Saturday, all you want to do is get out but it is impossible. With everything working slowly I cannot back out the shop. What's worse is that these shops are usually the shops with the best deals so I am stuck. It's quite frustrating.

To add to all this mess, I usually listen to music on my computer but with music in the shop and music playing on my computer causes the computer to work even more slowly and it plays itself along with my music, so I get this really weird version of "Who Let the Dogs Out?" and "Safety Dance" at the same time. I can't pause my CD player because all of the other junk on the site that needs to load, which as I keep saying slows down my computer, causing me to lose minutes from my job or quest time and every minute counts when you are doing a quest or job... especially jobs.

So, please, when creating a shop or changing it, try to leave out all the unnecessary stuff like picture backgrounds, extra pictures, music and things that can slow the person trying to shop at your store, it makes life so much easier. Thank you.
