I've been posting in forums for the past couple of days and have noticed it's taking 3-5 seconds for posts to go through after I submit them. I don't have baseline data on load times and performance here, but that seems longer than it used to take.

Possible to put on the roadmap an assessment of load times there and perhaps some exploration of ways to speed things up a bit?

Fwiw, as I'll be using to Commons more intensively now that I'm at the GC, and would be happy to take on a more significant UX review role... ready to serve when the time is right.

Thanks for the report, Luke. I'll take some time to look into it.

I had to test some forum-related stuff and noticed how awful this was, so I decided to look into it sooner rather than later.

The problem is that bbPress is triggering a topic/reply count recalculation every time a reply is posted. I don't know why this just started becoming apparent recently - I took a quick look at the bbPress logs, but it seems like this "feature" has been baked into bbPress since time immemorial.

I've put a truly unholy workaround into place in and I'm going to ship it in 1.8.13. Luke, can I ask you to test again after tonight's release, and let me know whether you notice a difference?
