    I've noticed a major slowdown with my site since upgrading to WordPress 3.1 I ran a few tests and found that GD Star Rating is loading EVERY individual star image in the background. In 2.x version of WordPress it only loaded the images being used. Is there a fix for this, it's really killing my load times.

    Here is an old test:

    Here is the latest test, with GD on:

    With GD off:

    I have the same problem... running WordPress 3.1

    Its adding approximately 2-3 seconds loading time to my website, even on pages where there are no star ratings being used.

    I haven't found a solution yet. But there is a workaround. If you go to the Graphics page in your settings panel, you can select specific sizes and types of stars/thumbs. Most likely you're only going to be using one type of rating graphics right? If you unselect all the rest, they won't load with the CSS file.
