View Full Version : Why Is This Board So Slow???

I have wireless internet and every other site pops up quickly, all but this one. Is there a reason?

I have cable internet and this site is the only site I have problems with.I think it has something to do with their server.It can only handle so many people.

I would ask the same question.

Trying to look up anything from the archive has become a joke…it is like dial-up from the 90’s…………..!

Is it because it is plagued by so many forums...and multiple topics...???

Is it because of all the advertising…???

Is it because of some hidden security…???

Maybe with some downsizing of all the new stuff (like all these features no one seems to use) it might speed up?

It probably is the server because the official board time is off by over 12 minutes now and that number keeps on growing

But it is better than no board at all

I am having no trouble using dsl and firefox on either the board or the archive.

Of course most of the ads aren't loading so that could be something.

I've noticed it quite a bit but I just hit refresh and the pages usually load up with no problem.

It's been that way off & on for a couple weeks for me. I wouldn't say its as bad as dial-up, & usually it's fine, but there are times when the load time can get longer than it should.

I'm on a wireless cable modem and have absolutely no problems with load times for either the archive or the boards. Might be a regional slowdown. As for the board time thing, I never even look at the times so it's not much of an issue...

jeez, i'm on a 56k and all the pages seem to load fast enough for me.

I'm on cable and it works slow for me too most of the time.

Main forum page is super fast!
