I haven't noticed any slow down at all on the forums or on the main site.

It would be great if the OP and others who agreed with the OP could follow-up with the additional information requested. It would help us determine if there's a problem we can fix on our end or not. Thanks!

It depends on how busy the sight is, at the time.

It sometimes provides me a similar issue as well. However, I imagine that it may revolve around the connection between the servers of the website to the user, rather than the device of the user itself. Currently, my ping is connecting at 16.5 ms, which is quite low, and I am additionally running on Ethernet, yet I have been experiencing some rather slow load times tonight.

PC runs slowly for me. The entire site. I don't have the problem with other sites. There is no specific time when PC runs slowly; it occurs at all times.

It's never slow for me. Don't use proxies. Maybe your PC is throttling. This is why you need to do maintenance on it, or replace your computer every few years.

Hi Doc,

Thanks for chiming in , it has been slower than usual. However I can`t see a reason , no Flash or Java , only an active chat and that would not slow the site down.

If I could offer a reason I surely would , the only thing I can think of ( and it`s a GR8 thing ) , is that we matter so much to so many and are able to reach all thoughs in need.

On second thought , the site is just fine !!

KP

It is still slow for me, especially when posting messages -- takes a long time between telling the system to post, and the post actually taking place.

Sometimes.


Note: testing this morning, I do not see any particular slowdown on the rest of the site. Just the forums.

But then, not always the forums either.

Default Re: Why is this site so slow?

what i'm finding right now is, if you're in a section you can post to threads and reply without an issue

try and move sections, or leave the site, it takes forever

even loading the site takes a while
