Unhappy Why is this site so slow?

I click on a section to go into and it takes several seconds, almost 5-6 seconds for the site to go there. Why is it so slow?

I'm betting that has more to do with your internet connection than anything else. VBulletin is very lightweight. Might also have to do with the browser you're using

I only go on psycentral on my phone (iPhone) and it's instant. Fast. Immediate. I tried it once on my kindle and it took forever. So it's either your devices or your internet. Not this site

It would be your internet connection then. I've used this site on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10 with no issues. Chrome, Firefox, and Internet explorer (if I have to). Do a speed test on your browser, maybe?

Most slowdowns on any Internet site, including ours, are usually temporary and not anything we can readily do anything about. If, however, it's a consistent thing for you, it's more likely your Internet connection or your ISP's internet connection to our servers (neither of which we can do much about either).

It's not clear from your brief message if this was a temporary problem you were experiencing, or a longer-running concern. It's also not clear what part of the site you were concerned about -- the forums, the main website, a blog, or something else. Usually the more detailed information we have, as we ask in the 'Read this first' post, the better we can be of assistance.

I noticed it has been slow too. Like when I'd click on a forum, it would take a while to load, as opposed to other sites, I'd go to, which were fine. it seems better right now though.

So it's not just my computer, browser, or internet connection. It's the same thing with other people.

I'm relieved to have verification.
