    It takes forever for pages to load on this forum board and I was wondering if the administration has checked the speed of the page and if there is a solution

    All the other sites I visit all load much faster so I know it’s not my personal computer

    I am on cable connection (home) and dsl connection (work) and I find that the page-loads are fairly consistant with many other forums that I visit. There are many outside factors that will create slow load-times like hotlinked images and the GoogleAds at the top.

    I haven't setup a "fast-access" type account without the GoogleAds yet - it is a thought in the back of my head, because I am not sure if I would like to do that with such a new forum.

    If there is enough call to remove the google ads, I might setup a paid-subscription system - and - try to keep it a fair value.

    I don't find this site particularly slow... either at work or at home. But I have noticed my commonly visited sites are sometimes slow to load... like someone somewhere is throttling things.

    I have a Verizon broadband card for my laptop, everything loads just fine for me. But on the other hand I'm getting a little more slow now.

    Bragger. You must be younger than I, just wait 'til you get to my age. Oh, I forgot, I'm not old, I've just lived a long time.

    I have 56k dialup too and this site isn't any slower that any other one for me. Sometimes it is slow and some pics might not download, but that's consistent with other sites as well. I think the government is watching you, Von.
