    For the last few days -- since I've been back on after being offline for four days -- I've been experiencing glacially
    slow page loads on this forum, and only this forum. All other sites I visit regularly load at normal speed.

    Sometimes, it takes as much as two minutes for a page to load; I often walk away, or visit another site, then come back rather than waiting. Sometimes pages don't load at all; I just get a white background.

    Anybody else experiencing this? If so, or not, anyone have any ideas about why it's happening?

    I haven't noticed anything different on my end. Everything loading fine and the same speed as usual.

    Interesting. Must be something on my end. Took around 30 sec to load this page. The problem seems time of day independent: morning, afternoon, evening -- all the same.

    I haven't tried clearing the cache yet, although I acknowledge that could be involved. However, again, I'm experiencing this issue only on this forum -- no other pages: not Facebook, not Netflix, no where else.

    The problem with clearing the cache is, I lose cookies relevant to other frequented sites also.

    I'll give it a few more days, see if it resolves on its own, or if others are having issues.

    I'll add that it's not just page loads that are slow. When I post, the server just hangs, sometimes for over a minute.

    When I hover over "alerts" (about new posts in threads I'm watching), the list doesn't drop down for 10 - 15 seconds. Previously, it was nearly instant.

    Very curious behavior.

    Weird. All good here. I have been experiencing painfully slow page reads, but that's just because my kids keep stealing my ipad.

    ......LOL

    Nope running just fine here still. Maybe a network coverage issue (mobile device ?) but other pages should suffer the same fate.

    No issues since I have closed all the tabs with free porn.

    Sheepdog above noted an issue as well. But that is the only other person I am aware of, no other reported issues.

    It's really bad latley. It took 5 minutes and three tries to post my message above. Sometimes I just get a white screen.

    Mine is so bad I can barely use the forum. This is the only topic I've loaded in about two days. Most times it's takes more than two minutes to load and just loads a blank screen. Yet as a guest viewing from the same device everything loads fine.
