There have been a couple members who have noted speed issues with the new forum. In order to help me troubleshoot the problem, please take a moment to complete the poll.

It seems to vary. Some days are OK while others are a bit slow.

It seems that the more people are on then the slower it gets. And it is slower in the evening than in the day time. I am surprised at any slowdown at all because I am on a Fiber Optic Cable system.

This is the only site that slows down for me. Others do not.

Hook,

I access the site at work though a DS3 fiber line -- incredibly huge bandwidth.

My conclusion is you have NO PROBLEMS on your end. It's blindingly/blazingly fast from here.

Fast at work....

Firefox browser on XP
Shared Business DSL
1.7GHz Celeron w/1 GB RAM

Just as fast at home.....

IE 6 browser on XP
Verizon 3Mb DSL
2.8GHz Celeron w/ 1 GB RAM


Slower in the evening at home, at peak usage times. That's to be expected.

No complaints or problems.

I haven't had any problems with the new forum on either of my Vista laptop (wireless), XP box (ethernet) or Mac at work (ethernet).

Same here,

Some days are brutally slow, others, only annoyingly slow.
No problems with any other sites I go to.

If you are having problems loading the forum in your browser, the first thing you should do is delete all your temporary internet files, all offline content, and clear your cache. Close and re-open your browser then see if the problem persists. If it's still too slow, go buy a better PC!

Like my PM said it was dead slow last night.

That is why I asked about how to take rubbish off my laptop in case that is where the fault lie.

Today back to normal.

It loads like any other page for me. Don't notice any lag time. I have cable with a 64 bit system xp pro. 1 gig memory. So I voted it average.

It loads just fine for me for the most part. The pictures can take a while sometimes and sometimes it takes a few extra seconds here and there when the fishin is slow and were all on here but hell coming from home where it takes about a min per page to load any site its mighty fine!

Same here. I don't have any problems with other sites. The longest delays tend to be after I post a reply, or when trying to load certain posts. The main board loads pretty well most of the time.

Back to go slow again.

After posting and it says that it is posted then it is quicker to log off and then back on again as it can take upto a minute before I see the post.

Yep, that's what I have to do after nearly every reply. It's quicker to close the window and re-enter the website than to wait for the reply to show up on it's own.
