I am having a problem lately getting a timely response from this site.
The other inferior sites download quickly, but BW takes its sweet time, often 15 to 20 sec to respond. Takes some of the enjoyment away.
Am I the only one?

Hey! Back off on the criticisms there, buckos. Admin has been far too busy chasing away moderators, longtime fora sponsors and selling premium memberships to worry about your persnickety little gripes concerning page lag. Hell, where else can you get intellitext popups that load faster than the fargin page itself? Geeeez.

I am still seeing slow. It has to do with the ad servers, I think. Watch what it is waiting for on the progress line as it loads. Those are external to the site.

Last night all I could get to load was the top banner, nothing else. Today it is alittle better.

Last two days have been downright hellishly slow. That, and my cheapskate High Speed Slow Lite internet package have had me talking to the wife for distraction.


It seems to be better now.

Firefox and Adblock Plus are your friends. It ain't the site that's slow...it's gotta be the advertising.

Yes I have noticed it is very slow. I thought it was from all those pictures in the thread "OT: Babes I Like".

Along with those two, I keep BW set on version 1. Look at the little box at the bottom left. No ads at all. I am experiencing somewhat slower loads but I just bop over to P3 to see if anybody has posted in the 107 forum there.

Tricky, tricky that does work a lot better. Thanks
