Hi all
Is everyone else having the same problem as me with this website running very very slow (ie like i am on an old dial up connection).
Its not my actual broadband connection as i can open about 10 other pages in the time it takes to looad one on here (nd i've done some speed tests.
Are there new adverts that take longer to load?
I am on a mac using safari, could it be that? as its a shame as this is a great forum but its almost to painfull to be on at the moment.
I timed how long in took just to load the fiesta forum main page, it took 43 seconds......something must be wrong, is it just me?

Have something to contribute?

Have to say it was fine earlier but now since 7 its slowed up a bit.

I thought it may be heavy line usage

Has anyone noticed that the site also shows new posts (from yesterday)in the forum listing, but when you click to read the thread the posts are from days ago and not new?!

That might be due to a poll, If someone votes but doesn't comment the whole thread still gets bumped.

I've also noticed that the full site has been running pretty slow. It's odd as the mobile site on my phone is faster than it was before.

I noticed it was running very slow last night. Would load anything fine but the forums.

Tonight is also running a little slow but nothing like last night.

i'm confused. I probably have one of the slowest broadband speeds around ( 0.5mbps ) and yet the site has been no slower at all!
