Pages have been loading fine for me. The only time in recent weeks that I have seen any slow loading is on pages that contain a lot of YT videos.........and this seems to be a YT issue. I go to YT and get a very slow loading of videos (but this does not happen often)
It could be your browser. I use IOS on an iPad. My desk top uses IE and I have ZERO problems on the Desktop.
However, I do get issues of slow loading pages when I try to browse the forum without logging in. I am assuming that is due to all the advertising.....
I did click on several threads and posts, just to see how the pages loaded. They load very fast on that site.....HOWEVER......that site does not contain all the links, images, and videos we have here. This definitely makes a difference. I also noticed they don't have all the advertisements we have here. I am assuming that site has Google Adsense.......CRF uses something different. The advertising service can be a huge hog of ram.
Just an FYI, CRF does it's forum maintenance cycle in the middle of the night, and this can make pages load like a turtle.......sometimes it can even "time out" your browser.
