    ....or is it just me. For the past week or so, it seems to take much longer to change pages. I'm not blaming it on the green links, cuz I think it started just before that. Other sites I go to seem to work fine, but I like this one AND ITS DRIVING ME NUTS!

    Same here, an obvious slowdown especially between pages.

    I'd have to agree. I got DSL and it is taking a little longer then usual to load the pages. tried cleaning my system, didn't help. Figured it was just something with out of my control.

    It isn't a major thing, but I can notice it enough, when I am here. Other sites I frequent seem to be loading ok.

    For me it started right after the green links were added. I'm on cable and with a Mac so everything runs smoothly. Except for this site.

    Its the green linky things... although you could configure your router to block that stuff... nahhh.. don't do that.

    "don't do that."

    Is that a good idea?

    To me this delay is (seems) huge. It takes a lot of time to read thru the posts, and to add the delay every time you switch pages is just too much.
    I mean, it's probably less than 10 seconds, but that adds up. Any other site changes page in less than 1 second.

    That's it, we can't wait 2 weeks for them to "optimize" their software... The green text ads are gone.

    I think that's got to be the problem but if this site continues to be slow please let me know.

    I think it was before the green text got here too.

    For what it's worth, pages seem to be loaded faster now.

    not google analytics, which is the normal culprit in slower forum transfer times?
