Reloads are awfully slowwwwwww

    Reloads, as in page refreshes. Well, this thread isn't what you might expect.

    I can't help but notice that for several weeks now, GT's website pages seem to be reloading slower and slower. This is not limited to any one computer, but occurs on several different computers that I use at differing locations. I don't know if it's the random advertisement placements, new slower servers, or what.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Is there any way to let the owners know that possible recent modifications to the site are negatively effecting the user base?

    Hell, I thought it was my laptop giving me trouble. Thing is it happens on other sites too so, in my case, it probably is my device. About two weeks ago I downloaded an "upgrade". I'll have to get the eldest to see what's up. It is a good thing that he's pretty good with these things. All I know about them is that if you don't have power, you are screwed.

    Not slow for me... It's slower then it was 3 months ago, but not really enough fo rme to complain. They load in about 1-2.5 seconds depending if there are pictures in the thread.

    What browser are you using on the computers? I am using Chrome and or Opera.

    Not slow for me either. GT is the fastest forum I belong to. XDtalk is painfully slow. But GT is very fast on both my PC's and my iPad.

    I've got four computers scattered around the house, (1 Mac, 3 PC's) and on each of GT is by far the slowest to refresh pages. At times it seems to just freeze up then after a little while take off.

    I'm running 5 megs internet speed, (fastest we can get up here) so I don't think that's the problem.

    It's that damn new black ticker on the top of the page. I have just had a super duper PC just made last week and this site now loads at turtle speed by far.

    It's definately worse than it used to be. On our old laptop, it just about freezes half the time. On our faster machines, it's faster, but it definately drags. I never used to have a problem with GTalk. Also, half the adds on the margins don't even open, they are either blank or have some kind of error message in the window.

    As for the other guys thinking it was their machine because other pages were opening slowly, I think Gtalk is slowing everything else down too. When I have Gtalk open, and it's really slow, it slows down everything else. When I close GTalk, the other stuff speeds right up.

    If we want to have a GT forum Eric has to have a way to make a profit. (The percentage of paid subscriptions really is pretty low, especially for as much time as some of us spend on here.)

    I'd rather put up with a little slow speed than not have GT... otherwise I'll have to go back to kicking cans down the road. :crying:

    Geez I've been in IT for 25 years and I thought there was something wrong with my home computer. Glad to see it's not just me.

    I thought this thread was about reloaded ammo that wasn't hitting velocity expectations.

  14. This ain't nothing. You want to see slow, try visiting Arfcom.

    Maybe it's time to give up Netscape 1.0

    I'm glad to know it isn't just me. My work computer c-r-a-w-l-s when GT is open. At home it's better, but still THE slowest forum of the five I use the most. Maybe Eric will take note and make some improvements? I know he needs to offset expenses, but other boards are able to maintain good speed and stay in business.

    Like the rest of you, I like hanging here and don't want to see this place disappear.

    I don't see it here. I am running 3.0 internet and an old 5500 dual core computer.
    Jack the internet hard drive back capital is about 35 miles from you so there is always tuns of info flowing through there, But your not that far from the main trunk so you should have great through put.

    Best advice is to take your complaint directly to the admin if it's bugging you.
