What browser are you using?

slowness is either the server being slow, javascript being slow (usually browser dependent) or flash (if the ads are flash) and Flash is a system HOG...

It has a bit a bit slow the last few days.

I've tested this site on four browsers when I first joined because I noticed the slowness...Firefox was the fastest, followed closely by Opera. Safari and IE were the slowest (Safari was a little faster than IE). It also seems to change depending on the day...some days it's slow and some days it's fast...never slow enough to bother me though so meh

Yes, the last few days have been 2-3 times longer than normal. Slightly irritating.

I'm not having any trouble with Firefox. I'll have to try it with IE & Chrome.

I am having trouble with Firefox, im gonna try running it sans scripts and see what happens.

Edit: No noticeable difference using Noscript to block everything except rx8club.com. Also unable to ping rx8club.com so any kind of data test is out of the question. Nonetheless it is noticeably slower.

ditto to all of the above. uploading sometimes takes forever seem to hang.

Safari 3.11 slow on a day by day basis, good one day next almost at a standstill. Had 4.01 (slow always) till mac died then back to 3.11, Firefox slow also. EI for the mac never use but installed for the wif, just crawls.

Sorry, forget I posted this....... everything is wonderful. Last time I posted in suggestions my post #'s got returned to zero for my effect.

The server(s) suck(s). Sometimes the forums don't even load for me, or stop loading halfway. It's really lame.

It's been rather slow for up to a week now!
More than slightly irritating!
Other sites and forums are okay........

safari is ***.....It's SLOW.....

I write web apps for a living and Safari is always by far the slowest POS browser there is..... It can barely figure out javascript in a timely manner. Forget Ajax, takes forever.

//end safari rant
