    Forums slow to open

    I had a question about what seems to be an ongoing issue when opening forums.

    With all of the fancy adds and new toolbar etc, it seems like it takes a long time for a thread to open. Much longer than in the past.

    I realize that in order for CF to be the best site out there advertisements are required, its just part of the business.

    I find myself not reading post because everytime you open another page it takes 5-10 seconds for everything to load, its just frustrating.

    Are there others that find this happening to them as well? BTW I typically access at work (i know I should be doing something else :)) and the connection speed here is as fast as it gets so that is not the issue.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”

    Re: Forums slow to open

    Forums are extremely slow for me today. Having to click a link two or three times to get a thread to open or having to hit stop and then refresh button. Advertisements do not seem to be slowing things down for me, but something is.
