I think it has to do with the raindrop animation in the banner, since that is there also for me it's slow, especially on mobile.

Sometimes our web hosting seems to slow down yes.

Also this platform and template isnt the fastest, if and when we get time we may develop something faster, ever since we used the template we have now, things slowed down a little.

We dont have uber expensive hosting by any means also, and were not on a cloud platform.

Could be a factor, but in theory once the image loads once ur browser should have it locally.. it is probably worse on phones.

I think the webhosting is a bit slower than usual right now too, its lagging. just have to ride it out.

I disabled the banner but it is still very slow. I think it needs new hosting.

It is terrible right now, youre probably right about the hosting being the only answer.

Myself and Frog just dont have the time right now to move the site, and we'd also have to make sure any change was an improvement and not worse.

For long periods of time the hosting has been quite decent and for now im hoping they sort it out so its workable again.

hi novum,
Hope you will have time soon. It is annoying to have to wait for the pages to load. You will have more visitors, more participants and generate more revenue if the site is faster. Let me know if you need help. Thanks.

Its a frustrating situation yes, no less for me than everyone else.

I will see what i can do, some improved hosting is in order as what we have now is too restrictive and while its been decent for many years, theyre slowing things down too much in the past six months or so all too often and it doesnt look like its going to get better again.

The forum is constipated by the shite of that Frothy Fungus, that's the only explanation, novum.
