Stop drinking caffeine.... :-D
Use and ad blocker. I see no adverts at all, I reckon by paying for Plus membership, I shouldn't have to put up with them. The pages load quite quickly although there is more delay since Google got involved, hopefully, all my protective progs tell them to sod off.a lot of it has to do with the profusion of ads now on this site. Particularly irritating are the ones that "frame" or even block out images. All of this dramatically slows down loads. I've gotten to the point where I think twice before opening a string which features members who are quite "image happy". Just takes too long to load while I also hit the little "x's" to close ad after ad. I should mention that my computer is also a dinosaur; perhaps those with the "latest and greatest" do not have these probs.
Certainly similar. I've disabled my ad-blocker on this site, and I implemented some advice I was given by another member of The Team, but neither made much - if any - difference.Does that sound like the problem you are having, Stuart?
Still the same for me.I say this with some trepidation, but it hasn't happened to me at all today.
Nothing changed my end, so I suspect something may have been fixed.
This ^^^ is pretty-much the same as I'm (still) getting.Not particularly slow but I still get random effects. Usually when looking at recent posts, it only draws the first couple. Try again and it shows them all but usually cuts off the bottom section where it gives you the choice of page so I have to go to the top to choose. Similarly, when I click on the last poster on a thread, it won't go to the post in question but cuts off on the 29th September. I then try again and it all shows.
I have said before that it is only this site and only since the change to Google. Every other place I visit behaves totally normally so I don't believe it's anything wrong with the way my system is set up just and curious interaction with this forum.
This is the case with every browser I try. I even downloaded a couple I hadn't tried before but the strangeness continues. It's something that I've got used to now but occasionally it makes my eyebrows pucker.
