Why is gixxer.com sooo damn slow?

I am on T8 LAN connectivity and download at ~65Mbps. However, it literally takes about 30 seconds for a single link to thread, subforum, etc to load. It really frustrates me when I am trying to read or do something on the website; especially when I can view 3 or 4 threads on another forum before one loads here. The same problem occurs on other internet connections as well.

It seems like the scrips for the ads and affiliate images really decrease the speed of loading links dramatically. Is there not a way the web admin can write the index using an iframe so the sidebar doesn't load every single time a link is clicked? There has to be a problem with the coding or ad scripts I am seeing for pages to take so long to load. I don't feel like becoming a Premium member should be the way out on the issue.

Download addblock plus and you wont have issues anymore. The adds take forever to load, slowing the whole site down.

I was on the verge of finding a new forum to hang out

You should be telling people to get there red R and remove the ads that way, so at least they support the site.

They also get access to the classifieds, as well as the sexy section.

We should not have to download 3rd party apps to side step the ads on this site.


If the powers that be would just use permissions based ad plugin for VB like this one - Ad Management Plugin it would make browsing much more enjoyable. Kind of pissed off that my money was spent on a "supporting member" status for porn in the members section and no removal of ads.

We're really pissed about it. All the ad stuff is done at cooperate level, us staff have nothing to do with it except we try to fight it. We're all unpaid, BTW, we never see any of that sweet sweet ad money...

Verticalscope pays me quite a bit to be the resident artist & for my witty banter. All that dough has to come from somewhere!
