Improve load times

Hi guys,

This forum has tonnes of great info and people, and I love lurking and reading here.. but.. the load times are shocking for me. Even to navigate to the next page of a thread takes a good 10 seconds.

Its not my connection speed. I'm in Australia, so anything that is hosted in the US or UK tends to lag; however I find this forum to lag to a much greater extent.

I absolutely love Gixxers, and motorbikes in general, as much as I love being here, I am turning to other forums more frequently as I am not reminded of how the interwebs used to be like back in dialup days.

Just my though on making the site more awesome from down under

edit.. just clicking on preview took a solid 18 seconds!.. 5 second mark, ads start to load.. 10 second mark, ads still loading.. 15 second mark, ads loaded nothing else happening... 18 seconds, tada everything loaded. Seriously, no other site I visit does this, unless its super congested or under maintenance

Re: Improve load times

If you are using firefox get adblocker+, it does load slow for me without it.

Re: Improve load times

I get the slow load times too Arch and I am in Melbourne. I expect it is all the ads loading and once I paid a subscription the ads will go away and load time will be better. I use other bike forums hosted in the UK and US too and this one is by far the slowest by a long shot.
