    Well, it sure is for me. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    So damn slow, I clicked on a thread, got up, shaved, took a crap, showered and came back to find the thread still had not popped up yet. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Wes,

    It has been slow for us also for at least 2 days now. We blamed it on our internet provider at first but everything else was loading fine. So I dunno....

    No it's not, cosidering I was explaining how long it takes me to do all the above.....about 30 minutes. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    30 minutes to get a thread to pop up. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/frown.gif That's ridiculous! /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    ... just razzin' ya, man! Of course, stating that "... it took 30 min. to open a thread" would
    have sufficed. /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I'm on cable and yes, it does seem slow. Some days more than others. Other sites that I visit are much faster so I just think CK5 has a slow server.

    Sorry, not trying to step on toes but it does seem to have more lag time. Could be location or something I suppose? I will admit that server knowledge is not my thing. I host at a nice place and am happy there, so I leave that whole end of it to them. What else could it be that would make this site slower than others I go to? It's not the site design, I know that. I love the design.

    Babble babble,

    The traffic on this board is really killing the speed, we do have a Dedicated Duel Pentium server with 2 gig of RAM, more than enough but theres only so much hardware we can afford, that's why a lot of communites like this go belly up, the average viewer thinks that server costs are free or something. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif I would say the number one thing is the forums that really make the site slow, tons of people hitting refresh every few sec really tax the database, 2 AM this place is Blazin fast. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
