    ...has become awfully slow for me. Opening post can take up to a minute, even if there are no pictures in the post. It takes forever to load a gazillion little GIF files and whatnot. This has gotten to the point that I rather look at other forums rather than waiting for a page to open. I don't encounter this problem on other sites/forums that I visit regularly.

    BTW, I'm on cable... any ideas why it's become so slow?

    There has been some issues with the forum version 3.5.2 as far as speed, I know 3.5.3 just came out but not sure if they fixed that problem or not. With a site this big, there is always going to be issues of some kind.

    Welp, it looks like we have a bad hard drive, our database has been slow and crashing over the last week or so also that was assosiated, we will move to a new hd soon, there wil be a little down time when this happens.

    That is good, bad information. I just had my computer worked on, when I go it back Ck5 was and is still slow for me. I thought maybe it was my computer or the DSL server. Hope this gets ironed out, speed up.

    Just upgraded the server from 2 GB of ram to 4 GB of ram, let me know if it is still slow for you.
    January saw an increase of over 2 million page views from Dec, being we were on the edge of the limits that extra 2 million page views kind of pushed us over at peak periods, we should be good now.
