Default Takes several minutes to load a page due to ads

Does the person who puts all the ads on this site test it with a slow 3G connection? It takes several minutes to load a page. I've even got some of these ad server names memorized.

ad.yieldmanager.com and my fav adnxs (ad in excess?)

Maybe raise the price of the ads and have less of them so the site is still usable. I rarely come here anymore.

Hmm... I just used my 3G (iphone4) to view a Thor review here, and it took a while for the ENTIRE page to load, but the review content/site links, etc. loaded immediately.

Sometimes when I find the site slower than usual (like today for example), I simply log out and log in again, but this time I click harder the keys of my keyboard.

Seems to do the trick! ...Not 100% but perhaps 80%.

Hope that helps.

P.S. Would also be very nice that the administration clean their PM boxes so we can communicate important info. :smile:
...Because after all, we're all in here to work together, right? ...And for the benefit of all members, right?
Just sayin'.

You can always PM me or one of the other mods if you have a specific question issue as it relates to the forums. If we can't answer the question, we will try to get you in touch with the person that can.

The main 'admin' mailbox I believe is not a mailbox which is monitored and is just a 'catch all' type of account.

Mine is pretty top notch on chrome. I was experiencing somewhat sporadic "hitching" where the page would stop+jolt on firefox if I was scrolling through an already-loaded page, so I switched and it's not an issue now. That might have been an issue on my side though, and it's not related to page loading.

You can make any website mobile-friendly by going here:
http://www.google.com/gwt/n

If that is overkill, I'd try the Opera browser if your device supports it. On my iPhone it is much, much faster because images are compressed by an Opera proxy server before sending to your 3G device.

Lastly, IIRC, you can turn off Signatures, Images, and Avatars in your user control panel.

In september the pageload time from my laptop with a slow internet connection was very poor. Sometimes I have problems to see anything on this domain.
