    Is anyone else having a problem? I've tried IE & Chrome & both are just crawling along. I go to other sites & all is well.

    Al, the forum has been very slooooooooow for me for quite some time. I love this forum, but the lack of speed is very irritating. Makes it hard to get through very many posts so I know I'm missing a lot. I often just say "Aw, the hell with it.", and give up. Don't have this problem with any of the other forums I check out. I don't know the cause, but I wish it would be addressed and fixed sometime soon. [​IMG]

    I use chrome myself...and it does seem a tad slow.....the Internet gremlins must be sneaking around  [​IMG]
     
  4.  Al, it's always slow for me ( I have "dial-up"). I gets so bad sometimes I just cant post.

    Never saw it this slow----since I got on at about 6:30 AM. Using "iMac/Safari"-----All other sites are super fast for me too.

    Thanks for confirming that Bear!

    I just rebooted my computer & reset the modem & router just to make sure.

    I was beginning to think it was just me!

    I sure hope that this is just temporary, it's very frustrating.

    I have the fastest DSL connection available & can flip through pages like changing channels on TV, all the other sites I go to are

    lightning fast, except here today.

    A rock moves faster than the forum is today. Actually I always have problems trying to sign in. I have to check the site numerous times during the day until I can finally post. Its really frustrating when you want to comment on a post and when I finally can the subject is hours or days old. Sometimes I can log in and I'll type out a new thread and post pictures or comment on someone else's post and hit submit and it never goes through, talk about PITA.
    I didn't even know dial up was still available. [​IMG]    [​IMG]     Jeez, it just took forever to load the smilies. Maybe I am on dial-up and don't even know it. I guess I am out for awhile, I'll check back later.

    Slow here too. Firefox on a Macbook Pro with a fast cable connection. This forum is usually slightly slower than the norm, but not anything terrible.
    Also, I've been unable to access it on my smartphone via Tapatalk for several days. Hope everything's ok, not sure how I'd get thru my day without my daily dose of Q-view. :drool

    Anybody have any ideas why Tapatalk isn't working? The app itself seems fine, and I'm able to access other forums, just not this one.
