I may have a go at that, Candubrain! I'll see if I can copy (rather than move) all of the 'What's the best oil" threads into one as a trial.

Thanks!

Was the font "Home" "Forums" "Active Topics" etc changed or am I seeing things again?

It's a nice font btw.

Often this forum (klrforum.com) loads VERY slow. Literally 15-20+ seconds sometimes to load “Active Topics”. Sometimes loading will seem to stall completely so I have to refresh the page or hit Active Topics again.
This is nothing new, been like this since I signed up a couple years ago. I have messaged Tom and he agrees it’s slow.
I even paid subscription thinking maybe not paying had something to do with it. Nope, so I dont pay anymore. Maybe I would subscribe again if the forum loaded faster and more reliably.

So Admin, what can you do to speed this place up??

FWIW, "active topics" is where I go most often, I just tried loading the page 3 times and it took about 1 second each time...which seems typical for me. Any problems elsewhere?

It seems like the adverts have something to do with the slowness. I’ll find the first few times I load Active Topics in any given day, the page can be painstakingly slow, but then after that the pages load within a second or 2. When I return later in the day, this behavior seems to repeat.
Maybe the adverts “refresh” after a period??

I don’t know....it’s just irritating is all.

When this computer was using Windows & Google it had the same slow loading & adverts.

My friend Mike switched it over to Linex & Firefox, its a lot quicker and very few adverts anywheres. It is connected to Spectrum high speed cable system.
