Is it just me, or.....

Is this site really slow? My computer is slow loading just this site, and it's horrible on my tablet.
Is it just me?

Not just you. There is a CRAP LOAD of bloatware, ads, more ads, and even more ads that load on this site. Its one of the slowest websites I visit, even on a custom built $5000 computer.

Ive actually been impressed with the speed on Tapatalk. No ads, just the info you want, plenty fast for general use of the forum.

For sure tho, posting an off topic ambiguous titled thread is guaranteed to speed it up.

If you go to the main page of this forum and then go to the Community Forums and then click on WF Site Help & support you'll find a thread titled "Site loads ultra slow". Open that thread and you'll find what the administrators are doing to correct the problem.
It's actually better now than a couple months ago.
This is a huge forum across several platforms. Look at all the separate forums and they have to interact with phones, tablets, desktops and whatever else.
Plus, keep out malware and hackers.

There's a lot going on with mostly volunteer help.
From time to time we should all remember to thank the moderators. They're all unpaid volunteers.

Thanks, guys and girls. Without you, this forum would be a slam fest with more trolls than bridges.

Good Luck, L.M.

Chrome runs too slow for me here,and most forums.

I use Firefox and it works the best for me.

The adminietrators did something to make the site run smoother & faster.
Now, when I click on the "likes" tab of the private messages the next screen is my home page. Then I click on the number of likes I've received it takes me to the "likes" page.

Not a big issue, just one more step.

Good Luck, L.M.

I just found the same thing. I have also been unable to log in for nearly a week now, sent two requests for assistance and received NONE. Just for fun I tried resetting my password, and that worked.
I'm thinking seriously about leaving this site. I like the folks and discussions here, but I'm not entirely certain it's worth the frustration.
BTW, I do show 1 notification, but when I hit it, I go to my own fricking profile page. Perhaps the administrators here know about the voices in my head - the ones who have been liking my posts?

The administrators and moderators are doing what they can to make our forum experience better. Many of the administrators and all the moderators are unpaid volunteers that are faced with a daunting task to update this complex site.

Just scroll down from the main page for all the sub-forums and then check out the sub-sub-forums. And, everything has to be programmed to work and work well together.
Plus, keep the trolls and viruses from affecting our devices.

Give them a break and once everything is squared away we'll all be happier.

Good Luck, L.M.
