Hi. I promise it's nothing to do with people's O/S, cpu speed, browser, memory, or connection speed. There is a script running on the site which is causing either everyone or nearly everyone who uses this subforum to experience really slow loading speeds and stuttery page scrolling.Please provide the following info to help with a diagnosis. Many problems are related to Internet performance and client side issues.
Operating System on your computer
CPU type and speed
Browser Type and Version
Amount of RAM in your computer
Please run this speed test and let us know the result:

Aha! Let my check on my ipad2 as well, as loading times on it were even worse then on the laptop... Well darn it...on the ipad2 still slow as hell. Both Safari and iCab. Safari doesn't even load the page...it times out. I removed all history/cache in Safari and iCab before testing. Speed within FF on laptop is indeed now very fast.I'm running f17 primarily on an ipad2 on wifi. Whatever was done, if anything, in the past day, the load time went from about 30 seconds to about 5. The others, like f96 is instant. Getting there. Mike
I have never known this site to be fast or smooth ever lol .... And somedays I dread getting on here due to it being soooo slow and slugish, don't get me wrong I love this site and it's members but dang is it ever slow. I browse 9 other sites and they are FAST!This is by far the slowest site I browse. Doesn't keep me from looking but it would be nice for it to be fixed. I will try the Firefox plugin.
You're very welcome, but keep in mind that this is only a workaround rather than a fix. For the purposes of browsing it will work a treat ...the forum will zip along fast as can be, however when it comes to making a post you'll have to select 'temporarily allow watchuseek.com' in order to be able to quote people, use line breaks, insert images, etc. Once you've made your post you'll then have to select 'revoke temporary permissions' to have the forum go back to loading fast again.special thanks to the Gent with firefox and no-script add-on, I was using Opera for this forum, and everything related to Gshock, I am now moving the entire operation to Firefox
I've asked friends in Poland, UK, and USA to check this subforum and they ALL experience conspicuous sluggishness, even with top notch hardware. It's definitely a problem with the site and not with your setup.Glad to hear that I'm not the only one. I emailed Sjors and Ernie last weekend about this. Ernie said that no one else was having the same problem.
The G-Shock forum loads for me (from the main forum page) in 11 seconds. We have plenty of evidence that the browser version and the amount of RAM in a PC does affect the speed of load. We connect from all over the world so there will be effects from that as well. I am not saying we can't improve on the server side but if you are using an obsolete browser with old Flash that will slow you down for sure.Do you not experience this yourself Ray?
