    is there any way we could get a "lite" option for the forum? i often access the forum from work or from areas with either old computors or poor internet. the pictures and ads on the forum make it a VERY slow and difficult process of checking posts or my inbox.

    thanks

    I think what you are asking for is mobile optimization ... it is really cool and not too hard ... but kicks up the costs and maintenance SIGNIFICANTLY!

    Sit back, grab a beer and dream while watching it load.

    I have found that if you can get members to resize their photos before posting them that it helps immensely. But that also isn't going to happen so we just have to live with it. I have the same problem when a photo takes 30 seconds to download when if they had it resized it would take less than a second.

    what kills me the most is the ads, they take about 20-30 seconds to load each time on my work computer. I can spend 5 minutes of a 10 minute break just loading adds.

    Easy solution. Start loading while you are still on the clock! :whistle:
