i always assumed it was because many members were here at the same time, tryin’ to post….but i often find i have to wait ages to access the forums only to discover a couple of people viewing
sometimes it takes so long to access pages that my browser ‘times out’ , this leads to double posting, as you assume your post didn’t make it….hit the ‘save’ again only to find you are repeating yourself
You’re right, it’s still too slow. Every couple weeks we spend an afternoon working on the code, or hiring somebody to work on it, but the site keeps growing and for one obscure reason or another, it’s never as fast as I’d like it.
