Replying to a thread using fast reply takes about ten seconds.

Switching between pages takes about five seconds.

Going from thread view into advanced reply view takes about ten seconds.

Sometimes the site loads so slowly I give up and go do something else!

No issues on other sites, and I visit sites hosted all around the world. Can even stream videos from foreign soil without buffering.

Edit:

Just noticed my status bar gets stuck at "Waiting for eu.projectsunblock.com ..." - slow advert maybe?

Sounds like an issue on your end tbh.. do a tracert? Here's mine (modified the first few addresses).

The attempted derailers of this thread are annoying, I'm sure there are "fun" threads for you to go talk in.

Just a question, but does anyone use multiple tabs? I'm only asking because I don't really notice any slow down on Neowin, but at the same time I select a link that may interest me, then switch to another tab to do something else while the page loads. Same for posting, I will hit the "post" button and switch to another tab to do something else while it goes ahead with posting. So far any slow down I've noticed I've been able to figure out that it's been on my end, not on the site's end.

Happens on my side too

Naw man, this happens on my side too, though randomly, it happens at my work connection (8Mb doown / 2up) and at home which is 10mbit down... It does happen randomly in the sense that it's not all the time, but lately, posting/replying is so annoying that it just deters me from doing so.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but this is really killing the forums, read around, there are several people complaining about the same issue, so it's obviously not on "our end", based on very different scenarios.

Did you see my edit? Nearly every time I load a thread it waits for that same site.

Staff bar? I see this too when "saving post" or saving edit... it takes so long I just close the window even IF the post didn't go through, it's that annoying (having to wait more than 2-3 seconds, let alone more than 10).

Slow for some and not for others couldn't be down to which theme is being used could it ?

This could be placebo, but I just switched to Pegasus and it seems a lot faster. Was previously using Darkside.

Posting is pretty slow still, but navigation seems quicker.

Nope, def not placebo, darkside theme is not supported and is based off an old "bloated" version of the skin.

I just had a hang on page loading and FF said it was waiting for 'secure.gravatar' or something close to that url incase that helps

secure.gravatar is avatar images (you make an account and use it with any compatible site and it'll use the picture on the profile for it). Secure implies you're on neowin via https :s.

Also gravatar shouldn't slow it down.

It was just what FF said it was waiting for while the loading circle was stuck spinning, once it stopped saying it was waiting for that url the loading circle stopped and the page finished loading

Just posting what I find to help the mystery :)
