    Painful slowness

    It seems like the site is getting slower with time. A year ago I didn't notice any issue. Now, I'm to the point that I regret trying to browse the forums. Every click produces a wait.

    Same on several different devices -- laptops, ipad, phone. The other forum sites I visit do not have this issue; they pop right up with no lag. I've used tapatalk, which seems to work more quickly, but I'm not so much a fan of that format for browsing MTBR.

    I hope it's something that can be worked out, because as is, my browsing here is going to be severely curtailed.

    Best regards, greg...

    Can you tell me what browser and OS you are using?

    Is it constant or intermittent?

    Hi, g,

    Phone: Safari/iOS 7.1.2
    Ipad: Safari/?
    MacBook Pro: Firefox/OSX 10.9.5
    MacBook Air: Firefox/OSX 10.9.4

    Consistently slow.

    The MB Air seems to have a bit less an issue with speed. Alas, that's the wife's lappy...

    Wow, two years of complaints and someone is finally appearing to look into it.

    Must be on your end. I browse at work, on my andriod phone and tablet, and my home laptop. No slowness, been the same speed for the last 5 years I've been using mtbr.

    I have the same issue on my Ipad at home. Every other forum loads fine but this site. I was hoping it would get better after moving to IOS8 but nothing changed. It is really, really slow.

    It took me about 30 mins. of waiting to get to this point, where I can tell you that... today's problem is -


    is a bad link or spam or something... but it's a problem, when trying to open any page on this site (today). It shows up in my Activity window as a "bad gateway" and seems to be causing the painful slowness today.
