    I usually have to reopen a new page after a certain amount of time, but the problem I am seeing is the printing of what I am typing slowing down. I can type a paragraph and then sit back as it slowly prints out on the screen.

    Do you have nay kind of a security system you might be able to go into and check for viruses?

    Another thing that might be happening is that you are leaving your computer on too long. Periodically I have to shut it down when things start to get slow, and after doing that things get back to normal. Maybe shutting it down and restarting might help?


    God bless.

    I have to admit I'm experiencing no problems at all with the site, but maybe I'm just one of the lucky ones?

    I'm also a fairly new member so I'm not sure what the site was like before the change over.

    I'm not getting any delays. The website might be a tad bit slower on some functions, but faster on others.

    On my computer when I try to scroll down to see the posts of the bottom of a page, the page keeps jumping back to the top of the page. After 3-4 times it works itself out.

    However, I don't have that same issue on Tapatalk.

    Not only am I experiencing slow loading times, but I have had trouble typing into the forums. As I type, my words will lag and sometimes freeze. There have been a few threads that I've wanted to post on, but sadly my whole browser would freeze by the time I finished typing.

    That is because the page has not finished loading yet. I get the same thing. I do not experience this on any other site I visit.

    I'm not experiencing any delays with the site, and I'm a new member as well. As suggested before, you might want to try restarting your computer, and allowing a few seconds for the pages to fully load. You may also want to try checking if you have the latest Windows updates.

    It takes a few seconds to load on my laptop but not on my PC. The laptop is running windows 8 and the PC is running Windows 7. It loads quick on my tablet and phone to.
