Anyone else having slower times getting the pages to come up?...It seems like the Ron Ayers thing takes forever to fullly load before the page comes up...I have had NO problems since the reboot with SBN, but now it seems a little slow...

Anyone else?

It is not, "slower". It is the way the banners loads.

It is loading the banners, one by one. As each banner loads, it does its anamation thing before going to the next banner. So now everytime we load a page, any page, it loads banners first, then the page.

It is getting rather annoying. However, they give $$ to the site and the site needs $$ to keep going. Maybe kill the anamation, or make the loading process different? AAAHHH ITS KILLING ME TOO!

Fred, could ya tweak it some???

I guess I'm not seeing the banners. I have noticed a slight decrease in performance, regardless, however.

its not the site accually.. its the banners loading.. Thats the slow down you are seeing.. I will be working on other things for the banners to be a bit faster.. sorry but I had to add banners to pay the bills that keep coming in.

Fred can't you somehow make it so the banners load after the text loads? Or at least all at the same time? I'm no web guru, so I don't really know how that works, it's a little faster now, but still dog slow.

The server is incredibly slow today. Even uploading small images as attachments in posts takes forever. The server response time is terrible. Slowness in uploading images would not be a result of the banners.

Not to complain.....because I LOVE this site, but the banner ads are killin' me. Must they appear upon loading every page? I can understand at the beginning of each topic forum, but why every page?

I have a cable modem and the banner ads still load slowly. Very aggrivating.

Thanks,
Stone

Ok.. I decided to do something about this before I went to bed.. becuase today I noticed it a lot.. each time it tried to load a banner in the rotation it was just sooooooo slow..

I have made it so the banner rotation is now only in one spot on the page.. the 3 other advertisers (Major Sponcers to SBN) Have 3 static banners which your cache (browser software) should read one time and leave it in your history.. this way it loads very fast.. not you will just wait for 1 area to load the rotating banner
