    Very slow loading all morning, just received a time out error, the BF host was shown as the problem. The rest of my tabs are loading fine so I don’t think it's any of my devices. Using safari on an ipad.

    Edit to add: loading faster/normal now, so the problem seems to be intermittent?

    At least 30 seconds for a page load. Too slow. Really not useable now. I spend more time waiting for pages to load than I do reading posts.

    it would be good to get some response from BF staff about what they are doing about this.

    I've noticed the slowness over the last few days, also. Saturday evening, moving or merging posts almost caused my machine to time out. Seems OK at them moment, though. 11:44 AM PST.

    Seems to be a variable issue depending on the time of day. Looking into it.

    It's not ad blockers or dialup speed or anything else like that, so please don't make unfounded accusations.

    34 second lags tonight at 9:30 Eastern. Even typing requires a slower pace. :confused: I know ADMIN is aware - just reporting the status from where I sit.

    Thanks for taking care of us @Spark. :thumbsup:

    Yes. At times it’s VERY slow. This all started after Ads started appearing for paid members. Although the ads are not appearing the frequent slowness persists. This is on iOS and I have very fast LTE data speed.

    I can't track it down, so I've escalated it to the hosting company
