Why does this forum take so long to open a page

I can go anywhere else, and to any other forum and the pages will load more or less instantly, but MHF is now taking minutes to open a page from a email link, I tried to open two threads from links last night, I opened my laptop about 10 minutes ago and they still hadn't loaded when I started to write this post.

I know that some VS staff do cafe but as a company I am confident they are just winding it down.

Also if following a thread, I'll click the next page number, it will open the page, but then hang at the first post, with the indicator going round and round, so I'll get bored waiting and go to another page which may or may not open properly.

As I write this I'm waiting for the Ducato heater thread to open page three, hence this post, it is still opening.

There are only 23 posts in the thread, I can read post #21 , and the header of #22 , but I can't scroll down as the blasted thing is still loading.

Been waiting since 08:13, now 08:21 this is a joke forum.

So far working fine in terms of load speed on a site wifi using Safari on iPad Kev.

Agree there's an issue with numbering and posting delays.

No problems here in Glorious Dorset, fast and furious.

My only problem is the Pop Up window asking me to agree with their advertising policy. I get this every time I open up.

Odd, I don't see how it can be a problem at my end though, everything else is working at normal speed IE fast as hell.

Speed check done just now. as you can see, I have an outstandingly fast connection with Virgin.

@Drew, yes I am getting that sill add thing now and then, but not every time.

Seems ok at the moment but I agree with Kev, this site is not healthy. Dont forget you can email VS who generally respond pretty quickly if the site is down or experiencing problems at sitedown@verticalscope.com

Ive had to email them regularly when threads go out of sync with the last pages not being displayed. Ive been quizzing them about a permanent fix for this for a while.

I hope your wrong Kev about them winding this site down but it certainly needs attention.
