Hate to bring this up again, but is anyone else finding GG slow to load this weather? I've been experiencing speed problems for a couple of weeks now.
I've tweaked firefox to the hilt and still find the boards slow. Other sites are A OK.

Cheers,
cash.

It could be that PCs are being slowed up because too many applications are being run in the background.These come on when you start up your PC and definately slow it down.In Windows XP and Vista it is possible to delete Temporary Internet files which will a lso slow down the PC.
Hope this helps.

Thanks all, I've notices this also and have been in contact with our hosts to see if they can help, though I'll also need to get the toolkit out over the weekend and see if I can fix it ... will let you know.

Apologies for the inconvenience. mellow.gif

One point I failed to mention is... when waiting for GG to load, a message can be seen in the lower left corner of the page stating "Waiting For GGDB To Load" which is normal. However, since GG has become slower the message also now includes "Waiting on Google". This possibly may have a bearing on the problem.
Plus of course there's a fair old amount of graphics in the site which, at times, can slowdown loading.

Good point Joop, everyone should delete these files. I delete them once a week, at the minimum.

Aye, things can get very slow at times but ah don't think it's anythin tae dae wi peoples' PCs - the GG board seems tae be the only wan affected, at least in ma experience. Ah've even logged off a few times rather than sit through the interminable wait when ah want tae post.

Hi All,

Just to let you know that I am still working on this situation to improve the sped of the boards. I apologise to everyone, however, I am sure it will be resolved and we will have a speedy system again fairly soon. That said, I intend to be working on it this week, so there may be sime disruption in the meantime. Please stick in there.

GG.
