    Why is this forum so slow?

    I have noticed the response time of this forum has really slowed down in recent weeks/months, whereby the wait for a page refresh/open is many, many seconds.

    I use Alt1tude on several devices (a couple of laptops, iPad, iPhone) and it is slow on all of them - especially compared to other forums I use on a regular basis.

    Rich, it's been noticed - Tapatalk on my iPhone takes many seconds to load (and sometimes doesn't load at all!) It seems to work as usual on my Mac though, using both Safari and Chrome.

    Happy New Year.

    It's been slow for me for ages, however I just assumed it was due to the previous problems I had getting on the site.

    Happy New Year all!

    I have a Bulletin Forum and its way quicker than this. It's all down to the server where it is hosted, I am guessing this ones hit the capacity of the host. Maybe worth paying for more capacity.
    Own at present:
    Endurance LE - Wright Flyer LE - 1918 LE WG - Michael Wong LE - Boeing 100 LE - Boeing 747 (Military) - 216 Sqn x 2 (Mlitary) - ALT1-B - Kingsman SS - Omega Apollo 17.

    I still find the Forum very slow and sometimes unusable. I want to add my contribution to a thread but it takes forever to load. Can this be looked into guys? Or maybe move servers.

    Now that you mention it, it does take some time to load.

    Thanks both - we'll get in contact with the server people today and see what can be done. Sorry about this, hope it doesn't put you two off using the forum.

    Any feedback Jake? I just cannot use it when overseas. Admittedly, it maybe the access in the particular countries, but as I recall, the UK is just as bad.
