What is it with the PCA site?

The site seems to load in a very strange way and it always now spits and starts and jumps all over the place.

I have a iMAC with Mountain Lion and Safari 6.0.1. No matter what I do, it never seems smooth in its operation.

It works, but I get giddly trying to see where the pages are going to with their jumping up and down. Is it because of the various adverts or is there something more fundamental to the/my problem?

Cheers

The red bar does indeed seem to have gone - good.

Hyperlinks are red but that should not affect the speed of the site in any way.

It has been pitifully slow this evening, but has speeded up again just now. The red links may have a slowing down effect since they appear to be opening a myriad of adverts. On one of my missives, the 7.41 above, the word Power was in red and hovering over it an advert came up for Windows 7! So it seems we must now be careful what we write because the words will trigger adverts!!!

Not quite you could get into others profiles to see if they were new users or old ones.I can only get into my own just now.

No problem with that maybe that is the way it should be.Just different that's all.

I had to download an ad blocker to stop the adverts.At least they are in red and easily seen so just a matter of scrolling round them I suppose.

Exactly. All we have done is alter the colour of the hyperlinks that you include in your posts - they used to be pale blue which wasn't so easy to spot, so we changed to red. Nothing else has changed - they are hyperlinks posted by forum contributors, not ads.

FE in your post above, the word colour is in red, hovering over this word triggers an advert for Microsoft store, this is what I meant and not posters hyperlinks to other websites ...alB

I also got ads once the link was opened.The first one I scrolled over was I believe for W/7.Now that was a couple of days ago so not sure if it is just the same or back to normal.
