The site has been crawling for some time. It's certainly putting me off.

I've been sent to the diganose problem page quite a few times in the last few days. I often give up for hours at a time as no issues are found and remedied and refresh doesn't work.

It's that page but in IE9.

There is one other site where this has been happening, but not nearly as much as here.

I tend to steer clear of the site often,as I get java crashing,errors aplenty like being logged out when I try to post etc.This on top of slow page loading just sends me off to elsewhere.

I also think that after 20 years of the web, the novelty of being able to converse all night for the sake of it has worn off. Most sites are much quieter in recent years compared to 10 years ago.

"Most sites are much quieter in recent years compared to 10 years ago."

Substitute /forums' for 'sites' and I will agree with you. The reason can be summed up in two words: social networking.

We get more traffic on the site now than we did a year ago, but that's because of our content. Thousands of people browse through the forums but don't post - they're looking for specific fixes or advice, and they find it in our archive.

Well, I have noticed plenty of slowness on here, to the point of reassessing my laptop, but seeing as how it seems to be OK elsewhere, I'm assuming its just the PCA site.

This forum is rather unconventional in that its not like others (e.g. Digital spy) and is more like an extension of the website with all the bells & whistles and (of course) the advertisements which compound to make the experience 'tedious' to say the least.

GOOD NEWS - the mobile site on my iphone through Safari is GREAT!! Banner advert top & bottom but apart from that, very fast and usable, that's where I am now.

BAD NEWS - the PCA app seems to exclude the Forums.
