Forum is running just fine.
Slow connections can be caused by many things from the PC needing it's browser refreshed, cache needed emptying, slow internet to a severer somewhere up line not working fast etc.

Flashbang, thanks for doing that but it was an older post I wanted closed/removed. I've re posted the one I want open. Sorry I wasn't specific on the original request.

I am well aware of the various causes of generalised slow internet connections. But what I was referring to earlier was specifically related to this site alone.

For instance, I write a short message and hit the submit reply button. The screen (or rather the tab) freezes with the spinning circle informing me that something is happening. I wait and wait, at least a minute. In the end I click on another tab, lets say Amazon and I am able to navigate through various pages without delays. I glance at the MR Forum tab and still the spinning blue circle. So I click on another tab, say the Hornby site, and click through several pages without delays. I then click in the MR forum tab and the unsent message is still there and the spinning circle still present. Well over 2 minutes have passed in this time and so I close the tab down, open another and select the MR forum from bookmark toolbar and it starts up, message has not been submitted so have to start again.

This is NOT an isolated incident using this site, but it was particularly poor yesterday morning which is why I posted the question. I thought maybe some site maintenance was being carried out or on the server that hosts it, or possibly too many users, though that did seem unlikely.

To be fair to TDD sometimes slow performance issues only last for a short period of time - and certainly at the time I am writing this there don't seem to be any general problems accessing the forum. I may correct this if I try and post and it takes a while though!

I have just gone and looked at new threads etc and had no problems at all

Regards
