Yep tonight it is really slow. Went out 3 times tried cleaning Cashe etc but nothing, it would warn about Certs and then not open. When it finally opened, it would not let me post and then had to wait to go back to home page. It has been a lot slower lately on Computer, Phone and my Tablet.

I usually don't have any problems with this site, but tonight it is so painfully slow, and page loads keep timing out. Makes you wanna throw the computer out the window.

I'm having the same problems. But don't throw your computer out the window! Lol  I'm only having problems with this site. It's been happening for about a week now. Most of the time, I just give up on this site. It's never a problem with any other forums.

Same here, it's been about a week that this site has been very slow.  I almost gave up on posting this waiting for the post reply page to come up.

I think I have to retract my previous post about having no issues, which I had not experienced in the past.

Today is another story....board loads extremely slow.

Think I will go mow the yard while my post loads.....LOL

so bad this morning it takes several tries to load the page. I assume since someone else took over as webmaster it may be safe to say that no one really cares and the problem may or may not be resolved. This very well could be the new "norm". who knows, i'll just go to BNO. At least it loads and the powers that be actually give a ----.

Like Debra used to say to Raymond on Everybody Loves Raymond ... Just so you know.

Two and one-half minutes just to load the page.  This is senior citizen slow for a webpage.

Will the last person to leave BCM/MAK please turn out the lights.

Same as RGW,

"Sporadic speed.  Ranges from .5 second to 20 sec to load, whether it's on the home page or specific topic, new or viewed before.  No commonality that I can discern yet. Always "waiting for bus conversions.com" appears in the progress window (bottom left corner of Firefox)".

Sometimes refuses to go to "Show new replies to your posts."

I play Solitaire while waiting!

Maybe a new server and a good hosting company would help..... Roll Eyes

Could be Mike is just just tired of paying for bandwidth & getting no returns. If he throttles things down, folks will just drift away.

Hey Low Tide, I see you changed your picture...... Nice Ride!!!   LOL!!!!

I certainly hope the problems we are seeing is not a result of a "decision" someone made. There are several free forum hosting sites that would handle this forum just fine. If Mike wants to shut things down that's his perogitive, but the forum could go on at no cost.

I had heard through the grape vine that web hosts have changed. This is something that even the Mods have nothing to do with. It has been terribly slow from where I sit for several days. Embarrassed Embarrassed

I still enjoy reading all of the recent posts from a lot of new Bus Nuts! Grin

There won't be any new posts soon if something isn't done about the inconsistent speeds although it seems to be somewhat better today.  I'm sure Mike K is trying to cut costs, but he is doing it the wrong way if he really wants to keep the forum running.
