    Perhaps this has been discussed before and I did a rather short search under this heading, but why does it take so long for anything I click on, on anything here, to open up? I hesitated for a long time, to post this,because I am not a contributing member, if I should feel guilty about this. Most times it takes around an average of 15 seconds, sometimes more, sometimes less, for me to see what I have clicked on. Anything. And of all the forums, past and present, (and I have been involved with a lot) this is the only one that does this for my Apple iPad Pro, Safari and iPadOS 15.4.1 as of my last update. I like it on here, don’t contribute in content as some others on here but just curious if I am the only one who experiences this on here, and have from day one. And just for the record, I’m used to it, but just curious as sometimes even trying to get this forum itself to open takes a very long time.

    I've been noticing the same, taking a lot longer than it used to.

    I use an IPad Pro…and it’s always taken 4-10 seconds to click over…I live in Australia though…crap internet speeds. Sometimes (at least on IPads) having too many applications open can slow download speeds…just my two cents.

    Thanks, just funny, like it’s just this forum. As an example, I just got the email in my in box, as I do for a thread on here, and when I clicked on “thread” it took forever to open to get to here.

    Sometimes it opens up in a flash and I am pleasantly surprised.

    I've noticed the slowness as well. CAC, I'd expect it to take longer if accessing from Australia. You have to figure, if the servers are in the US it's a long ways to Australia, then because you're located in the southern hemisphere everything has to be rotated 180 degrees so it displays right side up for ya'll.:D
