- The ads (I think) are really slowing this site down
It is get a bit annoying. It never used to be this bad, it’s taking 5-10seconds a page. No issues with my broadband, or other sites with google ads.
Is it a conspiracy to make me upgrade to premier? Or something odd with Chrome and this particular site.
Keep seeing “waiting for xxxx” down in the bottom left

FWIW, I occasionally see the “waiting for Facebook” message at the bottom of the screen. That’s used by the wee widget over at the RHS. Of course that also shows my “Friends” who also “like” STW in Facebook and it’s dynamically generated. That means it can’t be cached…Posted 7 years agopatricksingletrackMember
I’m looking into this to see what can be done to speed delivery of pages. I’m regularly making changes to the site and ad-delivery with the aim of improving performance. Occasionally there will be issues.
For the record – there is no conspiracy to force Premier. However, we do need to deliver ads to pay for the users who are not Premier.
I make every effort to ensure pages are delivered as quickly and painlessly as possibly. If there are issues, let me know and I’ll look into them. Feel free to (politely) raise them on this forum or even better email me directly at @singletrackworld.com">firstname.lastname@example.org
Email is better for me as I’m not usually watching Forum topics.Posted 7 years agomogrimMember
