Speed of the site
Before I post this to the general population at large, I thought I'd ask among the Site Sponsors. Should be a group of regulars, many of whom have been here for a long time. All who should have minimal advertising present in the data stream. And, heck, there hasn't even been a post here in the Site Sponsor forum for over 3 months, so maybe some of us are just waiting for something to react to.
My experience suggests the page load time has increased noticeably in the past few months. I have very good download speed from my ISP. I have effective antivirus and malware monitoring. I manage my cookies, and clear my cache. And, for what it's worth, I am not experiencing the same level of slow-down on the four other forums I participate in regularly, nor any of the social media sites I visit.
I'm not trying to start a negative fest, nor am I adverse to any advice I might not have already tried. And, I probably don't need to be in on any secrets the Mods and the MTF Support folks are keeping under their hats. I'm just curious, what has happened. I don't see the statistics, but based on the level of participation in the threads I am active in (JD GT/LT forum, ATV, Chainsaw, Tools, and a couple others) I have the sense the site is less busy now than perhaps a couple years ago. I could be wrong, but posted questions seem to take longer for answers and reaction than I remember. Then again, I remember lots of things that were better in my youth. Maybe my memory is just applying a healthy patina on the past.
So, anyway, a direct question:
Are others among Site Sponsors experiencing slower page load times than we used to see?
