    Has anyone noticed any unusually slow loading times with the site? I click on a thread and it seems to take 2 minutes to load the first post, and then loads the rest.

    Yep. There's 760 people on though. The server is... well... not happy.
    Plus, the new visual ads in signatures.

    Wow, it's not taking me two minutes to load a page, but it is slower than usual. Takes about 5-10 seconds to load when it's usually instantly.

    It could be due to the visual ads in signatures, like spoonforknife pointed out. This is causing the server to do more work to load a page for each user, which can result in the server being slower. It could also be that your internet connection is currently slower than usual.

    Yeah, it seems much faster and less obtrusive.
    Thanks Bobby.
