Wow why does this website suck so bad? I think it's worse than the old dial up sites I used 20 years ago. Why is it so slow, why does it constantly reload, why do I have to try multiple times just to make a post? It makes me want to throw my coffee and smash my iPad! I have to go to the euro lotus sites just to read posts in peace. I'm a member to multiple forums, websites, webpages etc. this one gets the award for the worst by far.
Sorry for the rant, maybe I need to give up the coffee. Everybody have a good drive today.

Huh. It runs fine on my computer, ipad and phone. I do use Tapatalk on my phone to access it b/c it's easier to see.

Try running Speedtest.net on your connection.

Runs like crap for me too. I can't hardly type............ Its happens at work, at home not sure on the phone but TapTalk probably helps.

FYILifetime memebers wn't have he issues ey don'have alls from what I understanmd


Ok that above is what it looks like when I type, and I don't type fast. I am a two finger pecker


FYI: Lifetime members won't have the issues as they don't have all the ads from what I understand.

Maybe its premium members

Had to go back and fix al this, takes a long time, gets frustrating ....................


Edit: fix all this, flippin site

I don't have issues on any device and I don't have a premium membership, an ad blocker, or any high end machines.

Works fine for me with Safari and Firefox.

Nice picture. Worthy of the upcoming calendar IMHO.

I never use an iPad for it, but this site is the reason I installed an ad blocker. I had a terrible time at first--ridiculous with the ads! It got better after I paid for the membership, but still not cured. Several posters told me it was my computer, that I had malware, surfed for too much porn, etc.

One of the admins pointed something out though, if you browse without logging in, the ads seems to be WAY worse (that's not how he phrased it lol). I started logging in and the pages load much faster, even without a pop up blocker. The memory usage quit creeping up (for instance, leaving the browser open over night would result in a molasses computer in the morning, with the browser eating up tons of RAM, but only if I left a Lotustalk tab open).

So, make sure you are logging in! I'd wager that many set it to automatically login and forget what the site is like without logging in.

On a PC as a guest there are too many ads and sh*t flying across screen even with blockers. When I am logged in it is ok.

On an iPhone with Safari the normal (Enhanced Mobile view) view is absolutely useless... I don't know how anyone can read anything.. as you scroll things reorganize and jump up and down so you have to scroll back up to get back to a thread you saw then it seems to jump down again... it is crazy worthless. So, every time I use my phone I have to EXIT Enhanced Mobile view. Classic view works fine, as does the full version and my favorite which is full version classic that makes it look more like it does with a PC. Anyway, swapping all these views is annoying. Perhaps that is what TapTalk helps with but I don't want to install it on my phone.

I did figure out a while back that if you aren't logged in it's even worse. Mobile view on a phone is useless. The advice to go to classic view is the ticket.
