    Why is this forum so excruciatingly slow?
    It’s now got to the stage where I can do 4 or 5 pages of form study on another tab while waiting for a page to turn on TRF. It’s not my computer either, as I’m using my daughter’s at the moment, with a different ISP and browser, and it’s equally as slow as my own.
    Rather than all these whistles and bells to attract new members, how about returning to the original operating system to keep some of those it already had?
    It really is p*ss poor at the moment.

    Corm’s mentioned on the TRF 10th Anniversary quiz thread that the TalkTalk hub in Edinburgh is not working as it should at present. I presume the knock-on effect of that is what’s currently strangling the speed of this site, and maybe others that it hosts as well.

    I agree the site has been very slow of late and it is quite annoying. Also another problem that i find particulary irritating is that the site keeps logging me out. When i click on a different thread that stupid red pop up box comes up on my screen and i have to sign in again!! :evil: :evil:

    Reet, have you tried turning off and turning on your computer?

    Alternatively, consider every time there is an upgrade(?) or change to the forum this happens – the IT boys must be completely f***** useless or cheap!.

    So, let’s face the facts the ‘Racing Forum Ltd’ no longer give a f*** about the forum, it’s all about how much advertising revenue they the ‘Racing Forum Ltd’ can raise, perhaps with a view to selling in the future – so lets just except it and stop moaning :D

    You post makes no business sense Pompete. Work for years to build up a good mebership and repuation. This brings you sposorship then you say stuff it why should I care and the mebers leave, the sposorship stops and your back to square one.

    If anything I would think they would be puting more effort than ever into keeping the forum running smoothly if it is now a profitable saleable item.

    I find if TRF is slow then so is Sportinglife.com Betfair.com Paddy Power etc etc. and very seldom it it the forum on it’s own. For me Sportinglife.com is awful at the moment as is this forum.

    Glad it wasn’t just me. I’ve noticed site has been slow for about 3 or 4 days now.

    I’ve just tried to log in using Google Chrome and the pop up from Youtube keeps getting in the way and stops me from logging in. I’ve logged in now using Explorer and it seems OK.

    Aye, it seems fine now Purwell, but it’s probably just a band-aid remedy, the like of which we’ve seen a number of times recently.
    No doubt the IT wizards will be along shortly, with another add-on to f*** response times up again. :roll:

    It is very slow, but not quite as slow as Tipster Challenge.

    One cannot blame people
    giving up.
    This site is like watching
    a snail trying to
    put its braces on !

    The speed issue may threaten the
    accuracy and validity of the current
    poll results.

    Both the 2009 and 2008
    polls finished on the 22nd
    so an extension may be the best option
    :lol:
