Can't be said enough. I enjoy the site but for the love of God fix it.

    It is always really fast for me.  I haven't had any issues.

    Sadly...I must agree.

    I've got a feevah, and the only prescription... is more cowbell.

    To load fully, it takes 12-20 seconds every single time and it seems to be the HTML file that causing it.. I don't know how, but that's how it looks anyway!

    It's not too bad. For me it typically takes from 4-8 seconds.

     

    It's obviously a very very old website. I'm sure there have been improvements to it over the years but I'm not sure how much. They're still using the spry panels and I'm pretty sure those are deprecated.

     

    Most of the loading is probably coming from all the images used everywhere.

     

    Using Chrome, mmobomb actually loads about a second faster but from the same website here: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/djoPkQ/http://www.mmobomb.com/ it says the load time is wayyyy faster (1.76) than mmorpg.com (5.45 to 8.0). Mmohuts: http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/eItot2/http://www.mmohuts.com/ is about a 3.4

     

    Overall though, it varies a lot. Sometimes the mmorpg homepage loads in about 1.5-4 seconds for me (just counting), mmobomb can take up to 3-4, mmohuts also around 1 second or less.

     

    I'm not sure if there's any problem with the mmorpg site in comparison to other similar sites. When doing things like clicking on reply, or edit, it can take quite a while to load everything properly.

     

    You can also compare or analyze using other sites too like this one: http://gtmetrix.com/reports/mmorpg.com/3NMKJ8IB They give a lot of good tips on how you can optimize like combining certain images into a sprite sheet, minifying the css and just generally optimizing images.
