Interesting choice for an introductory post, Barrysmith.

I have been on this site for over 3 years, and not ONCE did I ever think I was
on dial up again. Not sure why you say that, maybe a better explanation???

Maybe he is using Chrome as his browser??

oh,sorry.It's just so slooooooooooooow.There is some useful information and I will admit to having used it but as I said it's slow to load :-( I have an old VW bus and a Miata and the Element and use thesamba.com and miata.net and they are like light speed compared to this site.No offense to anyone.....just commenting on the speed.

It's a legit gripe. The difference, is... and speaking quite frankly... EOC is advertising-heavy because it is a commercially-run site, vs. an enthusiast-run site. The speed problems are completely because there are several third parties supplying content on nearly every page view, and your browser sits and waits for this external data before releasing the page.

If you want to talk "dial-up", this site is absolutely not accessible without broadband.

It's just the way it is, and we (the moderators) don't have a lot of say in it. Sorry there is no easy fix. [shoulder shrug]

I'd amend that to "no say at all."

Ad blockers work. Also see this recent post: Site seems slow? There IS a fix. (http://www.elementownersclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=70915)
