Is there any way to make the ads load faster?

post #1 of 4

I know, the ads are needed to pay the bills and maybe provide some profit for the owners of this forum.  That's OK with me.

But, can the ads be made to load faster?  Maybe ditch the animations?  Several friends have stopped looking at Epic, because they spend more time sitting and waiting than they spend reading about skiing.  Buying a faster home internet service is not the answer...the cable service promises are better than the reality, and the only DSL available isn't the fastest.

I don't know the cause, but Epic has been loading much slower for me, over the last two weeks or so.

Me too.

Just so I could get the pages to load at all tonight, I had to turn my Firefox Ad Blocker on......problem solved and everything is now back to its old speedy self.

Hey all - that's not good!  We don't want ads causing performance issues.

I will look into how we can use technology to improve this issue.  The issue is that we are calling different ad networks to serve different ads and this is slowing things down...if we can streamline this process the page slowdown will cease.

Hope to make progress on that, this week.
