    Know that its football season and the server probably gets overloaded but wondering if any other posters have similar issues.(only 2)

    1. A Post 2 months ago about subscribers no longer seeing ads on forums. There are times when site slows down until, sorry, but an ad, sometimes 2 ads have to load on the page. This especially happens in prime evening hours. And yes I am a subscriber.

    2. This is recent and again occurs mainly on prime evening. The site come up in a weird format with green 'swamp gas' lettering. Maybe this is a Halloween thing but all the posts come up in a unorganized array. The 'likes' appear horizontal down the page instead of vertical, which is somewhat annoying. And again the site slows down.

    Not trying to do a estrogen rant here but now that its an off week this might be a good time to find out about these issues.

    As to the ads
    It’s a new ad unit we are testing to replace one that was removed elsewhere.

    VIP subscribers do not see it.

    It’s a caching thing. Now that wa are on Google”s Project Shield for protection from DDOS attacks our site is heavily cached on Google’s servers so it sometimes burps on the rendering when it sends you the cached version of our site.

    Sometimes forcing a refresh works, i.e. holding down shift key while clicking your browser reload button.

    Thanks!

    That’s what it is — caching per above.

    As for things slowing down on your end, you may want to try something like Ghostery (Google it) to see if it speeds things up for you.
