Hey guys... yeah... the issue is actually our 'reporting' tool for those sponsor ad buttons... we are going to move to a different platform so that we can get them popping back up quickly. There is some technical mumbo jumbo for finding a proper php based reporting tool, that works with community server... and the end result is 'slow'...
I'll get it turned off for today... so you can see the difference... we are working hard on moving everything over to vBulletin for the winter... which then puts us on a different environment... where we can use a better reporting tool, that doesn't take the load time.
Keep the feedback coming!!! And please keep supporting our site sponsors too! [;)]
