It seems that some of the adverts that are running are slowing down the site for some people, Ive contacted the advert people and they are working on the their server at 3pm EST so around 8PM tomorrow which will hopefully fix the problem.
BUT that got me thinking a little bit and i was wondering would anyone be interested in a premium membership to the forum ? It means that you would be moved into a group with a colour ( like the VIPS, Mod's etc have now ) which would be totally advert free , other perks like larger signature space and things like that ? Obviously if lots of people wanted to do that it would take a large chunk of advert revenue away from the forum so i was thinking something like £2 per month to be a premium member which i think is a reasonable price ?
At the moment its just an idea and to see if people would want to do it, if enough people were interested then i would put it into action. All money collected would go towards upgrades and monthly hosting costs.
