Am I the only one to find that the site is rather slow?. It has taken me five minutes to log in and finish typing this post.

It's OK here. Could it be related to this, reported on the BBC link

I find the site works fine in Chrome on my PC including now. Very slow to log into forum updates from my Android tablet though most days. I think its the adverts as part of the page loads fine. As has been BT have had big problems this last few days. They provide part of broadband for all the genral publics ISP's

Thanks chaps. I was wondering if it is because I'm not a 'paid' member this time around or if I have a problem with my broadband, although other sites I use seem to be as normal.

It's horribly slow for me. You can't even type quickly lest letters be missed out. I think it's to do with the adverts continually loading and unloading. All other sites work just fine.
Best wishes,

Thanks guys. The site seems to be faster this morning. I was wondering if you always have to wait for them to load before you could move on. Also, does being a 'paid up' member allows the site to be faster?

I think there have been some UK-wide internet issues over the past few days. Whether or not that was affecting EPZ and PU I don't know.

It seems to back up to speed now though.
Best regards, John

The problem that I see is with the email notification that there is a new post to a thread I am following.
I click on the long link. I get the PU heading menu, I am told that the notification is reset.
