    Actually it does go back to the begining. Look here As you can see the topic at the bottom of the last out of all the pages available states .:24th October 2002:. Nearly if not exactly the same day gbatemp became a forum.

    You prolly have Broadband, don't you. [​IMG]

    Those not on 56K have no room to talk about things getting "slow" unless you use 56K sometimes. Its amazing how ppl automatically assume that broadband is the standard now. Its not. [​IMG]

    Any topic with more than 10 replies or so takes a looong time to load for me. Maybe some queries need to be shaved off. In the ACP, Board Settings --> CPU Saving. And change 'Remove Users Browsing this forum' and 'Remove Users Browsing this topic' to Yes. That'll save 2 queries to the database right there. I have an IBF if you're wondering where I got that info from.

    The reason I haven't come here more often is because the topics take too long to load......

    Maybe the admins should add an option that alows you to coose if you want to see peoples sigs or not. I think if you said that you didn't there would be a noticable speed up

    I am going to have to agree, that BMW guy has posted 238 times in 4 days. It has taken me nearly a year to get 500. You have to draw the line somewhere.

    You can turn sigs off in your "My Controls" area, [​IMG].

    If you reduce the queries you wont notice any change, if you look down the bottom of the page you see how long it took to execute the 14 that made up this page, ~0.15 seconds [​IMG].

    Actually I use 56k [​IMG]
    It only slows down for me when I for example download roms or visit too many websites.
