    I take it you mean the Windows Central web site?
    I personally don't have an issue, I'm in the UK. Maybe it's your internet connection that's slow...

    The blog itself had a redesign. The old design did perform a lot better. Ironically it does not work as good as I'd expect on internet explorer. There is lag and the scrolling is not smooth.

    But I heard they are working on it.

    As for the software the forum uses. It is vbulletin which is extremely outdated. I would love to see them convert to something like invision power board(ipb) or xenforo(xf)....i am an ipb fan boy lol.

    A lot of the tech sites have been moving over to the modern forum software.

    I too find the whole of Windows Central very slow to load at home or wherever I use it out and about at work and om my mobile. I noticed this since the redesign and the increase in ads. I also get many 'Phantom' page openings when trying to swipe up and down a page. Doesn't happen on any other sites. It's a shame really as this is has now become my number 2 blog for WP8 news because of it.
