    .. I can squeeze out a dump faster than your pages take to load.

    Maybe there's something wrong on your side? I have no issues at my work or home.

    Nope, we have ultrafast cable internet here, and all other sites load lightning fast except this one. I get the same loading lag whether here at work (shhh), home or on my tablet - or using my phone browser. The WP App however works great.

    well, hate to tell ya, but for me, the site loads quickly at work, my lumia 920, tegra note, surface pro 2, and 3 other computers i use often.... it could be something between wpcentral and your provider or your provider to you.

    Something's wrong on your end, although I can't tell for sure what.

    WPC is as fast as any site on my end.

    While I hate to suggest it, can you try blocking ads to see if that speeds things up? If that still doesn't help, turn it back on please 😊

    Site loads fast on my pcs but in metro on my Surface it is incredibly slow. The ad blockers built in IE do not work on this site for some reason :/

    Try clearing your cache and history. We've made a number of performance enhancements over the past few weeks, and it could be you have some cached files slowing you down.

    I had issues with really laggy load times on this site a couple weeks ago, but it's been better for me recently.

    Turned up my PopUp Blocker in Tools to Full and took the advice to delete cache and history.
    While it's not silky smooth loading, it is much better than before, when I'd have to wait 5-10 seconds before I could even scroll through the pages.

    Thanks everyone!

    Hey I just realized something else - posting photos is WAY better on this site than before - much quicker and a nicer status interface. KUDOS to the site managers for this - what a huge difference! Took this yesterday with my 1020 in raw DNG and ran through Lightroom with VSCO full res emulator of Fuji Velvia ISO 50 HC Color Slide film..

    Cool photo!

    Glad you've noticed the improvement. We do work on a lot of performance enhancements behind the scenes. :)

    Yes WPCentral is indeed slow loading, but it's due to the ads. Somehow, they take ages to load.

    I haven't noticed slowness really but I would love to see better notifications on the forums.

    Definitely ads are a problem. I can't do anything, at home on my SP, work on my workstation, or on my 1020 (if I get linked to the page from another site or reddit), until all ads are loaded. And the ads are so obtrusive it isn't funny. If I'm scrolled down and accidentally click on a blank area of the page, I get shot to some other page. It is just as bad as USAToday's news page, but at least theirs you can start scrolling the page before the ads all load. Seriously, how many ads do you need on a page? I'm counting about 20 different external links on the sidebars alone. Many are repeats, how many times do I need to know about the LG G3 on a single page? 10 times according to your layout. If you don't want us to be blocking your ads so you actually get some revenue, turn it down a bit, would you? I now only go to your site when I'm bored, and have time to wait for things to load. And yes, all history, cookies, etc, all deleted.

    Edit: with more testing, the page loads much faster on Firefox and Chrome. On IE11, which I'm using at work right now, it is painfully slow. I can use Firefox on my workstation and SP, but that doesn't help much on my phone.

    @Bad Bullet - We've implemented a number of fixes based on feedback here, so thank you for your comments (keep it coming)...

    We're taking a closer look at IE11 as well, as it seems to take issue with certain elements of the site. We want to get it fixed up ASAP for WPC members, not only here, but at ALL Mobile Nations communities.

    Thanks for your continued feedback (and patience!).
