    Getting this frequently. It does open up the board eventually but never the same 'wait-for' time. A few times it doesn't let me in at all

    I'm grateful it lets me in at all. For the last few months or so I couldn't access this site without a vpn. I thought it had gone the same way as Wikipedia, bbc.com and The Guardian in being declared 'an enemy of the people' by the black headed crispy duck brigade in Peking..

    Moses, if you are reaching for clarity, it ain't working well.

    I had a similar problem, Smiles until Moses suggested ticking the Remember Me? box to the left of the Log in button when logging in. See the following screen shot:

    To be honest, pages don't download any faster, and getting the "Checking your browser" window for five seconds every time you join or refresh the website is, as Smiles wrote, a pain in the arse. Is anybody seeing any benefits from this new process?

    Forum has about 1600-2000 visits daily. Average page load is faster about 32 percent (depends on visitor"s location).

    Does that include the interminable time the new splash screen itself takes to load the Forum page we're actually trying to visit? As I said in another post, but I'll put it more forcefully, this is the sort of "wet dream" that computer nerds have. For the rest of us the experience is a total pain in the arse (PITA). If you have already to be a member to bypass it by using "remember me", it seems to be acting as a deterrent to those who aren't members. And let's face it, if we're already members we don't really care that Forum pages load "faster"
