Default Ponderous Navigation Times

Not sure where/how to ask if I am the only one suffering extended wait times when navigating the New Posts forum. Not a all uncommon to have to wait 4-5 minutes or more after clicking for the next page of threads, to scroll a thread, or to return from a thread to the page list. I've learned not to try any navigation (click or scroll) until "continuous circle" icon goes away in the tab. I'm using Windows 10 and Explorer.

Not experiencing any such problem with a couple other forums in which I participate.

No issues here with Firefox or Safari on my computer or phone, but I don't do Windows or
IE, so I can't speak to those platforms

I'm using Windows 10 and Explorer. it's less than a second to get to the next page on the New Posts forum.
I do have another site where it is slow -- not sure why.

I just open the "Active Topics" then select how many days I want to go back. Quick and simple.

I need simple...
Whenever I fill out form , in the part that says, 'In case of emergency, notify: I always put 'DOCTOR.

Sounds like it is time to clear out the cache or history.

Clear the cache; then history, then cookies that start with penturners.org

After that, check how much space is devoted to the cache. With todays Terra-byte drives it is usually too large. Set it to about 50 megabytes.

All these things have many "how-to"s on the net.
