Yes, they are going to look into the slow loading times.I like the new forum too. It's just every page load takes 5-6 seconds.
I checked the console, and the first response takes usually 5sec, than loading the stylesheets / pictures / scripts are from cache/under a a few ms. So loading the forum board, and navigating to a topic takes at least 15sec. It really throws back the experience Wonder if it's just me or .. ? (Yes, every other website loads fast).
