I am going to chime in as well on the slowness of the bb. I haven't been coming here for a couple of weeks or so strictly because it takes me the better part of an hour to get on and I don't have that kind of time right now to mess with it. I have no trouble anywhere else on the internet so I know it's the TOH site. Other sites have lots of ads but they are not slow?
I also wish we had the old forum back...wishful thinking. It worked perfectly and the pages loaded super quick. Like plumcrazy I know they won't do it but just saying I sure miss the old board. I wouldn't mind this one if it moved quick like the old one. I also agree they should put all of the groups here on the main board so we didn't have to join or go elswhere to join in.
Anyway just thought I should speak up since it's why I have been absent. I usually stay logged in but I am going to log off when I leave this post and hope I can get back on again.
Thanks for listening Sue and doing what you do.

I'm so glad you did! Keep trying to visit us, hopefully the changes they're making will kick in at some point and speed things up.

Honestly I think some of those groups can be phased out completely or merged with another of a similar topic, there are 4 dealing with health issues that can be merged.
There's another group where most days only 1 or 2 people even post on that forum because it's members have moved to Facebook for privacy. Well, if they want privacy, then why do they need a special board on TOH?
The only reason the group forums were put into place was was because there were so many group and chatter threads on Recipes that they took up the entire first page and depending on how many people replied to "day old" group threads often a person had to go to page 3 to find a recipe that had been posted 12 hrs earlier.
It was a great idea and wonderful thing for Reiman to do, but times change, people move on and hard as it may be to accept, the board needs to change too to keep up with the times.
Perhaps the solution would be to eliminate all non-recipe related chatter on the Recipes forum, rename it or perhaps delete it altogether. Merge all the chatter groups and focus on using the cooking/various recipe forums for their intended purpose.
Actually minutes between reading,posting,replying now.
I have people trying to get on for an hour and others are so fed up with the slowness they are ready to leave all together. Please listen to us and fix this ASAP. If you don't you are risking losing a LOT of faithful people. Depo!!!
I also had trouble getting on line hadn't been able to for several weeks would download ads but blank down middle finally had to stop trying with internet explorer and use foxfire. Prefer Explorer but won't happen here.
I'm sorry guys, I'm trying! I filed another report with the team for you.
Sue darlin,Do not take any blame.We know you can only do so much to help.You can give TOH the info,but what they do with it is up to them. I really don`t think they care.I don`t imagine they garner much profit from this BB.This slow site situation has been a problem since they did the first "improvement" 3 ? or so years ago.
I`m not going to complain anymore on this subject.It`s like beating a dead horse.
You`re the best and most caring moderator TOH has had.I thank you for all your hard work.
p s notice the time between my last post about crispy kale and this one.Big sigh!!
They do care and if the site would misbehave for one of them it would make it easy to fix! It's a sneaky thing though and it doesn't. It rarely misbehaves for me! It's really frustrating.
I appreciate your kind words, they mean a lot.
I'm off to freeze my tail off at a football game! Go Big Red!
Maybe what they need is new software. One that can't load spyware and malware.
Put On A Happy Face
