    I dont know where to put this or maybe I should be email a mod and maybe its just me but.......... does anyone else find the new BYC so slow that its basically unusable?? Maybe its just my work, home and laptop computers that are the problem but I can't even scroll with out laggin then I scroll past then the page catches up, navigating between pages its just torturous. Never does the page show loaded its constantly transfering data and never gets to done for smooth scrolling. Sadly, I how found it frustrating and unusable.....

    Not only is it slow, but what's the reason for loading every single ad, as a single unit, in my return box. I click on RR, read a thread and want to return to the main menu and there are twenty ads loaded...Half the time, I have back completely out, and start over, to get back to RR, or it will load the profile of the person, who's last post I read.

    This is the only website I've seen, that I cannot return to my previous post, with click of the button. There are 20 ads, which have been loaded, between me and my previous view. Most of the time, it will not even return me to the top of the forum. I have to leave the site and come back in. I can't believe that it can't be fixed. No other website does that.

    Has anyone noticed it will not let you edit a post but usually once? if you try to edit it again it will not let you type.

    I could edit twice....when it could not let me type in, I would jig the side scroll bar to move threads down and get back on this reply box without a problem. Not sure why it does it but it helps when I have to edit again and again, when I want to add links to the original thread or past post.
