This is a strange one, and I'm wondering if others are experiencing the same thing.
When I'm accessing new posts, topics etc. in "Cameras, Lenses and Shooting Gear", "Digital Image Processing", "Digital Cameras, Backs and Shooting Techniques" etc., the forum is extremely slow in responding to a click on the link for tracking, on replying to new posts, previewing, etc.
But it's still quite fast when I went to this part of the forum, "About This Site".
My guess is that this is a database optimization issue, that the number of posts, search words or something has passed a performance threshold in the database for those boards mentioned above, while the relatively low traffic on this board is no problem yet.
(We usually tell our customers "so clean up your old posts and stored searches, then", but I wouldn't want old posts to disappear from the LL forum.)
Edit: posting this new topic was also dead slow, but tracking it and hitting the "edit" button was quick.
