I don't know if anyone else has noticed it as much as I have, but Craftster has been getting slower and slower over the last few months. It's got to the point that I rarely come on any more because it takes forever to just get into the Glass Crafts area, let along view the threads. I know it's not me because I have a fast fiber connection and other forums I'm on that are very photo intensive do not have the same slow down problem. I don't know if this site is just experiencing server issues with too many users for the bandwidth and hardware they use or if they are on a slow link. Or if it's because they have too many pop up ads all over each page.
It's too bad since it does drive people away, even those that just want to view and don't even post. Although it probably wouldn't do any good, I'd post a comment to the site owners if I knew where to post it, but the site is too slow for me to even bother trying to find if there is such a place on here. I'll check back from time to time, but that's why I've not been on very much lately.
