Hi Chris and others agree
Something is amiss with forum. Sign in takes 2 to 3 mins.
I use different browsers, on mobile and no other forum / sites are this slow (ok speeds when into site). This is a very small forum and low member activity (yet extremely important ) in the scheme of other sites (ie I use motoring forums / family history etc)
Hosting is peanuts agree. We are talking £100 not £1000's
New folks 'browsing' in for help , guidance and support won't be impressed in my opinion, which is a great shame
Maybe someone will provide answers .
