    Try going on at 3 am. You'll get a message saying it's too busy.

    I have DSL and when I'm on Plow Site it's like being on dial up rite now. When I'm on other sites it's fast like usual.

    If you look at the most users on-line, the record was two days ago.Thumbs Up

    I'm sure sheer traffic is slowing down the site.

    It's gotta be the amount of users, it's been slow as molasses lately.

    Here's some tips for the mods to speed the server up.
    Go into Admin Cpanel, and have the forum delete threads after no posts in them for a month or so.
    Also Prune the inactive users (not active for a year or so)
    get another server in another location, such as Chicago, NY, where ever.
    Delete some forums. (I don't think we need the ones that no one goes in)
    An example would be plowsite e reports 98% of those threads are made by Sean. One more, that degelmen industries thread, that hasn't had a post since September!
