Default Why does this place load so slow for me?

As the title states, I'm trying to figure out why this particular forum loads sooooo slow for me. Half the time, the page I try to access here (especially threads and User CP) doesn't even load fully - just a blank page. When they do load, it takes 3 - 5 mins per page. I really want to come back, but it's so annoying. =( I'd love if you could help me fix it.

My internet is horrible, yes, but other forums almost identical to this one load fine (BMG, for example).

I am using:
- A dial up connection (AOL).
- Internet Explorer (Don't know what version... >.>)

Though that's what I always used, and it used to work fine... So yeah, help? =(

It's probably because you're still using a dial-up ...

...XD

MAN, NEW PEOPLE THESE DAYS.

That's what I always used. And why would that allow other forums to load but not this one? =P

Who let you out of your cage anyway? O_o

No idea. PE2K loads just fine for the rest of us. Maybe it just doesn't like Dial-up.

Switch to Firefox. :P

I haven't noticed too many chances as far as loading time, but yeah, I've got a cable connection. I'd drop AOL if I were you though. That's been the source of many of my early Internet nightmares.

Well, currently my options are AOL or Earthlink. CenturyLink is building a DSL substation here in August, though. So I guess I'll just have to make due 'till then.

Kim suggested Firefox too. Might try that again. Ty. =)

Go with Firefox. It loads pages 1-2 minutes faster for me than IE D:

Acctualy it doesnt load fast for me either. Just some parts such as the user pages load fast. Yea and for all the people that recomend switching to fire fox well some of the users here are only like 12(me) and cant switch to firefox cause there parents will get really mad. i use bell south and have internet 7.5. i hope this problem gets figured out for people like me and you shroomish.

You could also use the Forum skin ASDial-up, which is for users with a slower connection.

Dial-up is so 2000. Time to evolve it into Broadband to raise its Speed.

Tried that, doesn't really help.

And dial up isn't a choice. XD Broadband isn't offered here. I'm in the same boat from seven years ago. =(

Anyway, ty for the replies all. I can deal 'till August, I guess. =P

I think you can also choose not to display peoples avatars and sigs, witch will help a lot with loading on dial up.

The first time you go to a site, it loads slowly. But once you go to the site again and it's in your memory it gets faster until it just pops up.
Also, yeah, Dial-up would slow it down very much. DU downloads 1 MB every 30 seconds to a minute. And since PE2K is a big site...

Note: If you clear your memory, PE2K will take just as long to load as it did the first time.

Also, Proxy sites and Myspace/Facebook suck up all your memory and band width. That's why the load for them never gets faster. If you have a lot of loading tabs or even finished loading tabs, that will slow down the loading process. Hope this helped ^^
