TWF... Bandwidth HOG...

So I've noticed that TWF takes longer to load than any other forum I have found... I've also noticed that when I am TWF'ing, I lose like 20% of my download speeds just getting into the forum... 70%+ loss when I load a few threads at once...

, but can I get a lower bandwidth version?

Little things like allowing avatars that are animated,
and the rep system take up bandwith.

Yes all other forums I am on are much faster!!!!

Possibly a hosting issue?
Loads extremely slowly for me also most of the time.
When I try to open a few threads in different tabs it will often fail to load any of them and load the 404 of death. Never had this problem with other forums and my cable connection is great. I live in the boonies and only a few other people have cable internet around here.




edit; another forum I'm on has a mod who has mastered vbulletin, did huge upgrade and overhall that's unlike any other forum. He may be able to help with this issue. Admins/mods lemme know if you want his email.
