NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > FanNation - Even Slower Than Before

Even after the great "fix" of 2013 I've never seen a slower forum site. A typical session now involves hitting the reload button multiple times after the browser chokes on the ads being pushed. Most days I just give up and close the browser.

Too many ads, flash objects, animations and videos forced at page load.

FanNation = Trash with Flash.

FN's software geeks need to tell the marketing geeks to go pound sand.

Ad block and disable the video.

Already running FlashBlock and AdBlock.

And I had to reload twice just now to see your post!

The spinny thing now starts off counter-clockwise (for about an hour and a half), then starts spinning clockwise when it's just about (as in, within 90 seconds) to actually do something.

In the interest of avoiding NSFW status, I'll refrain from expressing my frustration in the words that 1st popped into my coarse little brain.

I particularly like the "select a board or thread to go to and it comes up a white page" feature...you have to it reload for it to appear...

Agree here. SI is certainly not trying to keep eyeballs on its site.

All you need to do is hit the 'F5' button. It works every time. Your complaining about first world problems is very many funny!

I think I might like this site. ...if it didn't crash my browser every time I try to use it.
