same here, i thought it was my pc, so much so i unplugged my router and modem to reset the connection even though other sites were running fine.

I have been browsing the gallery this morning trying to add my clicks here and there and it is taking upwards of 2/3 mins just to add a click. Glad to know its not just me then

Very slow here too. Using Chrome. Takes ages to look at photos, and even slow accessing the Forums.

Painfully slow. Given up twice & returned after awhile. Still no difference now!

Edit: took 1 minute to add the above comment...

DREADFUL SERVICE. very slow since about 8am ish? I too thought it my internet but everything else is ok. to load my profile takes forever (if it loads and doesnt time out).
Are you haveing a service or something? new upgrade? anything? IF you are...how about a nice EPZ status page liek ntl does or similar to show if the site is fubar or being serviced?

They are loading sponsored adverts within the comments section of all images !
Check out your own galleries.
Incidentally, I think it looks awful and is distraction for people looking and hopefully wanting to vote.

Same for me on firefox on Mac must be EPZ towers, they clearly havn't given the boys their Red Bull yet??

Hi everyone,

We are aware of the speed issues. We believe we have found a couple of the sources of the problem and are currently working on resolving the issues. I can confirm, that it has nothing to do with the recent forum changes.

Best Regards,
David
