Does anyone know why this thread:
"Extra Christmas Avatars"
on the Christmas forum take so long to load and even longer to try to post to?

Or is it just me???

No it's not just you DeW, I have never managed to open it myself I think it has something to do with it being so heavily loaded with graphics.

Try reducing your posts per page to a lower number it may help load times. You can find this under the Control Panel/Options - Edit Profile - Posts Per Page.

It may or may not help but worth a shot.

Okay, I did some experimenting on my forum, and if I just reformat the way the images are placed, it will load fine.

Since, I can't edit posts on this forum in that thread, I need a mod to format the images like this:
