the board is so, so slow

hello

first i thought my internet connection didn't work properly today, but then i took a look at other sites (menstennisforum amongst others), and the new wtaworld.com is nerve-wreckingly slow. other people complained in different threads about this, too, so i'm not the only one.
what happened?

Please see my message in the announcement forum. Our uber server geeks think they've found the problem.

I've cleared out my cookies and still no improvement. The board is ten times slower than it used to be and I'm on broadband.

It's still a wee bit slower than before. Guess I'll have to get used to it.

One of the big changes in the way the latest releases are coded is using tables instead of DIV tags to align everything so that it's compatible with more browsers. It's possible that on slower machines and older browsers it will take longer to render all of the tables on the page even with faster broadband connections.

Poe, it's the opposite for me

on my new computer (Win XP) the board is very very slow
and on my old computer (Win 98 and much worse characteristics) is way way better

Everything loads quickly until I try to view one of the message threads in a forum. These threads all take about 40 seconds to load on my computer too and my computer is top of the range. Very annoying!!!!!!!!!!

I've read complaints on the support forums that using Mozilla can slow down the rendering of thread pages.

What browser and version are you using to view the board?

I think the problem is with this WYSISYG Editor...
