Hi, dear colleagues.

The Proz.com site works as slow as a snail starting from this morning here. I thought it was the internet connection fault, but it wasn't - all the other sites work just as fast as they always do.

It just shows the top part of the page with all the "Home, Kudoz, Jobs" menius, and the lower part (with the very content) shows up only in a minute or so. Sometimes it doesn't show up at all. The "Browse jobs' opens up after 5 minutes...if it opens up at all.

I tried different browsers, but the problem is the same.

I barely opened this page to post the topic... So if it's the wrong place for this forum thread, please, put it in the right place.

Please, explain what is going on... (is it a temporary Proz webpage problem?..)

Thanks for any comments or help.

Best regards,
Vitaly

It is impossible to use ProZ because 1 click takes 2-4 minutes to load a page.
Prior to loading a page (KudoZ, Forum...) it says "Connecting to ads.proz.com".
Even the modem I used 20 years ago is faster.

Regardless of which browser I'm using.

I don't see any reference to "Connecting to ads.proz.com" here.

Looking forward to normal page load speeds soon.

I'm also having these awful delays. Seems to get stuck on "static.proz.com" and then on "ads.proz.com", according to what Firefox says at the lower left. It's absolutely maddening.

Fixed now. Well, it is still slow for me, but dial-up-modem slow, not take-the-dog-for-a-walk slow.
