Forum becomes very slow after reading just a few modifications.

Hi.

I have many notifications and after just reading a few, maybe five, the loading time for each new topic I want to read becomes very slow.

Cheers.

A few years ago @tank added slowdown code to the forum, such that after about 16 interactions with the forum at normal speeds, responses become delayed by a number of seconds. If you wait about 2 minutes, interactions with the forum speed up again. May be this is what you are experiencing?

Thank you for your reply. Such might be the case, it's annoying.

Cheers.

Would somebody remove this silly 'protection mechanism' please, at least for well-known logged in users? A whitelist might help.

I've notified @tank to tone it down a bit. :geek:
