I think the slowness has to do with tying the forum to the Mathews home page. For me, the Mathews home page has ALWAYS been slow. I'm not sure why this is, but I get the feeling that Mathews web designers are always trying to use the "latest and greatest" technology...when most of the customer base does not. The result is a slow web page for most users. That is just a suspicion of mine, and may be totally wrong. I do think there are some major disadvantages to this new forum style. The slowness/access problems are huge, as has been pointed out. The waste of space is extremely annoying. Do I really need to see some guy walking around in a cornfield holding his bow all the time...at the expense of all the text being squashed up into a small strip inside the screen? Something that hasn't really been pointed out is the huge lose of information when transferring to the new system. All the helpful stickies lost their photos. Many, many archived posts where lost. That was a wealth of info for bow tuning, etc, especially for older bows that has been lost. And the search function for what posts remain in the archive...Have you tried to use it? Not the most user friendly. And I think a big thing is time. For me, I just don't have time to spend on forums very much. There are too many other things in life to enjoy.
