    Vbulletin was initially written by a group of UK programmers.
    Then, the US marketing company Internet Brands bought it and hired a new team of programmers who created the version 5, which is a complete rewrite.

    The UK programmers created the new forum software Xenforo.

    It didn't use to be this slow, it got bad when the site updated. I thought "they" were working on a new version to speed things up?

    s14.net uses the same version of vBulletin and it's infinitely quicker. still have a hard time getting used to how this forum is laid out, considering i had been used to the old version for over ten years. lol

    What's bloated about the front end? Maybe because I'm on the dark theme but it seems pretty minimal (but still painfully slow). Maybe the code is just written poorly.

    That would make sense with the POS that this version of VB that we are working with.

    I'm actually am starting to think it's actually the bloated interface that's making things slow, not the backend. When I access the database through the mod CP, it's really fast. But anything in the public forum loads extremely slow.

    it actually burns a quart every 500 miles. Or less, if towing the pro3 car.
    If it were a BMW someone would claim that this is "normal" behavior.

    Yeah, it's slow on PC and mobile via browser.

    I think it’s always been slow. Just every thing else has got faster in the last 10 years.

    Slow on PC also?

    As mentioned (and i linked previously), many boards are running on vB, and have been for decade(s). Perhaps it's an "ease of use" newer system, but some boards i still occasionally hit still look identical to mid-'00's.
    Same this is the biggest reason I don’t log in much anymore (besides now having a real job to do). It feels like after the re skin loads just sooo slow now.

    I'm mostly a lurker, do like reading down posts and seeing who is communicating on here. Now that I'm finally working on my car after years of neglect, it's tough to find good threads with working links/updated methods/approaches. Still thankful for the community. Might have to check out the FB page for the marketplace. I'm trying to buy parts but the parts for sale section is kinda dead...
