    I also don't agree how sending a bunch of requests is going to make it faster.. that's basically like many more people using the forum at the same time, which could only slow it. please don't do that. You don't pay the bandwidth... I do :-\
    Can you limit the number of incoming requests from any given IP?
    Just sending a packet back and forth (even if it's 30 times) shouldn't do too much for the bandwidth, but I could see it bogging down a server if it's already under load, a slower server, or everyone and their dog is doing this. Well, it seems like most people don't notice the benefit anyway, so there shouldn't be too much worry about this "catching on."

    that's true

    and no i've never seen an option for such a thing... Really, it shouldn't have to be a concern.

I don't know much... But that seems like quite a bit of traffic. lol
    WOW! That's impressive.

    Wow.. yeah that is a lot! I didn't think that many people came here.. even if they never do join.

    I guess you must have a faster connection than me.. or you could be closer to the server than I am, cuz it takes 3 seconds to load completely. It doesn't really matter though.

    oh, if you're going by the load bar... you're likely waiting for the advertisements... Those run on a rotating script or something so they show up a tad later (still not 3 seconds though).. but the forum is open ready to view/participate in immediately for me.
