There's been a big focus on page loading time here at allnurses.

Do you see a difference? Are the pages fast?

Please tell us your experience.

(IMPORTANT: We are not finished with optimizing our pages. There will be additional changes in the next few weeks. Go Speed Racer, Go Speed Racer, Goooo. )

My "average" vote for mobile isn't accurate. I rarely if ever access the site on a mobile device so I have not a clue how the page loading times are but the poll wouldn't let me not choose an option there. The desktop site does have a speedy load time!  I would imagine that milage on this may vary depending on a users equipment and internet provider

Well, yesterday the site was loading fast on the desktop. Today it's slow as molasses. I'm looking at "waiting for allnurses" for quite awhile in the browser progress bar. Seems to be at least 20 to 30 seconds to load a page. I have a Windows 10 desktop and am accessing AN on the latest build of Chrome just in case it's a problem with the OS or more likely the browser and not an issue on the AN side.

It is like the old dial up internet, or maybe not iPad friendly?

Gosh how spoiled we've become! Dial up...waiting, waiting and waiting some more all while listening to the modem dial and chirp and make heavens knows what other noises. I can still hear it in my head!  Then wait some more for a page to actually load. Pretty much everybody heard "you've got mail" and was actually excited to check what the mail was.  That was before the age of spam! Now if a page takes 20 seconds to load we're complaining about slow it is, in those days it took a couple of minutes if you were lucky.

The pages seem to be loading pretty well for me now, especially the transitions from say the "what's new" screen into a post. There are still a few areas that are a little slow, like being able to complete my profile. That being said, it's better now than it was last night for me. Last night, I couldn't get anything to go through (with completing my profile) and tonight I was able to get everything done.

On my cell phone it takes forever to load and the page shows up skewed... each word or 2-3 letters shows up on a different line. 

On my laptop its considerably faster than my phone but still takes more time than it used to.

UPDATE: We are making progress. We know what the issue is ... made some changes. We will continue monitoring things on our end to see how things go.

Thank you for your patience everyone. It's really appreciated. 🤩
