Site Layout Question
I am experiencing something that, judging by the lack of complaint from anyone else, may only apply to me... Perhaps there's a fix?
Here's the issue:
Every single time I do anything, The Entire page posts back/redraws
This takes about 1 second. But:
First, the framework is painted, including a graph paper ruled section for "sponsors"
Then, the Sponsors list appears, Incorrectly CENTERED on the screen...
Then, in time, it moves where it belongs
Then, the forum/page data appears
VERY annoying to have the ads, with the (ARE YOU KIDDING ME) flashing text & flapping bird, right in my face all the time.
and it seems to be the case that the postback is actually DELAYED until the Sponsor data completly re-loads
Is this an issue I can fix?

We have thousands of users and I do not think I've gotten this complaint before.
1. What OS/Browser are you using?
2. Can you attach a snapshot to your post?

Due to size (Only 2.3 MB....but) I can't push it up.
am enclosing a frame (But the movie shows things a LOT better...)
Yes, use a more modern browser, possibly with AdBlock running.

Due to HIPPA rules, I can't change the browser. nor can I access YouTube (Yeah, I know)
I wonder if everyone has been suffering quietly (Unless they have an up to date version of AdBlock)

Reason: I wonder
IE9 is less than 2% of browser usage right now.
Gotta love rules like that. In order to keep health records secure...we'll lock down on an outdated and insecure browser! Makes sense right?
The way the styles are served up on the site is done in a very bad way. I'm looking at my chrome debugger, and I see the style sheet is served up via PHP. This will generally cause people with slow connections to not load the style sheets properly since there is a small delay for the PHP to generate the style sheet each time.
Best practice for CSS is to not generate it each time, and have it served up via a CDN. It's also cheaper to do so since you're not running CPU cycles to reprint out the CSS for every single page load.
Actually IE9 has probably around 40% of all IE users. About 9% overall. Reason IE9 is so high is you can't have IE10 or 11 on Windows XP. If you're talking about government systems, and other systems that need to certify the OS, it's running at high as 80% in those ecosystems. Generally certifying OS for government use takes couple years, so they barely have Windows 7 allowable in many government organizations.

Reason: This site mangles tabs and spaces... sigh...
IE9 is 1.8% of our total inbound.
W3 schools puts it at 2.3% of overall.
Internet Explorer Browser
But everseeker, if your own inbound shows IE9 is just 8% of traffic. It is ludicrous to lock down your testing organization to that browser.
