Why are you in the chat box by yourself every week or so?

WUS has a 5 second or so delay when loading pages, has for a while. Anything beyond that may be related to your browser, firewall, modem or router.

It has to be the myriad of ads. Dozens per page.

Try the Tapatalk app for mobile viewing. Use Chrome in desktop with an ad blocker installed.

It's not messing up for me, but is just a bit larger than normal. If you go to his profile, though, it's huge. There must be some issue with the forum resizing images as some had the same issue in WURW.

Get AdBlock, and see if that changes anything. Obviously it won't get rid of all the ads on WUS, but should considerably reduce the amount of them displayed.

If you're using Chrome, I'd recommend UBlock Origin instead of AdBlock. Uses way less memory.

Might try posting an invite to chat in the general forum. Around this place talking is a sport. Luckily not a blood sport.

Wus has always been slow for me but yesterday was the worse. Just thought it was my crappy comcrap connection. Ping and latency were both very high.

I went to WUS to recover an old account not too long ago.

After the first page loaded I decided it was a bad job and gave it up. There are literally more ads than content.

Conjurer goes there for the "want to be made whole" series and that's all the WUS I need.

Watchuseek is like literally watching a virus spread, the amount of clickbait shit they've sprayed all over every single rendered page. And the content is even more vapid ("can I wear a ROLAX while massaging my anal sphincter with wet Play-doh")

WUS is a great selling tool with the help of Watchrecon. Lots of eyes see the sales posts.
Well worth the membership for that benefit alone.

Agreed. I have a soft spot for shepherds, particularly black ones. Reminds me of my own all-time best friend.

I do have a high-speed internet connection here at home, but loading Your doggy avatar took a
bit more than a second. The size of that thing is 1,57 MB. Sorry to be so blunt, but inconsiderate blokes like You clog up the internet with total useless traffic. Assuming You have been watching threads in WUS, where You have posted Yourself, I would like to say, You don't deserve any better ;-).

^^ Not his fault, the forum should be resizing or preventing upload of that avatar. We have had issues here with some users seeing full size images in other threads as well.
