Hi James

It seems be taking me for ever to navigate around the SE1 website (its taking time for this message to type). The slowness and hanging seems to have started as a result of Google adds now all being videos. Is there a way I can switch these adds off?

We haven't changed anything recently, so I don't know what might be causing this.

Hopefully the new mobile-friendly design of the site is only a few weeks away - it's possible you may find that works better.

I would respectfully ask that you don't use ad-blocking software as this site can only exist through the revenue from advertising.

Are you absolutely sure that you're not seeing the same problems on websites other than this one?

It's just this site. I also get a message that comes up telling me that "the script on this site has stopped working"

Hi bmovie

Please could you let us know whether you are still experiencing these problems now that the new design is live?

Hi James

Much better now, thanks. It may be due to the new design (very nice!) but also the video ads have gone

I was using this forum from time to time as a guest user and I must say, the site looks and performs a lot nicer now after the overhaul. Great job admin
