Is it my imagination or are wordrounds loading up quickly today?

I think it was my imagination - the first three rounds of the day loaded so quickly, but I have just done a really quick round and got a time of 26 secs (at least 5 secs waiting). I wish they could fix this; next on Sploofus' list please- after checking quizzes and authoring wordpuzzles. Regards

For me some rounds load immediately, others will take up to 30 seconds. I don't even bother with those that take more than 10 seconds to load. Of course, I'm sure those are the rounds that I would have probably gotten 100% in 20 seconds! Okay maybe not!

It's been really slow for me for the past day or so. My rounds are taking an average of about 10-15 seconds longer than I'm used to, although there are occasional times when it seems to be normal. It surely doesn't feel abnormally fast for me, though.

I'm just speculating here, but it would seem to me that the pages dependant upon speed (i.e., the actual quizzes, WordRounds, QOTD, etc.) would load a lot faster if they were simpler and had fewer "fluff" elements.

For instance, I just noticed that during the really slow times the WordRound pages would open up partially and freeze when they got to the GoogleAds frame towards the bottom. Then, after a few seconds, the ad would would appear, followed a second or two later by the "Now Playing" list.

Now, I may be in the minority here, but I don't spend time reading the GoogleAds or the Now Playing list while trying to rush through a WordRound and finish it in under 30 seconds. They are useless elements of the page, which serve only to slow down the page processing.

Perhaps sploofus would consider streamlining the design of some of these "speed" pages by removing any unrelated dynamic elements which may slow down the page loading. Leave any non time-sensitive pages as they are, as I realize that advertising is important to the revenue of the site (although I resent paying a fee to be a Gold Member and still have to look at advertising, but that's another discussion).

What do you say?

Mine have been loading pathetically slow...thought I could have a little fun in between studying all day (no class today), but it's been too slow for me and I don't want to take too much time out to do all 10 rounds eveyr hour.
