    Been visiting this site a couple of times recently yet no one seems to be around but if there still exist a human being in here;

    1. Is there exist a Discourse forum that is not super slow on first load?
    2. Is there exist a flat skin for WBB? All the skins I saw are prehistoric.

    Edit: This forum is also somewhat slow. I must wait a long time for the login option to display.

    Slow.
    Akamai Mobitest puts it at 7.47s average (Galaxy S5).
    It's even slower than vB5.

    I had a managed Discourse instance running on AWS and was stunned by the slowness of the first load, not only on desktop but even worst on Android. Subsequent load is fast even when logged in, but the first load - God, have mercy. I deleted the instance out of disappointment.


    PS: Why is this site also slow nowadays?
