I must say that I really, really enjoy frequenting these forums. The maps are beautiful and inspiring.
This makes it a shame that the forum takes forever to load (It's slower than my E-Mail). It takes a good five to seven seconds to load any page on this site, whereas it takes a fraction of a second to load something such as a Google search, FaceBook, high-resolution images, etc.

I'm not sure what the cause is, but it's somewhat frustrating.

The other issue I'm having is with logging in. Here's what it looks like on my computer:

I'm not sure why it does this, but I have to zoom in to 125% page size to get the "Remember Me" checkbox and text out of the way, just so that I can hit the Log-In button. It's cluttered and messy, too.

It's making these forums a pain to use - which is a shame.
I'm not sure if it's on my end or the sites. Is there any way I could fix this?
