I often can't reply on the forums unless I press ctrl+f5 to reload the page - otherwise it sits doing nothing when I submit. Also, I am asked to sign in, unless I am in the forums then it shows me signed in!Speed is chronically slow.
Click on my account link and get a page saying to press a different link instead.
It's very messy. It's getting to the stage now whereby it's almost unusable. As a software developer I find this really annoying.
I'm sorry you're having trouble, but please keep the comments coming. We are using them to work on some observed issues. We've done a fair amount in the background on performance, as there are a number of factors, and some more steps are in hand now. We're involving various parties in doing this.
The inconsistencies over sign-ins are because we have single sign-on across several sites. Our main site https://www.autism.org.uk/ manages sign-ons for both itself and this site https://community.autism.org.uk/ We have some issues to resolve with the expiry of those sign-ons; essentially, what you are describing is the sign-on expiring on the WWW site before it expires here on the Community, and arguably too quickly. You can sign on again if you need to go to a WWW page, such as My Account, but I agree that it is annoying. Different systems have different sign-on designs, and making them work consistently is more difficult than it can perhaps look, but we are aware of the issue.
Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience.
Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but I keep getting a totally black page when trying to load a thread, it does eventually work but thought I'd mention it
