Minutes to load UK - & where is it?

What on Earth has happened to the speed of loading UK observations? It must be running close to 2 minutes for more than a week. It will hardly be encouraging participation. On those lines, WHEN is someone going to correct the main page, which brazenly heads itself UK & IRELAND LATEST OBSERVATIONS but isn’t that at all but everything & the box it came in.

The issue has been discussed at length elsewhere in the forum (e.g. ‘S l o w…’), and apparently the ‘fix’ isn’t easy. The recent loss of an experienced programmer probably hasn’t helped.
You’re not the only one to find it frustrating: I have missed many posts because I couldn’t load the main observations at all. Together with the Google Maps ‘bug’, it’s caused me to lose my enthusiasm: but it must be disheartening for the (apparently few) iSpot admins who do interact with the users, too.

On the other hand, it is easier than trying to get an appointment with a GP!!!

Now that is true! It does seem to have perked up a lot at present. I shall keep my fingers crossed.
