It may be that I've added myself to a multitude of communities, but over the last several weeks, every techcommunity that I look at, including the homepage, seem to be loading very slowly. I've tried on Edge, Chrome, Firefox and different computers, with the same results.
Just an FYI :)

For me it's the past two years, not weeks :) It's the platform sadly, which seems to be very poorly optimized even with the limited amount of entries we are being presented with on each space/blog/etc.

I also have been complaining about performance and overall design of this site for a few years since i have started using it more often. One of my latest posts https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Community-Discussion/Can-t-change-email-for-notifications-her...
On mobile it's the worst. And i have switched to new Pixel phone with Android 9 and it's the same. Having to deal with page *loading* for a noticeable amount of time these days is unbelievable :)

After being annoyed again i have decided to capture a video about what i have to deal with on mobile here (sorry for a shaky camera, did this on the fly).
https://photos.app.goo.gl/daeaFoJ72Phvqhoz5 a bit long, but i wanted to show how reply buttons don't work and at the very end the whole site just stopped working. And the loading time, it's huuuge.
https://photos.app.goo.gl/Y47V4Biq9XoEwxZX8 this one is shorter, commenting in blog, i click into input window and it jumps out of focus, when you try to drag it it often hides the keyboard and you have to start over. And i just don't understand why we have to have this huge floating bar at the top covering everything. So i would be able to search or go to my profile at any point of time? Yeah, right..
And just to compare (again, video gets a bit skewed at the end, sorry) a forum i attend, Discourse, loads instantly, fluid as butter. Posting is in a blink of an eye. Discourse is by a small company. Why can't MS with billions of dollars have a somewhat normal platform for their Pro users? https://photos.app.goo.gl/AZ3WX2b1ckEGdEq58
