Yes, it has happened more than once for me in the " This guy is shameless using the Logo of the RPF! Paging Art!" thread as well as the "broadway Belle gown wip" thread. A couple others too, but I didn't make a note of them.
EyeofSauron, I am going to guess there are two different issues here. The Non-Recent picture thread is full of externally linked images, so it is a very long loading thread and if any of the images have an issue, you could see a problem.
Arwyniel, I am still trying to replicate your problem via the iPad.
You switched servers about a week ago, right? I don't think I've had he problem since then. I was just able to view the Belle thread and others I had not been able to see as well. I don't know if that solved the problem or not, but I'm happy!
I'm having the same problem. Just getting the site to load is troubling. Laptop, desktop, using IE or Firefox.. Most of the time the ads will load then stop. The rest of the page will not load. It took me five tries just to get this thread to fully load.
