I almost bought a Hyundai Accent over the Rio for this exact reason. And thats a true story.

This is really the only Kia forum that caters to north american Kia owners. Aside from Streetkiaz which seems to be just a bunch of modders.

I dont get why this site needs so many ads. I like to visit car forums to talk about my cars, learn about my cars, etc. But this site is painful. I have to open threads in new tabs thats how bad it is. Perhaps people would become more interested in Kias if they had a good forum to visit. Not the joke of a forum known as kia-forums.com

Someone had to come out and say this. having said that, i will suffer through this and continue to post here. But as for whoever runs this site, you should probably not expect to make so much money off your venture. And/or switch to a new provider. Thanks

Response is a bit slow, maybe 9 seconds betwen screens, but there is a fair bit of data to search I guess. It's usually worth the wait. Google takes less than a second, so it can be done.

Google has a few ads. too, but after a while they become part of the scenery. I guess thay must work, but not on me.

Constructive criticism should be promoted - is this constructive criticism ?

Free forums such as this normally rely on income from advertising to keep them free.

Another option would be to PM site Admin.

Slow loading, maybe stop using an old computer or use some high speed, or get the porn off your computer, studies say if you look at a lot of porn, you get tons of spyware on your computer making it run uber slowly. Id say its your own computer as my internet loads almost every page instantly and out of the thousands and thousands of registered members here, this is the first complaint.

Stop complaining and use another site if you are not happy, no one is forcing you to be here.

I would leave this here, see how many "other" people are having this issue, I am not, and all the others here that replied to this, didn't mention it either.

Just a troll.

POSTER:
Its "this site is a joke"
NOT
"this site is largely a joke"

Its not in the intro section, its in the suggestion section.

this is not a suggestion, its a troll post, from a troll. We need a section for trolls LOL....

He's in Alberta BC and probably on a slow connection.
I have never had any problems with loading speed and the ads
pay for the servers and Internet connection. Plus AutoGuide needs to make a profit.
He just wanted to complain about something...

Hi ecobox,

I must agree with you that Hyundai Forums : Hyundai Forum loads much faster.
Is it server related? Might be...
Is it ads related? Could be...

What I know for sure - the site will load AFTER the last ad is ready to be loaded. Therefore, if some ads are on slow servers then our forum is slowed down, too.

As per number of ads. Yeah.... there are some, not so bad though comparing to some other free sites. Keep in mind that the site must be maintained. Mods get nothing. Really, we do not get paid at all. Admins - I guess they might get something, which depends on the site sponsors and other factors.

However, I find hard to believe that web site loading time was the main reason why you went with Hyundai...

I am accessing this site from Sri Lanka and has been doing so for the past 3+ years but do not find it overly slow. I have also developed blind eye towards ads and they do not bother me one bit. Compared to the wealth of information you find on this site and the helpful nature of most members I believe the shortcomings are a non issue.

Both ALBERTA & BC (British Columbia) are different provinces.... SO GET YOUR GEOGRAPHY CORRECT & stop insulting us Canadians with your ignorance.
Geek how did he insult you? I see not one insult.

I did not mean to create a problem with him or others.
His attack of anyone (including mods) does not bode well.. A correction would have been more than enough.
I stand corrected... Edmonton, Alberta. Copy and Paste grabbed the wrong things.
I deleted his post ... Next will be him for attacking others if he doesn't settle down.
