Kudos once again for the speed pursuit - this is rarely seen recently ... These are the stats upon clicking on "User Control Panel" page.
Yeah, good job. Forum is running a lot more smoothly now with really good page load times, for me at least. There are a few things that can be done to make it even better (and improve SEO as well as Google does judge a site based on it's loading and rendering speeds).

If you click on the mobile button at the top right of the page then you'll get some more suggestions. Most are quick fixes.
One thing that I would have liked to have seen, but fully appreciate that it's a big job, is a reactive page layout so that the site works more effectively across a wider range of monitor sizes. I have large high resolution monitors and a 17" laptop and the site feels like it's only using a narrow slice of the screen as it's been designed for the typical lowest common denominator. A reactive layout would have allowed you to design for a higher resolution screen but still have the site scale down to smaller screens - even all the way down to mobile. There's several frameworks and helper libraries for doing this, my personal preference is http://cssgrid.net/
. If you fire up their website and start resizing the window you can see it dynamically re-layout the website depending on how wide you make the window.
