For exactly the reason you say. Speed.
The old one was getting thrashed, pages taking forever to load.
We tried EVERYTHING to make PHPBB go faster, everything. So much time wasted.
This new one is on super-fast node.js for the win! It just took a LOT of work to put it together.
But here it is! So far, not too bad.

I admin another phpbb forum, but the site owners seem to be pretty good at keeping it moving. We do a lot of work keeping spam out and trimming dead items. That helps but it's not as fast as this one. Instantaneous accurately describes this one!
Keep up the good work.
Thanks Rudiger, we really appreciate the work. PHPBB is certainly nice for its features, but I'd much rather have a working (and very quick btw) forum than an almost inaccessible one :)
And as a bonus, the support subdomain seems to be working again too.
