    This article/page with all the flash content (videos) takes about 10-15 seconds from starting to load the page before i can even scroll and use the page.

    Which is a shame when its the most visited article.

    I dont know if the article need all those videos, i just want to say it makes it quite slow. Dont think i have seen an article on SUMO that loads slower yet.

    You're right about the page load time. We're still trying to figure out ways to improve this article since for most new users, it's the entry point to SUMO. It's probably going to have a different format than a typical KB article.
