Every other Mumsnet page loading reeeeealllly slowly - don't think it's my computer.

I come on to Mumsnet, look at a couple of pages, then click to another (no particular page) and it takes an AGE to load.

I don't think it's my computer exactly - if I click onto, say the BBC it loads immediately, then back to Mumsnet and it's slow again. If I try and try eventually it will load at normal speed and I get a couple of normal speed page changes till it does it again.

Could it be a new advert? Has anyone else had this?

It's just done it to me. It's like it's having to think about loading the page.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 30-Oct-12 14:43:17

OK. Did you notice which ads were showing when it finally loaded?

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 14:45:26

nope, i don't think it is linked to ads now

yes, changing a page/commenting takes an age

and it's definitely MN problem, have logged in on 2 differing browsers and is still slow

Yep - I thought I had got a nasty virus too!! First page loads ok, then next page takes ages and ages (actually quicker to log out and log in again!!). I am quite relieved that I'm not the only one

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 14:48:35

my screen is blank when it happens, white over, so can't tell which ads are playing, HelenMNHQ

DazR Tue 30-Oct-12 15:04:15

I have noticed it says connecting to and even if that helps. Getting so fed up I may have to disappear for a day or so....... I also use Firefox - would this be the problem??

That P&O ad on the MN home page doesn't even fit on my laptop screen, it goes off the edges. confused

Google chrome here.

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 15:10:02


just noticed 'waiting for skimresources...' on chrome

'waiting for cdnmn' or similar on firefox

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 30-Oct-12 15:29:03

OK. We'll try to work out what's occurring.

Do let us know if it gets any better.

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 18:03:29


it seems to be better - what did you do to tech Helen?

less more gin?

DazR Tue 30-Oct-12 18:39:06

More whispering - it DOES seem better - fingers crossed.

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 18:41:28

not brilliant though, but better...

DazR Tue 30-Oct-12 18:44:50

Actually DameMargot I agree - it STILL isn't brilliant is it - back to the drawing board please MNHQ

iMum Tue 30-Oct-12 18:50:17

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 30-Oct-12 20:02:48

Still? <whimpers, holding Tech in half-Nelson>

Sparklingbroomstick Tue 30-Oct-12 20:03:37

All ok again here. smile

DameMarghoulFountain Tue 30-Oct-12 21:01:16

Been doing it to me too, just happened a couple of minutes ago.

Oh, thank goodness it's not just me! My wise words posts are taking ages to send as well. Also getting the white screen.

DameMarghoulFountain Wed 31-Oct-12 07:53:32

Worse this morning.

Seriously contemplating returning to real life.


NewKateMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 31-Oct-12 11:12:27

BalloonSlayer- but...real life is just as slow and frustrating! And there you don't get wonderful halloween themed emotions! smile

<serious face> We are sorry that the site is being so sluggish. Tech are aware, and we will try to sort it out asap.
