Because biscuits tell us the square root of bugger all...

TheWeeBabySeamus1 Wed 18-May-16 12:49:07

Same here. And my active conversation page keeps coming up empty until I refresh a few times confused

Something dodgy is definitely afoot...

I've had three biscuits in a row, something is up.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Wed 18-May-16 13:23:07

Yup, me too, and it won't let me post.

Let's see grin

The site is running like treacle here, practically unusable. Chrome on mac.

Try using the mobile site as a stop gap? I've not had any biscuits etc...

No problems with it on the iPhone safari

Flash Shockwave keeps crashing and freezing so I can't use MN without waiting ages for pages to load or scroll.

Active keeps coming up blank, or with biscuits.

I have problems with lag when typing or moving my cursor.

The whole site is really slow. It's not happening on other web pages.

It's driving me potty.

Well. we've been fiddling around with the font size to make it slightly larger and more readable. There's a whole thread about it here.

We had a few glitches which meant that while most Talk threads were displaying nicely, any that were accessed via Threads I'm On or Threads I'm Watching looked really tiny. Hopefully we've sorted this issue now.

In the meantime, we've had a wee problem with biscuits. sad Not sure if you've seen the other threads that have been knocking around, but you're not the only ones finding biscuits all over the site.

Our Tech team put in a fix this afternoon and it seems that for most of you, the problem has been solved.

MrsLettuce, has the site been slow for you all day?

MrsLettuce Wed 18-May-16 20:39:29

No, not at all. Is only since I put the children to bed. Maybe 7pm UK time.

MrsLettuce Wed 18-May-16 20:40:31

Also, what sidge said about lag and stuff. Making me want to pull me teeth out.

AlistairSim Wed 18-May-16 20:43:29

Thanks, Dawn thought it was my eyes.

MrsLettuce Wed 18-May-16 20:47:18

Suddenly much, much better!

Iflyaway Wed 18-May-16 20:47:42

Phew... thought I'd been hacked... grin

Thankfully got some real biscuits around....

GreenBeans17 Wed 18-May-16 22:47:06

I was having problems on the desktop site confused

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 18-May-16 22:50:58


Suddenly much, much better!

Glad to hear it. smile

We think the problem was mostly on the desktop site. Are you still having problems tonight, GreenBeans?

MrsLettuce Wed 18-May-16 22:57:03

Mmm, tuns out it's on and off really. Seems the longer I'm on a page the worse it gets, until it just totally stops responding.

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 18-May-16 23:04:19

Sorry to hear that, MrsLettuce.

If it's any consolation, the site's playing up for me too tonight sad

Slow to load, keeps crashing and generally being a pain. I'm on Chrome/Windows 10 on the desktop site, fwiw.

Will let Tech know that some of us are still having problems!

MrsLettuce Thu 19-May-16 21:05:45

Much as I hate to moan, the site is still as bad now for me as it was yesterday evening . It has been all day. Dreadful. Lag. Lag. Lag. Flash thingy crashing. Unresponsive. All sorts.

Is it just me?

JonSnowsBeardClippings Thu 19-May-16 21:09:14

My font is still tiny in certain places. Hard to read.

Janefromuptheshops Thu 19-May-16 21:14:11

I love the way HQ asks 'has it been like that all day'

Like we just sit around on MN all day...who would do that?

Me. That's who.

MrsLettuce Thu 19-May-16 21:17:30

yy, the fonts and stuff are still needing work here and there but things seem to be moving along with that.

I just want to be able to load threads, scroll a bit and maybe type something without crazy lag.

I don't type very fast and my screen is maybe 7 - 20 characters behind when I type, 3-5 seconds from clicking somewhere in the post I'm typing for the cursor to move.
Lag when scrolling too.
The longer a page is open the worse the issues get until it just stops working.
Pages never stop loading either (well they do if you leave them open for ages and ages in a tab by accident)

thats funny you are making the font bigger i'm spending my days, zooming out as the font is too damn big!!
