Sorry techs, but at 12 noon it is taking around 30 seconds to load a thread and 42 seconds from pressing post to message being shown

and that's just one count.

The site is really too slow at the moment for it to work.

Anna8888 Wed 10-Sep-08 12:03:44

It's working just fine for me...

misdee Wed 10-Sep-08 12:03:51

Twiglett Wed 10-Sep-08 12:04:28

Ceolas Wed 10-Sep-08 12:04:43

Cies Wed 10-Sep-08 12:08:17

I agree. Tis very slooooooow. Last night was worse though. I also gave up and went to read a book shock

WideWebWitch Wed 10-Sep-08 12:08:21

I am TOYING with the idea of doing some work. Please make it faster so I don't have to

NorkyButNice Wed 10-Sep-08 12:12:38

Oh yes, last night was really slow, I thought it was just our internet connection but everything else seems to be working fine. Still a bit slow now, but better than it was.

Sort it out! grin

MuffinMclay Wed 10-Sep-08 12:13:15

Very slow for me too. Gave up on it last night and this morning and was forced to dabble with RL. All other sites I use are working fine.

Hello. Sorry things are slow.

I've asked the Techs about this and they're looking into it. (When they've finished talking about particle colliders and black holes. yawn...)

YetMoreTech (MNHQ) Wed 10-Sep-08 13:00:37

The server is not busy at the moment. If more than a few people are finding it slow then the most likely suspect is a bad advert. The difficulty is telling which one. I've just loaded this thread a couple of dozen times and seen a variety of ads, none of which slowed it down.

If you find a page load is slow, make a note of which ads are shown when the page finally appears. The two likely culprits are the one at the top of the page and the one on the right of the postings. If we see a pattern emerge (i.e. everyone says "when it happens to me the advert for X appears afterwards") then we can get that ad removed.

RTKangaMummy Wed 10-Sep-08 17:31:29

IMHO & IME it is the T MOBILE one that making threads im on sloooooooooooow

random Wed 10-Sep-08 20:43:51

Its so slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow ..has been all week ..not that I've been on here that much blush

Anna8888 Thu 11-Sep-08 12:20:02

I bet Tech's hypothesis is right - that it's an ad - because here in France I don't get all the same ads as you lot (lots of French ones) and I have been having no problems at all.

n5rje Thu 11-Sep-08 12:36:12

Yes I agree very slooooooow last night (I gave up at about 9.45pm) and also earlier this morning but OK now - I'll check the adverts as requested

There might be something in the ad thing, I'm abroad too and so get different ads, like Anna, and I haven't had the same problems.

zippitippitoes Thu 11-Sep-08 12:49:02

what lapin said

it just goes blank or has a timed out page

and i have blocker too on my laptop

not my pc

and get the same on both

i did point out that you can often tell when it is happening because you get the evidence of multiple postings by different people on different threads

analyse when those occur and you will get some info
