For the past couple of weeks, this board has been running very slow for me. (It's not my computer, because everything else is running fine.) It takes a long time to load, and each time I click on a section or a thread, etc. it takes much longer than normal to come up.

Any idea why? Anyone else finding the same problem? I feel sorry for anyone without fast internet! If I still had dial-up, I'd be throwing my computer out the window.......or I'd quit coming here.

I don't think it's just you, Elaine. I've had that slow trouble with the Dr. Quinn Forum lately and a little bit on this one too. ATM it's being fine for me.

I don't know, but may be it is for the big size of picture? Question

Thanks, ladies. At least it helps to hear that it's not just me. LOL

I wondered about all the new pictures that have been posted recently--some have been rather large--but then I couldn't imagine that they would cause the entire board to be slow. I could understand a thread with many or large pictures taking a little longer. But everything seems to be slow for me here....but ONLY here. I've had no problems on any other boards.

Hmmmmm........

No idea, I've not had a problem. Maybe the server is a bit slow for some reason. I can imagine sometimes pictures might slow things down a bit. I certainly HOPE noone stops coming because it's a bit slower though for a bit Crying or Very sad

Sorry Elaine, speed has been fine for me on this end. I hope whatever the issues is though, you can get it resolved. Good luck!

It has been fine for me too. Deapite of the fact that my connection is really slow, but I am not going to change it because it includes the cable TV with the channel that airs Dr. Quinn. Very Happy

Well, I may not be alone, but I'm definitely in the minority, so maybe I'll just take a few days "vacation" from here, and see if it works better when I come back.

Oh, my goodness, this thread was from a year ago! I have no problems with this forum now, even though my visits are much less frequent.
