Default Cruisemates Has Gone Loco de Coco!

Has anyone else noticed that the site is operating very slowly the past few days? Or that we seem to be getting multiple posts of the same post on many threads?

Or am I just crazy..........?!

Dean

Hi Dean,
Yea, I noticed it too, I thought it was just me and my connection. Glad to hear its not just me. Doesn't seem to matter if you are just reading through the boards or posting, but posting takes forever.

Seeing as I just started posting again after a long time away, I thought it was just me!

Charter gets really funky with me on what I get to see and not see so I thought that was the reason! Plus I'm still not used to this laptop either.

I've noticed it too especially when I try to post. It will go thru the process then when I see the word "done" in the lower left hand corner for more than a few seconds, I know it's acting up. So instead of chancing a double post by clicking "submit" again, I just copy my post, close out the thread, and open it again. I click "post reply", paste my reply again, then submit. So far, no double posting, but it is a nuisance.

I do not get the email notifications anymore when a new post has been added to a thread. Don't know if anyone else has this issue?

However it could be my computer after all I do have the Computer from Hell!

CQ - beg to differ about the computer from H#*#**#!!!! I've got one at home and the one at work is very particular - our server is getting to the point where just sending stuff to another office takes all day!!! or you may not get it at all -

I did notice Friday when posting, it came up twice and I wasn't sure how to delete the second so I apologize to those who had to read the same post twice!

I don't get the e-mail notifications either, I thought it was our mail change.

Any others NOT getting e-mail notifications when repling to a post?

To delete your post if you choose, I have deleted my good morning thread, sometimes, if someone beat me to it:. Go to the little box in the upper right corner, and click on it..poof it's gone....:)

I think we are all under scrutiny to see if we can practice what we preach. PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE. I have seen that once I hit the submit button and just sit there and let it do its thing, my post will show up only once (even though it takes forever). If I hit that submit button again while it initially appeared that it didn't take, that is when it will show up twice.

I have always had problems with this site running slow. No matter what computer I use. Could be my work computer, or my home doesnt matter. Thats why I dont come on here that much. I dont like to have a blank screen while loading.

I have been off the site since April 10th as there was some kind of virus operating that my computer was blocking. This is the first time my computer has allowed me to access Cruisemates since then. I don't know if this is another facet of the same problem or not. Probably something entirely different......
