I cant be the only one with this problem? MDC is soooo slow to load its painful. Has been for the last day and a half I think? I know 2 others have asked me if it was just them, so I dont think its my connection :LOL I'm on a cable modem but MDC takes almost a full minute to load every page?

We had a server crash preceded by slow/no loading of pages yesterday but only for about a half hour.

I'm not having any problem at all. Could it be a US network problem?

I wouldnt think so as I only have problems with this site. All my other sites/boards load just fine. I just timed how long it took to load this page ... 1 min 50 seconds. I'd hate to be on dial up right now :LOL

I guess to be more clear.. what I get is the top of the page loads... all the way up to the top banner. Then it hangs there for like a minute and a half before the rest of the page loads.

This site has been really slow to load up for me as well. I am in Canada and I have a cable modem. I actually washed several dishes while waiting for this page to load.

Same problem but I can trim it a little:

If I click the stop icon when it pauses near the end, then I cut off a chunk of time and still get the whole page--it even still drops to the last post. Maybe I'm cutting off advertising loading at the side edges where it doesn't even fit on my screen anyway?

It's sooooo sloooooow........

It's definitely a mdc problem, I'm having no problem with any other sites. I'm on DSL and it is taking several minutes to load a page. It improved periodically during the day, but is slow again now.

In fact, I only logged on to try to find out what is going on. Hope it's sorted out soon!

Ok still REALLY slow this AM. The ads, of course :, come right up but the balance of the page is taking over 45 seconds, sometimes as much as a minute to load. I am not having any issues with other sites.

Cynthia- any more news??

Yup, very slow here, I'm in Canada with high speed DSL. At first I thought it was the computor but went to some other sites and they were pretty normal. Its been kind of frustrating, hope things work out soon.

MI/USA here with 1.5MB download via DSL but MDC is loading horribly painfully slow for me too. I jumped right here to see if others had the same issue. All other sites load quick just like normal for me.

Okay, I'm glad I'm not going insane.....

Yup, I am having the same problem, too, only with MDC. All the other sites I visit have normal loading times.

We just got a new computer, and I thought perhaps there was some issue there; but I see now that it is an issue with MDC.

MDC has been painfully slow for me for at least this entire weekend. It seems every few days there are periods of time where MDC loads very slow, and this one has lasted for quite awhile now

I came here to find Cynthia's siggy so I could follow her link to subscribe to the pay version and see if its faster.

Now it will take me 5 minutes to get back to her post :LOL

Chiming in too. Has been virtually unreadably slow for the last couple of days for me. All other sites seem to be loading at normal times.

In the US, with a cable modem.

I'm in California, and internet as a whole is moving slowly. MDC is horrible, I have DSL at work and it's my only joy while I'm here. And now it's more aggravating than anything. At home forget it, I have dial up and it's computer abuse with a baseball bat time.

I noticed the delay started a few days ago when the new home page for mdc went up?? anybody else? is it just my imagination? or is it connected somehow...also the ads would not link to where they were supposed to it would just link me to the home page again!

I am getting so frustrated with the speed here its driving me bonkers, all my other sites and groups are ok ..just this one is sloooooooow, glad to see it was not my imagination!

Is there something that can be done to fix this?
