here lately, your server has been... shall we say... crapping all over my face.

Anyone else getting crapped on? Or is it just my computer?

No, it's not just you! I am getting so frustrated b/c it takes forever to post and often times I have to reload pages several time b/c the server "times out"! I'm about to give up. That is why I was in this forum, looking for answers and hoping it will be fixed!

Is it that the traffic is just too much for the server to handle?

Yea it's been tough because my comp is slow anyway so between the two, I don't have a chance. I thought it was getting resolved but I guess it hasn't. Thank you to those working in it though. I know its got to be frustrating!

I`ve only had that problem a few times, luckily. But MDC is totally worth it!!

Mods: Is this because the forum is "too big"? I mean, there must be millions of threads here, and well over 100,000 users?

Happening here too. MDC is the only place it happens but it's several times a day that I simply can't even get in.

Is it possible for things to improve? Is there a plan?

I get so frustrated that I give up and so it's often that I only read one post a day or so due to the server issues.

I'm usually not home during the day so my issues are primarily around 8pm-ish.

Yeah to all that. I often give up. No other site does it, just MDC, all the others load instantly, so I know it's not me.

I go to another site that is HUGE, with an ENORMOUS gallery of craft photos, and it either loads instantly or within 3 seconds. Go figure. But then I don't know much about the logistics of this stuff.
Hopefully we'll get an "official" answer to pacify us all back into MDC happiness.

I bet I`m jinxing it by saying this, but I don`t have this problem it seems? I HAVE had it, but only a few times. And not recently. Weird.

I'm right there with the rest of you. It's better than it was at the beginning of the year, but it is still *really* slow to load and I still get server errors fairly frequently.

Mods :, any idea on what the plan for improvement is? (is there one? Please :?)

It's an admin issue, far above our little mod heads. (It's actually a server issue, which is kinda a side step from the admins, but they're who have any information about the problems and potential resolutions.)

In the ultimate of ironies, I got a database error while trying to load this page.

Wait- I thought the admins were people and the server was a machine? Or is the server a bunch of people as well?

Yah, me too!
the last week it's been really slow, and I got a data base error as well.
today has been the worst tho.
it's come and go with me in the past with mdc, but now it seems at all times it's happening.
it used to be just at "high times" ... i.e. after the kids are in bed and all the moms are pounding away on their keyboards at mdc.

anyway, this isn't really a complaint. slow or not, i love this website and these moms. the only intelligent site on the web. period.!

Kids. I got two of 'em.
