Getting frustrated

7 posts in this topic

This isn't fishing related and I wasn't sure where to bring it up. First off, hat's off to everyone that is involved in keeping this site the best one for outdoors types like me. It's by far my favorite (most time spent on) site.

That said, the last few months, it seems that the site is often "sluggish" and takes quite some time to go from thread to thread. I thought it might be my computer, but I've experienced the slowness on several computers. Seems like the "Slowskies" have taken over.

Don't mean to complain, but it has been getting frustrating staring at a blank screen and waiting for the blue bar on the bottom to move. Better than before this site was around, but not as good as it could be, as has been in the past, though.

I've been noticing that too. It's probably due to the fact that there's alot of sportsman on this site right now. Because ice fishing season is here finally!

There has been some discussion in the "ice" forum. There has been some huge increases and members and traffic this fall and this has contributed to the slow down.

The admind have been working on this and I can say that it is 100% better today than it was on monday. There are several other reasons for the slowdown and its taking a while to weed through all the factors. I know its sped up for me and it keeps getting better every day. Hang in there.

Thanks for the replies. Hope things get better soon. It took nearly 10 mins to login and get a reply in. I hope the success / popularity of FM doesn't become it's downfall. I have no problem bouncing around other sites. I realize not as many people on them, but at least I can "travel" around without getting stuck. Very reminiscent of the dial-up days when I first started using FM. We can do better.

There always seems to be twice as many anonymous, sometimes three times as many.

I think Hanson hit the nail on the head in another thread. Peak times!

Between 8:30-9:45 am this morning, I was sailing free and clear. Now between 12:00 and 12:45 p.m. (lunch rush), is slowed way down again.

I just wait and came back later if need be. I think FM is worth waiting for.

On another note, I could see where this would be hard for members that like to peak on threads a lunch time. You only get about have time to read and respond, verses a normal day.

The powers to be will work it out. I would just be patient. I gets me to do some work for once at work. grin.gif

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
