Getting frustrated

Recommended Posts

goose89

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

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
