    I need to vent. I cannot seem to post any replies without waiting 5-10 min for the board to respond. I am so frustrated I could spit. I have been wanting to tell several how pretty their quilts are and I can't. Now I see they took my regular status away and that is not fair. I've been trying. I think it stinks. I guess now I can get something done here at home instead of being on the board so much. I'm gonna miss it but oh well. Right now I'm at a loss for words. :cry:

    Wow, and I thought I had it bad because my replies have been taking 10 seconds! (Used to be 2 seconds.)

    Edit: Seems to me the board is faster tonight. This post took about 3 seconds, plus opening posts seems to be back to normal time. Maybe, just maybe.......

    Guess I am lucky, it is a little slower but not much for me... Seems to be faster past couple of days. COMPAIRED to first day. :) Hope things get better for you. I know if I seem to be to slow I reboot and it seems to hlep some. Also certain times of day it is slower than others. (for me)

    I'm in Houston and my QB is crawling or at least was around 8pm. It's 1 am here now and it's much faster. Don't know if it was so slow because there were many of us on or what. It actually went down while I was online - seemed like a crash to me. Hopefully it's fixed now. Here's hoping!

    I've had so many problems connecting that things time out more often than not. It has taken more than 50 seconds most of the time to connect or open a thread, or a reply, and I frankly can't sit around for hours waiting on a slow server. I know that the problem isn't my computer, because I don't have any problems when I open other tabs to other sites.

    The double and triple posts are a pain also!! The most recent server upgrade sure did break what wasn't broken to begin with, apparently.

    Crabbypatty - The loss of your regular status probably has nothing to do with the change to a new server. Try to go and read the rules of the board. I know it explains this status. SOmetimes if you do not post enough in two weeks it changes and all you have to do is have fun and post more things and chat. GOod luck. I am lucky to have had no issues but I went to PAtriceJ's topics and read what she has posted many times to do to our computers to speed things up and even though I've had no probelms from them, my computer is faster.
    BTW you can also go to Rhonda or someone's ebooks and purchase one for a good price, and you will be a COMmunnity benefactor" and it never changes. HUGS♥♥
    You can always ask a moderator to check your status too and they can tell you why it changed. Easy solution. :) :)

    I was having the same issue....I thought it was my computer at first but all other sites were working fine. It seems to be working better today.

    I'm having no problems with speed. My problem is when I reply to something in posts on a compleltly different page and therefore makes no sense to the person reading it. (Like in a word game I have been playing)

    I'm with gaigai, why "fix it" when it's not broken. Many times I have been unable to open anything, so I come back later and am able to, but when posting to a topic, it's a whole lot slower than it used to be, although I don't have time to fix dinner. But, I guess that's a good thing, since we'll spend more time quilting instead of being on here. LOL This is the first time I've posted today, and it does seem to be a lot faster than previous. Thank you, Admin.

    It's not about a storm. I totally agree. SO MUCH FOR MAKING IT BETTER- NOT!!! I have to click on a topic 2-3 times before it will open. Then I too give up trying to post a pic or respond.

    I love this site, but is now very frustrating :(

    I've done this & "community benefactor" didn't ever appear. But I decided I don't care...no matter what my status says, I'm here & not going anywhere.

    I notice under your name it says you are a regular here. The board seems much better then it has been.
    We should be patient, with our admin. She is doing the best she can...using a new server as I read. I am willing to wait, as she gets everything in place.

    I suggest contacting admin when you have problems with accessing and response.

    I did and got a response. As with anything that changes, things need to be worked out. And you cant fix it if you dont know where the problems exist.

    If we can't access the board, we certainly can't access Admin. And after the fact (usually long after, because I've given up for the day) doesn't help.
