Anyone Else Having Slum Problems?

Post by Snowth Poogle on Wed Jul 08, 2015 9:17 pm

I've been noticing an increase in lagging, downtime, and crashes with the Slums for a week or two, and wanted to know if anyone else has been having this problem? Not that I'm hoping anyone has, but itd give me some relief to know that maybe, for once, the problem isn't with just me because of my technically outdated browser. Yeah, I'm still using IE10: I tried upgrading to IE11, but it sucks - they've made tabbed browsing default and you can't disable it, and I've always hated tabbed browsing, it's so cluttered, disorganized, and confusing. Never been a fan of Firefox, they always distort site layouts and appearances (none of the websites I've worked on in the past ever looked right in Firefox), and I'm certainly not going to show any further support to Hitler -uh, I mean Google- by switching to Chrome. So I've been hanging onto IE10 for as long as I can, and I can tell it's dying out: Facebook crashes all the time anymore, and lately so has YouTube and Gmail, and now, as I said, I'm noticing increased lagging and downtime with the Slums, which unless it's also happening to others, I'm going to assume is also a sign that IE10 is on its last legs.

And apparently, Microsoft is in the process of phasing out Internet Explorer entirely. I swear, I can't have nothin'!

Yes. Its been freezing one me. I thought initially it was an internet connection problem but other sites were working. Chatbox stopped on me last night talking to popucult temporarily. I cannot always open a page and the connection times out. Other than that its fine Very Happy LOL

Mac once you go  mac you never go back XDXDXD

I use firefox because I actually prefer the layout. Chrome freezes too much on me. Mind you I was using facebook alot

I got a good deal of lag yesterday, in addition to the occasional "down for maintenance" notice from Forumotion.  Chat froze up on a couple of occasions when we swung by for a little visit.  After doing a little research, I found out that it was common to several Forumotion domains for a good part of the day, yesterday.  Aside from that isolated incident, I haven't really noticed anything too out of the ordinary.  I also use Firefox exclusively, so that might have something to do with it.

Thankfully, everything seems to have been resolved on their end for the time being.

YUP
All good, Yes I stick with firefox, provided I keep the popup block and delete the cookies at the end of each session, I do know there is an option to delete the cookies on this forum too. I do not know if that would help much though?

Firefox R0X, s1s.

But yeah, Forumotion tends to lag from time to time, whether it's because of maintenance or what-have-you. It's pretty annoying when it happens. Evil or Very Mad

Oh, poop...for the past few weeks, the "portal" button underneath the banner has been gone, and now the log in at the bottom of the home page is gone too! I used to just log in on the home page, but now I actually have to click the log in button underneath the banner and get in that way...

Anyone else experiencing buttons that go AWOL?

Hmm, it appears that the portal link has vanished from my toolbar, too.  I suspect Forumotion did some maintenance and certain things were automatically reset in the process.

No worries, though.  Problem solved.  Smile
