    OK..the other thread was closed. Let's keep this one civil.

    BB has been running slow (off and on) for days now. This isn't the regular slowness (it has never been fast), but something is definitely causing things to slow down.

    When BB is slow or unavailable so are the other sites in the network BaptistMoms, Fighting Fundementalists, etc.

    Can someone that is in charge please look into this? It's getting unbearable. When it takes me 10 minutes to post a message (after I've typed it), there is definitely something wrong. It's to the point that I'm going to stop visiting until the problem is solved.

    I agree that it is slow. Right now it seems peppier so maybe there aren't as many people on. But it has been unbearably slow lately.

    The unavailable is what I'm getting more often than slow. When I can get on, it seems to be running fine.

    Sorry folks, we have had to do some major work which was killing the servers. All should be well from here on out.

    I've gotten so frustrated with the slowness of the BB that I've given up and left. I'm on several Christian Web sites and don't have that problem anywhere except here. Just now I had to click "submit" twice in order to submit a reply; it didn't work the first time.

    The speed is back to normal now.

    One thing I learned by accident. It's now more difficult to submit duplicate posts.

    Well, I will live with the changes, but was the old look broken? If not, why was it fixed? Also, it keeps logging me out after a few min away!!!

    The gray is much easier on the eyes...thanks. Wish it could have remained the bluish color, but it is much better than the white.

    Andrew, I love the color, it is so much better! Thanks!!

    But it is still running slow even now. Honestly, I got up from my computer, went to the kitchen to get a snack, and came back to my office and the BB still hadn't loaded!!! This was today (Tuesday), so wonder if some upgrading of servers needs done or some tweaking somewhere??? (I don't know about these things, just guessing, lol). But anyway, it's really hard to moderate when it loads so slow. (Where's that violin smiley when you need it, lol). Oh, hey, BTW, seriously, can we have the violin smiley??? We could use it a lot around here with all the whining. :laugh:

    It's still slow for me too, particularly when I hit the "post reply", "quote" or "quick" button.

    as requested: Windows6XP and connecting from server at 50.7.......still getting blank page when starting and switching threads or waiting to post anything.

    I have cleared my system and done disk clean up and run a program called Regcure,,,it is supposed to clean everything up.

    If it is any consolation, the same thing is happening at Christianforum.com, another chat site I visit, but it takes so long to see the forums, I virtually gave up and only visit once a week.

    Cheers, and thanks for every effort. I appreciate it can't be easy.

    Jim

    Guys, the BB is taking 1-2 minutes to load an individual page.

    It's slow enough that I'm getting tired of waiting.

    What can be done? Is this the new BB speed? If it is, I'm afraid numbers will plummet...

    Everything is working fine now.

    Thank you, Andrew, for working through this. I appreciate the hours you must have put in.

    Cheers, and bless,
