I get so frustrated because I keep trying this site on different browsers to get going on a reasonable speed.

Last night I tried to post a topic that took time to put together. Then it came time to add an image and the whole thing froze up. Poof! My post disappears. It is not the first time. I am getting discouraged.

It took approximately 2 minutes just to post this. I held my breath, hoping it would not all disappear.

Yes I would and won't ask any more questions till it's fix.
Just coming here took forever. But I thought I would give it a try since it's you.

I am so frustrated Lulu. I finally found the place I want to be, but there are times I simply can't afford to sit for a minute, just to reply. I hate even having to wait several seconds to make a vote on a comment and often my raves up don't take. That frustrates me because I like to acknowledge people here that I have read them, even if I don't have a reply.

PLEASE FIX CHOOZLER!

I can help you with that. Just click on the bell icon up top. When it opens up, look at the bottom left of the box and select "See all notifications". Click on it and wait a few.....when it finally opens up, you want to click on the "DELETE ALL" on the top left.

Speed is not the issue for me here on Choozler. I'm willing to work around that.

There isn't enough diversity in opinions to spark debate and discussion. The way I see it, there's like eight of us in one camp and then there's one active opposing point of view in the other camp. Not super stimulating imo

The people on the right felt like they had been run off. Too much of the blocking crap going on.

I think speed is something a lot of people are NOT willing to work around if other sites are faster. I really want this place to take off and I do think it will make a difference if it is improved. I know I can talk more people into trying it if it wasn't so clunky.

The slowness of the site has been sporadic..for me. I've not tried to submit a post lately. but it would frustrate me too...if one I was working on just froze up and disappeared. That happened to me once here..too. I do agree also with Sir_Whatz about the current lack of diversity. It just isn't very interesting for me anyway. when most people on a site just agree with each other and try to make those who don't feel unwelcome.

I know I don't go to some other sites because I do think they are lopsided with the most aggressive people being alt right. I have seen people attacked, even when not expressing politics.

I sure would like to post a bunch of non political subjects if things were to ever pick up.

I thought SH was a bit lopsided to the so-called "right",,myself. I still enjoyed the site though. Amirite currently is too. I see people being attacked when not expressing what most would consider "politics". as well...many, many times.

SH was big enough to get lost in so to speak. Smaller sites like this one and Amirite really suffer if any group gets dominant. Political groups tend to be the most aggressive imho. I once belonged to group before SH and it was a true balance. Politics were hashed out everyday, but we felt balanced. I am still friends with conservatives and liberals from that site. We all still think we rawk because we always treated each other well at the end of the day. There was drama at times, but it never lasted and there were enough peace makers on there to help people make up with each other.

Piper, I was just attacked on that other site for posting a graphic about the guy who threatened to kill the Senators that voted against Kavanaugh. He went off on a tangent, cussed and called me names.... I think he was drinking, he's the guy that never makes any sense..... he needs a good swift kick in the buttocks. lol

I think one of the reasons we enjoyed SH, even though it was right-sided, was that there were a lot more people contributing daily. Same with Amirite until they ran off everyone with their troll nonsense.

I created a bookmark of the "Recently Active" so that is always my default page. But I completely agree with you on how that should be their default. I kept checking this site out before I joined, hoping to see new stuff. I honestly didn't know how to find it until I joined.

I believe that the change was made because some of the conservative members at the time were unhappy with the new posts showing up at the top.

I too wish that the NEW were at the top or if the interface allowed the member to chooze how they would like to view the posts..

Hit the "List" menu at the top, the 5th option is "Most Recent". Make it your home page or bookmark to always open the site to that page.

I agree. It makes me wonder if it is something not related to the site itself, but local to these users browsers, laptops, phones. It also seems that it's only two or three users that are seeing this issue, which is also strange. I would expect that if they were a valid issue, it would be seen by everyone. If Yahoo has a performance problem it won't be seen by just me.

I don't know what to tell you, Linn. I have found that using different browsers affects performance greatly. Just how much became obvious to me when I did beta testing.

I thought I found a solution using IE, but then it slowed to a crawl. I was in private chat with a few other users that were saying that they also could not get things posted. They all use different systems from mine.

I didn't say that, nor do I know. I was merely saying that when I did beta testing, I tried several different browsers and the difference in their performances was remarkable. It was actually the better known browsers that performed poorly, too. Chrome and FF were horrible.

I can almost never get on here properly through Internet Explorer on my laptop although that's what we use at work and the problem is not as frequent. Likely reason is that our office internet is faster than mine at home, but I still do have issues when at work.

I had my husband look over the mechanics of my browser and the devices I use. He says it is absolutely the server this site is using.

It IS the only site that I have a problem with and I am on many different sites on any given day. It's why I am asking the questions and hoping for a solution. I know many others are having a problem various times of day and it could be why we lost people.
