  • Is it just me?

    Lately I have been having some problems on this forum, and wondering if anyone else are having similar problems. I am experiencing longer load times, especially when first coming to the home page, and sometimes when I click "Back" nothing happens but only when going from a topics page, like Open Conversation, back to the main page. I even try Alt+Left and have to hit them more then once before it works.

    Ditto.

    I assume it is due to moving the site to new servers.

      More than likely it is due to the way the web pages are processed. Sometimes the page loads itself in a kind of loop. When this happens, going back to the previous page actually reloads this page.

      Here is an example. Your normal progression of web pages might be A to B to C to D. Now you click to go to page E. When page E is about to be displayed, page E reloads itself. So you end up with your browser history looking like this: A to B to C to D to E to E. Now you see the back button once "keeps" you on page E (which may reload itself). If you click the back button quickly several times in a row, you may get back to page D or C.

      Kind of quirky, I agree. But that is web pages for you.

        I have no trouble because I have made the short-cut symbol while on "Unread Posts" page.

          No problems here either. Seems like everything is working fine, on my end at least.

            I usually use the site on my phone and no problems at all.

              For the last few days, up to yesterday morning, the site has been very slow loading and glitchy. Thankfully it is now running smoothly. That makes me think it was a migration issue.

                I believe that if you lean to the right a bit more, it will work better.

                  Seems since the move to the new server, the first time I log in always fails, but it works the second time no problem.

                    Well now I do not feel so alone knowing that others are having the same problems. Thanks for the replies, and hopefully these glitches will be resolved.

                      I advise not to ever visit page E. It's always slow.

                        No. There is an apparent issue with the routing of IP Packet traffic to and from the site:

                        C:\Documents and Settings>tracert www.clothesfreeforum.com

                        Tracing route to clothesfreeforum.com [72.167.142.123] over a maximum of 30 hops:

                        If my understanding of IP traffic remains accurate, no single IP Address should appear twice in the "tracert" list above. "Hop" 10 should not closely resemble hop 13, and hop 12 should not match hop 16 exactly. This appears to indicate the data traffic is passing through the same piece of network gear twice. Why would someone, such as a data network provider do this, (ummm) perhaps to charge the client TWICE for data they should have only had to pay for once. If the client (CFI/CFF) were limited to 50 GBs of data traffic a month and routine goes OVER to 60 or 70 GBs, which costs extra, it could be because some of the traffic is NOT unique.

                        Checking it from another point of origin (www.network-tools.com) shows:

                        Of course I would recommend someone else look into this observation and confirm what I "think" I am seeing before questioning any data carrier's routing practices (and their business practice integrity).

                          Be careful. Web servers can turn off responses to pings. To see this, try pinging www.cbs.com. You get a reply. Now try www.cnn.com. You get a time out just like on this site. So time outs are because the server is not responding, but it can be because it is dead or set to not reply.

                            The problem I have is that after posting, or viewing a post, I click on the "Latest posts" in the header and usually get a "No Newer Posts" page until I click on the "Latest Posts" a second time, then it all works out fine.

                              That is just your foes on the political forums. They don't want you to post anymore!!!
