DL Technical Problems

Am I the only one who has been having issues these last few weeks?

At times, I can't access the home page. It just hangs up and I have to access through the back door -- by googling an old thread and entering through that.

And even when it's working, when I pull down a page, I often have to wait like 10 seconds before the page is responsive, meaning the links are clickable and I can scroll down.

I'm a subscriber, too.

Sounds like you need run CCleaner.

If you have a HUGE thread watcher, you'll get that 10 second (plus or minus) delay before i'ts responsible.

Trim down your thread watcher to speed things up.

Thanks, R2, that helped with responsiveness.

by Anonymousreply 310/16/2011 "responsive".

"I have to access through the back door"

It's DL's way of making sure only gay men read it.

What is CC Cleaner?

by Anonymousreply 610/16/2011

If you run Windows, it's a utility that will "clean" your PC of old unused unnecessary stuff (clean up old temp files, purge browser cookies, and clean up the registry, among other things).

How do you prevent posts from being added to Thread Watcher? I seem to have threads popping up there that I've never even read.

by Anonymousreply 810/16/2011

Every thread you reply to gets added. If you don't want it added, after the refresh (after posting) just click the orange star. It'll turn gray and remove the thread from the thread watcher.

The only way threads get into the thread watcher is if you click the star (turn it orange) to add them, or if you reply to a thread (it gets auto-added).

R9, that's not true for me. Just today, it's added threads about not-too-pricey vacations and other stuff that I have zero interest in and would never even open.

Is anyone else having problems on DL right now? I can't get it to load the new threads, even though all of my watched threads are still there. It started about 15-20 minutes ago here.

I know who did it.

by Anonymousreply 1201/19/2013

LOL. Well-played, R12. Very well-played.

My DL screen today. :-(

by Anonymousreply 1401/19/2013

It's been happening for hours now. I'm only seeing threads already "gold-starred" in my thread watcher.

Nothing else.

by Anonymousreply 1501/19/2013

At least the search function is still working.

I think I might look up a "tasteful friends..." thread for amusement.

by Anonymousreply 1601/19/2013

Link to NEW THREADS thread, while DL is "broken".

Paste links to your new threads here so others can find them:

Why does Nathan Fillion look so fat on "Castle"?

by Anonymousreply 1801/19/2013

Post a link R16. I've never lookwed at one of those.

by Anonymousreply 1901/19/2013

I hate to be churlish in these trying times on DL, R19 (o.k, I'm exaggerating) but did you read my post?

[quote]the search function is still working

So click on "find threads", type in "tasteful friends" and a plethora of thread results will appear, a whole world of décor disasters.

For the past few weeks, there have been scripts running behind DL when it loads - it slows everything down and delays use of the site. My computer sends a message asking whether I want stop the scripts - I go 'yes' and DL starts working.

It's baaaaack...
