    I've been having so much trouble with the site for two days now, so slow loading anything that it's useless to even try to navigate around. Windows keeps telling me your site is not responding. I have updated and tried Chrome and Internet Explorer, updated my flash and the other one, cleared my cache. I don't get alerts for threads either. I didn't have problems with your site until yesterday.

    Mine I have trouble typing as there is often a huge delay in typing and the letters appearing on the screen. I'm not having this issue with other sites so it is not my computer.

    I'm getting it normal now on here. But I have had issues with my internet and my browser.

    A few questions will help us isolate the issue:

    • Are you on a computer, tablet, or mobile phone.
    • If phone / mobile, which model? If computer, which operating system and version?
    • Which browser and version are you using (eg., Chrome 58.0.3029, Firefox 3.5.9, Internet Explorer 8, etc.)
    • Have you deleted your internet cache / browser history of files and tried again?
    • Have you tried a different browser?

    Thanks, and we look forward to getting your problem fixed!

    Lap top and my computer at work. Internet Explorer on both the versions are updated automatically --cannot change work. Won't use the other ones especially chrome and firefox because I've had them take over my system with huge problems. My cache automatically scrubbed on a schedule. It is only this site that I have issues with and if I shut the laptop down totally and start it up it seems to work for a while. I get a "thinking" circle that spins when I'm having issues and dings in the background for no reason that I can find. Dings at work are silenced so no idea on that there.

    I have been having the same problem as jeria. The computer is WAY behind me in typing. I am using a house computer using Windows 10. I will try clearing the cache but I am not having this problem with any other website other than BYC. When I click on anything I get the "thinking" circle as well. I am using Microsoft edge. I'll try something else. It seems the longer I am on the site the worse it gets!

    Seems to be better by cleaning the cache, Thanks! I tried it on Firefox and it wasn't any better. Hopefully this will help!

    I haven't done anything different and it has been better the past few days. Windows 10 also and internet that handles internet TV fine.
