Today I have been having a problem on mylot and don't know if it's my pc or just mylot. I realize there are a lot of members and the site gets busy but when I add an interest or tag a discussion it feels like forever for the page to load. Is there a best time to log in or is my pc slower on this site. It's driving me crazy and I feel like I just want to log out and try again later!

Remember there were several times, that you will see the message, "unable to post, use capital letters or punctuation marks" but when you check it, you had all those. Remember the time when, you can not sent PMs or you can not receive PMs. It is just normal.. This is a working sites, many users and many logs in logs out" and so on... it happens to all most sites. Facebook has that moment. but eventually it will be normalized again. like today.

In my point of view, your pc wont get slow becouz of mylot, because the server is too strong. Maybe because of your Internet connection, Or some Plug In may have crashed. Happens with me also many times. In task manager, turn off applications which are running unnecessarily. It will speed up ur Pc too.

I shut most of my applications off until I use them. I think it's my pc.

Well, MyLot is a well maintained site and its always fast 24/7. I think that your PC or your Internet connection is the problem. Maybe if you do some maintenance on your PC, it would probably go faster. Maintenance such as Scanning your PC for viruses, Defragmentation, Scandisk and none of this helped, the last hope is Reformatting your PC, Just look for a worthy Computer Technician and you're good to go. I hope this helps. Happy MyLotting~!!

yes, I do all of that...scanning for virus, defrag and delete cookies. I"ve never reformatted but then I can't afford a computer Tech.

I have had some small issues in the past with mylot ( and with other sites) but these last days I have had no problem at all. Maybe there are better and worse hours at internet where you live. Check how other sites are.

It's really only on mylot that I have the problem of sites taking a long time to load something.

It is not uncommon for Mylot to run slow because it can be a very busy site. If you are ever unsure whether it is the site or your computer then open another tab in your browser and visit a few other places. If the other sites load fine then Mylot is probably very busy, but if all sites are running slow then the problem is with your computer or internet connection. It is always good practice to avoid the computer from getting cluttered up with too many surplus files because that would slow down the system quite significantly. Defragmenting the drive also helps because it is them quicker for the computer to collate files and data.

It is fine for me. Have you tried clearing your cookies?

Yes I clean my cookies once or twice a day. It must be my pc because it's getting old.

It's running okay for me. But I'm only posting so maybe for other things it's slow. That's happened to me before. Posting might be okay but when you try to do something else is hangs up and gets really slow. And I usually have other things running and if everything else is okay, I'd say it's mylot being temperamental again.

It is not because of your pc, internet or which browser you use. Just sometime it is very slow to loading. Not all member facing this problem just some member. For those facing this problem they will know.

hi no not your computer at all ,its mylot and slower on Sunday as more people get on and evidently the bandwidth is not as large as it should be. Its been a little faster for me but nothing like it can be. My computer is fast everywhere else so its mylot being slow loading.
