This is the only writing site that has this 'time out' fiasco

It can be extremely frustrating when there is perfect freeze which keeps happening repeatedly throughout the day. This could lead to members leaving the site.

Never knew that! But I am having problems with my browser, in accessing the grey pencil meant to start the 'discussion', feature.

Yes it has happened to me a couple of times but not often...I guess it happens when the site has many members posting at the same time, am not sure if that is the actual reason

I am experiencing a repeat of this. Even when there is no rush at the site.

@allknowing I did a disk cleanup last night, so it seems much better today, besidesa little lag I experienced earlier. It seems to be running faster too, so that is good.

@rosekiss Probably there are many issues that create this situation. Were you getting the timeout too?

Its horrible. The pages only open half way and the message 'time out try refreshin' is splashed. This happens throughout the day. A lot of time gets spent getting here.

I have been timed out a few times today.. I am sure they will be able to sort out these problems soon. Bubblews used to be ridden with such problems.

Yeah, this is annoying. We're still trying to figure out how to best address it. This error is tough to reproduce because it doesn't happen all the time. Out of, let's say, every 1000 page views of yours, how many times would you say this timeout is occurring? That might help us diagnose. Thanks!

Shall keep a tab on this and report. I had this today first thing in the morning but it got stabilised on its own. That is a good thing which never happens. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I will have this occur about four to five times in a row, then once that happens the path seems to clear up almost entirely. I do not know how to figure it relative to 1000.

Sometimes it is beautiful. Percentagewise it could be 50% of the time.

I do get frustrated but I am not leaving. I seem to have spells of the timeout, then once I am past one I seem to have good results for quite a while. I am reading what others have to say.

I too am here to stay. Let's admit it, this is the best site ever these timeouts notwithstanding.

Timeout problems, especially if only some people experience them, as appears to be the case here, are generally due to the speed of your Internet connection and how much jitter there is. There is not a lot that can easily be done about it from either end. On the whole, MyLot's servers are faster than many others (though it doesn't seem to be as fast as some to load). If your PC has to send requests multiple times before it gets an intelligible response (a function of jitter) or it is taking too long for the round trip between you and the MyLot server (which you should be able to estimate by pinging MyLot a number of times to see what the average speed is), then you are likely to get a lot of timeout errors and partial loading. All that you can really do about it is to make sure that you have a good line between you and your ISP and, if possible, upgrade to a faster service.

I have no issues with other sites and that is why I was prompted to write this post. And knowing how many are facing this problem it is difficult to find out as not all will read this post. I have two servers now as sometimes one of them does not deliver and when that happens it affects my entire internet effort . I only wish myLot can help as I truly like this site. For the time I spend here I do not get the desired results. At this moment it is smooth and I find it odd.
