That Mylot seems to be slower on the weekends? Normally it doesn't bother me, because I'm usually too busy on the weekends to be on the computer much, but I happen to have a free day today. Soccer is over, and the winter season doesn't start for another couple weeks, so the only thing I had to do today was take my daughter to baton. The kids are leaving for their grandparents soon, and I have nothing else going on until hubby is home from work. So I figured I'd spend some time on Mylot... but it's so slow. I'm only getting a few responses to my discussions, and there aren't a whole lot of new discussions being started. Where is everyone??

Yeah it does seem to get slower at weekends I have noticed. It is especially annoying as weekends is when I have more time to spend on here and there is never anything to answer! Luckily I am being kept busy by a good friend who is setting lots of great discussions, mentioning no names katsmeow!!

LOL, glad I could help. I'm pretty bored this morning, and have lots of time on my hands. The kids have all gone to their grandparents now, so I can sit and relax with just the babies home. Since there are no discussions to respond to, I had to start some! I'm out of ideas now though.. at least for the moment.

I guess every one is out shopping all ready. Walmart was crowded last Saturday when we had to go get something.

I do my best not to go to Walmart on the weekends, unless I'm only picking up one or two things. I do my shopping on Friday afternoon while the kids are in school. It's busy enough then.

well basically, weekends is the time for family members to get together, maybe most of us are out for some movie, or picnic hehe. Well, Dont feel bad, everyone will be back because for sure being absent for a day in mylot will make them miss mylot a lot. lols

I have noticed that most of the time on weekends it is slower here on myLot. I have been letting my son be on the computer most of the day while I get things done. We also rented Journey to the Center of the Earth on PPV tonight and watched that while we ate dinner.

I guess they are busy outdoors. The weather is not really that good here in my place, but some places they have a bit warm weather today. So they are taking advantage of that before the winter season starts.

It is now Saturday and I have been on here since before supper time and it seems to be performing satisfactorily. I have been on sites that slow down terribly when a lot of people are on and this does not seem to be one of them for me. Maybe you are further from the servers or it also could be your own ISP that is part of the problem. I am in eastern Canada and find that servers near me seem to be faster than those that I have to go all the way to California and back.

It's ok from here. Sometimes some lag though. But I think it is because lots of new mylotter are coming. It's good from another point of view. Happy Mylotting!

i've definitely noticed mylot is much slower on weekends, i guess everyone is using it because its the weekend..but little responses and new discussions are appearing which is pretty strange. i also find mylot to be a little slow as well during the weekdays, its not as bad as the weekend though

I never noticed. I'm on everyday and I usually get about the same number of stuff regardless of the day.

Yeah, it's slow. Most people have families and family activities. I however have absolutely NOTHING going on this particular weekend. I can't think of anything interesting to talk about. And even though there are some interesting Discussions going on, either they are not in my specific interest or knowledge areas, or I just can't think of anything to say about them that hasn't already been said by posters before me. So, I will probably not have much earnings on this fine, boring Saturday!

Is that so? I did not really notice that. Well, it's the weekend. I think people are either sleeping longer hours, going to supermarkets to buy some groceries, taking children to the park or somewhere, having guests at their houses, attending some parties and weddings and many more weekends activities. So, that's why nothing much has been going on but for me, I still manage to find something to respond to such as your discussion. I do not have any idea to post so far so I am just doing my rounds looking fro interesting post to respond and I have already got about 6 so far and I think I am going to do another 4 or so before calling it a day. By the way, it is already 2:08 am Sunday morning over here. All the best to you and have a nice weekend. Cheers!
