As most of you know, I only am on the board during the week, from work.

Hi Pam,

I'm sorry you're still having such a hard time.

It doesn't take me 30 secs, but it definitely isn't "instant"--there is a whole thread over on the Parents of Teens Board about how everyone hates the new format and I think generally the amt. of posting is going down.

Pam,

Trust me, you're not alone. A lot of people are having issues. I know that's one reason a few ppl aren't seen here as often anymore. I know for myself, it hasn't slowed down, however, I can also see where things take more time.

i.e. posting this. When I get to the compose page, it loads a lot more stuff in the background. I start typing, but then it loads and then places my cursor back to the beginning so my post looks all screwy.

I hope they can fix it. Unfortunately, this change has probably hurt iVillage more than any other change we have. I'm amazed at how many people are just leaving.

(BTW, I was on a short vacation, so that's my excuse for not being around - oh, and work was crazy last week)

Please don't leave perminantly!!! I've been on ivillage for many years and i must say YOU give the best and wisest advice i've seen on here (and on any board i've visited). Your perspective is fresh and honest. You give no judgement or accusations in your tone. Seems like you cut through the clutter of the situation and give sound advice.

i hope the slowness gets fixed soon. (although i personally, am not experience too much slowness)

Dont worry pam-it's NOT just you , or your computer.

I could be writing your post verbatim---

yeah, I quit looking here completely when I have anything else to do.

using this "quieck reply" button helps me POST faster---but----> YES, does NOTHING to make the opening of reading pages faster---

NO, I dont "buy" it being our computers (or us!) at fault---or why could we access the "old" board faster?

If there is some other place to post your complaints, let me know---

the last two days I spent a bunch of time trying to read a few here and post----but I'm not happy about the time committment necessary to do so----

Maybe the CL's have a place to forward all of these threads to, that they'll get read by someone who would be interested in knowing why/how they are losing so many potential readers/posters?

THANKS !!

(oh no, Pam---I just realized YOU are a "CL"----so, I guess you're just as helpless as I am!! !!)

Tasha - As I stated I did both of those things and it made no difference at all. Even just trying to scroll, the pages halt and jump around and make it frustrating to scroll down the page. That to me reads that the pages are loading new ads or whatever which hangs up system, while I am on the page. I am not a computer expert, but logically, by having the pages constantly loading and reloading new ads or video ads, hangs it up. I hope they can do something about it. Thank you for allowing me to vent. Pam

I think it also has something to do w/ the age or speed of your computer or internet connection.
