Feel free to ask questions here. I can help with as much as I can. There's a lot of different things, some good, some bad. Take the time to play around with it. I would highly suggest you update your privacy settings, located on the right, next to this box.

You can change a lot of other preferences too, like how many posts you see, how you see them, etc.

Laurena,

There are a lot of other people having the same slow issues. We all think it's the ads that are loading between the posts. I'll see if I can find out anything more, or if there's anything you can do to help stop it. I've been using Firefox and it seems to block out my ads, do you want to try that? I'll get back to you as soon as I can....come visit when you have time. Grab the paper, some coffee, etc.

Per the CM's, "Site performance and login/account issues are our critical priority right now.

Yes, it is VERY slow and frustrating.

Tasha,

FYI. I have never been able to access the survey. I just get an error page saying "this page cannot be displayed" as if it doesn't exist.. Does it need to run on a specific platform?

I've tried Firefox, Chrome, and IE6

Oh that's not good! It shouldn't need a specific platform to work, either.
