I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing problems with the amount of time it takes Dogster pages to load. We have DSL and don't have problems with any other sites, but Dogster loads so slow I get frustrated while trying to use it. I love Dogster so if anyone knows anything, please pass along the info! Is this a temporary problem? is it my computer? I'm thinking maybe Dogster is so popular that all us dogs are overloading the server with all our woofing and barking!

The forums wouldn't load for us this morning, but I'm assuming from what HQ said a week or so ago, that they were going to be adding more features. Anytime that's done, everything slows down and sometimes stops completely..

I took the time to go outside and weed the garden.. Sure was glad when forums opened back up.. gardening is hard WORK! *LOL

We have that problem. It takes a long time for any dogster webpage to load. Mom and dad do other things while they wait, but it is frustrating.

Same here...it's taking forever to load anything and then this morning I was getting "cannot find server" .
I also went gardening while I was waiting ..... and youré right, it's much harder to garden than it is to play with Dogster.

My garden needs attention, too! Thanx for the responses, I guess it's nice to know it's not just me. Hopefully the situation improves, until then, I'll have to keep a book by the computer. Well, I think I'll go weed the garden now!

Yes... I've bee noticing that it goes off and on for a while now... I think especially since the forums popped up, people have been using the site a lot more which sort of slows down everything...

Ah well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that maybe they will update their server soon. I just hope it doesn't discourage people from using this cool site. smile

Yeah, who makes this thing. Don't they know doggies don't like molasses ;>

Seriously we are doing all we can. The recent publicity has doubled our usage sooner than we expected. We've made a bunch of tweaks that should improve performance, but they are really only band-aids. The good news is we will be overhauling our entire serving architecture. The bad news is it won't happen overnight. If you can manage to stick with us we promise we'll have a site as fast as Amazon but it'll be just for us doggies!

Many woofs
