Since I am not a PC wizzard by any means, I was wondering if anyone could tell me why I have to click the mouse 2 or 3 times in order to back up to the previous screen? I dont have this problem on any other sites, and never used to here either. Do others have this problem? I was wondering if the site has just slowed down causing a delay in site response. Comments?

Thanks

I am no PC wiz, but can let you know am not having the problem here, just tried it out several times. This may be in your machine, ISP, router, other on your end. That is the most I can contribute

Thanks for the comment. You have me thinking now. I added a router for my girlfriends PC about 4 months ago. Trying to think if thats when I started to have the problem. Guess I cant figure out though why it works fine on other sites.

There can be a lot of reasons for this. Since I am a closet computer geek I will give it a shot.

I have a computer that is as fast as fast gets along with the best router /modem money can buy. AND yes i have the same issue here on occasion. This site is very active and allows embedded video and such. This slows the host server down considerably. The added ever changing adds also slow down response time. Also the number of active members on line at the same time can have effect.


Usually the addition of server space is a fix but also is a cost that most likely will not be addressed unless it slows down to much.

On your end download speed means a lot. check your speed by using a speed test or asking your isp supplier.

Thanks EdwardR. Thats kind of what I thought too. I think the site might be slowing down a bit causing this. Thanks for your input.
