Hi VBB -- This afternoon the entire site, especially the Forums, got slower and slower.  Now it's almost impossible to get from forum to forum, or just look for the next message.
My computer is working just fine all over the 'net but I surecan't get around here.  I wonder if I'll even get this question posted?

My question is ... what is slowing me down so much?
Thanks in advance.

Nancy:

First of all, thank you for continuing to visit the site, eventhough you are experiencing difficulties with it.

Secondly, we were adding some fixes to the site to make it work faster and this addition of "code" and other technical stuff causes the site to temporarily slow down.  It should be working much faster for you now!

Thank you VBB ....
I started blushing when I returned after posting my complaint and, this soon,  things are fast and easy again.

Sharon, praying for your daughter....surgery tomorrow, corrrect?

Nancy, VBB is running very slowly for me tonight, but other websites are just fine....zipping along. Maybe they are making more "fixes" here. Sure hope that's all it is! The whole site seems to be screwed up tonight.....normally, the discussion posts are in nice order....from most recent at the top on down. Tonight, mine are all in a jumbled mess. On one of them the top post was from days ago, then the next one down a few hours, then back to days ago, etc. Strange! Anybody notice that?

Yes, Carol - I'm seeing the same thing.  Let's hope this means that "they" aqre working on it and making big repairs.

Sure hope you are right, Nancy, because my VBB pages are running terribly slow today. I'm actually multitasking.....while waiting for pages to load I am sorting and filing coupons and getting grocery list prepared for shopping! Too aggravating just sitting here waiting for pages to load!!! Let's hope it gets better real soon!!!
Happy Thanksgiving!! Gonna be a busy rest of the week from tomorrow on so not sure how much I will be here. Take care!!

Well, my last post here was about a week and a half ago and things haven't gotten any better as far as moving along very fast on the site. In fact, lately it's been a whole lot slower than before! The new moving pictures on the home page take forever to load. Yesterday, I couldn't even get into VBB. I waited 20 minutes for the home page to load and then finally gave up because it simply would not load. When I got on tonight, it took over 10 minutes for it to load. What's going on?! I thought things would be better by now! VBB, is there a way you can fix things so pages load faster? Please?!

Wow! I was pleasantly surprised today when it actually took less than five minutes to get into VBB!!! For the past week or more, it has been super-slow as I wait for the home page to come up. Most times 15 to 20 minutes. Last Friday, I couldn't even get in at all. So this was nice today when the page came up quite a bit quicker than usual!
However, can't figure out why, all of a sudden, I am having to sign in again! I thought VBB had taken care of that problem, but I had to sign in yesterday and then again today, even though I have the little box checked that says to remember me. What's going on, VBB? Why am I having to start signing in again each time I visit?

I am having to sign in again each time also. And the speed has NOT gotten better. I have found that the longer you are on the site, the slower it gets.

I guess we are all anxious to see the website function properly because we love the sharing. It is probably slow in part because so many of us enjoy using it. Keep up the good work VBB!

I know, Angela......the sharing seems to have become a very important aspect of VBB.....more so since the site has upgraded, I think!
I love sharing and getting to know other VBBers and sharing each others photos and recipes. It's such fun!!
