Failure to launch?

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

Active Rain has been experiencing 'performance' issues, of late.

Lots of recent questions in the Q&A section complaining about inability to 'post'... inability to maintain a 'post', and lack of response, or unresponsive activity.

It's not really something to worry about... it happens to everyone, every once it a while... Although, personally, it's never actually happened to me.  No never.. not even once.

But there have been several people complaining of poor performance lately.

Maybe we need a prescription for Active Rain Viagra?

If you're experiencing a little Active Rain fatigue, try restarting your browser, changing your browser, or clearing your cache... can help (or so I hear) when you're experiencing... uh... failure to launch.

Good morning Alan May ,

Common sense approach. I had difficulty this morning  and received a message there was a high volume of traffic on AR. I left the computer and later in the morning things got better.

Hi Alan May,

You can see when there is high volume coming through AR. Everything is slow.

Here is my issue. I write a blog. I change font size and add color to my headers. I go to preview or publish and THEN the font sizes change, the color changes throughout the post. I have to go back in and resize and change the color as well as go to default text and start the process all over again. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes that I don't have to create a post.

Alan- tell me that is not your cactus plant!!!  Since the beginning of time, or at least my time here, we've had the frog or whatever it was and the curtain thing pop up when there was an issue. But things happen so you reboot take a break and try again.

Good morning, Alan... trust me, I've tried all those remedies... although not the viagra one!  Each day I come just that bit closer to abandoning this platform... the time spent here frustrating oneself because it doesn't respond properly is becoming untenable.
