  • How Reliable is Armchair General for you?

    I like to keep in touch with any problems that membership is having accessing our forums and I would be very interested to know how well our connection is working for everyone. Please take a moment and select an option in the poll that best describes your satisfaction level with the performance of our site. Along with the survey we have running on our site, this data will help us plan for the future, including possibly upgrading to faster servers at some point.

    I've made the poll public so that I can see if there are any problems consistent with overseas users.

    Thanks.

    There are slow days but it's usually due to my bad connection.

        I gave it a 4 because it occasionally times out but it could be a problem from my end in which case I would give it a 5.

            What he said.

            A lot of times when I first log in I can't get to view anything, so I have to refresh the main page. And in the late afternoon/early evenings I have many time outs, unable to connect.

              The only time I had any problems it turned out to be a conflict between my security suite and my browser. 5 out of 5 from me.

                  This is the only forum I'm a member of, so I have no basis of comparison. However, if there is something out there that is better, it must be from another planet. The reliability of ACG is excellent.

                    I have good access to ACG.

                    My only 3 complaints

                    -There are times that ACG just won't load. often fixed by doing something else for a while.

                    - using a separate computer to view ACG (online survey causes annoyance but is understandable)

                    Edit* Just Remembered I'm having an issue that when i press submit post it takes forever to load and9/10 times it takes me to a screen that says i can't post more than once every 30 seconds. My post sends but is an annoyance

                        I give it a 4 because I do have some lag at least once a day.

                        Then again, I am here a lot. So maybe that is to be expected. Overall, my experience is excellent.

                        Oh yeah, in case it helps: my connection is 22Mbps so I don't think the lag is on my IP end.

                          What are you trying to feed us this week? My pop-up blocker is working harder then a ***** on a battleship.

                          The only load problem I have is the huge steamy stinky loads my fellow posters pile straight from Fox, Limbaugh, and Beck into the Political Forum.

                          Other then that, no problems since switching to Firefox.

                            Firefox is consistently faster than Internet Explorer for me also.

                            I do have some slow times, but I believe it is traffic and weather related more than anything else.

                            It does seem much faster whenever Crash is not online.

                              A problem that I occasionally get is I spend a while with my 'two finger' typing on a fairly long answer, click on the Answer and up on the screen comes 'Whoops unable....' and I know that the odds are that I have lost my mail!! To say that I am a little Peeved is putting it mildly! Why it happens beats me, because I go through the routine again and it is OK??
