Question Help! Site loads sooo slow or freezes

I tried to follow the links to contact a mod but it took me to the page saying I don't have permission to access... I love spending time on DS, but the pages load so slowly and often freeze - even when there are no photos. Is there something I can do to resolve this? Maybe a setting for slower bandwidths or something? I have DSL, but you would think I have dialup as slow as the pages load. BTW, I do not have this problem on other sites.

Thanks in advance!!!!

Re: Help! Site loads sooo slow or freezes

I had the same problem.

In the lower left, does it say something about nexttag.com? Mine always does.

I was also getting the Antivirus 2009 virus. I started using Firefox with AdBlock and it is MUCH better.

I don't see anything about nexttag.com, but I'm going to try Firefox right now. Thanks so much for the suggestion! The slowness really drives me nuts! I will post if it's any help or not

Re: Help! Site loads sooo slow or freezes

I just found out from another Mama........its all the ads that make it slow. there are two options, use firefox with ad blocker or become a "site supporter". The link is usually in the lower right corner.......if you sign up for a year its 2.50 a month or $30. So worth it for the speed........as a "site supporter" you apparently don't have to see all the ads anymore.

I agree with pp. I'm not gonna pay to get faster speed - DSL is expensive enough! But using firefox makes using this site so much more bearable~
