    Can someone tell me what's going on with Fun please ... I'm getting a horrendous lag when trying to reply to threads ... as a touch typist its driving me nuts! o_O I thought it was because I've just done a complete re-install of the operating system on my laptop and have been setting it all back up today, but have now found out that it is just the Fun site that the problem occurs on.

    Today the smilies disappeared and have now come back so I'm wondering if it's something to do with the server? :confused:

    Not the same, I can type quicker than it can 'print' on the screen but it does eventually catch up putting the letters in the order in which I typed them, although sometimes it loses the will to live and after a while stops showing anything! It has also stared to 'jump' up a few lines and then insert the text there which is even MORE annoying! It's only just started today hence why I thought it was to do with my laptop reinstalling, but it only happens on this site and I recall it also happens on my netbook too occasionally but again ONLY on this site.

    Not an option, my 'fingers' are hard wired to my brain, so as soon as a I think of something to type it's been tapped out already ... too many years as a PA taking direct dictation to the screen! :D

    Already ran crap cleaner about an hour ago ... it is ONLY this website which is affected no others so it HAS to be something to do with Fun. o_O

    I've now changed to using Google Chrome and it seems to be okay now so it looks like it is something to do with how Fun relates to Firefox ... any ideas?

    Nothing I see this end would be causing the problem, I've just tried with FF Chrome and safari and everything appears to be OK. But I'm on the road and only have Macbook with me, so not tested on a Windows box. Server side issues normally affect everyone at once. The smileys disappeared for a few hours as I was getting things ready to add some Christmas smileys next week.:D Keep me posted if you continue to have problems and I'll get someone cleverer than me to take a look.
