So sick of thumbnails not loading.

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 20, 2016, 12:30 PM
A typical day browsing for stock resources at Deviant Art gives these results. Waiting for t01.deviantart.net... Waiting for t09.deviantart.net... Waiting for t11.deviantart.net... What do we pay for? Seriously. How about developing more features that your servers can't handle? Or charging more money for a broken system? This happens every day, it is not an isolated thing, and it is not fixed as they had claimed some time back. Maybe it's because users like  KarmaButterflyLove has over 780 copyrighted glamor photos (photo packs) posted, and users like SensePngs that has over 430, just to name a few. Yeah, that's art, posting copyrighted glamor photos, that's what we're paying for. That's what DA has fallen to. I hope everyone has better luck than me finding something useful here... on a semi-regular basis...

Having this very same problem. I don't even know what I did to deserve it. -_-

I have this problem whenever I upload a gif with a custom thumbnail, if that's what you'd call it. And its so annoying, I've seen other gifs that don't have this issue, so why do I have it?

Yep. Same problem.

I have also noticed that when you select a thumbnail in a gallery that needs to be moved to another folder, once it has been moved (or they if you've selected multiple), the remaining thumbnails become smaller and you can no longer select a "pencil" until you have refreshed the page. This is really frustrating in a group that uses a "Submit Here" folder!!! Or if you just want to tidy up your folders. It makes the whole sorting/filing process very tedious.

I wonder how long they can keep this site afloat. It seems that we have more and more "glitches" :(.

Yes, it's a general and intermittent problem.  Sometimes turning on 'Opera Turbo' in the Opera web browser works, which uses Opera's local cache of the web's popular sites.  But these days Opera Turbo is also unresponsive, maybe a third of the time.

I rarely get all thumbnails on a page to load anymore.
I use Imagus on Chrome or Thumbnail Zoom Plus on Firefox to hover over Thumbnail placeholders or Title links to see images that did not load.

Same thing, and refreshing doesn't help either. I thought it was my computer at first, but I don't have trouble with Pinterest and all those images.  Even clicking on the image doesn't help.  I have to click on the title to get it to load.  I blame it to all this site pandering to mobile viewing.  I don't do DA on my phone, it's just too small and I can't stand the DA mobile app.  If they can't make their system compatible with a PC, they can forget about me buying a Core membership next time mine is out.

I think it's a shame. The vast majority of work at DA probably goes through a PC one way or another, they had better keep supporting it.

ah yes, I made a ticket about this a week ago. Although it's a problem I've been dealing with for months. I made a journal as well detailing my experience with issue.adidea.deviantart.com/journal/…

May be an update from this one: support.deviantart.com/hc/en-u…  

I think that's the one I saw a few weeks or months ago. Just goes to prove that it is an ongoing issue that has still not been fixed.

It's quite possible, I've seen this problem on the site for a while.

OMG!  I see your point Sir Hal...it is a disgraceful way to run a business....especially when the business is ART  :rose:

you too? I thought it was my PC. :(  Yes I'm sick of it as well. Only remedy is to click on the blank ones...you never know what you will love unless you do that. But it does irk me. DA has been like this before, and I think they soon fixed it. Anyone make out a "bug" ticket yet?
And yes, I tried the "refresh" thing. several times. Doesn't make a darn bit of difference. :|

I checked a good while back, and there was a ticket, but it also said it was fixed. Personally, (and obviously, I could be wrong) I think the site has gotten so bloated and over burdened that they have lost control of it. I imagine 'free' users vastly outnumber those that pay. I think they try to create new options and features to try to lure more paying customers to create higher revenue, but then the performance of the site takes a hit. I can understand having problems occasionally, but this has been going on for months. To me that's inexcusable.

sometimes I wonder if the vision of the site creators have lost focus for why they made DA. Money or Art....I'm in no position to hazard a guess. Personally I think the site has so many scripts and "toys" (MURO, etc.) that it's kind of "busting" our PCs. Probably not possible, since I'm not computer programmer. Mere speculation.
Anyway, hope it'll get fixed soon. No matter what the ticket resolution says. :-P

I'm not renewing my Core membership. Too expensive for an ad blocker!

Oh I thought it was my internet speed, now it seems to be more a server problem :T

I imagine it has something to do with their server load during some peak hours of operation. Not saying it is never caused by external problems, just that it seems a bit more regular than what should be considered acceptable.

I hear ya Hal, refresh refresh refresh I spend more time getting things to load than actual looking at Images. It's not just here i'll admit most art sites are getting that way and I blame the Mobile App Bull Shit the software really complicates things and makes for incompatibility. I don't understand who wants to browse art sites on a 3 or 5 inch monitor anyway like looking at Postage Stamps, I mean hell I have a 24 inch monitor and think it's small for evaluating and appreciating Art...I don't know guess I'm just getting old and Grumpy...er
