Hey!
My DA pages are freezing up more and more this past number of weeks. I can't view and comment on other peoples works, which I regularly enjoy, and adding and sorting through my own pages is becoming more and more tiresome. When I try to add responses to peoples comments on my work, the type goes haywire. Seems things are OK at my end of the chain... Seems more likely that DA are playing tricks. Keep getting asked to spend money to upgrade even though I add work for free, like most others, and so it might be time to spend more time on other domains were this kind of badgering isn't present. So if I suddenly vanish from DA, thanks to those few people who made the effort to comment on my paltry efforts, and a secondary thanks to those who downloaded and or faved my renders but could not comment.

Hello my friend, If you are using the Firefox Browser that is most likely your problem...  Please consider using Chrome as it does not cause these problems, have been using for years and have no problems with DA.

Best wishes and Merry Christmas my friend.

Thank you for this heads-up webbedman. Can the Internet Explorer (11) do similar bad things to big graphic/s viewing?!? I have often been frightened away from Chrome... It nearly vaporized (bit exaggerated) my older pc some years aback now. So I installed it...
Best Christmas wishes to you too my friend!!! Careful not to over indulge - too much!!! :happybounce:

Stay away from IE, too many issues with it thus the reason Microsoft has been slowly replacing it with EDGE , however it is still buggy and not really ready for Prime Time yet.  Chrome has been vastly improved since its humble beginnings - now up to version 63 as of today - and has become the best of all the major browsers...  Therefore I highly recommend you install it.

Hope this helps and finds you well!!!

Cheers for these tips webbedman. I'll certainly look into the newest Chrome. :D (Big Grin)

Have to agree with Madaigual this has been annoying me but it is not DA.

Cheers Daleksupreme. I'll look into it. Seeing your avatar again reminded me it is less than a week before Ms Dr Who arrives on our screens. :D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin)

Yep! Although her costume looks pants, and I have concerns with Bradly Walsh as a companion as I have hated him in everything I have ever seen him in. Also i think Chibnall is hugely overrated, I hope to be proved wrong on every count.

Haven't thought about her outfit - as yet! Guess a Catsuit's off the cards... Bradly Walsh as a companion?!? How on earth is that gonna work!!! Maybe the Daleks put paid to him in his first scene - hopefully. Just hope everyone don't start kissing each other as previously in Who and Torchwood - it detracts!!! Waaaah!

I too had this problem a few weeks ago...I just gave up trying to write comments on :devart:, there was a 5-10 second delay per letter or just a total freeze up!
Turns out it was the Browser auto-update (Firefox > Firefox Quantum - Complete PoS!!!) but only on certain pages (e.g. Deviantart, and sites featuring graphics).

I read all the Firefox "help" pages and none of their tips worked (they claim Quantum works fine, whereas millions of users say it doesn't!)...  In the end I disabled the plug-ins I had installed and to date that seems to have done the trick.

Don't know if you use Firefox, but as I mentioned, it was the 3rd party plugins causing these problems (I've also read that certain antivirus progs are causing probs with the latest versions of ALL browsers)  

:D

I think my Firewall is McAfee. My misses just said try it out with the Firewall switched off... Waaaah! No, I disagree! Oops!  so I might have a quick try out - even though my safety set up often tells me of threats when I use DA as I look at other peeps work.

I seem to be using Internet Explorer 11. I don't recognise the other names. Yesterday I was using a... what I call, blog style, cookery website (Xmas Pfeffernuse mnnnnn in the fridge right now) and it did similar to DA... Froze. So I opened a second window and this was OK, for a while. Then it froze and so I opened a third, and so on. I recall doing this about 6 months ago on DA, and it worked similarly. Open another window with the first still open etc, and you get by. I'll keep this responses (thanks guys) and check through them. The add-ons plug-ins things might need looking at... I don't usually do any of these manually but they maybe have crept in some how. Oddly enough... the typing seems OK today!?! The last few weeks I haven't been able to finish a line without the type going all over the show!?!
Cheers you guys. Be sad to leave the render story just as things are hotting up!!!
It appears Gay Ellis is in for a big change in her lifestyle... :o (Eek)
