Deviation Actions

of constantly having to refresh your pages like 15 times. It's impossible for me to clear all my deviation notifications because I always end up just being able to view 10 deviations before the whole site starts lagging again. And I don't think it's my ISP. everything else on the page, loads. The thumbnails load. The Adverts load. It's just the actual deviation that doesn't load. I have no problems loading facebook, watching videos on youtube and going to other sites. It's only deviant art! I have to try and check back after a few minutes then I'd be able to open a few deviations again (about 20) before the whole thing chokes up again.

I'm sometimes tempted to delete my account out of sheer frustration. The only thing keeping me here is a sense of sentimental attachment and all the friends and artists that i follow here. Please DA, do something with your servers. fix this problem. Am I the only one having these issues?

I had the issue a long time ago using Firefox. Now I use Opera for my dA machinations, since that is the only browser that doesn't have that problem for me. It's weird, and very annoying!

It's so nice to hear from you again! I trust everything is fine and dandy on your side of the world? :)
I haven't been checking visiting DA because of this issue. I haven't been painting much also. Well, not painting personal stuff anyway :(
I use google chrome. what's a dA Machination?

:D Sorry, with dA machinations I just meant logging into the website, uploading stuff etc. I'm not even sure it's an actual word, but it sounded fancy. ;)

Things are fine and dandy here, and I hope you can say the same? It's a shame you don't paint as much as you used to - I assume life got in the way?

Ahhh, hehe now i get it. =p

Yeah, I guess you can say life and my job got in the way of painting for my own personal pleasure.  I guess that's what happens when you do it everyday for a living. (though I don't really paint everyday, i mostly do user interface design for games) 

Hopefully all that is going to change this year. A lot of big changes coming. I'm excited. I'll let you know more once they are in motion :D
