I don't have problems with any other group but this is extremely annoying. MOCpages help is super slow. Whenever I want to view a conversation, It takes around 5-6 minutes to load. I dunno if its my computer or it takes a lot of time to generate the conversation but its been becoming a problem to me. Please help!

There are lots of people in the group that may be on at the same time. Also, some of the threads are very long because people reuse old threads instead of constantly making new ones.

OK, if you mean "slow to post my comments" that is because they are going to moderation for questionable content.

Self moderate your own language please and there will be fewer delays. Also, might I suggest NOT including external links in comments unless they are to certified safe websites - The links I am seeing in your comments are suspect in my opinion.

If you mean people are slow to respond to your comments - well that is probably because your queries are not specific enough, aren't things the group was set up to deal with, or are not supported by appropriate evidence.

In the last 4 days you have generated more inquiries than any other member, at least two of which related to previous conversations still open. This kind of behaviour is not considered acceptable.

Official replies take time, which is why some members try to reply first to offer suggestions when they can. If I (or one of the admins) feel their reply is incomplete we will add additional information.

My suggestions for your future posting in this group:

1. Take at least 5 minutes to look through the list of previous conversations to see if any relate to your question before opening a new one.

2. Self moderate your language, you may not think you have said anything wrong, but occasionally it takes only part of a word to trigger moderation.

3. If you wish to report rule breaking it is best to provide evidence. Some people are clever at covering their tracks when they have pushed the limits of MOCpages rules, so by the time the mods read their comments they seem harmless. Visual evidence, in the form of a screen grab, is usually sufficient.

4. Try to be more patient, as I said before the group is not moderated in real time, all the mods and admins have other jobs which take us away from the net. Any query will be looked at within 48 hours, but even then, if there is nothing we can do to help, the reply you get may not be the one you are looking for.

5. Try to think of this more as technical support for future reference.

And the official line regarding "ads" is, we cannot deal with them, so just ignore them. Sean can only afford to continue offering this website for free by renting space on the website. But he doesn't control what those adverts are as they are generated randomly based on your browsing history.

If you see a "questionable" ad, it is best to provide VISUAL evidence, not post a link to the website. If you don't know how to post visual evidence - there are instructions under one of the (many) other conversations about adverts.

You mean he's posted more than Oliver King? That's pretty disappointing.

EDIT: Wait, I misread that. Oliver posted 20+ but that was months ago.

I meant in a four day period the most NEW conversations were created by one person. There is no set limit, but failing to look beyond the top 5 convos to see if there is an existing OPEN conversation is bad form, even if it isn't technically rule breaking.

Making a new conversation, because the previous one hasn't been responded to is unacceptable, and likely to get people put in the naughty list if it persists.

Once you've made your point - wait, a reasonable length of time for an official reply is 48hours - TWO DAYS.

My thinking the same. No need to make a conversation of every fault you see. Most cab answered in previous conversations. As for the slow business, it usually strikes newer members. Just be a little patient. And if you aren't a new member, the server is sometime slow. Thats it.

No. Your actually pretty fast. It's just that it can take awhile.

Re-reading your original question, it occurs to me that you might be worrying about the slow response times of the website in general. It does, at times when there are a lot of users on-line together, run VERY slow, taking minutes to load a single page, or display confirmation a comment has been posted.

It affects everyone, if you choose to stick around you will get used to it.

It should improve once the school holidays end (next week in some areas) when the traffic dies down a little.
