I first started noticing this on TSG, but I'm positive it's not this site...


Usually when I go to a page all the pics don't completely load properly. If I hit refresh...sometimes I get lucky and they're all there.

The same thing happens to me

The main body of the page loads but the post icons down the left hand side don't load - so I don't know which threads I have posted to - I cleaned the computer out and rebooted and still didn't work. This computer is a 4 year old win98.

I have a new 2 gig XP computer sitting next to me on another desk - so I moved the dial-up connection to that computer and tried it - I get exactly same thing

I can't find another site that does not load - everywhere else I go works perfect - as it affects both computers, I would say that rules out a problem on the computers

Which leaves 3 possibilities
1. ISP
2. Telephone line
2. TSG

1. & 2. Everything and everywhere else works except this site, I checked the speed with several speed test sites - and I get the same rubbish dial-up speed as usual - so that rules out ISP and the Telephone line

My conclusions are that it is this site - yet this is the first time I have seen this mentioned - and I dont see how it can be the site, or there would be a lot more people mentioning it

This has happened at least 5 or 6 times to me - all I can do is go somewhere else and keep checking back untill it cures itself

I get it all the time, but only since I installed XP SP1 and OE6 latest security updates.

It's only small icons, smilies etc it happens on. do a right click on one of them and show picture and it sorts it out for the page, until you move away again

Many other forums report the same problems, no cure yet found

Another M$ improvement

Steam-Must be associated with different systems or connections. Mine are all there. In fact I didn't know about the "you have posted here icon".

I guess I wouldn't use it much because you are notified if somebody post to the thread.

What I do in Random is I have a icon shorcut to a folder in my Favorites and put all my posts there so I don't have to search for that everytime.

Hi Deke

My 2 computers could not be more different - one is 4 years old with win98 etc. - the other new with XP - yet when the problem is there - it is on both computers - and how could my ISP or telephone line affect only this one site ?

It' a mystery - and one I don't expect anyone has the answer to !

Well, sometimes it happens on my forum. The main stuff loads but the smiles and some of the icons don't. This mean that yes, TSG may be a problem, but I think it's something with explorer.

What you describe is exactly what happens to me

On a 4 year old win98 with updates etc.

But also on a new fresh out of the shop XP machine with no updates and no service packs - just as it left the factory - pre installed.

Well my machine is completely updated...service packs, drivers, hotfixes, you name it. I guess I'll just have to deal with it for now.
