    Nope, no unique to your PC. Seems as though there are some database issues.

    Must be Basenotes' New Year's resolution! Performance has greatly deteriorated so far this year.

    The site has been almost unusable for me for the past several days. I get failures to load pages well over 50% of the time, and most of the time I am forced to give up and try again later.

    Same here. On and off, and I experienced an "unable to connect to the database" error at one point.

    Terrible time this morning getting on basenotes. It wouldn't load properly, just showed the bar at the top and that was it. Tried on and off for 3 hours. Pretty frustrating and the problems seem to be getting worse.

    It's been going on for quite a while that lagging and connection drop outs and been unable to connect to the site is becoming the normal state of play.

    I get the PM notifications, no problem with that.
    Browsing on BN has always been a weakness, unfortunately.

    Not only has the site been slow, but I'm also getting Nordstrom's fragrance section opening in another tab at random when I'm browsing Basenotes. Is anyone else getting this?? It's bizarre.

    Really getting sick of the constant inaccessibility. Why does this happen all the time - I mean many times a week? No other site I frequent has this much trouble being up for any length of time. Any time of the day, it's a toss-up.

    Please explain why. Is the site hosted on a home PC? Is the site so flawed in its back-end that it warrants a complete-from-scratch redesign? This has been going on for YEARS.

    Along with the incredible delay in posting reviews, I'm very ready to just fully jump ship to Fragrantica.com. Only once or twice have I ever had an issue with them.

    It's worse today. Although the site and the links are accessible, each forum home page is not updating, Activity stream not streaming, and database errors are all over when trying to post.

    ^ Yup. Forums are accessible, and fast, but database is not updating, and I'm still not getting email notifications from pm's, and subscribed threads.

    Could be hosted on a home pc. I'm not too sure. Lately its been slow and lots of database errors.

    I'm glad I'm not alone - I've been having some real problems. Very frustrating. I'm sure the admins are on to it - let's hope it's resolved soon.

    Site is extremely painful to use right now. Hope steps are in the works to fix it.

    Brings back memories of being on a 28.8 dial-up modem, but worse.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up. I've been a member of Basenotes for six years and we have suffered with these performance issues for the entire time. Even at its best the site has been frustratingly slow.

    Everything was going so well; the site was smooth & reasonably fast in the months up to Christmas, but in January it's been molasses...

    I don't get what the issue is. Do the servers just suck? There are some members that pay to support the site, so you'd think with ads and that money it would be able to handle the load. I work for a few larger forums and they all manage to load perfectly with the same ad/premium style system.

    I love the site, don't get me wrong, but it is definitely annoying more times than not. Also the whole posts not being bumped thing...
