    OK, I don't complain b/c I don't pay for it, and it is by far the best site to talk fragrance...I tolerate the slowness, but wanted to make sure it wasn't something unique to my PC.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
