It’s been about 4 weeks now that my LJ takes FOREVER to download. The problem is ONLY with my LJ. I can surf any site on the web, and it downloads in less than a second, because I have Roadrunner. I can even surf other LJ’s, and it will download instantly; not so with MY Live Journal.

I’m not kidding, I count up to 60 seconds, and still, my LJ has NOT downloaded. This is worse than if I had dial up!!

I now have an added problem with LJ, and it started maybe two days ago. It is IMPOSSIBLE to copy and paste!!

I have a paid account, and have paid for a couple of LJ friend’s Paid Account as a gift. I’m becoming more and more frustrated. I love my LJ, but these problems I’ve been experiencing are for the birds. If this continues, I’ll have no choice but to look elsewhere for a journal.

I have no idea who to contact for help on this frustrating matter!!

I've noticed the same problem on your LJ.

See, I thought I was the only one experiencing this SLOW process on my LJ. I had no idea that those visiting my LJ, were experiencing the same thing, also!

Thanks for the link!

It may be the particular cluster of servers where your journal sits. As the previous poster said, contact lj_support and they'll tell you what's up. As for the copy and paste issue, this seems to be occurring within Internet Exploder. ;) Not so with Firefox.

I can copy and paste on ALL site I visit throughout the web, and I can copy and paste when editing my own homepages pages, but NOT on my LJ. The problems I'm experiencing stem form LJ for sure.

Thank you, I'll try that link and hope they will find a solution to this most aggravating problem I've recently started to experience on my own LJ.

It's impossible to copy and paste, because when I try to copy, nothing happens. It doesn't highlight so I can even use the key combinations you've stated.

Thank you!

I can say the same...your page really takes a long time to load for me...even when I view it under Friends' Entries. I have high speed too and yours seems to be the only page doing this. I thought it might be due to the large numbers of replies to your journal...but other journals I visit with large number of replies don't seem to suffer the same way.

Hope it straightens out quickly for you!

A friend suggested I put my YouTube videos behind a cut. I just did the cuts. Could you please check to see if my LJ is still slow in downloading?

I've surfed LJ with many more replies than mine, and theirs downloads instantly.

It might have something to do with all the external links to youtube you're posting. If these were behind a cut you might find that it loads more quickly.
Sep. 19th, 2006 02:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the tip. I've just now put all YouTubes behind a cut.

It's still going slow for me. Could you check to see if my LJ still downloads slowly for you?

You can't go anywhere, I just found you recently. You are not boring, so you cannot leave. You have to stay and amuse me for a while longer before leaving. Got it? *mock glare and growl* Grrrr.

Seriously though, have you tried changing your LJ format? If you have a custom format, that might be lagging you. It shouldn't, but it might. I access LJ via my browser (Firefox) and have very little trouble.
Sep. 20th, 2006 03:46 am (UTC)
Bless your heart! :o)

I just changed the format. No, I don't have a custom one, just a plain and simple one. I've put all graphics and videos behind a cut. I've edited my graphics to download no longer than 4 seconds, and still I'm going slow.

Hmm. Took about 2 seconds for me to load your LJ.

But I do have cable modem. Oh well. No problems here.
Sep. 20th, 2006 03:35 am (UTC)
I do too. The slowness happened recently and I can't imagine why.

Glad my LJ downloads fast for you. :o)
Sep. 19th, 2006 03:29 pm (UTC)
I had the copy/paste issue too using Safari on my Mac. To fix the problem I just turned on the old site style which you can do here.
Sep. 19th, 2006 11:08 pm (UTC)
I did as you said, and I can now copy and paste again. Thank you so much for your help!!
Sep. 19th, 2006 04:12 pm (UTC)
your lj loads very quickly for me.
i still use dialup and my browser is firefox.
and i also have a paid account.
Sep. 19th, 2006 11:23 pm (UTC)
I'm glad that it downloads fast for you. It's strange that it goes slow for some, and slow for others, including for me.
Sep. 19th, 2006 05:00 pm (UTC)
I have been having delays too, but I thought it was due to server problems.

PLEASE DON'T leave us!!!

Love you!!
Sep. 19th, 2006 10:19 pm (UTC)
It appears others have had this problem, also.

I've already found a place that offers journals, and have opened an account with them. I hope I won't have to change to that one, because I really love Live Journal, but if I continue having these problems, I will have to start writing about my life over there. I won't delete this one for sure and will try to post ever-so-often.

OK here you go, first off you have a ton of graphics on your LJ. LJ has to take time to load them. Try removing graphics from postings that are over a week old. Secondly, all the UTube stuff takes time to load as well. Same would apply with that. Maybe remove them after a day or two.

Without all the graphics things should load faster.

You are slow loading for me and it slows down my frineds page. I have a superfast connect too.
Sep. 19th, 2006 10:14 pm (UTC)
I've taken off all the graphics and put the Youtube's under a cut, and it's still going slow.

I'm surfing other peoples LJ's with huge animated graphics and they download fast. For example, I've made the picture of the Pope to download in 4 seconds.

I took off all the graphics that was showing in your Friend's page. Please check your Friend's page and let me know if it still downloads slow. I don't believe it will, because I've made sure my graphics do not show on your first page.

When I go to edit my Friend's list, it takes 4 to 5 whole MINUTES to download. Something is terribly wrong. I never had this problem before, just as I could always copy and paste when editing. Not anymore.

I also have a super-fast connection (Roadrunner), also, with pages downloading completely in less than a second.

The problem I have is with LJ.

Maybe you need to do a cleaning of history and temp internet files. Are you using Explorer? Got to tools, Internet options.
Sep. 20th, 2006 03:48 am (UTC)
I've already cleaned everything. I've got Explorer.

Sure hope my LJ will someday download faster!!

Talk to the goat!

I sent an email to lj support yesterday, but still no reply. Do you think I have to go to the goat, also?

Is it fixed?
It loaded real fast for me.

Re: Is it fixed?
Somebody helped me fix the copy and paste problem, but I still have the problem of it downloading too slow.

It's slow for others, like me. :o(

And fast for others like you. :o)
