Has this site been down for anyone else today?  It's been very sporadic for me this afternoon.

Yes, there do seem to be some system-wide glitches going on -- perhaps the technical Team is feeding the hamsters that run in the wheel to power our servers ... angel

Glad I am not the only one. Seems to be okay right now and hope it stays. I want to click on my "mailed this book" buttons before it goes off again if it does.

I hate when that happens and am always worried that I won't be able to print a mailing label or mark books as having been shipped (that did happen once), or can't accept books ordered or accept WLed books offered to me.  Glad it's back up now.  Pat

This happened to me also. Plus, very often the site is slow to respond. Makes me wonder if the server for the site doesn't have much band width. I wonder where the site is housed.

Site speed is NEVER an issue for me so it's probably your internet provider.

I couldn't get on the site at all this afternoon, glad things are working again.

I always worry that I'm the only one having issues, but it sounds like the site was experiencing problems overall.

bookmark this website for future use:

I have found it very useful for many site challenges, but usually not for PBS.

ok, you jinxed me, for the past hour this site has been horribly slow......to the point where I didn't think it was accepting any of the tags I input much less books I was adding to my TBR.

Today (and the last few times I've tried to edit) my Profile in My Settings...it erases everything instead of saving changes.  I'm just going to give up and write my notes etc. on a scratch paper.  Takes too long to recreate it all again and again.

Len posted in Bizzy's link thread that they are working on the editor, so I imagine it will take a few days to get the bugs worked out.  Denise, have you tried a different brower?
