This has ben going on for some time now and I am wondering if anyone is trying to fix it.
I have to press the back arrow button 3 to 5 times to go back to the previous page.
Banners are also not working.

Works fine for me. I can use the backspace button, the back button on the browser, and I have one of my mouse buttons programmed to go back…all three ways working good for me.

sawdust, I’ve been experiencing the same with the back button…plus I don’t see the top three project page anymore…..I suppose it’s not long and this site will be history…..

I hope the top 15 on the main, front page returns soon – that was one of my favorite parts of the site.

I wouldn’t know about the back button issues, cause I am on dialup, and back buttons are a NO NO! Too damn much load time to reload anything. I use a right click an new tab on each post I read. Solves that problem, but I have noticed that the admins have loaded the site with a ton of junk garbage to track and advertise so much so that where typically a LJ page would load in a couple minutes before, it now takes on average 15 minutes for even the simplest page to load completely. Most never load completely, I have to terminate them as soon as the text becomes visible because a lot of these places timeout and hang, or worse cause a reset which kills and blanks the page. I am in the process of upgrading my old version of firefox so I can install blockers to terminate access to this crap being shoved down my throat.

I have been unable to see the top 15 all week. In fact that entire section only has a banner and that is it. So, I am completely missing the submissions. I am using Firefox version 26 on a linux machine.

I’ve been thinking I jacked up my comp somehow. I have to hit the back button 3-4 times and when viewing a project I have to refresh the page to change pics..

For me it only slow-loads early in the morning. But the Top 3 seems to be gone and the Top 15 is also missing, one of my favorites.
My banners are also not working, just white squares.
Did somebody go to the islands for vacation?

I also have to hit the back button 3-5 times to get to the previous page.

Is anybody listening and trying to fix this?

I’m not having ‘back’ button issues, but I am missing the Top 3 and the Top 15. I really do hope the administrators bring them back. Bring them back!

Instead of just complaining; has anyone tried to contact someone at LumberJocks? I emailed MsDebbie last week and she forwarded my email to the people that have some control over the website.

I’m guessing that the top 3 / 15 are missing due to the 2014 award feather they are working on but that’s just a guess.

I am not having any problems except there are multiple adds for HD on one page.

Yep have to hit the back button multiple times. The home page only shows the latest blogs, no Top 3 or recent project submissions. Not seeing any ads though
