Pets keeps disappearing

Is anyone else having issues getting on Pets lately? Or when you go to refresh the page it says Pets.ca is not available....... May have moved...... yadda yadda yadda............. This has been happening to me about every 2nd time I've tried to refresh. Not as often when I try to open. It's very very frustrating. Almost makes you want to not try any more. FYI - the other sites I have open do not have this issue. Only Pets. Server issue?
I use Google Chrome mostly and occasionally IE and FF. Those, I believe are the up to date ones so I don't think they are the issue.

That sucks chico. Wonder if it's a server issue? Can't remember having either of those particular problems with the old server. But probably did. Very strange. Would be wonderful not to have those problems keep happening. I'm really sorry. I thought your problem had been rectified.

No mf, not at all. At this time of the year I could bring 5 or 6 new ones home every single day. That's about how often I'm asked if I "want" more cats.
But that's off topic....................

My internet here is TERRIBLE so I'm not of much help because I loose connection to sites all the time- BUT the only thing that does bug me on here is I ALWAYS have to re-login allllll the time. I'm a member of several reptile & exotics forum that have the same setup as pets and none of those ever give me that issue

Very strange. I don't think I've had that problem but maybe with the frequency the other one happens I've forgotten about the freeze.

Thanks Kathryn. Must have something to do with the server for the log in.

Sooo-- no answers? It happened again this morning two or three times. This is a brand new computer and, as I said yesterday, it only happens on Pets. It also happened on my old computer. It was one of the reasons I got a new comp. I thought maybe it was my comp. I don't know...... don't think my service provider has an issue with Pets so it must be the server on the other end.

I get that sometimes too and only on pets.ca. The last time it happened was just this past weekend.

Ok, this is getting more than annoying. I have to click on a thread about three times in order for it to finally open. That's after I've gone back and refreshed the page.
Wish someone would give me some answers!

Not exactly sure what to say 14+..

Normally when there's a global problem (like the site being down) we all feel it at the same time.

I can tell you that recently I've been having issues with my ISP and when I connect to Pets or any other site I get an error message...but that's due to the ISP not Pets.ca server. Just a thought.

I'm going to move this to troubleshooting subforum. Please add to it as necessary and i'll keep an eye out.

thx!
marko
