I've Had It!

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

That's it, I have reached my breaking point. I am SO tired of the glitches on the Spar site, from being misdirected to things not loading to my entire system freezing up. The final straw came this morning after reading a Daily Spark Blog. I wanted to save it to my favorites, and it kept telling me to log on to save. How many times does one need to log on in the span of 2 minutes???? I don't want to hear, 'Maybe it's your computer,' as I have NO PROBLEMS ON ANY OTHER SITE!

I did this journey for 3 years on my own, I joined Spark in the hopes of learning, and I have learned some things. I am not one of those who needs a support system.........I am way to independent for that, and I lost close to 100 pounds before joining Spark. Yes, I have lost more weight since joining, but it hasn't been a team effort. Navigating here has just become to frustrating.

I will probably pop in from time to time (I HAVE become a streak junkie,) but don't look for me on a regular basis. It's just not worth the stress.

I needed to vent, thanks for listening.

    I understand completely! I get pretty frustated with these sites that lock up. It was happening to me today also and I hadn't been on the site for weeks. I wish I had your independent stamina to go it alone - but I feel better about my future if I keep my sparkfriends at close range. It gives me hope. You however my dear are a whirlwind who needs to be reckoned with! I mean that in the best possible way. I know you will continue to do great and keep motivated. Keep me in the loop. :) Congrats on the motivator of the day!

    I think it's ironic that you were voted MOD today, when you posted this about Spark. LOL - well, congrats on all your achievements, and hope that the glitches work themselves out.

    Hey Linda - as you can tell, there are others with similar problems; however, I truly understand your feelings. Even though we no longer communicate, I do enjoy your quotes and blogs. You are a very strong person and will continue to do great in your journey with or without SP. Hope all is well and you have a wonderful holiday season. I missed you at the race this year emoticon Be well and happy. emoticon emoticon

    Since they upgraded, I've been at a emoticon pace if using IE. With Firefox or Opera, I've had better luck. Not good, but better. I do wish they'd realize that not everyone has broadband on the latest computer. emoticon vent..vent...gnash...

    PLEASE do keep in touch! You make valuable & fun contibutions. (And I'm a quote junkie too!) Spark will be poorer without you.

    I'm sorry you are having such continued problems. I'll miss you and your blogs.

    We will miss you. I now that sometimes it is slow enough to drive me goofy. I don't know if it is my computer or the site. I have a tendency to get ahead of myself fairly often. I hope you have luck weight wise. emoticon

    I have trouble using Explorer and use either Firefox and Google Chrome almost all the time now. Maybe that will help you. I know I sure look forward to you blogs and pictures and would sure miss them if you were not here.

    I used to have issues like you noted when I was using Internet Explorer. Now that I use Firefox, things have been a breeze. No problems to speak of since switching browsers. Maybe worth a try.

    Best of luck to you.

    Which browser are you using? Maybe try Firefox or Chrome. I use Firefox and have no issues with the site whatsoever. That said, I too lose more weight on my own. Good luck to you. Although I haven't communicated directly, I've enjoyed reading your posts. All the best to you!

    It happens to me too........I've noticed it happening more if I have more than one window to SP open at a time. Good luck

    Hi Linda
    It can be frustrating, I tried to open your blog and couldn't, but it wasn't a Spark problem, internet explorer was not working. I agree at times it seems there are problems with Spark and the requirement of logging in has happened.
    I am sorry we are not going to see you much, please reconsider and stay with us.

    One great thing about Spark is being able to vent.
