Is anyone else finding the site unbearably slow?

    Yes! I was actually trying to download some TS3 stuff earlier, and I just gave up after a while, because it was sooo slow. I don't always have that problem though, only once in a while.

    Ok so it's not just me? That's so weird. Are you a subscriber?

    I find it unbearably bad. Why use a site that is full of ads, adware, and commercial CC. Subscriptions?! Seriously?

    Have you not discovered the way of Tumblr?

    Edit: that said, bless them for TSR Workshop :relaxed: That is some awesome software!

    I stopped using TSR after all of the ads gave me a virus. I have always found it slow.

    TSR is impossible for me to use without an adblock, the ridiculous amount of ads slows it to a crawl, and it's super annoying when I have several tabs open looking for multiple things. With that there's the 1 minute wait to download though, which doesn't count down unless you're on the tab, so I gave up on it and I stick to tumblr, MTS, etc.

    TSR was horribly, painfully slow before I became a VIP. I mean, the "10 second" wait... would take at the very least a minute to start my download. I got so frustrated with the slow times, I just pay the 3.50 now to be a VIP. Instant downloads are worth it, to me.

    Yes, I've been a subscriber forever. I've noticed that it's also during certain times of day when the site is slower, so I usually try to download my CC earlier in the day. That doesn't always work, of course, as today. :'(

    My firewall is constantly blocking malicious malware when I'm looking around on that site. It's so annoying, it must be coming from all those adds.

    I tried going on there today for the fun of it for the first time in a year and I couldn't stand it. It's nothing more than 90% ads. I downloaded 2 pieces of cc (a crib and a re color) and it took almost a minute to start downloading after the ten seconds because of all the ads trying to load. And not only that, I had to have a full scan of my PC because I got a virus by just being on the site. They claim they put these ads because the website runs on ads and subs. But it being the largest sims cc site out there, they don't need more than 2-3 ads on a page. That website is complete trash.

    I refuse to download anything from there unless it's something I know I'll use all the time. The ads are killer.

    Not a subscriber. The ad block made it take even longer to download which sucks. They still have an excellent selection of CC though so I struggle through it.

    mysims4blog is not a cc site, it just points up things you can get on other sites, so you still have to go to those sites to download them.
