Default Unanswered: Does it seem the self-loading WW ads are affecting your session(s)?

Some background:
We have 5 accts across the 3 zones & on 4 servers.
I/we play on multiple computers [pc, laptop, netbook]
at multiple sites [libraries (mult. branches of local & a univ), hotspots]
and using mult. browsers [ie, Safari, Firefox, Chrome]
and often have up to 5 sessions open & multiple other window for other work at the same time [often as high as 12-15] as well as applications [Excel].

There normally are the occasional glitches, drops, freezes, etc.

BUT
this week it has been nearly impossible to get past a 10 minute session at a time
unless there is just the 1 or 2 windows on the computer
and wifi connections are having fits
when several, or even one window has a connection to WW.

The last few days I've also been reading about problems others are having,
especially with jumpiness and sluggishness.

I have worked designing/coding many business applications (mainframe,
non-oop, etc) for systems that were high-security and consistency oriented
(uptimes over 99.4%) with a hugh emphasis on design & testing every
possible situation & huge test environments.
But I focused on the applications, not the hardware side.

The WW shop, for many reasons, obviously is not on that level.
They also should design for an awful huge number of user environments
and simply do not have the resources to test all of these.

I've been trying to figure out why the sudden increase in issues, and am
asking any technical-oriented users what the likelihood is that the
implementation of the new, self-loading ads may be the cause.
Or is it likely completely coincidental?

Thanks for any insights.

Yes! Every time I log in it Please Waits me for up to 10 minutes!! Sometimes I wish they wouldn't animate their ads. It only messes up the computer's loading process and makes me not want to play Webkinz. I hope they fix this!!

I think its also the animated ads... I really wish they would not have added those... they should have made it where you have to click to see it's animation.

The animated ads seemed to cause fits for us.

And if anyone tried to press a link as an ad decided to update.

I really hope they decide to drop that feature.

In another thread someone said they'd called Ganz yesterday
about the slowness & jerkiness of some items
and Ganz said they knew they had a problem on their end
and were working on it.

So, I guess we'll see

During the horrifically disappointing FALL NON FEST I t was figured out the best way to even have a chance was to be in a room or on on a dock page with NO moving ads! Otherwise the leaves never appeared or worse yet overloaded and page locked up!
