Literally. This is not a rant about how DDO is not what it once was, or anything like that. This is about how the website, physically is broken.

Now, I am aware not all of you may experience this... and my laptop(s) are by no means hugely reliable, these issues (some not all) are present (for me) on my laptop, phone and my family's PC (which works without fault [the PC]). And even though my current laptop is old and tired... other website work fine, so why shouldn't DDO?

So... what exactly is broken?

- DDO loads slower than nearly every other website I use
- Clicking "Yes" or "No" on an Opinion does nothing
- Trying to merely view replies on Opinions does not work
- Trying to select an option on Polls can be hard as it often does not respond
- Private Messaging (and this is even present on my phone) currently has this issue. http://gyazo.com...
- Often when clicking the profile picture, there is no response or the notifications fail to appear

That is what is broken. There are also other irritating aspects of DDO.

- Comments are never moderated
- Juggle does not reply to emails
- For me personally, Juggle does not send me a text to verify my account...
- The predictive text on polls is extremely annoying and intrusive

I apologise if this seems like just a massive rant, especially if anyone who runs the website happens to read this. But I really enjoy this website and spend a lot of time on it. So I feel these issues need addressing, unless it is just me who suffers these things. In which case... just ignore me.

I had that problem just after I joined, and it was randomly fixed. It's better now, I think, but I don't go to opinions that often.

- DDO loads slower than nearly every other website I use

1. That's internet speed, which would be a problem specifically on your end, or server problems, which would be on Juggle's end. Considering how the site loads fast on my laptop, I'm inclined to believe the former.
2. If it's loading slowly, stop downloading porn.

Quick show of hands who actually cares about the opinions or polls section?

...

No one? Figured

- Private Messaging (and this is even present on my phone) currently has this issue. http://gyazo.com...

Too busy at work to look into this. I'll see later.
- Often when clicking the profile picture, there is no response or the notifications fail to appear

Again, this is actually an internet connectivity issue (pretty sure).

That is what is broken. There are also other irritating aspects of DDO.

- Comments are never moderated

This is a bad thing?
- Juggle does not reply to emails
- For me personally, Juggle does not send me a text to verify my account...
- The predictive text on polls is extremely annoying and intrusive
