May consider it. But at the same time, I'm getting close to the point where I'm gonna reduce my anime viewing load. Been getting harder over the past year to find anything that can grab my interest.

Maybe, when the thought to abandon a series occurs to me, I should watch one more episode just to be sure my initial impressions are correct.

Coppelion does have its fundamental flaws; I'm just hoping the character development may save the show. I've seen so many shows with a better second half already that I hate to give up early. I rather watch one mediocre show completely than abort three of them (which would frustrate me more).

...But since a new season is just a week or so away, I don't think I will restart any Fall series--unless maybe they are 24-26 episode ones. In the end, I found the fall season to be pretty mediocre, and only watched 7 series to the end (assuming I still don't abandon White Album 2, which seems very tiresome).

Looks like someone thoroughly shot my PC to pieces. ;-(
I noticed a modified cursor image - and I was on CAR when I became aware of it, that's why I thought it was from here.
Minutes later I found out that the cursor had changed in Windows as well. After trying a PC shutdown the machine (a new one, six weeks old) didn't even boot any more. (I'm on the old machine with the sporadic hard disk failures right now, repair of the new one is scheduled for monday.)

Also, to add stuff like the number of episodes in complete series. As soon as I'm finished, it'll be time to do the same for the Summer!

Those sound like network issues between the server and you. Except edit mode would be weird, as that's an entirely different URL...

So I dunno, I guess we can keep our eyes open for further issues and see if any patterns develop?

It seems that if I spend too much time on a page here (updating a review, perhaps) the page locks up and eventually I get a 'This page can't be displayed' message. If I haven't saved it somewhere else, I may lose whatever I have written. Could this be because I haven't accepted the urging to install Internet Explorer 11? (If it ain't broke...)

When I get the 'This page cannot be displayed' message, and click on 'Fix connection problems', what I get is “Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (anime.mikomi.org) is not responding”. If I wait awhile I can reconnect, but before long Mikomi locks up again—it seems to happen when I click on a button to save changes to a review or go to review mode,etc. If it happened while I was saving stuff, most of the time the content does indeed get saved, but I get disconnected. I just went to review mode (it took forever but eventually worked), and instead of the usual mode I get what I think must be Rebecca's editing mode. It has different typefaces and the table of contents (Add A New Series, What's New, By Rating, etc) is at the bottom of the page.

Even being an Ikuhara fan, I found myself too unsure of what Yuri Kuma Arashi is trying to offer up, especially as it looked far more blatant with the sexual undertones compared to Utena and Penguindrum.

I can come here to Mikomi, but I'm lucky if I can click on one or two things before the website locks up and I get an 'Oops!' message.

If I 'search titles' it takes forever to get the result, and when I do it's in the strange edit mode (no pictures, for one thing). Shout seem to work OK, however.

Some days Mikomi works well enough for me to get something done (though the responses to my clicks are always painfully slow) and on other days I can't even reach edit mode on the page I want to make an addition to. Is this just happening to me, or has there been a significant change in the number of visitors this website has gotten recently?

For me, it's like I have a 50/50 chance that I'll reach this website; if I do, and click on a series I want to edit, I have about a 50/50 chance that I'll reach that page without getting the 'Oops!' message; next, I have about a 50/50 chance I'll be able to enter 'edit' mode. Etc. Lately I've been adding particular pages to my list of 'favorites' in order to minimize the number of clicks it takes to reach them.

The 'What's New' page is in the same mode as always for me, but it seems that whenever I try to go to the page of a particular anime, that page (if I make it) will be in the strange edit mode--photos are not displayed and the stuff that's usually at the top of the page is at the bottom (and shout has been moved to the lower LEFT).

Yesterday, to my surprise I managed to get into edit mode for Death Parade and paste my review in place. Most surprising of all, the unusual edit mode never showed up and this was all done as usual. I made changes, and got an 'Oops!' message, but I see today that the review was saved. The first time I tried to log on to Mikomi today I couldn't even reach the website at all, but on the third try I made it this far--and typed this Shout.

Ironically all I did was disable the "page speed" extension. I haven't actually changed that config for like two years, but, eh… maybe an update to that module was causing issues.

It doesn't seem to have fixed all the problems (I got an 'Oops' after making changes), but this is much better than before. Previously I was so frustrated that I was tempted to give up trying to make entries here.

I still get 'This page cannot be displayed' or 'Oops!' every now and then, but things are working fairly well. If I get one of those messages, I find that immediately trying to log on again always fails, but if I wait a few minutes it should succeed. In general, I can conduct several operations on Mikomi before I get an 'Oops', whereas previously they came so soon that I couldn't get much of anything done.

One last thing to try to stabilize your situation: I'm upgrading the Perl (which'd fallen out of support anyway) and all of the packages it uses.

At one point yesterday I was locked out of Mikomi because I had to Login (usually I don't need to do this), and when I tried, I got a message of 'System Error'. But obviously I was able to Login normally today.
