Terrible Downloading Experience

[Copy link]

WOW today was really really bad. Just so terrible I just gave up! It wasn't just extremely slow with many starts and stops, several times it stopped altogether and I had to download again. Two patterns I had to download multiple times (at cost!) and the second one I still haven't managed after 3 attempts. Please fix this. This problem is going from bad to worse.

Well i've been trying now for about an hour and a half and its the same as last night. Only small pdf files will complete downloading at a very slow pace. Rar files and files larger dan 1MB are basically not downloadable. They download a few hundred kb and then cancel themselves. Very frustrating, hope this passes soon.

Untill now I downloaded all the patterns I wanted (some with a few problems) Which pattern did you wanted to download?  Post time 2017-3-10 22:30

I think it was just a glitch that charged for the first time I re-downloaded on Tuesday (and after which I checked to see if I was being charged and didn't bother after that). Since then I did a bit of math when I was less tired and frustrated and considering I had to make at so may attempts, I would have a lot less than I do. So I stand corrected.

But my main problem wasn't the cost but the fact that I had to make so many attempts, and that each attempt (of a rar or zip file) took between 10-15 min. So just imagine how long I spent on just trying to download those 2 files, each 3 times, the second one unsuccessfully, besides two more that only had to make one attempt at. Fortunately yesterday was better with no multiple attempts, and while still slow, it was more like 5 min. But still no where near my norm.

I had same problems. It is unusual but if it does happen again just wait till next day and go into the blue download arrow at top of page and ask to see all downloads. The ones that failed will be shown . If you click on retry it will usually download properly this time. It is less stressful for you . If that fails then wait a couple of days and try again. Repeatedly retrying won't really help if there is a glitch on the website. These repeated attempts shouldn't cost you any coins as the first payment allows further downloads for a very long time. I've accidentally deleted downloaded files in the past and have been able to go back & download again several months later for free.

No, you don't have to pay for download again.

When a download isn't going as well, you can click again on the words "when the download doesn't start in 3 seconds click here"
So down click away this page before checking if the download went well.

Did you click away the page (it happens ) go to iBooks, it's for free (at least it says so). I did it once and it was realy for free.

It happend to me to that I downloaded and that the rar was gone and the rar.part had stayed, that's not how it has to happen, so I removed everyting and started again. Had to do it 3 times before all was as it should.

It has nothing to do with your computer or even internet connection. I have a high speed connection and a lightning fast computer and have had the same problems. Took three tries for one PDF last week.
I also got an internal error in red after paying the cost of the pattern and had to return to the pattern page to click a second time to download. It's really quite frustrating!

Are you sure about having to pay to download again? I downloaded earlier and although it was slow it did download eventually. I just tried to download that again and I wasn't charged again the gold coin and it did download much faster. I hope it speeds up for you too.

Has anyone received a message "For make a Gold Coin you must have at least 0 (the forum Download attachment Gold Coin-30". The price for a chart showed 50 coins, i had 58. The points got deducted, but i can't download the pattern.

The forum cost for a download is always 30 GC (except for repaints that are 199 GC). The uploader's price is on top of that. So that would be 50 + 30 = 80 GC.  Post time 2017-4-8 02:37

I experience this problem too.  I suspect it is because I am using an older computer and it just can't work fast enough.

Since I have no problems downloading elsewhere I can't see how it can be my computer or connection. The problem is only at this forum. Are you sure your computer is guilty?  Post time 2017-3-8 04:18

sometimes the site is really slow, it has nothing to do with your computer. but if you go to ibooks, you can download again, and  don't have to pay anymore.

While you don't have to pay the uploader price again you still have to pay the 30 GC forum cost every time you download. I checked to see how much less had since I started. But thanks.  Post time 2017-3-8 04:58
