difficulties getting to Proteacher website

I don't know if it is just my network, but I had difficulties trying to get to the PT website this morning. I switched browers, thinking it was just a problem with Chrome, but Firefox and Safari were also not opening PT. Obviously I did eventually get on PT, but I wonder if anyone else has experienced any problems lately.

I'm having the same problem and know others are too. Someone sent a message to the editor but I get the feeling that it's not being monitored much.

I can get into different boards by doing an internet search for PT but canít get on the home page. I connected to other pages by using my iPadís history and because I usually donít sign out of PT.

I got in without trouble first thing this morning but then it died. Can't get in on Chrome or Safari. Switched to Microsoft Edge and connected. I think this isn't good.

*Now I can only connect thru browser on fire tablet. Hope this isn't the beginning of the end, but if it is I've enjoyed your company thru the years.

Same. Can't get to the homepage from a bookmark or typing in proteacher.net. Got in by finding a lounge page I still had open on my phone. Weird.

I also couldn't get on earlier this morning from my phone. I got on just fine now on my computer, so maybe it's better now? I think my phone probably uses Chrome and my computer uses Safari.

I can't get on on my phone at all (Safari). I can only get on on my MacBook by going to my history and clicking on an old post. The home screen doesn't load but all of the other favorite pages do, once I'm on.

Couldn't get on using Chrome, but I could with Firefox. I started to panic thinking the site closed down and I'd never talk to my "friends" again

Same here. I could not get on by goin to the site address, but did when I googled it. The to get to another board I had to do a search on the site which finally took me back to the lounge.

I told my husband that I was bummed about not being able to get on and he said ďwho cares, like goes on.Ē He obviously doesnít get it.

I can access my boards but canít get the homepage today. Iím very sad at the thought of PT coming to an end. I have a strong suspicion about why that may be happening, and Iím really ticked that it came to that. I hope Iím wrong!

It was fine in the am, but now itís incredibly slow to load. Iím also stuck on the Lounge page. I canít go home or to other boards.

I only use my iPhone with Firefox as my browser.

Verrrrrry slow here.

Fiona, I have no clue why PT would end. Will you please share your guess? And the saddest thing for me today is I’m really grateful for something and can’t post it.

I just figured out that if I go on incognito mode, I could get here. I remember reading someone talking about ďthe end,Ē so I was worried that it was here already.

I would really be so sad if ProTeacher came to an end. I've seriously made so many friends on here and would be super sad to not have this as an option to come and talk.
I know the editor has been MIA recently and chat won't work but I truly value this place as an option for so many reasons.
I don't know if it "coming to an end" has anything to do with the editors not being able to attend to it or if it's something else but we've been rolling along largely unsupervised for a while. Like Linda, I wonder if there is a way for one or a group of us to take it over.

Amiga, I have no idea who owns Proteacher, but the site hasn't undergone any meaningful updates or even maintenance in a long time. The editor feature failed long ago. I perhaps incorrectly assume the site isn't generating enough income to make it worth the owner's cost to maintain it. Things stop working.

I hope I'm wrong and this is just a glitch. I just used the incognito function someone mentioned and got into the lounge but home doesn't work.

In the past when there have been issues with the site or itís going through maintenance, the Editor has always posted a message. Cruxian stated above that someone sent the Editor a message so not hearing anything from them is very strange.

I couldn't get on until I googled Pro Teacher and clicked on the Vent Board and then to my own name and" Find more posts by Linda". So bizarre. My first thought this morning was exactly what some of you have mentioned. Is Pro Teacher losing it's ground? Is it ending now? That would be so strange and sad.

With all of the people who post here and all of the ads, one would think that the owners could still support it financially.

I do like the idea of someone from here taking it over. I also think that as many people who post regularly on this site as possible should write to the editors to talk about how much they enjoy posting here and that they would be devastated if the site was no longer here.

Maybe those interested in taking it over can pitch that option.

Hooping someone will listen.

There is another teacher site that I used to read and post on that many people left. I occasionally look at it to see if anyone posts and hardly anyone does, but it is still there and people could still post if they want to. If a site that no longer gets traffic can stay up, why canít one like this with many posters engaging each day?
