The mobile Lounge appears to be loading 80% faster after a major speed upgrade we installed last night. We are still working on loading the pictures a little faster as well as other things - we are not done yet. This new format in the Lounge allows you to hit a button at the bottom of the page to load as many posts as you want. This will prevent good posts from getting buried as easy, and it massively improves the speed. We've been working on this for approximately two weeks and I think it has accomplished my goal for making the Lounge as fast as it can be. There will be a few bugs though, due to the nature of this big change, so please let me know on this post if any normal functions are not working, thanks!

I am not a fan of the this feature AT ALL...Yes it may increase the speed of the lounge but it makes it impossible for people to catch up on what happened earlier in the day and the day before. With the amount of increased posts and constant spamming it makes it impossible to go back that far to find stuff... I know a lot of people who got back several pages and work their way back until they catch up to what is on the current page and now that is impossible on the app..Then on the MY mousewait you have to do the exact same thing for your own posts which for pretty much loses are capability to show others old posts, bump old poss or find those posts you made a year or two ago...I would take functionality over the speed, the speed does not seem to be as big of an issue as it use to be and with the new Iphone coming out with the A6 processor that speeds things up quite a bit - Dave  13499.2 #2 9:28PM
agreed. The tribe has spoken - misschurro  6362.4 #17 9:29PM
More like the banana has spoken. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 9:32PM
yes, everything he said. - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 9:34PM
Yes. What that Dave guy said. πŸ˜„ - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 9:36PM
What he said. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 9:38PM
If I could 'like' this, I would. (And yes, I have restarted my phone, the app and updated my phoneπŸ˜•) - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 9:45PM
Completely agree Dave!! No bueno!!!! πŸ‘Ž - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 9:47PM
Yes, especially the spamming part. To many posts by people in one day and I don't care if it's a newbie or an old MW'r. My posts of pix of my kids and grand kids are as important as 14 posts of the same flowers, signs characters or whatever, I scrolled for ever trying to find them but could only find them in my feed and not one comment or reply, it was a little disheartening. I don't need validation on my pix just would like to share them. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 9:48PM
Plus, I hate only seeing like 6 posts at a time. The lounge moves SO fast, that its impossible to keep track without pages. When you hit 'show more posts' the are the same ones you just saw, because more 10 people just posted... - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 9:48PM
I LOVED when we had around 20-25 posts a page, in that number only about 5 or so are worth reading and you can scroll through pretty fast as it is - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 9:50PM
I agree SIC, I loved the 15 to 20 a page then you can just skim and jump from page to page if you want to but you cant do this anymore and you have no idea where the last post was that you read based on a time stamp or like HMACF she had to go 45 minutes back and still could not find it cause the app crashed...thats not faster - Dave   13499.2 #2 9:52PM
i've definitely had issues with MW being slow in the past but i agree about the functionality over speed. if i have to scroll back for 45 minutes was it really worth it to choose "speed"? - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 10:01PM
also ensures that RAKS will consume 10 minutes of load mores....no easily escaping them - Dave   13499.2 #2 10:18PM
Agree as well - Hendizl  2822.0 #46 10:21PM
Here here - templeclan  54.8 #4584 10:23PM
Thank you for saying this Dave. I feel like I am missing lots - Deltachiq  1232.3 #139 10:24PM
If I could like this I would. And agree with Dave - Pats_Fan  140.1 #2886 10:27PM
This lounge has formed a very close community with people they have known for years or just two days. When you take a feature like this out it gets rid of being able to make sure that you see everything in the lounge and can form relationships or get to know somebody by the posts they make. if you get rid of going back a few hours or even a day a lot is lost for a lot of members and it disconnects old and new members of what is going on at the parks and whats going the word on the streets - Dave   13499.2 #2 11:15PM
Agree, I don't like this new feature at all. And it's not any faster. In fact its slower because each time I hit Show More Posts it bumps me back to the first post without refreshing so I'm losing time re-scrolling. - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID  1036.1 #177 12:04AM
Agree and "Like"! I'm one who would go back several pages to see what I have missed during the day, but it takes too long this way. - Gia  802.0 #231 12:45AM
I agree with everything you have said. I also go back like 10 pages and work my way up when I have missed a day or more on MW. Also this feature feels like a FB feature. And I don't like that. I love the numbers. Also (I know it will be worked out) but there has been a lot of glitches. Like when I hit show more post it shows the last two posts twice in the middle. And sometimes the show more mists button isn't there. Also with this new feature my MW closes automatically all the time. It may be faster loading. But it makes the user take longer to get to things. - ImAlwaysCrazy  674.5 #297 9:23AM
Here,here!!! - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 9:27AM
πŸ‘ - missgoofy  371.6 #614 10:50AM
Thank you Dave. I also am not liking this at all especially if app force closes then I have to start all over instead of go directly to page I was onπŸ˜‚ - Tinkerbellmom4  440.2 #497 12:43PM
I agree, I miss the page numbers! - JessM4  269.6 #1171 1:18PM
I agree. I wish I had the page numbers from before. I always would start at page 10 and work back upto 1. - proudcanuck  478.6 #445 1:25PM
Like - PrincessDuckie  905.1 #202 1:34PM
For some reason I can't "like" what Dave said...but I completely agree. 😁 - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 1:38PM
I also would LIKE this if I could. It makes me turn off MW. I don't enjoy being frustrated. And Splash I TOTALLY agree with the spam! Those pics are not more important than the family that is there and only posts a few. But theirs don't seem to count to the spammers. - SueBayou  2019.0 #78 1:40PM
Sometimes, when I get to "show more posts," I just close out and check my other apps. Seems to me that more posts would get buried this way, as I, and maybe others, will only see the first few posts. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 5:25PM
Yep blue fairy, I'm sure your not the only one, I've noticed a major lack of partication in the lounge and I'm sure this just is one more reason for it...I'm turning into a PC only user for the lounge a it takes to long to load more and it jumps from screen to screen and I lose where I was and have to start over and just give up - Dave   13499.2 #2 6:42PM
I'm sticking to using my MacBook now!! I like to be able to look at past posts and using the page numbers to gage where to look for a particular post. By looking at a date of a post, you can gage how many pages to go through to find a previous post more easily. I can't imagine now trying to search for something using my phone. It would take me all day and prob not find it! I liked also having more posts on one page. Now I just see the same posts over and over again on page after page. I feel like I am missing out on quality posts now that I won't see :( - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 7:08PM
Is there any way to keep the speed and the page numbers? I confess: I want to have my cake and eat it too. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 11:38PM
How can I see posts from earlier this morning without users shame bumping them for me? - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 8:47PM
It also helps to hard-reset the iPhone. I use this frequently when testing. It doesn't delete anything and you'll lose no settings. Press and hold the Power & Home buttons at the same time, ignoring the red slider to power the phone down. Continue to hold the buttons until the Apple logo appears. You're done. - SergZak  3125.8 #43 7:24AM
Yes you are right, this helps all of your apps when you do this! - Admin  7:28AM
thanks. Just did that on my iPad - misschurro  6362.4 #17 7:28AM
I am unable to 'Like' this - misschurro  6362.4 #17 7:30AM
I can't like anything. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 8:23AM
Well, I can like replys but not the original comments. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 8:46AM
Great tip. Thanks! - Twitterpated  273.0 #1139 9:29AM
Thanks - tish  264.7 #1214 10:12AM
Will the new iOS be compatible with MW? - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 10:28AM
There shouldn't be any major issues with iOS 6 but if there are, I'm sure they'll be fixed ASAP. - SergZak  3125.8 #43 11:57AM
Thanks 4 the great info! - coll  31.4 #5856 12:07PM
Just did this and it seemed to help! πŸ‘ - disneykimmi  117.0 #3284 11:12PM
Commenting is so much faster! Thanks Admin! πŸ˜ƒ - Duchess_SMK  6340.7 #18 7:37AM
I thanked early on because I appreciate all what admin does but I also agree w/ the comments. Too easy to get lost and difficult to find things. I know 'change' is better but sometimes leaving things 'as is' is the way to go. Keep up the hard work admin but I like it the way it was before..my .02 - figzchic  806.6 #227 12:56AM
Much better Muchas gracias - E-Ticket  1466.9 #115 7:14AM
Also, it is important to do a hard refresh by hitting the refresh buttons in the Lounge, or better yet, reboot MouseWait to clear the cache in your phone so you can see all of the new updates. - Admin 7:20AM
Just did that. Working great. Thanks. - DisneyVacationLover  505.0 #422 7:40AM
Noticing significant improvement - SThooray  6.3 #15324 7:39AM
Noticing that there's no lag while typing. Yaaaaaaaay - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 7:55AM
Yes, the lag was horrible before. Seems just fine now. - SergZak  3125.8 #43 8:09AM
I kinda don't like the "show more posts" button. Prefer the pages instead. Still awesome nevertheless. - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 8:13AM
^yes, the show more is going to take some getting use to. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 8:27AM
Working great on the iPad✨ - MinnieBow11  17.3 #7945 8:00AM
I'm still unable to thank you, edit, nor delete the pictures while the options overlapping/touching the pictures.. - Stitch_Legacy  5138.2 #24 8:22AM
Thank you!!!!! - DisneyNorm  1402.4 #127 9:04AM
A big spider just crawled across my phone. I didn't know you meant those kind of bugs... - Slotherini  1079.8 #169 9:08AM
Pic or it didn't happen. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 9:19AM
Did the block feature go away? - RCmom  5235.3 #22 9:10AM
You can still see my post and comments. Huh? - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 9:28AM
Yep. Try again - RCmom  5235.3 #22 9:38AM
no but she can see mine - Dave   13499.2 #2 10:11PM

Yes much faster thanks! - ScarfGirl  644.8 #312 9:33AM

Same here. - happiestplace  275.5 #1105 10:04AM
same here and the Show More Posts is not working. I can see maybe 6 posts, max - misschurro  6362.4 #17 10:04AM
I'm using the website until the bugs are worked out. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 10:08AM
Still for what ever reason I'll type a "comment" and it won't actually post just disappear, that's why I've only been replying (sorry to the MWers I've been attaching my comment to) - PiratePrincess03  103.8 #3536 10:17AM
Thought it was just my Ipad! My show more post is not working as well. - piratelife4me  1047.3 #175 10:18AM
there should be a 'show more posts' button at the bottom when u scroll all the way down.. - Stitch_Legacy  5138.2 #24 10:26AM
I'm talking about navigating forward and backwards for pages Stitch. - vincentchase1  672.9 #300 10:29AM
@Stitch, there IS a ShowMorePosts at bottom but it does nada :/ - misschurro  6362.4 #17 10:30AM

im able to check on the web version throughout the day when I have time , but not at all when mobile :( - CupcakeJedi  391.5 #573 3:07PM
I have that on a htc mytouch with tmobile. I removed mousewait, restarted, reinstalled, cleared cache and most is great now. - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 8:17PM
I'm running gingerbread, no problems. - connielu  686.5 #289 1:01AM
Wife and I are still having issues, I have unisntall, cleared cache, cleared data. I've tried everything, and everytime i go to the lounge the second it completely loads it closes MW - CupcakeJedi  391.5 #573 12:17PM

Do a full reboot of MW and your phone and that should fix it - your phone is caching old info. - Admin  2:34PM
Ok. Thanks! - misschurro  6362.4 #17 2:42PM
Same for Android ): It was working earlier, though. Odd. - Jacqueline  580.0 #349 3:03PM

I'm still having trouble getting to my notifications.. I'm on the droid bionic - MrsDisneyMommy29  280.3 #1054 3:36PM
Loading fast, but I can't comment impress I hit "details", then commenting is easy. Still force closing after being on for short periods (5 to 10 minutes of viewing). - SorcererBHhaha  409.0 #548 4:06PM
Won't let you comment either?! Even in details I can't - PiratePrincess03  103.8 #3536 6:02PM
When I hit the show more posts it shows the last few I've already seen again and then more that I haven't. - PiecesOf8  608.4 #335 6:09PM
Hi Admin. The like and search buttons aren't working. I'm also having an issue with pictures being too wide and too short. The page is too narrow and has extra space on the right which causes scrolling to be rather jerky. I'm on a galaxy S II. - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #371 7:05PM
Now my show more posts button isn't working. It worked when I originally posted this. - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #371 7:22PM
Still having force close issues. The "show more posts" button isn't working for me. It goes through its load sequence then it just stares at me, smirking - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 7:11PM
Mine too, iPhone 4, iOS 6 - Linzee  1188.8 #146 7:16PM
I'm having the same issue but the app forecloses each time I try. - ireland810  191.9 #2090 7:25PM
I still cannot access the lounge from my android. i can get wait times but no lounge. - monkeymoma  270.4 #1160 7:33PM
Android,.gingerbread . I cleared my cache and see a BIG difference ! Thanks Admin! - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 8:09PM
I can't get past page 1. No page numbers at bottom. Thanks Admin - sewgirl  342.6 #697 8:38PM
Admin, I did everything I was supposed to do. I was searching for a pic for 45 min but never found it because as I scrolled and scrolled, I accidentally hit a user name, hit BACK, and it took me to the very beginning :( Yesterday, I could have found the pic in 2 minutes by page #. I never found my pic - misschurro  6362.4 #17 8:40PM
I have the same sob story 😿 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 9:51PM
it certainly is. And that's why CaraMia's Congratulatory post has the pics it has. maybe by 900 it will be easier - misschurro  6362.4 #17 10:12PM
Same issue here. I have jumpy hands and accidentally hit stuff all the time! Glad to hear im not alone in the "lost pic" area - templeclan  54.8 #4584 10:19PM
Omg that happens to me too - Hendizl  2822.0 #46 10:22PM
Everything seems to work great after i reinstalled MW. Thanks admin love the new changes - chipanddalefan  733.4 #264 9:59PM
I reinstalled twice and the "load more posts" button only works for one or two sign ons then ka-put.... Nada:( no more posts:( android issue? Galaxy 2 issue? So sad! - templeclan  54.8 #4584 10:22PM
same here. iPad2 - misschurro  6362.4 #17 10:26PM
Also, near impossible to track the day.... Like Dave said. I usually only MW first thing in the AM and before bed....... I cant see anything that has really gone on. I know i am a newbie but the other way worked better - templeclan  54.8 #4584 10:29PM
Is there a way we who like the previous way with page numbers can opt in for that or is this to help with something technical? - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 11:09PM
******Yes I agree with Dave. I don't know what page I'm on, when I click on the "Show More Post" so I constantly click on the little clock to the far left of this screen to refresh, this way, I at least know that I am on page 1. 😁 - MadameLeota  4203.4 #35 11:28PM
for now you can also open MW in safari and open up the app for wait times or to post. - chris.  2511.4 #57 11:51PM
i still have page numbers on my computer, but not on my phone. weird. - OhanaPhoto  5324.9 #21 1:04PM
Same here - duckchub  557.8 #364 2:37PM
just did another hard reset of my phone, deleted all my phones cookies, cache, and data. I give up, i guess no more MW for me, been almost a month now with no update :( - CupcakeJedi  391.5 #573 5:19PM

But seeing your profile pic makes me smile! - LisaMouse7531  410.1 #544 7:43PM
this is so frustrating 😭I want my old mw back... - missgoofy  371.6 #614 8:03PM
Speed is important. Need to be able to scroll smoothly. Don't need all the extras. Post wait times quickly and scroll efficiently is what it's all about. Don't over complicate. That's my 2 cents. Still love the app! - goofygal  11004.0 #7 8:31PM
