    Why is the database getting errors and overloading? If over 100 members have been online at one time then the database shouldnt really overload like that...

    It's a different error code, but the same problem: full disk. It doesn't have to do with the server being unable to handle the traffic, it has to do with storage space.

    Yeh we know it's disk space. We just can't do anything about it yet.

    I think we should switch board type, and delete all user information.

    Users with 500 or more posts should manually be added to the new board. Any other users would be completly removed. This would save us from lots of diskspace.

    The grogtopic should, however, be transfered too, as it's the most important topic in the history of GBATemp.



    And kill the attachment function.

    > . < i REALLY hope that's a joke, Lord Graga... i mean, delete ALL user accounts below 500 posts? Yeah, that's fair, isn't it? lol im pretty sure you're joking though. What about deleting the accounts with no posts that are oer a year old, those would probably have been made just to get ROMS.

    I say they upgrade the forum, delete all 0 post users, get skins, and get a bigger hard drive. [​IMG]

    They should first get a bigger harddrive for the server. Then they should buy vbulletin

    in one poitn i agree... delete the 0-posters. the only problem is DB consistency doing this. such a modification could usually only be done clean and stable during a little shutdown of the forum. otherwise it could get a bit tricky.

    Why not just create a gbatemp temp forum? (get the joke? [​IMG]) We could use that instead of this until everything is sorted. . . right?

    Oh I found out how to browse the forum without getting any errors.

    As tempest said there are some parts of the forums which can't be veiwed. This is the index mainly. So the only topics we can reply to are those in the 10 latest topics. Once that topic has disappeared from the top ten there's no other way to retrieve that topic. Now to post a new topic you have to so to a topic which is in the same forum group and click on new topic/poll. You'll then be able to create a topic. (So if you want to make a topic with a suggestion you'd need to enter a topic which is also in the same forum as your topic is going to be in) The bad thing is once any topic from a certain forum group (such as general topic in this case) has disappeared from the top ten, there is no other way to post in that forum anymore. The only thing I could suggest to stop that from happening is by a moderater moving a topic from another forum into the general discussions forum so that we can then post there. PHEW!

    and if they did the topic would just get deleted again and if they continued then a ban would have to come into affect for spamming!!

    If you got rid of either Grog or Teh Person Above Meh the ensuing riots among members would be enough to ban YOU, DjGarf. Moderators DO have a responsibility to keep the forum as enjoyable as possible for the members.

    We need an administrator. It's just that simple.
