    We're back!

    Our host Powweb.com had disabled our account because we had too many visitors, which caused "high cpu and server load". We've then decided to take measures to prevent this from happening again. No big deal, really, but you still ought to know [​IMG]
    - "Birthdays list" won't show up on the board index view when no birthdays to show.
    - Cut off for active user display is now 10 minutes, instead of 20.
    - 'Users Browsing this forum' feature removed ('Users Browsing this topic' still on, though)
    - Minimum search word length: 4 letters instead of 2.
    - User caching of pages is now enabled.
    - Search post now cut to 250 characters.
    - Number of Articles to display in the main section: 5 instead of 6.
    - Ads removed, yay!
    - Max. number of personal messages to show per page when viewing inbox: 20 instead of 50 (I doubt you'd have 50 new messages anyway!)
    - Reported Post Notifications are now sent via e-mail.
    - Flood control enabled: you'll have to wait 15 seconds between each message you post.
    - Default number of topics per forum page: 25 instead of 30.
    - Default number of posts per topic page: 15 instead of 20.
    - Max. size of post: 80 kilobytes instead of 100.

    As you can see, there's no major change.
    If the situation remains problematic, we'll have to move the GBA release list to another server.

    The staff.

    Got no problem with the changes, but I was under the impression that quite a few of those changes had been implemented awhile ago like the Flood Control and the 4 letter minimum for the search feature, not that anyone here actually uses the search feature. [​IMG]

    Humm, just a suggestion, if it happened you've got a decent connection (OC3) and up you could guys think about hosting the board on a server of your own, a bit challenging but still worth it.What do you think? [​IMG]
    EditAnyways nice to see that evrything is back to normal for the time being

    Really glad to see this place up again, you tend to forget how much time we all spend here until it's down.

    It wasnt enabled before this issue, was it? I remember complaining about it awhile back, but the problem just went away.
    Maybe it was a personal problem [​IMG]
