    Anyone know how to get back latest posts, and users online are gone as well? I changed nothing and that is how it is now.

    its either a forum bug (which i do not think) or the admins removed it on purpose.

    The admins remove search-based functions like latest posts on purpose when the site gets really busy to reduce server load. The SQL errors also occur when the site gets busy. Blame Mario Galaxy. They'll put it back when things calm down.

    your question's pretty much answered in Psyfira's earlier post.

    For the umpteenth time, when a high profile game gets dumped our server just gets raped from all the people signing up and viewing the forum. I mean, it's only been a day and there are already 149,337 views of the topic and 1,249 replies. We have to turn off features so we can actually get the forum to load.

    Anyone else scared of how bad it'll get when brawl gets dumped (early)?
    We'll get like 20000000 new users :S It'll freeze the whole site.

    If Brawl gets dumped early we're just gonna have to ignore it's existence and ban anyone who claims it exists for the sake of the site.

    ...

    That's just stupid...just disable commenting on new releases for a bit for members with less than 50 posts and registering a new account until it dies down.

    [​IMG] , lol. However, even without the commenting, the site will be overloaded because of the traffic. However, the second part of the at idea is good. It will help if people with less post counts will only be able to access certain features, so that there is less traffic.

    shh...
    but I was making a serious suggestion. Shadowboy's right, if brawl is dumped early GBAtemp will explode and something even more drastic should be done...

    See that hole in your wall?
    Costello, how long is search gonna be disabled?
    Samutz: until SMG hype dies

    [10:05pm] argh stupid borked gbatemp :(
    [10:06pm] it's not broken...just mutilated :(
    [10:06pm] "688 user(s) active in the past 23 minutes" the traffic is normal already
    [10:07pm] with view new posts not working, i spend probably 90% less time on it
    [10:07pm] i load the home page, see the new releases, then after that im too lazy to go through each and every forum to look for an interesting topic
    [10:08pm] view new posts had it all in a nice list
    [10:08pm] yup, I tried that, is boring
    [10:08pm] and yes, View New Posts is really useful
    [10:08pm] damn spammers >_<

    when View New Posts is borked, GBAtemp is borked :(

    It's seriously irritating. Imagine trying to use email, but instead of new mail being listed in an inbox, it's split up into 50 folders. :(
