    If they did i didn't notice it [​IMG]

    There's an automatic cut off anyway, when a topic is really old and hasn't been bumped it gets deleted.

    No they didn't, all the old threads that date from last October are still there. The boards simply show the latest threads from the last 30 days and all the others are hidden but they're still here.

    is that why it's getting slow? i think i've noticed this, assumed we were just getting bigger... more people, more traffic, less spare bandwidth etc...

    I haven't noticed any change in the speed of the forums at all. Perhaps you have too many programmes in use when you go online.

    The amount of space occupied by the forums has nothing to do with speed (unless the server has a crappy HD)
    Your connection might be getting slower because of some other app that also uses the net or as mxmai said it could be from more ppl browsing the site

    STOP SPAMING. Its all you do. Every one of your god damn posts is spam. You don't even read the topic before posting!

    He posts one line shit. I don't do that. Look at my posts. They arn't spam. So fuck off killaroms. Also, read the replys to his posts. Everyone is telling him that he is spaming, not just me.

    im not dumb.. when i go online im on DSL and i only have 2 iexplorers open and yea the posts r slowing down the sites cause the amount of space the site is given is almost full (i think) and the posts and dumb members with 0 posts r taking up so much space.. but i guess they wanna keep all the posts to make the site look 'BIG'

    Hmm, the amount of posts, and the amount of space given for hosting (if it went over, it would be worse then a slow down, ill tell ya that) shouldnt be slowing it down one bit (i havent noticed anything), its probobly a server problem they are having or something, maybe with the huge load that GBAtemp gives out, you know, 'they'.

    Hmm maybe its about time that m4d got a new server eh?

    Okay now kupo, you swear way too much, please show some sort of civilization, your acting barbaric, hmm ill see what can be done about bmw ryder's obsessive spam...
