    I'm pretty sure the admins know this is all messed up... it's a new server, they are still fixing stuff...

    Yes, the forum is slow... everyone knows this too...

    Thanks just wait for the admins to fix it...

    Thank you for your time...

    Wow, they went the extreme to keep it up to speed. You have to sign-in to view the forum now. Or I had to...

    But I have to admit, it's running like it used to. [​IMG]

    Actually that stuffs disabled cause it puts extra strain on the servers which i think is not exactly welcomed at a time like this.

    That's right. These aren't bugs. They're precautionary measures to help the server during busy periods.

    I'll re-activate them once the rush dies down.

    I hope so ....... the major one that's bugging me is the VIEW NEW POSTS its a PITA having to goto the forum index and do it all manually ...

    Its got to the point where I cannot be bothered to even try checking [​IMG]

    Is the traffic that bad/busy we have to cripple the forum to an almost unusable state!?

    Surely wouldn't something like turning signatures and avatars and killing Youtube/other streaming videos links speed it up more!?

    Yes, if it wasn't for all this precautions the forum would probably have even more time outs!
