Free messageboards as a backup. Warpaint illus. sucks and doesn't work.

Would reduce load on server. Anyone want to create one? I would use it.


Google servers aren't going to go down.

Here's a simple suggestion for the Mods: on high-volume days, disable avatars and signatures.

Thats an idea.

I like the backup board too. Everyone here should have an auto account.

This has been discussed more times than you can imagine. It has nothing to do with avatars and sigs - it's a database issue. There are two backup boards available and a chat room, but they don't get much use.

It's been discussed- but has it been tried out? Since the slowdowns indicate the Mods do not know (yet) how to fix the problem, why not experiment?

Yes, it has been tried. No, it doesn't help. This has been a problem for years. The issue is a combination of server hardware, database design, and old software. Any fixes would have to come with the guy who owns it all, and he's not around much.

So how do we make him do something about it?

If there are 2 backup boards and a chartroom links to them should be thrown on the 'Server busy' message to help more immediately lighten the load.

We should probably utilize server and bandwidth resources to repeatedly talk about the lack of server and bandwidth resources. That seems to be a really productive exercise.

I'm not sure if it's possible to add that to the error page. That's more morph's area.

Good idea. I'm for it.

I think maybe if we bury our collective head it will just fix itself eventually.

Getting rid of dial up might help, as well.

Or God forbid, fix the MF once and for all. :banghead:

We should probably find that Phil guy and put him back in charge. This place went to shit when Phil left.

I'm guessing that idiot would probably say no. He's pretty high priced.

How much does 500 pesos cost these days?

My guess would be $501 would make it happen. :evil:

Haven't we limited access to members only before?

I wonder if we could limit it to members with over 500 posts on days like this :shrug:

We're locked down to only members with over 30 days or 50 posts right now.
