Many of you have commented that the server has been unresponsive and slow in the last few days, something I've noticed too. I tracked down the source of the problem today, and it turned out we were way over our allowed CPU usage on the server, caused by all the SQL queries from normal forum use. We were around 39% over, something I really didn't expect to happen so quickly. However, that's a good thing, as it' means the site is growing :D

I went ahead and doubled our hosting plan, and as I'm sure you can tell the forum is quick and responsive once again. I know it's not going to last as the site grows, but for the time being we should be good to go. My guess is they're going to have to move us to a dedicated server once we break 250-300 users.

Enjoy! :s0155:

Lucky you are rich and can afford stuff like that ;)

I have 4 websites but none as cool as this..

you need to start selling shirts or something to keep up with your loses!
 
Haha I wish I was rich, I barely make ends meet. This is something I feel is worth it though, and I have hopes of one day making this site pay for itself.

I've been brainstorming different methods for generating some revenue. T-Shirts and other swag are one method I've been thinking about. I also have a few people interested in advertising already, so I'll probably throw up a few ads once we get things rolling. Any other ideas are much appreciated :D

Looks like I spoke too soon, as we're still having issues. This will be resolved as soon as possible.
