Re: Service Unavailable

I don't want to add friction to potential forum users. The bots are not affecting speed due to the sites new horsepower.

Re: Forum software change - yay or nay?

A vBulletin upgrade is off the cards. It is widely accepted that they went astray, ruining what was otherwise the market leader. Xenforo has twice the market share of vBulletin now, and for good...

Re: Service Unavailable

2300 guests, supposedly (more like bots from China IMHO), and the forum is the same speed. We have so much grunt under the hood now that I'm hoping site speed will never slow down again.

Re: Forum software change - yay or nay?

Thanks for your feedback Doc. I am trying to get a feel for what people want. I have my own inclinations too. It all goes into the mix.

Minty, I see that they have only recently switched over to...

Re: Forum software change - yay or nay?

If you are a paid supporter here, you get less ads. But I think that is quite a common thing on other forums too.

Oh that is an interesting ploy! Did you register so you could get a feel for that type of software?

Re: Forum software change - yay or nay?

Yes, all the post counts will remain the same, and attached to the user. All the usernames go across. I think it is supposed to also transfer reputation. I did see something about transferring the...

Re: Forum software change - yay or nay?

@Minty, OMG I don't think I've ever seen so many ads on a page! And those big ads you mention in the middle. I wonder if that is Google's new Adsense ad AI. Apparently, it puts the ads in random...

Re: Forum software change - yay or nay?

Tapatalk never paid me a dime. I did do some setting years ago that said ads would show and the revenue would come my way, but it never did.

The traffic from this forum is nearly all desktop. But...

Forum software change - yay or nay?

With this forum being 20-odd years old, and the software it runs on being "old-school" and non-mobile responsive, I have entertained the idea of upgrading the software, going from its current...

This annoys me...

There is something on this site that has always bugged me. It is when the page renders, the main section expands to the full screen width. Then, at the last second, the right column appears and...

Re: Service Unavailable

We supposedly have nearly 1000 guests on the forum right now, which I recon must be bots, because Sunday's are normally quiet. But in any case, whatever they are, the forums are barely breaking a...

Re: Service Unavailable

I've been updating some plugins, and other changes. So, expect the board to be on and off for a while. I will keep it on as long as I can.

Re: Service Unavailable

I've identified the mysql database problem to be something about a sessions table. I just deleted the contents of it and the last couple of days posts have gone. It will take me some time to try to...

Expect more downtime over the next 3 days, but it will be for the long term good of the forums.

Re: Service Unavailable

I am aware of the issues, but I cannot take any action yet for reasons I do not want to make public. Eventually, I hope to get everything sorted.

Re: Service Unavailable

Took a backup of the forums last night. This caused some issues with the mysql backend. Just got that fixed. All 8 of my sites are now backed up to my PC, as well as the weekly backups that my host...

I'm doing backups and all sorts of things in the background. Performance will be poor.

Re: Service Unavailable

I noticed things slow this morning too with a very large number of guests, which is highly unusual. Same issue last night, with about 3000 guests. We normally max out at about 600. Perhaps someone is...

Been on and off with support all day. Finally managed to get someone to do something. They said I needed to upgrade cpu and ram, but that is nonsense. The site normally runs fine. Anyway, they...

Just did live chat again with host, and they said create ticket. They still haven't responded to my ticket of yesterday.

Re: Service Unavailable

The problem I have at the moment is I cannot even start doing anything. I still don't have access to my WHM/Cpanel backend since the hosts server has issues. And when I ask my host for help, they...
