Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

Personally i think you need a 'live chat' facility (similar to the one we had) instead of these 'chat' threads, does anyone 'catch up' missed chat during the day? Well, I can't keep up myself, and no ones going to start reading one from the start (too much drivel :P)

That should save some space

But the BORED thread must remain

I saw a screen shot of the live chat that is/was used here... it's the same one I used to use and it caused me no end of grief.

I note that number of users has dropped down now below 400 and the site is fine and dandy...

Maybe it's Spiders that are doing it then

Yes, i am getting my coat.....

Re: What happened there? (Downtime)

TCT is shut!

Has it anything to do with merging of threads and maybe polls?

Archiving data I see! :elaugh:



It could be due to size but also I think indexes/unique/primary keys etc, and the merging of threads/polls might have not helped it's (forum?) stability. BUT that's mere guess work and I only mention it if it might point to an underlying problem. Most likely not!
