View Full Version : This forum's server SUCKS.

I think the header speaks for itself... but anyone with any idea why? Is it just coincidence that it's happeneing after the "Hack" was introduced?

The forums have been the way they are now for a LONG time. Even after the battle hack was introduced, I daren't say the forums have gotten significantly slower, because they haven't. Maybe just a teeny little.

But if the extra possible page hits with all the battles, what with all the refreshing and stuff, get a little more money for our illustrious hosts so they can keep geebee and co. running, I'm okay with that.

Yah, I definatley agree. I always get this sever busy crap, I never used to get it though.

It ALSO can be caused by an influx of members, which happened when JO first came out.

But I'd like for YOU to find a better server, punk (Isn't in a good mood today)

Actually, it's not THAT bad. Sometimes it just doesn't load the page, and I just try later.

I can't say I really like that Battle-RPG stuff (I prefered the points system... I needed to change my stupid ID...), but I don't think it dramatically slows the forums down.

Some days the forum seems like it's down ALL DAY!

Would you like some cheese with that whine? :p

Seriously guys, get over it. No amount of protesting will change the way things are... we gotta live with it, or just go away. Yeah, I wish we had a perfect server, or at least a better one, but hey; I'll live with it.

Better servers cost money. And right now, this place may be down a lot, but keeping a set of vB forums running as big as these is quite a challenge...

Remember, this is a damn good place for free :D

Oh well it can't be that bad. I have a 56K so it's bad all the time.

By the way for all 56kers avoid the Jedi Academy forum. too crowded.

I think it's all the JA people and maybe all the virii going around recently. According to matt, the Battle Hack has nothing to do with the downtime

Don't worry when JA will be released everything will be back to normal. I mean there's always someone down at JA and today I saw at least 15 persons at once if not more. That causes some trouble.

When JA will be released, everything will go to hell. We're gonna be bombarded by newbies looking for help in the game and whatnot. It's gonna take a few months for the place to die down.

oh wait... is that jedi academy?

Quite likely.
