Downtime/Site Speed

I imagine many of you have been noticing downtime, pages not loading, database errors, etc. I would like to apologize first and let you know that we have been working to get the problem solved.


Our host had two power outages in the past week and since then we have been seeing a steadily increasing amount of trouble with two of our servers. So while we and our host try to troubleshoot the problematic servers we have activated two servers in Rochester, NY to help keep the site alive.


You can probably expect the pages to take longer to load as the information has to go from New York to Texas and then back to New York before it's sent to your browser.

Please bear with us as we cope with the problem.

like (god rest their souls) the people who sign up and post twice - both on the same thread... about how something is wrong with their gun. Yarrg. I say any account that hasn't been used for 6-8 months should just be deleted.

Guys, we've been over this before. Deleting old posts/users doesn't free up resources or bandwidth. It's not what is causing the problem (faulty hardware, and not enough of it is).

i cant belive there are people posting in this thread about how you should fix the problem when they haven't donated (even a measly 5 bucks) to pbnation. its rediculous guys. hardware costs money, webspace costs money, repairs cost money. help out or dont complain.

I don't have a firm ETA on when the problems will all be remedied, but there are some major changes in the pipeline that should help site performance a LOT.

If your current adverstising money isn't enough...

You should also ad Goggle Adsense below the left menu bar.

With the kind of traffic this website makes, you could probably get an extra few thousand dollars a month to go to adding servers.

What are the hardware specs currently?
