Looks like we've finally reached a point where the site is stable, due to code changes and some other behind the scenes changes, I've gotten us to a point where nothing more can be done with a single server setup. Yes, I realize I've been talking about it for months, but we are going to move to a better host with multiple servers to handle the extra load we get sometimes. On top of that I've removed offensive Tapatalk coding that was causing multiple errors. To those who think I don't know what I'm doing, please feel free to enlighten everyone with your extensive knowledge, clearly showing those who believe you, that I don't know what I'm doing. Until that happens, (which likely never will - as it hasn't happened yet) you will likely just have to deal with it. If I didn't know what I was doing, I wouldn't be here in the first place. Now quit bashing me and making up lies about what I've done or haven't done.... Because I'm sure you are the pot calling the kettle black here ... but I'm sure you feel safe posting anonymously. Lastly - to all those loyal visitors - thank you. We appreciate the fact that you stick by us, waiting patiently for a resolution. And to all those who hate - enjoy your karma.

Yes, We know, we apologize, over and over again.... However, until we are able to switch hosting providers and setup multiple servers, we will have these problems. Sorry, remember though, we are a free site, so at least you aren't paying for downtime. Please have patience, we are working to resolve this major issue... EXAMPLE ERRORS: Service Unavailable The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later. or error 524 from Cloudflare...

Noted slowness today, while there are many options to resolve this issue, the decision still hasn't been made on which solution will best fit the problem. Understandably we will be working towards a faster resolution to future issues, once we've come up with the best solution to this overloading problem. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please direct all complaints directly to firstname.lastname@example.org, Thanks!

Looks like more growing pains, as the site was inaccessible to some people today due to overload, we believe. We are investigating further and since we are due for an update later tonight, the site may be offline longer than expected. As soon as the site comes back up, we will notify everyone here. Until then, stay patient, we will be back! **Due to rude comments and general complaints about the downtime, I'm not performing the upgrade and going to just bring the site back online** Your attacks of me have to stop, I will not be attacked for doing my job and having things that are untrue said. This is ridiculous, all I have ever done is my job as technical admin, as appointed by lulu. You all have taken me as target practice for your hatred. I'm sorry, but I'm done being your punching bag.

Indexing the site is done, search function and view your posts feature is back online. We are now efficiently serving over 900 users between GG and YTMD without slowness. My hope is the performance changes we've now done, will make the site load much faster and less glitchy as ever before. As we all know there are times when we've had issues for days, not to mention the last week where everyday was a battle just to view 1 post. I understand and we are trying to minimize downtime and slowness. Hopefully the bulk of the growing pains is over, and we can now enjoy some Gossip. Everyone have a great week and remember to keep on Gossiping!

We are converting our database to a better structure to help during busy times, (ie: when we have over 700 users on), which is taking a bit longer than expected. As soon as the site comes back up, we will notify via this blog and facebook! FYI. Thanks for your continued support and patience. In the meantime, I've forwarded the site HERE, so you'll know when we are back up!

We have integrated a new memcache system with the forum in hopes to speed up slow loading times during heavy usage. When we get overloaded by thousands of users we typically used to experience lock ups and/or slow loading pages. Now with the new integration, we should (in theory) no longer have these types of issues. We shall see! Thanks for your patience.

Welcome to 2015 and the new Guru Gossiper will be online soon, we are performing maintenance tonight from 10PM - 2AM (Pacific Standard Timezone) ... board may go offline during those times. Please bear with us during these times. Thank you for your continued support, especially in light of all the drama chaos caused by malicious moderators and members of the forum. We have tried to deal with everything the best we can, and apologize for the issues. Hopefully you all can understand.
