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.
