    It seems like every time I try to view or post a message I get a 'server is busy' error. It's almost impossible to use the site at certain times of the day.

    Just a frustrated observation...

    it because its results day.

    also because people just sit there hitting refresh, which makes it worse.

    if you get that after posting, leave it for a while and then hit refresh and then resend info.

    towards the end of the month there should be improvements.

    I always copy everything before I post now - no matter the time of day. Before I did this I was ever MORE frustrated when I got the busy message!

    This, for example, I have copied and ^^ now it's a paste. Grrr!

    Does that mean the server will get more bandwidth?

    Lol you know its refreshing that actually causes the server problems in the first place? Constantly refreshing is what is known as a denial of server attack and doing it on purpose is actually ilegal.

    I think the wink indicated that the statement was tongue-in-cheek.


    LOL <imagines being arrested for refreshing too frequently>
