    This is only a suggestion,

    1. Why doesnt the person who runs this forums....have a limit on it..say 350 people at any one time?

    2. Is it due to the bandwidth that the whole website slows down...or is it due to the servers capability? Can either of them be increased? I think this is a growing forums...clearly with lots of new members joining, so the problem is only going to get worse.....

    Can anything be done other than telling people to stop hitting refresh ?!

    Because the 351st person and above would get those busy messages and would have to keep refeshing anyway...

    I think its the server... can't process stuff as there are too many active users and new posts and stuff that the server has to store

    I'm sorry if that kind of came out bad... I don't constantly refresh... just every 30 secs or so if the page doesn't load
