Must be the CI bug again.
Time to get some Raid bug spray (Lol)

I hope the chatbox will be working again sometime. But fortionately (<- bad spelling) I'm a more patient type.

It's so strange how much fun the General Discussion Board can be when the Chat Box is down... :p

This isn't official or anything, but we've been using my chatbox as a backup until the Chao Island chatbox returns. You can find it at:

http://www.ustream.tv/channel/blade-genexis-live

You might need an account to chat. It won't let me open it to guests. It's worth the fun, though! ;)

Un-surprisingly, the host disable the chat because it was:
causing the server to malfunction, and it's load to skyrocket.
Unfortunately, we cannot allow one user to negatively effect the service
that we offer to others.

Please do not re-enable this software until you're positive that it
won't cause any more problems.


Which means that there IS a big problem with the chat. The root of our lag problems? possibly.

I will have to look into another chat solution. The chat/forum games section is there if you need to let out any sort of chat style posts/threads for now.
And also, please post about if you come across any more lag issues from now on (in this thread would be best) since we have changed server and had chat disabled.

Sorry!

Yeah, I noticed how much faster the board is now that chatbox is gone. Hmm...

I'm all for crazo's idea of an IRC chat, personally.

Overall, the pages do load faster, but it still seems to take longer than usual. I remember the old board would load in about two seconds on a 56k connection. Even less on DSL. Last night, Fusion said the pages were loading very slowly. Maybe the chatbox was only part of the problem?

:thinking:

I had some ideas, but the are probably not true!

All the members!
You know how we had that discussion on how so many accounts have been unused? Them just sitting there doing nothing probably takes up room of something and slows it down!

Too many users on Phpb (or what ever it is), Same concept!

All the Topics!
The ones that get locked and slowly sink down to the very bottom of the list!

The topics that are locked eventually get deleted. And when you load a page it doesn't load any accounts or anything.

Yea, but it has to load all the names in your data base so when you want to look at it, its ready or something.

Personally, I think we should get an off-site chat, and skin it over to look like the old one. Then, make the link at the bottom go there.
