They should do something about it, otherwise they will start loosing people to other deal sites.
Seems every other day the website goes down.

would be nice if they could feedback to us what's causing the problems and what's being done to resolve them?

It's the same as ever. More people needs more hardware. We keep adding hardware, more people keep using it, we need more hardware etc.

We used to crash with 100 people on, then 1000 people, then 2000, then 3000... you get the picture :)

But we haven't hit the 8444 mark for a couple of months now, if I remember correctly the site was running beautifully when that many people were on. I was able to post several times in the congratulations thread as the number gradually went up to 8444.

Such a great site Paul, would be a shame to lose some members over this sort of thing. Is there anything we can do in the meantime? ie I'd rather have a site that works but doens't have avatars if that's causing a lot of bandwidth problems.

All the best mate.

Have to agree with Benji there Admin.
For the first time I actually had to give up trying to get on here this morning. Strangely though Quidco was the same ??

Anyway whatever is causing the problem surely something can be done with the existing setup.
I don't have a clue technically but is it as simple as Benji implies ?? Could the members be helping by their actions because I'm sure most would try and help .

I always wonder about photos and did ask once but was told they were fine because they were hosted elsewhere ???

regards.

We've added a few features since though. A lot of performance is based on caching and the more dynamic we make a page (for example the show/hide tools) the less general the caching becomes. The other thing is that we do get people scraping the site to automatically put content on their sites which can screw things up.

Things are in hand don't worry - it just takes time to work kinks out.

Good to hear mate.

Tony - Photos as in the photo thread are fine, they are all hosted by imageshack etc so they are providing the bandwidth. The avatars are stored by hukd ao it's taking some bandwidth. I'm not sure how much a difference it would make but if it would be a temp solution I'd be up for it. Probably as I don't have one tho!!
