why dont we just ban the thousands of members who only posted once or not at all then???
That's exactly what I'm thinking. I'm searching for members with 0 posts that have registered anytime past a week ago....the chances are they aren't coming back and they are using up database space so I'm cleanin' shop! :D

and if we got a new server wouldnt everyone lose their accounts and our beutiful post counts

Nope, if the MySQL database is on cobras computer right now, and everything is in it, then all he does is make the new server connect to the current database.

click on members and then click on top ten and just start from the last page, should work like a charm if thats what your doing

Yup, for Supermods its about 3 or 4 clicks and your banned. Admins can do it even faster...about 2 clicks:D

Banning is pointless---the members will still be there. What you need to do is take advantage of vB and delete all members in whatever post range you want (i.e. everyone with less than 5 posts gets deleted).

i say we need a new server, if other forums can have more then 30thousand people and have no problem, and this forum get screwed up at like 5000, we need a new server or someway to make it possible to get more members and not have problems.

Okay.

1. No deleting / banning old members will not solve the problem. They don't weight the server down any since they are nothing more than stored data that never gets used.

2. We are moving servers! Should be done by hopefully January 5 or so.

3. The downtime is because our server is currently over used. We aren't the reason though... the other accounts in the server are all experiencing high loads and the mysql database is under such heavy usage that that server is crashing from time to time! Frustrating. =0

4. The new server should fix this problem.

So hang in there. The next few days will be turbulent, but hopefully by the end of the 1st week of January, everything will be back to life as usual. :D
