We know that the site is slow. It is slower than we want too. Many factors contribute to this (most outside our control), Even so, we have a plan to address the problem. It will be implemented as soon as possible. In the meantime, thanks for your patience and understanding.
When will relief be in sight? This is a great resource and i feel empty not being able to access it 85% of the time Help I’m going through withdrawel!! If money is an issue, i’m pretty sure the CD community could come up with it for you.
We’re hoping to get a little boost in performance in the next 2-3 days. The techs at our hosting company only work week days, so we have to wait till then for them to even process our order.
As far as money … if you feel the need to contribute you can click the ‘Donate’ button in the middle of the two ads up above. Every little bit will help, and 100% of your donation will go towards the website costs (current and future enhancements to boost the speed). If you want to donate more than $5, send any money to [email protected] via paypal.
Thanks for bearing with the seasonal slowdown … we’re working on it, as fast as humanly possible.
At the bottom of the webpage is a link to “Archive” http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/archive/index.php, and that is essentially what you are talking about. Just a bare display of all the messages in linear order, no signature, no avatars, no images at all.
That archive page shows all the current discussions and messages, with the most recent ones at the bottom instead of the top.
The only down side is, there are no reply button in there. The up side is, those of us who just want to read the forum can go in there and ready it easily.
maybe the people who donate more then 5 get a preferred slot once they log in. that would encourage me to donate, especially during the season. all you would have to do is have a bare bones login page so you could when the server is full
Someone had an idea to put a banner link for paypal right on the error page as well as the main.
YOu can’t see the main page if you can’t get on cause of the error screen.
I know it’s not a immediate solution, but it’ll help defer costs in the upcoming year if it’s right there when you try and come on.
We have just placed an order for a server upgrade that should double (at least) our capacity. This will cause a little future downtime (you’ll be warned of the specific time) but will give us plenty of upgrade options in the future, and get us 2x the capacity right from the get-go.
Thanks for your patience while we get things rolling.
