    as much as i hate to agree even in the slightest with Gladius i too noticed how much worse it got after the switch to vB4.


    i do not mean the server is slower just that the slow downs are more frequent and last longer.


    why not upgrade the servers if they are all that old ?

      I am pretty sure I read that they are evaluating the issue right now and trying to decide what they want to do regarding the servers.

        They should upgrade to a network of linked PS3's networked together running a linux build. :P (I just wanna see if it would work....)

          For some reason, I have the feeling that is NOT one of the options on the table.

                  Guess I was always lucky. Didn't have any problems until the switch to 4.0.

                    I guess we should be ready to throw more hardware at big boards once we feel that 4 is worth switching to. :/

                      Heh, think about real big boards... not the size of vB.com/org, but those with 10m+ posts...

                        i never saw a board THAT big.

                        i wouldn't want to know what the DB size on that is like.


                        stats from one of the bigest boards i belong to and they just did a mass prune of members and some older posts.
