  • [Forum] Slow Slow... Forum

    Hi Guys,

    I recently created a forum with VB 4.0.3 a month ago and I did not have any problems at all till recently where as the forum is running awful slow.

    I also had a number of bots/spammers (2-3 average per day) trying to register and post, but they are in the moderation queue.

    My forum only has 40 members on it and only averages no more than 10 people at once because it's brand new.

    Is there any possible reasons why the forum is so slow?

        Guys, I have no idea what the hell is going on -- is it possible that the forum has been hacked into?
