Gonna be severly reducing the size of the archives
 
Have the sense that this will reduce the load and decrease the "server too busy" problems.


Also it will reduce the recent epidemic of geigh-backing.

I can see where this might limit the amount of time the "guests" are traversing the content, but I'm not sure that it lightens the server load (or overcomes the concurrent users limit, if there is one) in the long run.

Thanks for trying to address it, though. I've had quite a few conversations with frustrated boredmates about the technical problems. I know that the software has been good for us for a long, long time...but for my unsolicited two cents, I'm starting to think that it's getting time to either relocate the software to another host or to use another forum package.

I sure you got this Susq, but I'm willing to help too if need be, either researching forum packages, etc.... can even migrate old content over to new home if desired

I'm kind of reluctant to change the hosting company... they have literally served us well over the years.

I do think a software upgrade is overdue especially due to security concerns

I've kept this s/w static because a number of people liked the fully threaded view (which I implemented as a mod to the stock code). But most of those people aren't participating in the board these days. I know in general people don't like user interface changes but progress is progress.

I'd also like to offer the real keys to the board to a few more people so it's assured it will continue if I die in a plane crash or something like that. Maybe we should establish a bored bored of directors.

Perhaps that may be too boring.

I don't know cuntboys about software, so let me know where to donate funds.

IGGLEPHANS 12-04-2018 10:50 AM

May have identified the problem. It's related to a setting in the board software.


Please let me know if things are better. I think we should still consider upgrading the board software.

CbEagle 12-04-2018 11:05 AM

don't know when you did the tweek but I have been getting on constantly all morning and there seems to be a good amount of traffic

Susquehanna Birder 12-04-2018 02:09 PM

Ding! I think you might have hit on something. I did some digging, and there were two potential areas there the software might have been snagging. Hopefully you got 'er done.

Thanks!

(And I kind of like the bored board idea.)

I'm not terribly experienced, but I've noodled with enough of this technology to be dangerous. And I'm sure that we have quite a few talented techies - like yourself - on this bored who can lend a hand if management needs assistance.

Geighbacking had it's day in the post Super Bowl glow. It's generally run it's course except for the occasional Dullas troll geighback.

Believe we may have solved the problem for now so no need to reduce the archive size right now. Geighback away!


Would like to start a discussion about new board software for the future.
