I believe they turned them off due to so much traffic here today, trying to eliminat unneeded stuff to speed things up.

is it because of all the traffic of ppl searching for that thread were all searching for DREW BREES FINS NEWEST QB! or somehting similar. i remember the mods saying about how records were broken as to how many ppl on at a time during the junior seau signing etc, im wondering what the numbers are looking like now.

BREES IF YOU KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR YOU YOU GET YOUR MONEY AND SLEEP EASY AT NIGHT WITHA WINNING TEAM, DONT LET GREED MAKE UR DECISION.

Searching is disabled to help with the traffic the site is getting. Searches slow the site down.

I think it's mostly the guests. The admins should look into what they can do to restrict access to guests when there is high traffic.

Does turning off sigs make the site any faster or help with traffic? If so it'd be good to turn those off as well.

Anything that can help with me getting the info I need would be awesome.

Also there is broken records today, I think 1426 people were online earlier today which broke the record by about 200 people. Also pretty close to the amount of members who have logged on in a day which is around 2000 and there is still 6 hours to go before the end of the day and it's at around 1900 so we should get there.

Takes the pages ages to load so I'm going to make the most of being able to even get into this post and keep writing :)

this board lags, someone write a letter to the dolphins website to open up a nice message board with no lag


Yeah, how dare this thing run so slow with over 1000 people browsing it. Try miamidolpins.com or some other bush league board if you want. This is the ONLY board as far as I'm concerned.

How's about not posting useless threads... that would help.

1/3 of the threads are useless at this point in time, if people would just post things pertaining to OUR FA and other things that actually have to do with Dolphins it might be going a bit faster.

Sigs shouldn't help, but avatars would. I see they axed those.

Are you kidding? KUDOS to FH for keeping this site going with everyone on it. You've got lots of people posting and refreshing all of the time. FH has limited resources and you are complaining about how slow it is? Give them a break.

We just have way too many guest on this site that are viewing. I think it would be best if we only let the members view the boards and not let the guest view them because this site is still way too slow. Atleast until Brees signs or Culpepper is traded.

Me too. There still are alot of people viewing this site, but I think the admins did something to make it go at a pretty good speed.

I use that a fair amount & now when I go to search to see if something has been posted I can't.

Jimmy James

People (mostly guests) mounted a massive attack on the servers today looking for Brees news because of the expectations generated by anxious fans and irresponsible press. Searches have been temporarily disabled, and avatars are also gone.

If you really need to search, go to Google, choose advanced, and put www.finheaven.com in the domain field before doing your search.

on the same subject....how about the "new Posts" feature. We no longer have a main board. I would rather lose avatars and sigs than lose this feature, it is my favorite(now that I discovered my Google tool bar has spell check). Please-please, give us back this feature... I am surprised that you disabled it, this just goes to show how little I understand the stuff. I would have thought that there would be little gain by shutting this one down. Thanks.

Thanks.

Glad brother cnc posted this.... I DEPEND on the "New Posts". I didnt even know there were any other options to view posts:D
It was obvious what was happening yesterday guys. One time i saw over 1200 viewers just in the zoo. You guys in the trenches keepin it going are amazing.. keep up guys.

so true, I feel like I am somewhere else because I am unfamiliar with navigating like this. I never used any other way to view. I'll tell you, it causes me to move around within the site MUCH more...this has to add against any gain you received by shutting it down.

:lol: Dom, I think 6 mins might be a bit of an exaggeration. It is slow though, but it's because of the number of folks on; the number posting; and the number of "guests" lurking, which is usually 2-3 times the members at any given time.

Nabo, as of 4:45 there were 1123 guest and 424 members logged in.

Is there a discriminator toggle that would give members priority over these lurkers?

Did Finheaven sign the NAFTA & GATT Treaties?

PLEASE! Let's close our borders.:D :fire:

During high peak times visitors should be blocked from viewing unless they login. Most boards do this as traffic control.

Easier said than done.
We'll be upgrading.... again... soon, we're looking at a second server.

03-13-2006, 10:46 PM
Is there an update in process or something. It's gotten to the point that I click on something and get up to allow it up load up. This is the offseason, I can't imagine it during the season.

Well, we reached the maximum concurrent users that we can handle.

Trust me when I say we're getting every ounce of production out of the server...

Measures are, however, in process to rectify the situation. A bit of patience during this explosion in activity is appreciated.

Hopefully we'll get more new threads informing us that FinHeaven is acting all slow for them. It is imperative that we get these new threads. Otherwise we might not find out that this phenomenon has actually occured.

I wanted to start a new thread about how blazing fast the site was this morning, but was scared that Warf, Muck and the others would get pissed after all the agrevation of the past few days they have had. They have done an OUTSTANDING job keeping things running as smooth as they did!!
