I am an administrator at a huge hockey board - almost 30,000 members - and when ever we anticipate when their might be a ton of traffic, may it be the playoffs, draft, trading deadline, we always turn off everyones aviators, signatures, close down the arcade, even close down our Lounge if necessary to help take the load off the server by wasting less bandwidth.

I don't think alot members would get their panties all tied up by doing this during the games, because speed is what we want. :)

And while I'm here why are we showing two rolling eye smilies on the right and no :) ?

The problem is that we're not currently running at 100% of our capability. We're running at about 40% right now.

We're in the middle of a rather large project in regards to infastructure. Once completed, we should be A-OK again. :)
