    Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    Absolutely, milk-through-the-nose, purple faced hilarious.

    Thanks, woy and pedro, for all of your work in trying to get this situation resolved.

    Question. I believe the last person threads 1-11 are archived. If those are simply deleted, will that help? If so, I'd say ditch 'em.

    We dont have a resource utilization issue in terms of space used, just bandwidth, so the archives can stay.

    Policing the last thread and no more Cbus pictures sound easy enough to do

    I think with the number of page views that thread gets, that it might really help to just not attach pictures and get rid of our avatars.

    Image links should be ok as they steal bandwith from other sites.

    Would it help if when we logged in we went into "the thread" and stayed in there, doing a refresh of the page, instead of doing a "search" at the top of the page? This would keep people from going in and out of "the thread". Again, I'm totally clueless about any of this, just asking questions that a 5 year old might think of...

    I'm not sure but possibly. I don't know how the database is structured but my assumption is that when you view a page it is pulling a range of posts based on an indexed database column (post #) rather than doing a keyword search through entire posts. If so, then doing searches is going to use more CPU than refreshing, but not necessarily more bandwidth. So yes, I think minimizing the number of searches would be helpful to the overall speed of RZ, but I do not think it woudl help with the bandwidth issues.

    indexed database column (post #)
    that would be pulling from the last viewed post number next to your last visit. If you are sitting on the site I assume the "New Posts" button searches on your ID first as opposed to the site first, then pulls the number of posts since your last search.

    If you left for 2 months and did it then it might cause a larger strain, but that would be a one time deal.

    To clarify, I don't think using the "search for new posts" feature is that big a drag on resources. it's the key word searches that would really tax CPU.

    Re: Key word searches.

    What if you made it so a search could only go back so far. (Perhaps by limiting it to 6 months, or lopping off old pages.)

    Just brainstorming.

    I don't think there is any big harm in doing key word searches, except during peak hours when lots of people on using site. During those times it could cause the site to slow down. Searches, if I am correct, do not cause an excessive use of bandwidth, which is the primary problem RZ is having right now.

    IIRC, wasn't there a suggestion to limit the number of posts displayed per page?

    I'll help anyway I can. Just let me know. I'll defer to those who know better on the tech stuff though.
