After investigation, it seems the lag and timed out pages is being caused by the major influx of new players. It is being caused by one of our database servers being totally overloaded, the log move created a little more room, but simply not enough for the new players. Seems we bit off more than we could chew with advertising. All advertising has now been paused.

We ask that you be patient, we are doing everything we can. And the lag should slowly but surely go away of the next couple of days. We hope the donator days you were all credited is enough compensation for this.

We are now looking in to getting even more hardware. We are going to increase our capacity by at least 50% before we commence advertising again.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Good luck!

All those new players suddenly with friend/blacklist must be an added strain too.

Still better than a year ago though

Perhaps you could create a "new log" for new players and after 30 days move them to a different log for users between the ages of (Lets says) 30-90 days...that way you can update and delete inactive players who never return to the site after making an account. I think this would help keep up with inactive players...giving the ability to weed them out from the rest of us who are dedicated.

Don't want to delete the newer players? Remove them from the database of an active player and have them put on a mailing list which would require them to "click this link to stay active" within a certain amount of time.

Hope this helps!! (And hope my signature isn't too big again...don't need another pointless warning!! )

Sounds good. I say just shut down new registrations and start deleting all inactives (past a month maybe?), I noticed major lag when trying to look for the dollar sale today.
