    Default Server too busy?

    I've been getting this quite frequently as of late: The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    I am having it everyday now. It used to be once every few months now it seems every other time I try to get on the site it is too busy. And I go on at odd times in the middle of the night

    Don't get me wrong, it's not that the server can't have a life of its own or anything. It's just that we all count on him...

    I experience it probably 5-6 times a day and it usually lasts for 5-6 minutes. I've already suggested that I think the counting thread might be to blame.

    I just got it again a couple of minutes ago:

    vBulletin Message
    The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.

    All times are GMT -4. The time now is 12:43 PM.
    ------------------------------------------------

    Sometimes it seems to be a small hiccup... sometimes it takes longer. Looks like it only lasted about 5 mins this time for me.

    I'm getting it a lot, too. Naturally, I think hitting the refresh button 25 times will fix matters.

    I just come back 20 minutes later.

    I get it a lot. If more people count and the problem gets worse then we know what the problem is. But looking at other boards on big boards...We should not be having this problem.

    Is it possible the server is never too busy for a mod?

    That sounds like a joke but I don't mean it to be. It's not like the forum is crashing, it's just making some wait in the lounge I guess. Maybe, a mod always gets in no matter how busy things are?

    Maybe, but I doubt it. The forum's software and the server PD is one are two separate things.
