Overloaded Servers and Eaten Posts
I've got users complaining frequently about posts getting lost/eaten. Also, we're experiencing the dreaded overloaded server message a lot. One user is even suggesting we move but we still have over $100 in the bank and a 2.5 year history with BBBoy (as in, a boatload of posts). Please advise.

Thanks!
KP

I see the issue is semi-addressed. It was suggested that search engines were trolling open BBBoy boards. My board is members only; nobody but registered, validated members can read and post.

Hi Kitten_Poker :smile:

If the server is busy at any given moment, it will affect all boards on the server, not just an individual one, which means that all boards on the server will be affected by the search engine spiders. What tends to happen is that once there is a heavy traffic buildup, instead of waiting a couple of minutes, as the message suggests, people click the link to the page they are trying to access over and over again - this only makes things worse. I'll let BbBoy know that some posts on your board 'eaten' though :smile:

Well...if we were to change hosts, would BBBoy refund my money?

Unfortunately we have a no refund policy, you're welcome to transfer your credit to any other board on the network, but there are no refunds. :smile:
