Comments Reply 1 of 9 gorgonzola Posts: 185member January 2, 2002 10:36PM I'm going to try keeping them up, and then play it by ear. If the loads become simply too high for the server to handle, I'll shut down the forums temporarily, but I'm not planning on outright shutting them down by default.We'll see how the server handles and go from there. Reply 2 of 9 applenut Posts: 5,768member January 3, 2002 1:47AM how about shutting down the macnn forums first this time? we always get reated with no respect.BTW, which forum is getting higher traffic these days? Reply 3 of 9 ghost_user_name Posts: 22,667member January 3, 2002 1:51AM Applenut, neither forum is "less respected" by the staff . Most likley both will be down or both will be up-- more likley the latter. Also, last month the MacNN forums had about double the traffic as AI.[ 01-03-2002: Message edited by: Nick ]</p> Reply 4 of 9 groverat Posts: 10,872member January 3, 2002 5:27PM I say you hike up the time between posts to something like 5-10 minutes. Reply 5 of 9 macaddict Posts: 1,055member January 3, 2002 7:42PM I don't see why traffic is so high during keynotes...people should be watching the keynote, not posting messages!

They're watching the keynote and simultaneously posting about it. We will probably push flood control up, though, and make the minimum time between postings 90-120 seconds or so during the keynote. We're also serving our live updates page from this server, so we don't want people spamming the board during the keynote.
