Tomorrow in the afternoon to evening (+1 GMT) there will be a down time of a few hours of the forums. This is because an archive forums is going to be made, and we are going to cut down the size of the current public used forums (this one). The current forums is way too big and really has to be sized down. None of your posts/threads will be removed, just the forums will be down for a few hours.

All threads/posts made in 2001 to 2005 will be removed from the forums, while the archives contains threads and posts of 2001 to 2006. The estimated threads and posts in the end will be around 22,000 threads and 356,000 posts. The current forum has 69,764 threads and 907,105 posts. The archive forums will be public for everyone, but you cannot post nor make threads in any section.

Hope you'll be prepared.

Regards,
Skyrider

Actually, truthfully, it's no big deal. Will our post counts be reset / will any accounts be being deleted?

As long I won't rebuild them (meaning, recalculate), nope.

The posts/threads have not been removed yet due to a small issue I have to look in to. When that's done, I'll back up once again and remove threads without closing down the forums so you guys can post still. Once that is done, I have to see what is causing the lag issues besides the huge forum database.

Usually the lag comes after making a post. Sometimes takes forever to show me the post I just made. Hope that helps.

Same for me, I live in The Netherlands. If I press Submit Reply it takes a bit longer than usual to submit my reply.
