I have been working all night on the performance issues that we have been having on HobbyKings. During this time there were times that the forum and entire website seemed to be unavailable. The fact of the matter is, we are growing faster than this site can physically handle, so I will be working very hard to keep this site moving along. I may need to start scheduled downtime every so often to make sure no one is effected and confused when they cannot get in, but I will make it known to all when/if that happens well in advance. Thank you for your patience and thank you for your continued support in Hobby Kings!

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.

Cool Deek. Great of you to do this for all of us. I wouldn't mind any scheduled downtime if it means faster performance all other times.

I couldn't get in a while ago. But now everything seems to be working A-OK. Smile

Still running a tad slower than normal for me but I'm just happy I can get on HK. I can handle it being a little slow but when I can't get on is when it sucks. When you have to settle for posting at other sites is when you realize how awesome it is to be a member here Smile

This is great site and Im proud being member here. I hope you can solve those issues. Have you tried to optimize mysql database? You can find a lot of help from google about it.

That was what I was doing a majority of the time last night. I also completely cleared out what was the Trash Talking section to free up some space. I contacted our web host and they said that all of the sites that are running on the same server as us are having issues...so we'll wait and see if they can help us out.

Thank you everyone for being so patient.

I can only tell you what I heard...

A new server has been purchased by deekin.

Barring any problems, site should be running normally in a couple of days.

Keep all our fingers crossed!

Good job Joe,
You might need to delete some of the old old post that members have posted. You could set an expiry on posts so that they won't jam up the server. Just a thought.

Hobbykings is the sh*t!!!!!!
