...that I have been a pretty bad example of a forum admin during the last weeks. I know that we (sadly) STILL have major problems with the overall performance of the board. Even tho that at times it is running fast/ok, a lot of times (mostly when the majority is online) it is NOT. I've had to deal with some very annoying personal issues during the last 1-2 months, which made it even more difficult for me to concentrate on the forum issues. But that shouldn't be an excuse, esp. since the issues are around basically since the switch to the v4 of the software.
I really hope I'll be able (somehow, right now too exactly sure how) to turn things around here and give you guys the performance you deserve and just an overall, usable forum, without any interruptions. The solutions/ideas of how to achieve this vary from switching the hosting provider, to bring in another code-expert or to create a brand new installation of the software and import the database to a wonder! I'll be evaluating the various options with the mods and the users in order to achieve our goal.
And I also have to say a big fat THANK YOU to all loyal users of this forum, who are with us since years, or just weeks, who stick around in these "slow" and sometimes probably frustrating times and make the forum what it is. You guys are just awesome and the sole reason why I want to keep this forum alive, I'm sure the internet wouldn't be as PHUN as it is without you guys!
