    Give Admins a shade of green, global mods can be dark red and individual forum mods can be red

    just my 2 cents.

    All mods are still and will still be global moderators that can mod any forum. And, the names at the bottom of the forums and on the Forum Leaders page are coming back. The idea is that, even though any mod can moderate any section, certain mods are meant to specialize in certain sections so only those names will show as moderators for that section. I'm just waiting on the other admins to give me the list of who should be displayed where.

    S-type added that underline because everybody felt some distinction was a good idea. But suggestions are always good. For reference, we only have mods (who are all global), admins, and owner as far as groups. I believe green is off limits? :dunno:

    Yep, there's not much we can do except wait until people stop hammering the site. But, the site being busy is the good kind of problem.

    This is a new one for me, but I'm told this has happened before in Phun's history. My best guess—and it's only that—is that it's some kind of caching issue where that "busy" page was cached when that user visited and then some subsequent users got the same HTML without the username being changed.

    You can't actually access that user's account though right? Like you can't click on their name to get into their settings, right? And when the server stops giving you the "busy" message, it's back to your account?

    And, yeah, the influx of users for the celeb thing has been crushing the servers. Still running though.

    Must be running a bit hot though - I hope someone's opened the windows and put the fans on high in the server room? ;)

    Good that's what I figured.

    Yeah sorry, there's not much we can do at the moment. We have about 4x as many concurrent users as we normally do. It's gonna be a bit rough until this settles down.

    It takes me a few times to log in to actually post on here. I type in the correct information and it still kicks me out, it is odd. :confused:

    Yeah, we still have 4500 concurrent users which is about 2K more than our average, but earlier today it was frequently over 10K. Hopefully tomorrow is better given that all these leaks have slowed down and/or stopped.

    All the users online are gone, and so are many threads in other Forums. When I thank a post my name appears in plain blue only. What happened?

    We've cut down a few features while we have the influx of users.

    • The members list is disabled
    • The list of online users is disabled
    • The markup (colors) in "thanked" lists are disabled
    • The forumdisplay.php pages (list of threads) have been limited to show only the last n number of days (2 days for Celeb forums, a week for most others). But, that's just the default. You can go to the bottom of the thread list and change it to make more threads show.
    Most of these things will probably return once everything settles down, but we've been needing to tighten up performance for a while so we'll see.
