We're popular! was created by IsraeliRD

With the bots, at least.
We found out we got 15k registrations (15,001!!) with bots, and that might have been why the site been acting so slowly. Besides the registrations disabled for a while, if you registered on our site from the 11th of January and your account is unactivated... your account is now deleted. We also deleted a large number (~250) users that were registered and activated (more bots), but we have a sneaking suspicion a few legit accounts were deleted as well. In our defense they looked really suspicious.

Hopefully performance slightly improves. By 400%*.

Page loads seem to be noticeably faster based on prior creation speed numbers. Thank you. Is it possible to set up a server to filter out some of the bot traffic?

I have noticed some other potential causes of slow page loading times. I am currently looking into the issue and hope to have some resolutions for folks by this evening.


EDIT: It appears the source of the slow loading times is our shared hosting server. We are currently discussion alternative hosting plans at this point in time and will provide an update later this month.

Haha damn, I thought my 29.3 seconds yesterday would've been the record. Then again lately the forums were 1-2 seconds for me even on the bigger topics.

I should mention that the mega.co.nz sites don't work on my Mac, because it requires updated browsers, which I don't and can't possibly have.
