Guys - what's going on with the forum at the moment? I'm regularly getting 403 errors, presumably the forum is up and down quite a lot?

Yes you are right, last Week End the online results of the competition caused a server overload and therefore the Forum closed.

But since we have changed the server, we are experiencing several hosting problems, plus some members noticed the forum is a bit slow...

That is why at the moment we are looking to move the forum again to another server. That mean another forum closing, but the last - we hope.

Thank you for understanding =)

We are looking at getting a dedicated server. The shared host we currently use has just admitted that there are 200 websites on the server we are currently on! Also, we only are allowed 20 connections to the database at a time which is why queries are taking so long.

the dedicated server should solve a lot (hopefully all) of our problems.
