Default Slow loads and embedded links

Is it just me or has the board been really slow loading since yesterday? Last night I found the home page would not load at all (505-no server response).

And what's with the gobbley-goop "(embedded link disabled maximum reached)".. Thing inside of posts?

I havent seen any of the embedded link errors, but my guess for the slow server response time would be that it is a bandwidth issue.

As for bandwidth... not an ossue on this end.

for link issue: I thought the embedded link thing was just on my end. Bit take a look at this thread:

http://clubcrosstrek.com/index.php/t....html#msg10300

Go to AWDfreak's most recent post. That embed link error comment is in that post too.

I got the 505 error the other day, several times. The website did not load.

For the slow loading, it's probably just our host server is being access more than normal. We're on a shared host so sometimes it might get overloaded a bit. If it continues more than just a few days it could be that our site is getting too busy and we'll have to look into upgrading our service.

For the link embedding, it's just for YouTube/other video sites. We only allow 12 embedded videos per page to help with load times. We have to cap it somewhere, otherwise people could post 100 videos in one page and it would kill our site.

Took me several attempts to open this link. I kept getting "page not available" and error messages. Get a lot of "waiting to load" icons when trying to access pages. I believe the site overloads often from too much traffic/too little band width issues.

Interesting, I haven't had any load issues lately, but I am usually on earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon (for the most part), so it may be a timing issue that the servers are loaded more during the day. I'll check into it.

Same, clubcrosstrek- I am usually on at times where this is lower traffic as well. The site being slow to load may be a sign of CC getting more popular!

If it continues, maybe consider adding a paypal donation function to help offset the costs of greater bandwidth?

Yeah, we are looking at a few different revenue options. The problem is, you can't make everyone happy but this IS an expense to us so we have to figure something out eventually.

Our hope is to start getting vendors to sign up to advertise on the site, but we'll see as time goes on!
