Just an FYI to folks... With training camp starting this week, we are moving the forum to regular season mode. This means Broncos & NFL related topics in the main forum, with Off Topics being posted in their appropriate forums.

With Kaylore and SoCal's training camp reports being posted here, the traffic to the site is very likely to increase to the point that the server could be overwhelmed. Shutting off avatars can help save bandwidth so maybe that won't happen. It's a small thing that just might keep the Mane accessible...

I'd rather see the sigs go.....but that's just me I guess

and why is such foolishness like the Omane awards allowed to remain stickied on the main board? ???

Good... I am all for turning everything off if it speeds up the server.

Thanks.

The only time I've ever noticed slow servers is during the heavy traffic that goes with gamedays. Otherwise, it seems to run fine for me.

Glad to hear on-season mode is here though. Can't wait for September.

Just a note... There will be a few exceptions as always, including "General" threads dedicated to other popular sports. "General MLB," and "General NCAA Football" come to mind...

Just an FYI, the description still reads off season mode. Just thought it might throw off newbies and stuff. I am SO glad the season is just about here!!

I've got another idea on how to increase server space/performance.......

Get rid of that worthless "Neck Pony Nation" thread.....how many replies now? 12,000?

"How's your day?"
"Great! How's yours?"
"Bump....wheee !"
"Oh, this thread is WAY to low....BUMP....wheee!!"

I asked this in another thread (about upgrading the server or something), but I don't think anybody replied. Would people clearing out their PM boxes help the server load? I have 40 in there and the most recent is from February. I'm sure a lot of people have over 100 with many being months old. So would clearing out all the old PM's help?

I believe the issue previously didn't come with the 'memory space', which is what pm's take up. The issues have been with the amount of page requests at a single time and the time it takes to load the items on a page request. That is what takes up the bandwidth. Correct me if I'm wrong all you experts out there!

What is, NPN is not worthless or loading pages uses big bandwidth?

I second that ... Avatars are more important than sigs. Sigs kinda get in the way of a thread's reading flow, a little bit.

Some superstitious thing, I assume ?

What sassy said... It's not the hard drive storage that's the problem... It's how many people are hitting it at once. We haven't been doing too bad though during peak times.

It goes way back almost 10 years, to the DPO forum that several of the old timers here participated on. It's basically just a mojo thread. Like you say: a superstitious thing.

Definitely not worthless....unlike 3/4's of what's in the Ring of Fame section and the Gala Awards.

So just the ones you don't participate in are deemed not worthy. Isn't a ring of fame thread one that gets a ton of hits and participation? So if people are constantly posting its site favorite, thus its a ring of fame? The only one I participate in are the survivor and rep threads but I don't roll my eyes at the NPN or others.
