I think PC should consider uprading there server as it very often is overloaded, and gets database errors. It isnt like Rukario cant afford it (i would guess) with all the donations he gets

The server crashes because of name changes. Not because of it being overloaded. :(

The server we have now handles PC's load just fine.. Like any server, sometimes processes can't get stuck or services can crash.. or even have bad timing with certain background services/tasks, such as updating stats, logs, and the like. Its just part of the whole web thing.

Anyway, we constantly monitor the server and are not even truely close to the point where we need an upgraded server.. yet. I'm sure we will in the near furture, as PC grows, but for now, we're ok.. we just have to put up with occasional crashes and slow loads.

+ I HATE MOVING.

:( Actually, iirc, donations and ad revenue don't even fully cover the costs of this server, so... yeaaah. We'd love to upgrade and totally would if we had the funds but we just don't. This server's actually pretty good though, when you look at our track record, so I'm not too bothered.

At least, PC is more reliable than it was before our last move. :D

(Honestly, I don't blame you) :P

I have had some problems but i dont blame them on the server

As I was saying i dont blame it on the server but an upgrade would be good as this site grows and i didnt know it runs on donations but i have guesses that they get money for the ads that they have.

Oh my gosh, once a week is nothing, trust us. XD; There was a very long period of time there where it was practically impossible to load PC at all, and we even had month-long outages where the forums would stay down. You'd be lucky to get a thread to load without a database error and even luckier if you got to reply to it.

All in all this is much much much better.
