Actually, that usually gets most people's attention, come to think of it...

The board has pretty much been unresponsive for the last three hours or so. (I logged in over on Facebook and Irulan commented about it as well.)
Was it something with the server, or another DOS-type attack from somewhere?

We can do that with this software if needed. I'd rather not though. We have a ton of other blogs and boards on this server, so just be patient when it happens, and we'll get it fixed. We come to this board all the time, and use it as a weather vane for the rest of the server.
Omphalos wrote:Hi all. We figured out why the boards have been slowing down so much during the daytime. There was some buggy code in the search page at Omphalos Book Reviews that was doing it. We found it and took it out, so surfing should speed up, or at least shoud not get so slow again.

Also, I'm not getting the options to mark new threads as announcements, stickied, etc.
(Oh, and could you also remove all moderator privileges from the SandChigger account? I'm not sure what (sub)forum they're good on, but I see the Moderator link when I log in.)
