    I am guessing it was the high volume of traffic that overloaded the server. I think we exceeded the bandwidth limit with everyone clicking refresh every two seconds.

    ya I am sure that is what it was, I turned off all the avatars and sigs to reduce the bandwith I was using a week ago. Next year site needs to go to low bandwith mode. Offer still stand for Glen though.

    While we always like donations this was not a billing problem. We were sending out too many emails an hour due to the high volume. Problem has been corrected and we shouldn't have any more trouble.

    not gonna like I almost wish you had to pay for a membership here, it would weed out some rift raft and wouldn't get those other teams fans jumping on here to just talk smack.

    I stopped working right away and did nothing but contact our host. They were understanding enough to realize that this is the busiest day of the year on these forums and just gave us a warning. However they said if it happens again then a 100 dollar fee would occur.

    So if you would like to help and donate to pay for future fees, or to purchase a better plan to prevent this from happening again, it would be great.

    I donated last week. I'm considering donating more, but I'm still waiting for the magical gold user name thing (and my 1000 rep points for the SI LeBron cover). ;)

    No rush, Glen, I know you're busy. Just giving you a friendly reminder with all you've got on your plate I didn't want you to forget. :)

    If it was just the emails, perhaps you can add some sort of throttle back on that or just turn it off on busy days.

    Even just a dollar a month, what regular here wouldnt pay a dollar a month, or better yet, $10 a year. That means you must shell out $10 to sign up, keep the traffic to those that really want to be here. Anyone here think $10 is to much to pay for this sight for a full year?

    I think a mod should start a thread about that to see what people really think. There are a lot of quality posters that i dont want to scare away for the $10.

    Personally, I think this is a great idea. I've donated more than that already this year and I'm thinking about donating more. This a great site and you are right: the membership fee would definitely keep out a lot of the riff-raff.
