    Most likely the Server. As the site continues to get busier (file uploads, guests thumbing through pic enriched ride reports) it slows the clock speed of the Server. Will eventually have to upgrade again...

    :rolleyes: <-- I need a smiley that is looking up at the above post with the look of doubt... ;)
    Oh and by the way, like I'm not guilty! Ha hah!

    Edit: Which brings me to a point I brought up as a concern a while back about making the Ride Reports a "Members Only" forum. It was at one time, but I decided to open it to the public.

    I can tell you that it is mostly Guest's visiting the Ride Reports and all those pics getting downloaded... just sayin'

    As Homer Simpson might say... "D'Oh! stupid guests..."

    I'd like to think it's outsiders Googling things like Tracer 275 or Ibis Mojo HD3 Reviews, then being directed to IMTB as the definitive authority on bicycle reviews. ;)

    To be honest, I have googled multitudes of things and imtbtrails has come up on the first page on many occasions! :thumbsup: That's pretty cool!

    Is it possible to leave the RR open to guests, but block pics except for Members? Only by logging in can you see the pics.

    Otherwise I'm fine with it being limited to Members.

    Make the pics small/low rez for guests. They would need to click each pic to see full size or join to see full size.

    I think the pics need to be there, presuming that's what's going to draw in traffic. Of course, then that slows down the server. So you'll have to figure the ROI for a new server! :)

    The return on investment I get is... I get a stable forum to hang out with the people I care most about in this world.
    I can safely say do not own a forum if your goal is to make . . . money! :Roflmao:laugh:......:cautious:

    Does hosting photos off-site at places like photobucket help keep your server stress down?

    If this place is not a money maker and just for your enjoyment, why not make the photos thumbnail-only or restricted to members? When people sign up, how does that help? Or does it?

    All good ideas. I'm going to contact AndyB and see if he has ideas that will not completely rob guests but enhance it for members in regards to uploaded pics. I think thato a good direction....
    Thank you!

    The Site is now set up where only an imtbtrails member can see the pics on any forum...
    A guest once signed up would instantly see all attachments.
    Let's try that for a while and see how it goes...:)

    It's running very slow today... but probably because everyone is reading the RR for Bikerpelli and the forum is having a tough time serving all of those pics over and over and over again :)

    Has the site been slow for others the past couple of days? One thing I noticed is video ads on the sidebar that seem to hinder loading pages (I cannot use an ad blocker at work).

    It has been hit-or-miss for me the last couple of days.
