I should say this sounds impressive, but the sql engines seem to be doing fine. Still some cleaning out of unused accounts should be done, because of the massive amount of spamaccounts. Most of them don't succeed in getting their accounts activated, but clog up the database for no reason. It more the extended forum structure -with different sections- that turned out a bit unstable a few months back.
We should keep on emphasizing the importance of keeping the attachment file size. No black/white schematic needs to be 600k. But it's mostly those 1MB direct from the camera gutshots that are dragging us down.
Thanks everyone for taking this in account.
