As mentioned in the title i was bored and realised something. As you can see everytime you look at the index there are nearly 9000 members on these boards, and that can cause quite a slowdown. Maybe 9000 members is quite good and means that a lot of posts get made. I think not. If you look at the members lists and go on the top posters then go to about page 20 then you will realise that even by that stage most of the people have less then 50 posts. I got to page 90 before it locked up, but by page 50 everybody only had 3. My point? There was 382 pages of members, and only about 5% of those were regular posters. So wouldn't it be a good idea to get rid of the people who sign up and never post, as they probably waste a chunk of connection speed?
