Forum was cleared of a lot of old threads last month.  It was to help with the problem of the forum crashing all the time.

The DQ thread OP doesn't even post on this forum anymore, and hasn't for a really really long time.

The majority of her posts are still on here... just the DQ posts were wiped (as far as I could tell.. wasn't looking for any other posts she might have made that are now gone).  Yes, I am that nosy and went looking to be helpful and post the urls to that saga.  But.. gone.

I regret the disappearance of so many old threads -- have mentioned the matter, in the "Glitches, errors, problems" sub-section.  However; what must be, must be, I suppose...

I understand why it's done since I hate when the site freeze or slow down, but it's a shame newcomers can't read about some of the infamous "recurring characters."

They might want to delete some more threads than because I have had numerous problems trying to log on in the last couple of days. Odd times too like 11 pm EST on  Friday night.

I'm wondering if they are doing a weekly maintenance  on Friday evenings. I've had that happen 3 weeks in a row and now just take it as matter of course. No eHell late Friday evening. I'm fine with it, particularly if it keeps things running smoothly the rest of the time and is consistent.

I was never a very great DQ fan -- but there was splendid other material which I sorely miss.  Well, "life is change"; and there's more available stuff on the Internet to enjoyably waste time on, than there are hours in the day in which to waste it.

We discovered that there was a scheduled maintenance function happening on Friday evenings, starting about 10:20 pm EST, that appeared to lock up an entire table it was optimizing.   We have disabled that function for the time being.
