    I have been seeing the following error quite a bit lately. Is the forum really getting so much traffic that it's overloading the server? Is there anything that can be done about this?

    I've experienced it quite a bit this morning. Surprising, since its pre-7 am.

    I blame the bots and spammers

    We could use a Tron in there to fight the spammers and bots.

    This is happening with more and more regularity. Happened to me 6 times today.

    Odd. Hasn't happened to me a single time. And I've been on quite frequently today.

    Yeah, I was just trying to be a smartass, but as punishment I've been getting the "Server too busy" about every other page load attempt for the last 10 minutes.

    I've had it happen to me often. 5-6 times yesterday, and twice today already.

    It just keeps getting worse. It is really ruining this forum. It's making it impossible to do anything here.

    It is definitely taking away from this forum experience.

    Happened to me approx 10 times today, including about 10 minutes ago.

    *edit* I just tried to send this post and got, "The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later."

    This is super-weird. I haven't gotten a single error message myself.

    Anyway, hopefully Jason can figure it out.

    Yep. It happened many times in the chat tonight. One time, the server was "too busy" for a full six minutes.
