Dear all,

This is to notify you that we have installed Traffic Shaping to the site today. We have noted recently that the number of members on the site simultaneously was causing server overload at times - I suppose we are victims of our own success...

This may result in you getting a "Server busy - please try later" message if the server becomes overloaded. If this happens, please be patient and you will get onto the site as the load decreases.

Thanks.

We have turned off the traffic shaping for now, as a few issues were identified that arose as a result of it being implemented. We need to examine the issue of server load in more detail, before we decide how to progress further with this idea or other alternative ideas for managing the server loading.

We hope that we didn't cause you too much inconvenience.
