Visitors should jump sharply today because it was features on the morning news this morning.
Here's an interesting site I found. Spike in traffic lately as gas prices rise...
That site can't be accurate. It doesn't show any addicts!!!
___It missed me too
___Actually, our traffic has tapaered off from last week a bit as well? That might be a good thing given the Server Busy messages that appeared two morings last week Sorry about that but we are in the process of trying to get the site on a new server with only a minimum amount of down time on an early Sunday morning sometime in the next few weeks.
___Mike about the PM wrt CleanMPG stickers/decals ... I will try and contact Mike N to get a few ready to go in the very near future.
___A vid was posted at CNN this morning and we are approaching 1,000 Members and Guests as I type. Let us pray the general viewer does not get to many Server Time Out messages.
___For the active member and casual guest, let me apologize if you received a Server time out. I am sorry the faster server was not online in time for your visit as we are still working on a way to image the drive and have that transferred over. It will probably be another week or two with the host giving us conflicting upgrade procedures
Most users ever online was 1,098, Today (6-3-2008) at 08:55 AM.
406 members in last 24 hours
is there some kind of note we can put on the front page or change the server is busy message and say we are working on it......?
Something should definitely be put on the homepage to minimize the number of visitors that don't stay with the site. Seems like new visitors will think this site won't be any good and decide to look elsewhere.
This is good news and bad news all at once for us CMPGers.
I hope people are patient and realize that if the servers are busy that they must be onto something good!
If things get too slow are you able to send your above message via email to registered users?
Thanks for the idea! You'll notice I implemented it as soon as I was able to.
I don't know how much of a hard time other people have had, but I haven't been able to get on at all today. I must have hit the refresh button a thousand times :angry: and never got through once until now, past 1 in the morning.
Is anyone else having it that bad?
(If anyone has an answer, call me instead because I might not be able to get on again )
___Between 01:30 and 08:00 PM, there were no new posts. That should tell you something all by itself. I sent out a mass E-Mail an hour or so ago hoping to explain it all but not sure it made it out or not either? Today was one tough day for CleanMPG for sure and I am sorry you had to experience it :ccry:
I don't think the email made it.
But I mean, I've been trying to get on non-stop even from 8 onwards. I'm just wondering if anyone else had it that bad, is all.
Edit: Not being able to get onto CleanMPG felt like losing an arm and a leg. :angry:
Yeah, I was CleanMPG deprived all day long too. From my first attempt until 10 minutes ago, I was not able to get on the site. I figured it had something to do with the CNN link posted this morning and was just hoping that all of those new people were getting on even if I couldn't.
Wow that was something else, no CMPG for the day and I think I caused it. Sometime this morning before all heck broke lose I decided to finally help out and click that donation button and it all went downhill from there.
Well I don't think the email made it out and I hope you have a better Wednesday. I only checked every couple hours because I did not want to add to the problem but hitting refresh over and over.
I still think we should start up an IRC channel somewhere just so we can all go there and shoot the bull when the website is busy.
Wow! The numbers are up. Currently Active Users: 706 (15 members and 691 guests) @ 12:20a.m.
Most users ever online was 1,891, Yesterday at 01:48 PM.
I was going through Cleanmpg withdraws...lol, can't even make it through all the new posts anymore during my lunch break.
What a day. I couldn't get on the site from about 9:00 yesterday morning to 12:00 last night.
I couldn't even reach the homepage from my first try at noon to 11PM.
I tried to donate for the server and had to wade thru my old emails even to do that. I'm suffering withdrawal.
No need to apologize. The CNN piece probably has people coming out of the woodwork to save money. And that's all good!!!
As HemiSync said, I too only tried every few hours so as not to overload the site since I figured it was a volume issue.
