Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Re: Update Discussion for forums

Fixed a bug I thought I fixed but apparently I did not where any user could slowly kill the forums just by auto reloading the search page a ton.

A little context:
When you search something on the forums, the forums cache that and store it away. This includes searches for new or active posts/topics. If you hit the Active button 3 times, you'll cache 3 searches. All your cached searches are recycled when the forums consider you to no longer be online, which takes 30 minutes from the time you were last seen. Every time you search for something, the forums look through every cached search to see if any of them can be deleted.

The problem:
If a user does nothing but request new searches over and over and never goes online, this adds up to a lot of cached searches. Eventually it can get to the point where there are hundreds of thousands of them, and still every time a search page is loaded, the forums look through them all to prune the old searches. At that point it really starts taking a long time (up to 10 seconds or more) to go through that many cached searches, and this is done every single time anyone searches for anything.

So if you've noticed the forums being really slow recently, that's why. For those of you who don't hang out in the IRC, we have a questionably friendly bot named GregBot. He notifies people whenever a new post is made on the forum, and to do this he does nothing but reload the new posts page 24/7. Like I said I thought I fixed this but I was retarded and so I didn't. It's actually fixed now though.

You would do anything to not have to activate the extern.php tools, which are specifically made for automated tools, right? smile

That'd take effort though and would probably still have the same problem anyway. I don't think GregBot ever used extern though, even when it was available.

I thought processor made it that way because the extern was already deactivated. My bad.

Re: Update Discussion for forums

Well I guess I don't know, it might have been. I turned off extern because of the anonymity leaks so which came first? The GregBot or the anonymity?

Re: Update Discussion for forums

So I'm working on the new (can we even call it new at this point? It's been over a year now) PM system again and I actually got further than I realized last time. Anyway, this time around I fixed pages in folders, made some adjustments to the way selecting multiple PMs works, actually made selecting multiple PMs work, You can now also mark PMs as read or unread.
