Server outage: Forumosa continues to grow

Out of database space?!

Folks

You may have noticed that the website went down for some time yesterday (6 April in Taiwan). Many thanks to engerim for correcting this situation and analyzing what happened.

Basically, we’ve maxed out our database limits (again!). So, we are upgrading to the next level of service to accomodate our continue growth.

Forumosa continues to see steady upward growth. We have maintained an average of about 150,000 unique visitors a month (peaking at 200,000 in January 2013) with 28% of traffic coming from first-time visitors – a 4 year high.

I want to thank Tempo Gain for ably steering the forums and setting a postive and constructive tone, and to the moderating team for keeping things in order.

Keep well
gus.
