  • Slow Site - We're working on it!

    I'm sure most of if not all of you have recently noticed the site's loading time growing longer, and on occasion not being able to access BD at all.

    As we continue to expand and more and more horror fans make their way to BD, our current hardware is struggling to keep up with the added demand. Consider these growing pains. We are working on a solution right now to either modify our current setup or move to a completely new one, either way we know it sucks and we're trying to figure it out as fast as we can.

    I hope to have an announcement soon about our new or modified home, one thing is for sure though, whatever change we make will be a big one and should mark a huge increase in performance and speed.

    Thanks for putting up with these issues while we sort everything out.

    Will this change impact the forums in anyway? I wouldn't want to lose anything we have here.

      Thanks for letting us know! I was wondering why BD was slow today,but it has gotten a lot better in the past 30 minutes. Thanks for taking the time to work on making BD a better experience for everyone!

                It was a frightening couple of hours. Thanks for what I am guessing is hard work!

                    Of course you're the first to recommend that we need to blow loads.

                      Nope, the only thing you should notice would be a faster loading site.

                        I've heard people talking about the site going slow, but it seems fine for me.... I haven't noticed a slow down in speeds at all.

                          I'm too much enjoying the site to get too bent out of shape.
                          I think it's great it's growing... that's a good thing, and patience doesn't cost anything so I'd imagine we are all in support the steps being taken and will just ride it out and look forward to a solution when it happens.

                            I've had to refresh a couple times, no big deal. I doubt anyone's going to go all Bruce Banner on you guys. We all appreciate the effort you put out to keep this place going. Do what you gotta do.

                              You guys would be surprised at some of the emails we get then, some of them are pretty intense... ranging from people telling me they're never coming to BD again and we need to fix our shit, to people telling me how they can build a better site in their sleep and I'm a hack, to the people who send message after message saying the same thing over and over again until we're back to normal.

                              Someday I'm going to write a book about being a website owner and all the insane people and stories I've come across in the past 10 years.
