The code was a bit messed up. Way too many queries were going on - i've dropped the gimmicky mods to stop it happening again.
Plus I upgraded the forum to the newest version of phpbb just after the storm. Not sure if that helped or not but it probably did.

By the way, I was just poking at the number of posts I lost. I, in all actuality, couldn't care less about them.

I agree that the pages are loading much, much faster. Also I would like to let it be known that I abhor phpBB. I really do.

While all those little random features were nice, they do clog everything up and cause a mess, pulling us into a warpstorm. So cheers for cleaning that bugger up, all hail the astropath.

upping the version to the newest is more secure as well.

For all intents and purposes, this lasts at most about a week after the newest version is released. People are generally pretty quick to break things.

But, in the long run, it does increase security enough to make a difference. I'm pretty sick of the penis enlargement threads, so any steps towards their pre-destruction is good in my book.

I had a spam word filter on the previous version that had around 200 blocked cock flogger posts in a month.

I'm looking into ways of adding a different program as I think the way it blocked and delted posts may have contributed to the site failure.
