I wasn't actually told things were getting strained until yesterday, when the problems really started occurred. If I knew this weeks ago, I would have acted sooner. No matter what you or others might think, I work really hard to keep things as stable as possible, and give 100%.
It comes down more to there being so many threads with thousands and thousands of posts in them which puts a constant strain on the database. As I developed all the database work around the flash games, I was able to control that better, and consider load, etc on that particular database.
