    FYI, the site you posted:

    Currently Active Users: 51 (35 members and 16 guests)
    Most users ever online was 230, 4 Weeks Ago at 03:50 AM.

    clubwrx.net:
    Currently Active Users: 267 (81 members and 186 guests)
    Most users ever online was 1036, 01-22-2004 at 05:43 PM.

    This is a big difference, so before you go saying they recieve way more hits and traffic, you should really just check how many users are online. Its 8:32AM right now (PST) and we have 267 users surfing. During peak times it does get quite a bit higher, and the Vbulletin support team suggested a dual processor server with 3 GB of ram for a site our site (judging from our max_connections on mysql). Personally I think its a bit overkill, so we are looking at other ways to lower the load on the server.

    Anyway, thanks for the suggestions, and yes I have checked the logs for these types of "attacks", and we do not experience them often on clubwrx.net.

    I would be very leary of allowing anyone to touch my iptables to remove undesired packages. Damned FedEX is probably slamming this server with crap. Not to mention USPS delivering all the bulk mail to the server. It's really beginning to pile up. That's what the problem is.

    That's why I should be in charge of internet access. People should have to take a test (proctored by me of course) to gauge your ability to use the internet. If you fail, NO INTERNET FOR YOU.

    Here's a tip, graduate highschool first, then get a job in the IT industry where you're actually running a server and installing stuff that's not fedora, mandriva, or debian (and subsequently using it). Then, please, take an English class for the love of all that is holy. *Then* and only then come back and let me know personally that you've garnered some sort of clue, and I'll give you the test.

    p.s. someone needs to call the maid or something, these packages are a real problem. please open, sort, and dispose of them kthxbye

    Wow, thanks everyone for making me feel really inferior to the knowledge in this thread.

    Now excuse me while I go watch an animated G-rated movie to repair my brain.

    I'm reading a lot of "blah blah blah", but if you (Tim) need donations from us members, let everyone know. Even if its only like ten bucks, I am sure that we could have enough donations to really upgrade.

    The site is currently sponsored by vendors we need too much more in order to keep the site running smoothly. However, if we do have more suppose I would think we can offer more to our members in the long run. If you guys feel like making a donation, just buy a set of license plates or some stickers. I'm looking to see if there are additional "features" that we can add onto the site for "premium" members.

    Most people are not willing to pay for any kind of membership, but I'll probably have something for general supporting members, premium members, and something else. This will cost about 3 to 15 cents a day for those loyal ClubWRX.net members, and depending on the number of people signing up, we can probably add new features on the site.

    Why couldn't we load balance some of the traffic to people who are willing to help host portions of the site?

    If you expanded to selling t-shirts as well that would be tre` pimp! I've looked everywhere online for WRX t-shirts (and other merchandise) but seldom have any luck. I've resorted to making my own at custom t-shirt shops (which can get pricey!).

    Most people (like me) would definitely put up the cash for some sweet ClubWRX shirts! And producing them in mass quantities as you know will save you big $$$.

    But make sure to include girl sizes!

    We had something like that on cafepress but they woudln't sell hte products because WRX is supposely licensed by Subaru. If we were to purchase these in volume, it's difficult to tell how many of each people are willing to buy. The whole process just becomes extremely difficult and time consuming.

    Right now I dont' know if bandwidth is a problem, the biggest problem that we have currently is the load that the site is putting on the server. The upgraded ram will help and I'm hoping to see a notiable difference. After that we'll have to start preparing for a server upgrade as the site continues to expand.
