Unapproved members can't view that thread, Chelemar. :)

Theory, I'm going to quote the relevant portion here for you:

It obviously wasn't designed with scaling in mind. Where it once held forty people without issue, as little as fifteen people (if active) can choke it now. If we pay for another processor, that's only going to delay the situation again. The only long-term solution is going to be me writing new software for the site. [...]

Ultimately, though, Elliquiy basically cannot structurally continue in its current state.

[...]

I might be able to put the Shoutbox back up on a schedule, but it won't be on 24/7 until we get an upgrade, and even then, I'll need to ask that people leave it when not using it.

I am sorry about this. Thank you for your understanding : /
