Default HP Members should be pretty proud of yourselves!!!

You all brought the server to its knees on Sunday, at around 4:30pm .. which I am actually glad to see that we are growing to that caliber! I will have to think about a new server to support our growth. Any donations at this time will be much appreciated!

In the meantime, I had to make some changes:
Chat is still there, but not on every page like it was. Had to set it up like this until we can get the server optimized for the amount of traffic we are receiving.

Hookah Pro Community has a very high amount of traffic .. and why shouldn't it!? We are a very popular community, with a lot of really great Members! Keep it up everyone Show your Hookah Pro Love!

Cheers! .. The Hookah Pro Staff

If it wasn't for the alcohol I was drinking last night, and the cute girls accompanying me .. I would have been freaking out! But with those two key ingredients I wasn't sweating it because I thought it was a minor issue. Imagine my surprise when I got home and saw what was really going on! I was in full panic mode! I was up till about 1am working on it.

I had approx. 4000 error msgs in my mail over the last 12 hours. That is how many times someone tried to connect to the site in 12 hours! That is pretty friggen awesome! It was a b1tch to clean up my mail box, but nice to see how popular we have become

I still got some database cleanup and optimization to do .. we are at the limits on the server we are on .. due to our popularity as the best hookah community! Yeah I said it "BEST!" anyhow due to the amount of traffic and Members of this fine community .. we are pushing the limits of the server we are on. We maxed out the CPU of the server to like 50% LOL! Like I said, you should all be proud of yourselves w00T!

Cheers!

It is on the front page ... and any donations made will be GREATLY appreciated! (as they always are!) .. like I said before all donations go into the community and we are going to be moving to another host or server very soon! So they will definitely help out with the increased cost. (If any Elites would like to "re-donate" that would be much appreciated too ..)

Donations or not though, we will get by this and continue the exceptional growth of this fine community Where there is a will, there is a way! We all have the will ... so we will make this happen!

Cheers!!

It's funny how you don't know what you got till it's gone! Soooo true! I was having HP withdrawals! lol .. I love this site!

and on top of the withdrawals, I was in panic mode figuring out what had happened! Once I figured out what happened, I rested a little easier .. glad it is all worked out, for now ..

Cheers!

ya it was reaffirmed to me how much HP is better sunday when i saw why some vendors were banned on other forums (like just their name, freaking retarded).

i really hate the nazi style control of some forums but i really dont think there is anything close to that here, even on the bad days

Al masri, it's all our fault for speaking arabic in the chat. Big brother shut us down about 5 minutes into our conversation!LOL! But seriously, causing the serve to crash is yet
another sign of the sheer strength of this great community. We may need to get Bill Gates involved soon at the pace with which we're growing!

I am still in shock about our stats:

"Members: 6,235, Active Members: 5,983"

Back when I first joined (January 2008) I think we only had around only 1,600 members!!!! Not a lot of people were active.

Now, I am happy that this place grew THAT fast!

Damn son! i had to confirm with SOLOONE87 on aim that it was down, and not just my computer sucking ballls. (it had crashed earlier in the day)

I was looking forward to getting on here and posting, and chatting when i got off of work. Sad face was I! =[

Lol but were good now, and within a couple months i plan to donate. Right now, no bank account, and all my money is going to bills, and to pay my parents back, and rent. =]
