We just had a database explosion. All seems fixed now.

We're getting alot more hits on the site nowadays (users online is hoving around the 300 mark). So we've introduced caching of the php output. The cache lasts 5 mins, so instead of seeing the stats up date live, they could be delay'd upto 5 mins (same with new image uploads etc).

The caching time has been reduced to 30 seconds, which has still seen a *massive* decrease in the load on the server as people requesting the same peices of information from the database reload from cache instead of live.

As DarkKlown said, this may mean images online, forum/image comments, statistics, etc could be 30 seconds or so behind what's really there. This is unavoidable, we moved server a couple of months ago to something more than twice as powerful and it was slowing down to the same level as the old server before the move.
