Maybe they're all hopping on the Skinwalker Ranch bandwagon as the next venue of interest/profit.

The owners should have a notice up of things that do not work on the site i get the lag from 27-35 minutes in the uk and it is annoying .And you have been around long enough to notice how many people do not come back , some real good posters .
Why dont they ask for help fixing it from the members who are well versed or sell up to A/ a consortium or something that would fix it

I think to be fair the mods are in a bit of a hard spot over this one...
Not trying to be a suck up but I imagine that they to are also annoyed about the same things as the rest of the members of ATS and its possible they might even be just as much in the dark about what's going on as the rest of us. !

I always see people compain about the timeouts but i don't get the problem. It's every hour from 27-33 or so. Just remember this and leave it be when it starts doing its thing.

Look, mods, this isn't JUST another "whats with the 20 percent hourly downtime of the site" thread.
Someone honestly needs to figure this crap out. I see so many new threads(and I've authored a few) about this backup nonsense.
This site generates money by hit/view count of those that are probably either not willing/smart enough to use adblockers
More users are being turned off by this 20 percent downtime nonsense
Travel into the future and realize that this problem, if left unaddressed will plummet user interaction/web hits and eventually drive this site down into the dumpster of the internet has beens.
It's not hard to imagine, it's getting old even for the most stalwart users here.
It's not a call to arms, but further ignorance to fix the problem will ultimately render you into AOL irrelevance. And don't cry about it when it happens.
The frequent troll posters here aren't asking for the world on a platter, just a website that operates anywhere within a decade of "current year"
