    Hmmm the only explanation I can think of is that when the models were on wc3sear some had a broken link. And when the models were imported to THW they would still be broken. Only thing I can think of sorry.

    Is downloading down?

    I keep getting a MySQL error when I try to download anything, so it could be just me, or it could be the site. Anyone else having the same problem?

    I just noticed the download failures myself.

    The server has been acting really squirrelly all day.

    When Ralle notices the problem, I'm sure he will fix it in short order.

    I have noticed the server downs have been happening more often and they have been longer. What is happening?

    The server has been having trouble at certain times of day due to heavy traffic.

    It's currently slow (right now) because someone a single person is currently hitting the server with 150 connections.

    EDIT: Fixed. It's now fast again. In fact, the whole site should be running a lot faster now.

    Shouldn't be there an option to prevent such an abuse of the server mass hitting. I do not know everything about these things. :emote_huh:

    Hitting the server?
    If this is related, someone i think is using a clicker prog, they did that to one of my icons, that the same person or related?

    It's a lot harder to do than it seems, mainly because there are so many ways people can be sneaky about overloading a site. (they can do it from multiple locations at once, and it can be hard to track and identify)

    Some sites spend tons of money protecting themselves from traffic attacks.

    Hopefully, this won't be a problem for Hive.
