MozillaZine Forums Temporarily Offline

Saturday April 26th, 2003

Due to a large increase in traffic in recent weeks, MozillaZine's bandwidth usage has risen dramatically. We're currently working with our excellent hosts, American Data Technology, Inc., to find a new hosting solution that can accommodate MozillaZine's growing popularity. In the meantime, we've disabled the MozillaZine Forums, which accounted for much of the site's data transfer. This should reduce our bandwidth usage and also eliminate the MySQL errors that many of you have experienced recently. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will endeavour to get the forums up and running again as soon as possible. Thanks to all our readers for your continued support.

"because of the naming controversy or because of all the new people who are now interested in Mozilla"

I'd say the former.

"Why has the reaction been to shut down the forums?"

Because this is what they've done in the past when they require more money. Except the last time they said that they had more money than they actually needed for 1 year of bandwidth. I wonder how much extra bandwidth those database whiners wasted.
