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.

I am wondering if there is any hit rate studies on

If it is due to the usage of forum, a redesign on the web might help a lot.

If it turned out due to the popularity of mozilla and lots of programs being downloading, I think it is better to conduct a users survry to study how frequent we download; which version(s) we are downloading most etc.,

Any offical mirror sites so that the download traffic would be redirected to other sites.
