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.

The bandwidth on mozillazine is being used up by inefficient forums. Mozilla.org has dedicated servers to host the mozilla releases, nightlies, and source codes. Also there are already mirrors of mozilla.org that can be used. It would be best in the future to have slashdot or other articles refer to mozilla.org so that people can read up on it. Also it would help if Mozilla.org had a more informative introduction on its site.
