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 MZ-forum is to be considered the main place to discuss any Moz related issue, mozilla.org lacking such a place. keeping protests private only helps the ones you protest against. as someone noted elswhere, lots of traffic was likely to be caused by slashdot users who only read the forums, which themselves generate useless traffic by all the images etc.
