The hosting account for the forum has been upgraded. Please monitor the service and report if you see any more

Resource Limit Is Reached

The website is temporarily unable to service your request as it exceeded resource limit. Please try again later.


We may have to upgrade the account further.

Thanks

Could you explain what the problem is in more detail?
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

It's was using too many resources on the server relative to the other customer's requirements. We're hogging the server.

Would it be possible to "fix" that by deleting old accounts and/or threads? Or is it because of (some of) the individual accounts accessing the forum all at once?

No.

I suspect that the server was being oversold, that it had more customers on it than it should have had. This forum really isn't that much busier than it has been in the past.

At one time this website shared a server with at least 7 other websites (that I could find).

Just how much of a load can you put on a Pentium with 512MB of RAM? /snark

Ditto.
Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

I'm not getting any messages, but I am getting some strangely slow response times. Maybe the cause is something else.

I'm still getting them, got another within the last hour.  They don't last as long as they used to seem to last.

I got one earlier today but forgot to write down when it happened. But it's better than it was.

I've been getting them as well, but not nearly as often as before.

got it thee times today
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.
