That's a valid complaint.  It would serve us well if the Foundation can pay for dedicated hardware for the forum, instead of the current machine that seems to get overloaded every so often.

Or if the problem is software, pay for someone to fix it or replace it with something that doesn't have this problem.

Yeah, I think the main problem is the database locks.
People discussed about the that previously.

Yeah I vaguely remember that.

I wonder if it's worth it to split the database into an active part (for recent threads) and an archive part (for older threads that are unlikely to change). Most of the lookups will be in the smaller active part, which hopefully will be more performant, and old posts will be migrated to the archive to maintain a maximum active size.

But I could be misunderstanding the problem.

Whatever the problem, it's reasonable to raise money to fix it. We shouldn't expect Vladimir to do all the work for something like this.
