    1.1.3. posts are flooding the site and making the severs busy and making the site messy. There are many new threads that are repeats ex. 20$? omg!
    We have many new visitors and members which means an influx of pointless threads.

    Solution? totally deleted all these repeated threads, and 90% of all 1.1.3. threads..
    just make sure all important stuff is stickied
    give people who are posting sh*ty threads/Posts warnings

    click new posts and look at the crap, i just did and the latest one was a question about macbook air that could be answered at apple.com and the second one was someone whining about 1.1.3. and about 5 of the other recent posts were crap also..

    Please please please delete this stuff
    thank you!

    there is a reason there is a TEMPORARY 1.1.3 section that I added. we will choose what to keep and what to delete from that section once the storm dies down.

    the "active user sessions" data is kept in a temporary table in the database that is valid for 15 minutes.

    i was just tweaking the database server so i had to restart it. the user number will climb again.
