FYI, I am performing some maintenance on the database over the next couple of hours, so you may experience some performance delays over that time.

It may appear that pages seem to take 10 or 15 seconds to load sometimes.

I am trying to minimize the delays, but there's not much I can do about it.

The good news is that it is all for a good cause:  I am trying to improve the search capabilities by creating optimized database queries.  In order to do that, I have to run some operations on the database that temporarily cause slow-downs in performance.

    Hi Todd,

    Love your website, but could I give a suggestion?  Could you create a separate category for all of the people that flood the "LATEST POSTS" section with "Pick 3" stuff?  It makes all of the polls and discussion posts disappear after only a few hours.  I am sure the people that are interested in Pick 3 posts would prefer their own section for that sort of thing.  Just a suggestion, but I feel most people would agree with me. 

    Thanks!

      I agree, people are using the p-3 forum as a second prediction board. A few hours? Try 30 minutes or so. That's why I rarely post in the p-3. Why bother? To find something , you'd have to do a search....LOL

        That's just the nature of forum web sites, especially busy ones like Lottery Post.  There are plenty of tools to find just the posts you're looking for, I'd recommend trying some of the different options available.
