This message is to explain why some people may have been getting a 'Too many connections' message.
If you have been getting this message when trying to visit this forum:
Too Many Connections
There are currently too many connections to this server. Please check back again in 30 seconds.
This is not a problem with this particular forum but the whole of Proboards server 24. This is a message posted on the Proboards support forum:
As we pass 600,000 boards...
Dear Valued Members,
Many servers are busy right now. Some of you may be seeing the "Too Many Connections" message. Please just wait it out. If the servers didn't take a break they would crash so it is important that you wait the 30 seconds and then try again. Please don't keep re-clicking this only slows the servers down more.
I realize that for many of you this has been going on for a while. We are doing our best to accommodate all the new members we have signing up everyday. In the near future more servers will be purchased as well as upgrades for some of the older servers.

I apologise for this but it is out of my hands so please be patient and try again in a few minutes. This has only happened a few times for me and I have been checking by most days.
I am very pleased with Proboards and this Forum and I'd like to thank everybody at Proboards for this excellent service. ;D
