Hello MUGEN Archivists,

We've experienced multiple server crashes today, resulting in some minor data loss.
About twelve hours of activity were lost : new posts, new members, and any new activity.
No file was lost though as the file server was not affected by the incident.

The files uploaded today were batch restored along their images but some of them must be claimed by their owner as I have no way to recover any data about those files.
The files are there : http://mugenarchive.com/forums/downloads.php?do=cat&id=1
If you've uploaded any of them, please claim the ownership here and the files will be transferred to your account asap.

I apologize for these incidents lately, once again the server is overloaded. I should definitely not complain about the site being ever more popular but it also means the server fees are ever increasing while the website income is low despite the google banner. I suppose most visitors use adblock or never click on any ad. Some corporate patronage would definitely help there.

Regardless I'll upgrade the hardware soon, more memory and CPU power are definitely required to sustain the current activity load.

Men must become more then men, and gears must become more then gears.

you know you could delete some of the dupelcated files on this site that would help greatly with the memory rather then keeping them

also have users upload everything in winrar formate that well downsize the file alot more so it wont take up much space

i agree on deleting ome of the duplicated sprites. However if they do have a bit of tweaks in them then they should stay
