uploading is slow.

In the past few weeks, creating new sites has taken longer as the current content server gets more and more bogged down.

The reason this is happening is because during peak time (the afternoons and evenings, weekends) the disks in the content server are overloaded from so many people accessing the site. Until the donations grow enough to actually pay for the new content server, I'd advise you all to wait on creating your sites until non-peak time.

In other news, I've created a "Report this site" feature for people to report sites on the profile pages of every site. Please don't abuse it.

what exactly should people be reporting sites for? Surely not the mundane like keyword abuse and stealing concepts, but the only other use for it i can forsee is when people use ytmnd to advertize or post child porn or something. Could you clarify specifically what we should be on the lookout for?

Hey Max. You may want to make it that a sponsored site will get some front page time (like the moderator favorites) as it stands right now a guy would have to fork over a hundo to get his site on the front page. If there was a rotating list or if the list was bigger than more people might be inclined to sponsor sites.

As with any popular site, whenever a feature is added people will exploit it. I'm sure Max and the other mods are ready for this. But time will tell what the end result will be.

I have the exact same problem as that last guy. It is a miss right now. But at least there trying to fix it. :-)I am also noticing that sites don't seem to load right anymore, and all the newly created sites are usually dead.

You should auto delete sites if the user who created it has not logged in a certain amount of time, except when the site gets a certain amount of views per day. But that is just my opinion.

I would like to state for the record that this whole eBaums thing has just gotten crazy. I hate eBaums. You hate eBaums. Everyone on this site hates eBaums. Now please make sites about something else. That's all I ask. I don't mean to be an *sshole about this but... damn.

Actually I'm pretty sure Max approves of the server being flooded with 60 million sites about this whole thing. I'm sure he's happy that people love YTMND so much. Anyway, I'm dropping this now. Too much attention is being drawn to eBaums.

at least my ebaum-inspired YTMND isn't 'forums dont change facial expressions lolol' as a matter of fact, I think it's the first piece of propaganda in the war and one of the only original ideas to have come from the raids. I won't avdert, but you can see it on my site list.
