    I think nuking the entire site or even the forum might be a bit drastic there's lots of great stuff contained within these pages.

    One of the reasons Aria keeps this forum alive is because of the traffic that it generates to it's main site through links to products and other site areas - regardless of how active the forum is.

      I'll never forget the glory days of the Battlefield server. We filled a 32-player server daily for a good 9 months purely from community donations, held numerous giveaways and competitions, and of course fought the good fight against the CPC menace. ATID

            Yeah I check in every couple of days too.

            I reckon things would pick up a bit if the forum was fixed.. Not like it's peak, but still a good community.

              Just logged in for the first time in a while and still somewhat slow to load which is what kept me away before.
              If there was some more posting and as stated the forums were fixed I may visit and post more often.

              I don't know who they are or what they're gonna find out
              But they're gonna find out
              And it's gonna be over real quick"

                given the activity levels, i.e. almost 0 how can this be true??



                got this 4 times this morning over a period of about 40 mins or so, before i could get a "Today's posts" list. Not that there was anything in the "Today's posts" list obviously!!

                  Who knows... It needs fixing though.

                    unfortunately, the forum barely recovered from the previous issue, then the last problem just paved over everything. I log in most days to have a nose, but its hard to really want to engage with nothing ;D

                      I've seen that message so often that when the page just loaded I instinctively went to press ok on the screenshot.

                        I question whether that is still the case because Google penalise slow performing sites as well as sites that don't update often. This forum definitely falls under both categories. Therefore links on this site wouldn't be given that much weight compared to links from other sites. I also think there are some rules about links from sub-domains having less weight that links from external sites.

                        SEO is a constantly moving target though so things might have changed significantly since when I last studied it (which was a couple of years ago now) but I'd still be surprised it this forum actually made a difference to Aria's page rankings.

                          You speak the truth in the most part (probably all of it, but I'm no expert so can't say yes or no ).

                          But even if it makes a small difference, a few hundred quid a year is worth it as, in the world of IT it's very competitive and every little helps (to quote a giant from another industry )

                            This post breaks me heart. So many fond memories, I find it hard to believe it's pretty much over. Seeing no announcements or comps or anything is sad. But I guess at least Aria is still thriving! Made an order tonight actually!

                              There's still a few of us around. To be honest, I think that the forum would pick up again with it's core users if it was fixed.

                                Yeah I must admit Iím struggling to use it in its current state. Is there anyway to fix it? Surely something can be done?
