To All,

I was going to post this up yesterday. The site have been slow, and un-accessible from time to time. This started about a week ago. I have always been honest with all of you so I have no reason to hide this.

1) I have been monitoring the traffic. It has been increasing from week to week. We are growing...FAST. Server will be updated in a month this will increase speed.

2) The software is powered by InfoPop. We are not running the most up to date version; this will be updated by the end of December.

3) The weather. The bandwidth comes in from Allentown, the weather yesterday was bad and caused some power outages. Causing the site to slow and come to a craw almost stopping.

4) New UPS's were installed yesterday to help the power problem.

By January we should be at full muscle to take on more traffic, more users and serve you all faster. Thank you for your concern and patience through the transition. This is a good thing VWF is getting bigger!

I was either think it was because of to many users were on (noticed alot more people posting now), and/or the weather had an effect on it with the ice and everything PA got hit with. Thanks db for filling us in with the details.

VWGTI.com was forced to cease and desist content. Never got to the point for sueing. Just an FYI.

I didn't think you were at the point of actually getting sued. Was it just threat letters from VW saying they would sue or did you just shut it down?
