    RWO seems to go down every game day over the past month. Isn't it based in Singapore? If so it must be by a kid running his hosting through his Singtel iPhone. Has anyone considered changing servers?

    Unfortunately it is a recurring and frustrating problem. Game day is no different to the weeks beforehand. While I fully support the admin volunteers, there is a problem that whomever is hosting the server needs to address. Essentially someone needs to pick up the ball and run with it.

    It looks like the vbulletin software is well out of date. The bottom of our pages shows version 4.2.5. Version 5 was released in 2012 according to Wikipedia! vBulletin - Wikipedia
    Version 6 was apparently released last year https://forum.vbulletin.com/forum/vb...bulletin-6-0-0
    An upgrade may solve (some) of the sites issues?

    This is very likely to be a factor in the issues that the site is having - also running outdated and unsupported versions is a big security risk.

    Looks like there are two upgrade options: a one-off fee (and another fee for further support) to install at the same server, or a hosted "in the cloud" option for a monthly fee. Like others here I'd be happy to contribute financially.

    It seems to me that the performance of both the web server and the database is often poor, which may be due to any or all of the software version, the configuration, inadequate hardware (RAM/CPU) or poor internet connectivity. If the current hosting company is a contributing factor, perhaps the cloud option is worth considering.

    The site admins should upgrade the vBulletin software to the latest stable version as soon as possible.
