gallery has been disabled
the gallery was eating up too many resources so i've been forced to close it off until the gallery's database is optimized. if you can help me with bugfixes and optimizations then let me know, but if you seriously don't know your stuff then don't bother. i need an expert that will do things properly and will stick to their word when they say they're going to do something. for the time being i will have to work on a fix by myself and that's going to be quite time consuming given my poor health and low experience.

unless you're a php and sql wizard, nothing.
if everything goes according to plan the gallery should be functioning within a week, but i highly doubt it will. nothing ever seems to go according to plan around here.
i guess you could... pray? if we all come together we can complete the spirit bomb and defeat gygas.

The problem I assume is that there are people who have Crawlers running and are siphoning all the resources, did you get any error messages about the gallery so we could start finding out what is the cause of it?

i can't really show you the report. really what this boils down to is 1: thousands of people use the gallery each day and 2: we're not on a dedicated server. we just don't have the processing power to do this hundreds of times every half hour or so (guessing here).
the list of current requests in the report is several hundred long and mostly contains image fetching requests. once i set up cloudflare all those fetch requests will be directed at the cloudlflare servers so that might be enough to get things back up and running, but i still want to do some routine tasks like defragmenting the database before it goes back online.
note that the 500 error is still popping up without the gallery being open. the forum gets a lot of use too so this isn't ALL because of the gallery. the gallery is just the main offender. the forum has plenty of static content that could be pointed at cloudflare servers as well.
