And yet.... It continues.. Are we allowed to lock News topics? If they are really pointless after a certain point.. and just lead to more pointless posts such as these.

I hope you can. But if you can't, you should ask Wade about it.

Shut her down Tom! That's my vote on it. I would rather miss it for a few hours now rather than have no site tomorrow or a slow one.

No hanging chads in this vote.

Option #2 seems to be the consensus.

It was pointing out the unnecessarity of your post, since the site had already been down and back up.

Bah, whatever. Enjoy the lame boost to your ego.

Ok this is the one about the site problem thing. I did the calculations. If it takes 5 hours to do 7 percent, its gonna take about 72 hrs to complete it if it maintains speed. So i suggest you do the update on the 3 slowest days of newgrounds. I'm just looking out for thebest site in history!

The guy who figured out how much time it takes

I'm obviously waaaay late on this one, but I think it's obvious what should be done in the future

And in any case, I agree with most of these posts, I would rather have no NG for a couple hours instead of shitty NG for days.

You have your 10 votes...but I would like you to shut it down.

I mean, it would really be better for you and us if you made the site it's normal speed. It would save you time, and probably us. It wouldn't be for long, but it would much worth it and I'm sure that a little period of time wouldn't kill anyone...

2) Shut the site down right now, during peak hours, and get this over with.

That's what I think

How many times has it been said that the site has already been shut down! Do the words just melt into the page or something! Why can't any of you guys listen! The site is fixed. Stop answering for the sake of all things sakable!

I think it would be a good idea to completely shut the site down until its all fixed.

It might be midnight in USA but like 3 pm in other countries in Europe, and besides, I don´t think Tom wants to do this in midnight... well I dont know that but presume he has better things to do

I personally think letting Newgrounds users have a break from it should help.

Might as get the file transfers over and done with quickly while still having a chance to deposit EXP points and see some movies right?
