this seems like a whole lot more than usual, and it's not what I expect to be a busy time (1:37 ET). it's making my NS experience slow!!!! is anybody else noticing this? it took me quite some time to load the post a thread page even.
i mean total. sorry for the multiple posts btw. i was just having loading difficulties and i checked the count and was very surprised with such a high number. it got up to 7000+ and people weren't responding to my pm's or posting anything in the forums so i was wondering if it got all blocked up for a few minutes.
That does sound unusually high. Back in the day the online list used to lag really badly. It would just say people were signed on if they had been on earlier in the day. So either, something was messed with the online list or NS was just straight BALLIN'. I'd like to think its the later.
