    As all techiehq users will be aware, the forums have been under a lot of use the last few months, and as such general wear and tear has occurred.
    Part of the fix to this issue is to perform a lower-level de-fragment of the forum software, thus allowing for faster packet transfer rates, and ultimately a smoother experience for all users.
    Red flags have already been assigned to high-wearing areas of the forums, and these will be the ones to have this treatment applied first, almost in a top-down structure.
    I (and all staff here at TechieHQ) are really looking forward to the increase in performance with regards to posting, typing, sorting and all other forum functions.
    Lower-end areas of the forums will have the process applied more towards the end of the cleaning process, as obviously they do not need as much attention.

    Firstly, and perhaps more importantly, for this clean-up to work properly, a few things will need to be put in place for all users, these are as follows:
    Only one user may be allowed to post at a time, this is to prevent queues building up and slowing down the bots that are performing this vitally important task.
    Once said user has posted their message, the bots will proceed to scan and fix any grammatical errors, ASCII coding corruption and/or dust from the users keyboard which can lead to a buildup inside the forum software and lead to overheating.
    Lastly, we at TechieHQ would like to take this opportunity to wish all users the great honor of the event known as 'yad loof lipra' - and look forward to all the new and exciting future for us all!

    Exactly. We will be able to forsee and correctly troubleshoot computer problems before the member ever comes to the board and asks the question.
