Database Issues

The database suffers under high load of many client connections.

We are trying to reduce the load by disabling services temporarily. Buddylist and others may be affected.

Update 11:00: still optimizing components. The situation improves gradually, but will nevertheless take time.

Update 13:00: Operation resumed, but some services disabled. Buddylist status updates, points for the weekend (big sorry), Toplist, and some less visible components. Most important: chat works and people can meet each other. The world is back online.
