Given the recent influx of new members and site traffic, I was curious if there is something we members can do to help improve site performance. For example, I have over 600 pms sitting in my pm box because I am too lazy to go through them to keep the ones I want. If I delete most of them (and others do as well) would that type of thing help the site to run faster?
Also, I've noticed that people often quote posts with large images in them. Does this type of thing suck up a significant amount of memory that in turn slows down the site? I have tried to make a mental note to delete the image when quoting a post containing images, when possible, but am unsure if it makes a difference.
Just curious...any other things we can do?
Helping out how we can will make the site better for everyone.
