You know who you are, so I'm not naming names.

I'm sitting here in performance monitor on my server getting benchmark data, and I can quite literally see every time one of you loads the index, because I watch the cpu spike for several seconds and everything else on the server come to a stop.

Because this is primarily a work server, I can't allow something like the forum to draw that much cpu power away from what it is supposed to be doing (its not that powerful of a server).

So, effecive immediately, I am going into your profiles and dropping the days to show to 3, which is the current default. This only affects the people who are abusing this (aka have stupidly high numbers).

I know the ones who are the worst are both regulars here and don't need to have it as high as they do. So this is your warning.

If you leave it consistantly high, I will hard code your limit to 0. Any questions?
