Question Whats the Top 10 worst hacks 4 server load?

Hi peeps

I have lots of hacks installed as i am sure a few of you already know

I think because of this my server load goes from about 0.30 with 2 members
online upto about 2.0 with 8 members online and so on and so on.....

This in turn dramatically slows the forum down, so what i want to do is
remove (if its feasable) the worst hacks for server load....

Therefore i would like you all to list the worst hacks that you know
that cause a lot of server load and hopefully this in turn will help me to
trim the amount of 'ahem, hacks that i have installed an improved the
performance of our forum......

Or, is someone going to tell me thats its nowt to do with the hacks and its
all down to the crappy host i have

Remove any hacks that can simply be done with template edits and template conditionals. There seems to be a rash of them lately. They create server load where none needs to be created. Waste of resources.

And if you do have a crappy host, get a new one.

Hi peeps

I do have VB shout 2.0 but it is only used for the staff (about 6 peeps)
I have somewhere between 100 and 200 hacks install, prob more edging towards 200 What can i say, i am a sucker for a new toy....

I dont think my host is that bad, at present i am on a semi dedicated (forum aint big enough for dedicated yet)

The best way to see what hacks i do have installed would prob be to look at my profile in the mocp Zachery (thats if it shows in there) or i suppose i could copy and past in between code tags but theres a lot and may be too much info to actually post..... Spose the easiest way would be for you to have admin access and then you could actually see all the plugins ya self

well 200 hacks are not good.

.. You should install micro stats, or enable debug mode for yourself and see what your query usage it is at.

Hacks are ment to be addons for exactly what you need, not just new toys you think might be fun.

This is what overhacking causes. untraceable problems.

Only install hacks you can directly make use of or will directly benifit your site.

I've got 3 whole plugins.

1. vbShout

3. VBSHOUT

Great mod, poorly implemented.

Like i say, i have VB shout but is only used for staff purposes...

Most if not all of the hacks i have installed are for a purpose
The hacks i installed for the sheer heel of it (to see what it was about )
have been removed.....

The reason for all the modifications was purely to have a different forum to
the majority of forums that are based on the same idea as mine.

The down side is when you look into a hack (and dont know out about coding)
you are not aware that this may (one day) cause issuses with server resources/load, this is why i am trying to find at least the top 10 worst
hacks for using server resources/load.....

I will be supprised if vb shout does cause much greif for me as like i said its
only for about 7 - people and poss max 4 or 5 at anyone time!

So, other than VB Shout 2.0 and the pager (i have the LPP 1 installed)
what else do you know about that could cause our server grief please?

Can you make a list of what you have installed? There is no top 10 worse, one of your hacks may not be widely used or known but could be causing issues.

200 hacks is overkill, are you positive that you need ever single one?

I've got the arcade, and part of vBadvanced for my news script. Thats realy about it, besides a staff feature. My site is fairly active, adding more hacks wouldn't help it be more active, only more members do.
