Just a quick question,will TVARK actually crash down if there are too many people on it? I'm not exactly expecting an audience,just wondering how many are in this small community that might make it crash down.


All websites will "crash" if there's too much traffic to them. Simple as that. All it means they can't serve the requests being asked of them, its what makes DoS attacks effective, except in that case its a deliberate attempt to knock it offline, as opposed to websites are oversubscribed because too many people want to visit them. That effect occurs quite often when there's a major news story like 9/11, and I remember the BBC News and most of the American news sites just couldn't cope with the demand they were facing at that time.
