Posting late at night is a problem
The past week, posting has become a problem late at night. 11pm PST.
Posts do not go up and do not show until the next day. People keep hitting the post response button several times in an attempt to get some sort of message as to whether it posted or not.
Especially if you are quoting another post in the thread.
Just thought I would mention it.

I administrate the hardware for the forums. At 4:00 AM CST the server dumps and compresses around 5GB of data, which is then sent to and off site server. This consumes a significant amount of resources when this occurs, But we have found this to be the best trade off. Currently if the database is corrupted, hacked, or otherwise damaged it will only be one day behind when restored. We have adopted this policy after having a hard disk corrupt and the last backup was over two weeks old, earlier this year.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
