We have actually worked on a plan for tomorrow (GASP- PLANNING AHEAD?). What we are going to do is basically shut down every single post except for the Coveritlive livestreaming at 7pm EST. That way, there will be no need for refreshing the website and leading towards the inevitable crash.
What we need, though, is some user support. First, don’t visit old posts- there will be only one post on the front page, and that will be the coveritlive. Second, we need trusted users to help approve comments. Please, if you are a longtime commenters, email Mistermix with your username in the comments and let him know you would like to help out. Mistermix will have instructions above the coveritlive for the volunteers. Once the election is over and I think the server will be stable, I will open comments and old and new posts back up.
Thanks in advance for working with us.
